“A brilliant experience. Seeing Rajasthan close up in the raw. Great itinerary with good hotels throughout. Finally a word for the guides Krishna and Sanjay and the support team. They were fantastic and their knowledge and experience of the history and culture topped the trip. They ensured the group gelled from the start and many friends have been made. It has whetted our appetite to do more of this in the future. I thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone who likes to cycle and see and feel the atmosphere of India.”
