Trip Grading: Easy to Moderate
This is an easy to moderate touring trip, staying in the best available hotels (3-5 Star) with facilities to match their star rating. Please note that road conditions in South Asia leave a lot to be desired and the traffic can appear to be wild and unregulated and horns are used more often than brakes.
Sightseeing excursions and intercity drives can be exhausting and long (5-6 hours), thus giving the tour a “moderate” rating. Bathroom facilities during sight seeing excursions and long drives are frequently nonexistent and limited to the facilities at a local restaurant, which could be just an “out-house.” Inter India flights can be delayed without reason, or much advance notice.
South Asian cuisine is spicy non vegetarian and vegetarian dishes. If you prefer not to eat spicy food every day, you can ask that they be prepared with “mild spices.” Most of the hotels featured in this itinerary have restaurants that also offer some “western/continental” dishes. Flexibility and a sense of humor are essential ingredients for travel in India.
