Li and I both had a good time on the tour. Our guide and driver were excellent and we had good conversations on the longer drives.I thought Amritsar’s golden palace was one of the more amazing experiences while the ceremony at the Pakistani Border underwhelming.
The long drives impressed upon us the vast scale of India. Our impression was that there is little to see between cities in the semi arid farmlands. Perhaps in future visits to India we would consider this in terms of or destinations and ability to take local flights between major internal destinations.
We also have a better understanding of what “off season” and +40c weather means. It was good in that we saw the Taj Mahal without the high season crowds but also tiring to be out in the afternoon heat. We will likely return to Rajasthan area in cooler months.
Everyone you arraigned for our tour and the people at the Oberoi hotels were wonderful! Hope to see you again!
