Overall the tour was ok, but for me there wasn’t enough exposure to “real” India and far too much exposure to high pressure sales pitches for marble, rugs and jewellery. The Taj Mahal was truly breathtaking and a real highlight, and the optional add-on “Backstreets of Delhi” walking tour to sample various street foods was also excellent and well worth doing. Our guide was excellent and informative, but the itinerary could be greatly improved.

It was an amazing tour with a wonderful group of people and a knowledgeable guide. I would highly recommend the Old Delhi street food tour prior to your trip - it was a great introduction to India. The itinerary was varied with lots of interesting places to see and a good mix of tourist sites, shopping and nature. Our guide Karun was friendly and helpful and went out of his way to give us a truly Indian experience. I highly recommend this tour.

This was a very well thought out tour, well organised and efficiently run.

All elements were tailored to the clients and the guides, Yusuf and Vijay went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed a varied and enjoyable experience and that at all times we felt looked after and importantly, safe.

My, very small, criticisms were the choice of the first hotel in Dehli, which, although well placed was not all that comfortable (no sun loungers by the pool - and indeed no access to the pool area on two days when it had private functions) and very loud music keeping us awake until 4 am) and the fact that our guide, Yusuf, was not on the second and third safari trips with us at the national park - where some of our party experienced problems which would not have happened if he had been in attendance)

There were however many highlights, enhanced by the quality of the tour guides you use, including the visits to the Taj and Agra. We loved the rickshaw ride in old Dehli and our stay in Dhaulpur and the choice of hotels on the rest of the tour were very good.

Special thanks to Yusuf for his many tales which brought the attractions and country alive for us all.

This was a great our, not too big a group and a wonderful diversity of participants. I appreciated being able to contribute to the tip kitty and not have to be concerned with having "change" for tips.

Yusuf was an excellent tour director; very knowledgeable and continually making small adjustments to improve the flow of the visit. His willingness to talk about his personal experiences made the tour much more interesting. I appreciate being able to contribute to the school in Karauli and knowing the money will be used appropriately.

Satta was a brilliant tour guide the tour was an amazing experience and On the Go didn’t fail on anything. Thank you for a wonderful trip and another life changing memory. We were so lucky to be there for the Holi festival and Satta arranged a last minute itinerary to replace the school holiday trip which had to be cancelled due to closure for the holiday. What fun we had to return to childhood covering each other in powder colour to the sound of a DJ and drums. The hot air balloon trip was superb and the pilot was experienced and gave me great confidence. I saw the sunrise from the air and we were welcomed with banana bread and Chai on arrival. The Taj Mahal was exquisite and I enjoyed every minute. The food was delicious and with all the right precautions I didn’t suffer from Delhi belly. I wish I could eat curry everyday and have learned so much about Indian food. I saw tigers on the safari and a menagerie of animals on the streets. The Hindu values were interesting and the sad part was the slums and the poor beggars. Thank you OTG and I will be back for another adventure soon!

The tour overall exceeded my expectations. I thank you. I have no negatives and I really appreciated the effort and time by everyone with On the Go. The experiences in Agra [Taj and Fort Agra], Jaipur [Amber Fort] and Ranthambore [Seeing a Tiger/wildlife and the change in Scenery from urban to national park] were wonderful.

MERELY OBSERVATIONS:

Observations include time on the bus seemed excessive. I thought maybe we were limited in the places to eat while traveling and this may have been a reason to drive out of the way on a couple of the days. I realize our trip was altered due to hotel accommodations, but I also felt the sequence of the destinations could have reduced time on the bus.

The accommodations were good. I felt most places were fairly modern and relatively clean. There was plenty of bottled water and I never felt dehydrated during the trip. The hotel in Jaipur [Mandawa Haveli] was by far the best maintained. The hotel in Karauli was in the need of a renovation [Bhanwar Vilas Palace].

Everyone on the tour was wonderful. I am not sure how you can ensure such a wonderful array of fellow tourists. Everyone was mature, professional with a good sense of humor.

Yusef worked hard and should be recognised. Even with a good group there are always challenges. The Bus driver was fantastic and should receive a nice bonus. I feel he never took excessive risk and made wise road/driving decisions. Please make sure On the Go retains his services and rewards him.

I hope to use On the Go in my future travels. I have referred you to others. My next overseas trip may not be for another 18 months, but I will strongly consider On the Go.

Overall the tour was ok, but for me there wasn’t enough exposure to “real” India and far too much exposure to high pressure sales pitches for marble, rugs and jewellery. The Taj Mahal was truly breathtaking and a real highlight, and the optional add-on “Backstreets of Delhi” walking tour to sample various street foods was also excellent and well worth doing. Our guide was excellent and informative, but the itinerary could be greatly improved.
