    The entire trip was perfectly arranged, from the moment we stepped off the airplane in Delhi to leaving two weeks later. The guide was excellent. The hotel choices were first rate! The pre-trip coordination was outstanding and very personal. All (numerous) questions were addressed, and speedily.
