Nutan, Shilpi, Trini, and others from TravelLocal an their local partners, put together a dynamite trip for us through the Golden Triangle of Northern India, then south to Kerala State. We were met everyday by wondrously helpful guides and drivers. Nutan did an excellent job of finding places that matched our interests in wildlife and birds as well as local arts and culture. Our accommodations were uniformly superb. It was positively the best "food" trip we have ever taken. The sites and monuments are memorable, of course, but it was the people we came in contact with that made this trip so outstanding. The people at our lodgings: Thikana, Coral Court, Sher Garh, Loharu House, Chandelao Garh, Casino Hotel, Wildernest, and Flamingo Marari were fantastic! We encourage anyone thinking about a trip like this to include a visit to Chandelao, a village between Jaipur and Jodpur, a great respite from the hectic bigger "tourist" cities. Finally, our main drivers, Krishan and Sharaf, were absolutely The Best. Thank you all again for this unforgettable experience! Pete Hoeger/Deb Lerdal, Minnesota, USA
Can't think of a thing.
Do your homework. Go beyond the typical tourist sites. Sample the local neighborhoods.
Chandelao Garh, the village, and Sunder Rang Arts and Crafts Centre.
