Your overall comments on the trip and the travel company?
Our 14 day tour of India included visits to prime destinations such as Leh, Ladakh, Manali, Shimla, Delhi, and Agra was beyond excellent. Our travel company went out of their way to help plan our vacation and took care of every little detail during our travel. Trusting these India travel specialists with our travel planning was the best decision we made and I would recommend them to anyone looking to travel to India.

What were the most enjoyable or memorable parts of your trip?
Our visit to Nubra Valley and Pangong Lake in Ladakh were most memorable. The views from 17,500 ft in the air were breathtaking, really a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Although we suffered from breathing problems and severe cold due to the elevation, all was forgotten when we finally reached our destinations. We also very much enjoyed Manali as there are a wide variety of activities available such as white-water rafting in the Beas river, buying shawls from shawl factories in Kullu, shopping in Mall Road, etc. And our final destination, Taj Mahal, was the most enjoyable part of our trip and was the perfect ending to our journey.
