It was a great trip and a great way to see India. I would go again with Geckos and I meet a lot of great people on the tour. The best way to get around was the tuk tuks - they were an eye opener

The people, languages, customs, food and landscapes are hugely diverse and fascinating: In India, chaotic cities, colourful saris, rattling trains, holy rivers, welcoming villagers, world-renowned cuisine, hustling, bustling streets and romantic, captivating sights, sounds, scents and tastes weave together in an ever-fresh jumble, while in Sri Lanka, sleepy towns, historic fortresses and temples set snug in rolling hills, alongside wildlife reserves, charming colonial bungalows, beautiful beaches and the mad capital will similarly enthral.View all India trips
