Fantastic trip - well managed, great hotel accommodation, safe driver. I travelled with my wife, we were part of a group of 10. Our guide was Ibrahim – best guide.
Highlights of our tour was, The Taj Mahal, Red fort, Hawa Mahal, Qutub Minar- anything you have ever heard and read about it is an understatement. Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of world, I liked the most.
Food at the hotels was good, but we tasted the real Indian food (Hot and Spicy), in the the smaller venues and stalls... and bus driver and our guide Ibrahim was very nice and helpful. We enjoyed much and had unforgetable memory of life time.
Very highly recommended! LHN
I just completed the India Golden Triangle tour with Luxury Holidays Nepal. It was a great experience to have a taste of India. Tour itinerary was perfect than expected. I was solo traveller but joined group. We spend first two nights in Delhi where we visited a mosque, fort and the streets of Old Delhi. The word chaos best describe the the experience and environment of Old Delhi but it seems to work well. Jaipur, was our another destination where we spend 2 nights, the beautiful old pink city with its palace and other astonishing observatory and ancient fort. We had a shopping there and bought beautiful camel hair rug. One night in Agra where one of the Seven Wonders of the World lives, The Taj Mahal- it is an absolute symbol signifying love. It is truly a beautiful piece of architect. After a great time in Agra we drive back to Delhi for another nights to visit temples and other monuments in New Delhi. Every experience I had is embedded into my memory, India has a strong spirituality about it. Travelling in India would be much harder if I was not connected with LHN, I am much grateful for the LHN and our guide Ibrahim, he was the most caring, informative person you could wish for and we were grateful to have him as tour leader. He always make sure we are enjoying the trip and helped fellow travellers in our group with all sorts of medical needs and was very organise. The hotels and hospitality we stayed in were too good. The most challenging aspects of travelling in India includes the heat and noise. Our tour group of 13 were all lovely people and had great fun to see the sights. Once again many thanks to Ibrahim for great experience.

When the Moghul Empire invaded during the sixteenth century, they left a significant mark on the Indian cuisine, according to the Texas A&M University. Indian cuisine is also influenced by many other countries. It is known for its large assortment of dishes and its liberal use of herbs and spices. Cooking styles vary from region to region.
Wheat, Basmati rice and pulses with Chana (Bengal gram) are important staples of the Indian diet. The food is rich with curries and spices, including ginger, coriander, cardamom, turmeric, dried hot peppers, and cinnamon, among others. Chutneys — thick condiments and spreads made from assorted fruits and vegetables such as tamarind and tomatoes and mint, cilantro and other herbs — are used generously in Indian cooking.
Many Hindus are vegetarians, but lamb and chicken are common in main dishes for non-vegetarians. The Guardian reports that between 20 percent and 40 percent of India's population is vegetarian.
Much of Indian food is eaten with fingers or bread used as utensils. There is a wide array of breads served with meals, including naan, a leavened, oven-baked flatbread, and bhatoora, a fried, fluffy flatbread common in North India and eaten with chickpea curry.

Indian clothing is closely identified with the colorful silk saris worn by many of the country’s women. The traditional clothing for men is the dhoti, an unstitched piece of cloth that is tied around the waist and legs. Men also wear a kurta, a loose shirt that is worn about knee-length. For special occasions, men wear a sherwani, which is a long coat that is buttoned up to the collar and down to the knees. The Nehru jacket is a shorter version of a sherwani.
India is situated in Southern Asia, bordering the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal, between Burma and Pakistan.
The climate in India varies from a tropical monsoon climate in the south to a temperate climate in the north. If you are thinking of Visiting Delhi (the capital of India) then best to visit it in October, November, February and March. That's when the nights are cool and the days are filled with a little sunshine. May, June and July are very hot with temperatures over 45 degrees (113 Fahrenheit). It is a dry heat and is sometimes accompanied by dusty desert winds. Most of the rain falls between July and September but they are not the tropical rains you'll experience in India's coastal cities.
We do not hope that there may arise any serious problem for you in your journey, but if you get caught by serious illness, then we will do our best to take you to the nearest hospital possible. So, it is good for you to have insurance which will cover your cost. Be Insured. (See the travel insurance page for more information)
