Change of Itinerary for 2016
This is for those of you who have been on this tour. We are signed up for a January 2016 tour, and Tauck has just finalized the itinerary. I am personally disappointed to see that they have eliminated the Khajuraho/Orchha piece. They have added an additional night in Udaipur with an optional (extra cost) balloon ride. I am very happy with the balloon ride and the extra night in Udaipur but was looking forward to Khajuraho. What say you, past travelers? Was the plane, bus, train just too complicated to go from Varanasi and/or do you feel that Khajuraho was not really worth the complicated travel day?? I have to believe (after 13 trips) that those "Hope & Trust Cards" reflected a discontent with that piece. Interestingly enough, the base price actually dropped. Go figure! Now if they could just figure a way to incorporate Jaisalmer into this tour, I would be a happy camper!! I've checked that out and the only "easy" way is on the Palace Train (repeating much of the Tauck tour) or an extension from A & K (shuush! Don't let Tauck know I checked that out!!!) from Mumbai for much longer (and, more money) than we want to spend there.
