Amazing trip. Highly recommend!
We've always wanted to see the Taj Mahal, but weren't sure that was enough to justify a trip to India. Moreover, we've been warned by fellow travelers about the crowds in India, the street vendors, the water, and even the food. Our interest was piqued, though, when we saw Tauck's itinerary for the Northern India and Nepal tour. Combining the Taj Mahal with a fly-by of Mount Everest and safaris in both Nepal and India was enough to convince us to try it, and we weren't disappointed. We just came back from an amazing trip, one that exceeded all expectations. We had a wonderful tour director, beautiful hotels (our room in Agra had a view of the Taj Mahal), well-planned and exciting excursions (including a safari on elephant-back tracking rhinos!), and great local guides. Not being a fan of Indian food, I was pleasantly surprised at the availability of Western food at all of our first-class accommodations. We probably would never travel to India or Nepal on our own, and we're glad we did it with Tauck. This was truly a trip of a lifetime.
