Sealord - You have unique experiences, having lived in India and SE Asia for lengthy times, that probably 95% or more of Tauck travelers don't have. For me personally, the Protrait of India Tour and the Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand tours rank just below our Kenya/Tanzania tour and our Peru/Galapagos tour, which puts them higher than various European tours we've taken. Note - We toured China and Australian/New Zealand prior to discovering Tauck. Touring those places via Tauck could have them ranked very high as well. My ranking is mostly based on uniqueness of the wildlife and differences of the cultures. That is why for me personally the European tours, while still exceptionally fun and enjoyable, rank lower. Bottom line - having just completed the Portrait of India tour last year, I would highly recommend it.

    Mentioning someone in a discussion (like this: @Name) is a great way to encourage dialog and let them know who you’re talking to.
