The tour was extremely well planned and organised. That made the trip very easy and enjoyable for us. We absolutely loved the Taj Mahal, the Manvar Desert camp and the beautiful city of Udaipur. Our group of 14 was fantastic to travel with and we would certainly recommend Insider Journeys.
Not actually a bad point ......but we didn't really factor in the long trips on the bus between destinations. However, the bus was big and very comfortable and the bus driver was fantastic on the sometimes chaotic roads of India.

Tour leader was excellent and very knowledgeable. Thoroughly enjoyed going into national parks and villages.
Some local guides were difficult to understand, the group missed good photo opportunities in some locations.

The tour programme was well paced but there was the option (which some people took on occasions) to take time out.
The tiger safari was a disappointment - mainly because we only saw a tiger paw print but no tiger. I realise this is out of Insider Journey's control! I think the afternoon tiger safari could be deleted from the tour. It was very much a repeat of the morning and the roads are so rough!
