I have been having "fun" trying to figure out what are the heritage hotels and tourist hotels and which city/town has which one for this trip. Although several heritage hotels are named on the itinerary there are indeed more that are not.
I understand the reluctancy of ImTrav in naming hotels as they can change but....in order to obtain our India visa we will need the start and finish hotels in Delhi.
We will have to apply for our visas in September, 2009 as we leave the end of October and we require more than one month's notice prior to departure in order to ensure that we obtain the India visa (processing alone takes 10 working days on a first come first serve basis and then we have to receive the visas). So as soon as the Delhi hotels are available we would appreciate receiving this information. Thank you.
In the meantime, as I said, I have been reading about the various heritage hotels and 3-star hotels in the locations that Sameer will be taking his tour and look forward to being pleasantly surprised.
The more travelogues I read about others travels to Rajasthan and what there is to see and do, the more excited I am.
Thanks for putting together such a wonderful itinerary. Looking forward to the feedback on this trip versus "Amongst the Maharajahs" as this trip includes many of the same destinations and more!
