Fantastic news for fans of all our tours in India!
Amongst the Maharajahs has been selected as one of the "National Geographic Traveler Magazine's 2009 Tours of a Lifetime!". Here at Imaginative Traveller we are extremley proud of our team in India, and it shows just the fantastic product we have!
Hans, our Destination manager in India is obviously pleased, and says the following:
"It is great news that our `Amongst the Maharajahs' tour has been selected by the National Geographic Traveler as a Tour of a Lifetime!
According to the National Geographic Traveler, "every (selected) tour, whatever its price tag, offers small-group, thoughtfully crafted experiences that are eco- and culturally sensitive, provide uncommon access, and foster interaction with the locals."
This is exactly what we have tried to do with the `Amongst the Maharajahs'
tour. In places like Pachewar, Khempur and Chandelao you will find no other tourists, and a visit here therefore offers a great chance to the see village life, interact with the local community, and to learn about the art, culture and heritage of Rajasthan.
I still remember that when we first suggested the itinerary a lot of eyebrows were raised. It was thought that the itinerary included so many off-the-beaten track places that it was unlikely anyone would book. However, in subsequent years Amongst the Maharajahs became a hugely popular tour because it became obvious that our clients are looking for such in-depth, genuine experiences.
One of the many factors in the huge success of this trip is the choice of the tour leaders. We have selected those Rajput tour leaders who themselves come from some aristocratic background which opens doors to them which may be inaccessible to others. Clients have hugely appreciated this as they felt truly `Amongst the Maharajahs'!
Thanks Hans and all of the team in India for this fantastic product!
