Varanasi was the most dramatic (traumatic?). We saw abject poverty alongside beauty. Tordi Garh gave us hope for the future devlopment of Indian villages.
He was great and very helpful. Got the balance between giving us direction and giving us freedom of choice just right.
Take everything recommended in the pre-travel advice leaflet. Try and buy an Indian sim card when you first get there - it is much cheaper to call home with it.

All of it! Truly unforgettable especially Varanasi and the visit to Tordi Garh.
The tour leader, Yadu, was excellent. We couldn't have asked for someone better!
As much as is possible from a 2 week trip to a country!
Go on this tour!

Whilst walking around a temple in Varanasi we came across an English school. They asked us for our help with their lesson and we spent about an hour with them. The kids were so genuine, polite and enthusiastic and it was completely impromptu, I will never forget it.
Our tour leader was amazing! Very knowledgeable and helpful. One day I got very ill and had very intense stomach pains and was in agony, he called the doctor and arranged for me to stay longer at the hotel until I recovered. The manager of the hotel then drove me two hours to meet up with the group later on that day. This was so reassuring and it was all done without any fuss.
Vish made sure we only used local services and stores so that we could put our money back into the local economy. We helped with the lesson as well and this was a learning opportunity for both sides.
Yes, whilst walking through Tordi Garh the waiter at the hotel introduced us to his family and we saw his house. The sleeper train also got us on familiar terms with other people.
Go to India!!! But take a torch and lots of Imodium.
