Fab-u-lous ! ....
I have travelled with Imaginative Traveller ~8-10 times now and can't fault their trips, or their customer service ....

A busy itinerary, but capturing all the highlights (as described !). A really interesting trip, with a balance of serene moments (the Ganges cruise / Chitwan National Park) amongst the chaos that is India, Varanasi and/or Delhi, for example. Knowledgeable, local guides throughout. Loved it ..
