Gate1travel - Gate 1 Travel -15 Day Classic India with Ranthambore
DON'T DO IT - worst trip ever.The itinerary is not as stated as there was supposed to be lots of free time to explore on our own.
Our tour guide made sure that did not happen and we had little to no free time as he used that time to do what he wanted to do. A 30 minutes stop to see a movie theater turned into three hours as the tour director decided we need to sit and watch a movie as is was a new release that he wanted to see - no one traveled all those mile to spend their free time in a movie theater. In Udaipur we were to have the afternoon to enjoy on our own - he did not even get us there until 8:00 pm - he went way out of the way to bring us to a truck stop for lunch and then double back to where we were. One lunch that was supposed to be on our own we were dropped off at a carpet demonstration for 2 hours and were given a stale cheese sandwich and warm soda and that was lunch on our own (I respectfully declined and went without lunch that day).
The tour guide was rude, controlling and condescending to the point he would tell what to order when we were a lunch and dinner - even when they were own our own. He held us captive on the motor coach as much as he possible could.
Stops at sights were brief because he felt it was too hot - we were in India of course it was hot.Our group nick named him "Colonel Klink".
India is a fascinating destination and I will go again but with a reputable company so that I can enjoy the experience.
