Think Twice about whether to even VISIT that country!
primitive roads shared with Cattle and rickshaws
You WILL get dysentary especially when the guide Virendra has you eat lunch outdoors with flies all over at truck stops. Also the Hotels with a few exceptiohs were pretty marginal. The Pugmark of Rathembore Jungle had NO heat and it Does get cold there in December! the Lotus of Udaipur was an "upgrade" I'd hate to see what a downgrade looks like! One VERRY rickety elevator poor service at the restaurant and noisy parties at night!
The historic hotel in Kota had NO teapot no bottled water and they wouldnt fix the TV reception
Also the Guide shlepped us to LOTS of rug and gift shops for his kickback. ALL guides do this but this particular trip was particulary egregious.
The elephant ride in Jaipur was terrifying sidesaddle affair.
Go semi independent take trains between major cities. Don't waste your money1!
