No words can describe how incredible the Rajasthan Unlimited tour was! Having traveled extensively, both independently and with other adventure tour groups, Reality Tours really do deliver what they promise. I walked away having felt like I experienced the “real” India, not as a tourist getting on and off mini-buses, but as an individual wanting to drink in every bit of an amazing country. An experience I will never forget.
This was more than a holiday, it was an experience, much of which I will not forget, as it was so thought provoking. Unless you have been to this part of the world, it is difficult to describe in words the sights, smells and sounds that you encounter. Krishna was a fantastic guide with the patience of a saint. His knowledge, insights and the friendships he makes with all around him must make him one of the best people to show you the ‘real’ India. I felt privileged to have seen the slums in Mumbai, we were made welcome by some of the poorest people and the ways in which livings were being made was humbling. It is good to know that they are financing education and working with the people to try and improve the lives of people living here. There were so many highlights, sharing a meal with a lovely Indian family in their home, seeing the Bollywood movie in an Indian cinema and watching one being made from a rooftop in Agra! If you relish the thought of the unexpected and want to see some authentic Indian life, this tour is for you.
We saw the real India and had a wonderful guide who knew the area well and took us to places and restaurants that we wouldn’t have visited by ourselves. We had so many diverse experiences as well as seeing the sights, bike-riding, camel trekking, train travel, rickshaw travel (4 people plus our luggage in 1 rickshaw is still very memorable!). We watched a Bollywood film in an amazing cinema, ate with local families in their homes and immersed ourselves in the sights and sounds of Rajasthan.
