Great tour! Absolutely exceeded my expectations about accommodations (never travel this well on my own!). The "roam" aspect provided the cultural and local contact that I hoped to experience.

I wanted a budget tour where I could be with the local people, and that's exactly what I got. Everything was well organized, and - as a single female traveler - I never felt unsafe or insecure.

I had an unbelievable experience on the Roam India tour. Everything about it surpassed my expectations, especially the hotels. This tour had such a great variety of things to do, sure to spark any interest. The people that I met on this tour were some of the most amazing travelers with such cool stories. I would recommend this style of travel to anyone and everyone!

It was my first experience with a group tour and I loved it. Traveling in India alone can be complicated and I did appreciate the smooth operation.

The accommodation was better than expected. The long train and bus trips were a little tiresome. Our tour leader was very helpful and patient with our group.

Covered a lot of ground. It was a very convenient way to see so much in a short space of time, without the hassle of arranging transportation and accommodation was taken care of.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed everything about this basic itinerary. It gave us an excellent insight into the crazy busy life in India and covered most places of interests in Rajistan. We feel incredibly fortunate to have had Parakman Singh 'Perry' as our tour guide, his all round organization was just fantastic and he was always very happy to help out further with anything anyone in the group required. All in all an action packed adventure that I know anyone looking to see the 'real India' will thoroughly enjoy. Thank you for a great experience!

My tour guide Karan Khushwant was the best group leader I had so far from G Adventures. He was very ambitious and he did more than he had to. Thank you for that.
