So our holiday of a lifetime began with a bang……we were so lucky to book our tours with private tour everything was perfect from start to finish. The Indian leg of our Asian holiday ( well actually honeymoon!! WAAAAA) was the highlight. From our hotel to every tour it was just spectacular, I cant recommend private tour enough, we had some special circumstances with accessibility (my husband is in a wheelchair) and they helped with everything…. Nothing was a problem…. Photos to follow Leon And Jerry
