India - tips, must-see's and do it alone?
Posted September 8th, 2012 - 5:05 pm by from Sydney, Australia (Permalink)
Hi there

I'm going to a friends wedding in Bangalore, India in March next year (I need to be in Bangalore from Monday 25 March till Monday 1 April).

So before that I'd like to travel India.

I am a female, have travelled Europe alone (with Busabout which is still a little protected, and still struggled a bit with the few trains I took independently in between Busabout stops), and so I'm not sure if I should go it alone, or if I should do a tour.

The tours I've looked at (Intrepid and Gecko) look ok but I plan to spend around 2 weeks travelling and want to make the most of it.

I think I'd like to see the Ganges and the Taj Mahal... other than that I really don't know where to start!!!

Any hints, tips, and advice on whether you think I should go it alone (or alternatively - which tour I should do) I'd really appreciate. Frankly, I'm not all that confident in going it alone and would prefer a safety net, similar to how I found Busabout to be for me travelling alone in Europe.

Thanks to you all in advance!

Dear Nadia,

It's one of the best time to visit India ... It will be best suggested to book ur tickets early for a great discount ... U can look at travelling to Goa but I guess living in Sydney u would want to explore more of India and the deserts and may be the mountains but Thr problem is making all of it happen in the same trip ... So my suggestion ur doing the right thing planning ... Www. Makemytrip.com should be of great help and further feel free to ask if u need to find out anything ...

Have a great trip...
