India was never high on my list of places I wanted to go to, but when I saw that the package price on a deal in our Top 20 was essentially the same as the cost of the airfare, India and the Taj Mahal quickly moved up to the top spot on my bucket list.
World wonders, elephant rides, pedicab demolition derbies -- the usual vacation fun.
When I travel, I don’t like to waste time and use a lot of vacation days. I like to cover as much ground possible with the shortest amount of time so the three-city tour (Delhi, Agra and Jaipur – also known as the Golden Triangle) in a week was the perfect trip for me to get a taste of what India was all about.
After exploring India, I can tell you it isn’t the type of trip you plan on your own. You will want a guide -- whether through an escorted trip or if you hire a driver to take you around. This trip won’t break the bank, but it will give you plenty of memories.
