I really do not know where to start to describe the experience which was the real Exotic Marigold Hotel Tour. I entered the realms of the Tour with an open mind and no real expectations, apart from the fact that it was, for me, an adventure. Each phase of the journey was enthralling and magical for me.

The magic of the Taj Mahal, the Red Fort, Jaipur the pink city, the city palace and beautiful palace of the winds, the Castle Kanota (venue of the Viceroy Club in the film), the stunning lake city of Udaipur and of course the Ravla Khempur (site of the exotic marigold hotel) and not least seeing the fine Marwari horses just blew my mind.

I fell totally in love with India – not just the sites, but the people I met. The tour enabled me to enjoy the experience of a lifetime, and it has encouraged me to continue to explore this wonderful country.

Last, but by no means least. Our tour had the most amazing, kind, gentle, knowledgeable and giving guide who looked after us and gave us the best possible experience. Thank you to Wild Frontiers and the best of thank you’s to the most exceptional of tour guides.
