Even if the point of your upcoming trip to India is to partake in some heritage or wellness experiences, it is important that you are prepared for the style of tour you have booked. We have compiled this list of tips to ensure that your holiday is as enjoyable as possible; it is important that you take note of as many as possible, as you will (most likely) be travelling in unfamiliar territory.
Consider the amount of physical activity that you are likely to be involved in. You will probably be doing a lot of walking, as the tours are designed to showcase the very best of the city you are visiting, and wellness experiences may include yoga. Ensure that you are in good physical condition before leaving.
Consider the types of activities that you are likely to partake in. You might spend hours wandering around ancient temples, you might find yourself on the back of an elephant or camel, or you might spend most of the day in a bus. It is important that you are dressed suitably and have appropriate footwear for all activities.
Consider how much money you can reasonably afford to spend during your tour, then make sure you stick to it. Don’t spend more than you can afford and don’t spend all of your budget within the first few days; you ability to enjoy the experience will be severely impaired if you have debt hanging over your head.
This is another fear of travellers; your motorcycle slowly putters to a stop and the rest of the tour disappears into the distance without you. If this happens, ask for directions to the nearest shop or even house where fuel is available. Please be aware that it will cost you a small fortune.

Don’t forego insurance in a bid to save money!
