Tips

The best period regarding weather extends from September to March. The best period regarding the price of hotels is the "low" season, from April to August.

If you have enough flexibility try to be present in India during the two big local festivals: Diwali (end of October / beginning of November) and Holi (usually beginning of March) to enjoy the festive atmosphere.

For a short stay (about a week), target for example 2 or 3 days in Jaipur, 1 day in Taj Mahal, 2 days in Udaipur and 1 or 2 days in Jodphur.

For a longer stay (two weeks or more), take the opportunity to fully explore Rajasthan through activities and workshops to probe the traditional local culture, or target the main cities of Rajasthan (Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodphur ) as well as the Taj Mahal and spend 5 days to a week in the calm of the Himalayas.

It is tempting to plan to visit one city a day. To fully enjoy your stay, take the time to discover the main cities and their atmospheres by staying a few days. This alleviates fatigue related to travel, cultural shock and possible health concerns.

Although Delhi is the capital of India, some famous landmarks are worth a look and many tourist routes pass through Delhi's airport, we advise travelers instead to target safer, quieter and less expensive cities. Travelers' feedbacks on their stay in Delhi are not often positive.
Several means of transport are at your disposal for affordable prices. The very particular way of driving and the density of the road traffic are part of the elements which push avoiding driving a vehicle. This also requires time consuming formalities and several insurers can refuse coverage of damage if you drove in India.
Everything is different: the notion of time, the differences between social categories, infrastructures ... to fully enjoy the experience, it is necessary to know at least the local culture, from the perspective of living to the Indian rhythm (often punctuated by unpredictable surprises). Even if you choose high standards infrastructures for accommodation, the experience will necessarily be immersive and with inevitable cultural confrontation.

Florent StepOut Abroad / Advisor for Touristic trips to India

We never get bored in India, there is always something going on, and it is important to take this aspect into account to better apprehend the Indian experience. There will be unforeseen events, your patience will be put to a test and some aspects of Indian culture (especially the differences between social categories) are sometimes hard to accept for westerners. But the cultural challenge is well worth the counterweight of human and touristic experiences. The price/value ratio is also a big asset of India.
