I Found Colors in India That I'd Never Seen Before in the Rainbow of Places I've Been To!

I Found Colors in India That I'd Never Seen Before in the Rainbow of Places I've Been To!
Guest review from a custom trip to India : "Better than one in six people on our planet live in India, and four in a hundred live in the U.S. Yet India's conditions are considered extreme, in spite of the fact that as a proportion of the total population they are quite common. I simply wanted to experience the other end of the spectrum of humanity, and though I'm a fairly experienced traveler, I found colors in India that I'd never seen before in the rainbow of places I've been to." Mike and Nani M. spent 3 weeks exploring India on a custom itinerary that took them from the sands of Rajasthan to the banks of the river Ganges to the foothills of the Himalayas. Their trip was initially inspired by the food trail taken by celeb food critic Anthony Bourdain but quickly morphed into a trip encompassing desert palaces, city...

Grand_Palace_Panorama1
See what the Whorton family has to say about their 12 day Thailand Family Adventure . From elephants to biking to kayaking and beyond Thailand had a little bit of everything for every member of the Whorton family! What places or experiences did you enjoy most and why? Loved Chiang Mai and Railay Beach - very different but each had amazing things to offer. I got my "adventure" in Chiang Mai and my husband got his "beach vacation" down at Railay. Loved the Elephant experience (Patara) in Chiang Mai. An amazing experience and such a well run, caring organization. We learned a lot too! Really liked the bike tour to get to see some parts of true "Thai Living" - actual homes, farms, etc. So peaceful! Also loved kayaking in Railay and we had a lot of fun rock climbing too! Please comment on your local guides: Both women were very different...

Haber Family Journey Through Thailand and Cambodia - Guest Review

Haber Family Journey Through Thailand and Cambodia - Guest Review
The Haber family traveled to Thailand and Cambodia with us in December. They asked us to help plan a trip centered around one very important event - a wedding! Jon's brother was getting married in the town of Khon Kaen and they wanted to explore the region before the big day. We had some big shoes to fill and while the wedding was certainly the highlight it sounds like the day with elephants wasn't too far behind :) Here's what they had to say about their trip: What places or experiences did you enjoy most and why? We enjoyed so many parts of the trip. The cooking class in Chaing Mai was excellent, definitely a favorite part of the trip. The day at the Baanchang Elephant Park was wonderful. Spending a day on motorcycles in Cambodia driving through the jungle was incredible. Seeing all of the ancient temples were amazing, though...

All Around India was the name of the custom itinerary we gave to an intrepid group of 5 Wildland travelers who wandered all over India for 22 days. They started in the North and visited Delhi and the Taj Mahal before setting off in search of tigers in Ranthambhore National Park. From there they jetted south to the east coast of India where they toured cardamom and tea plantations, trekked to waterfalls, and saw elaborate Hindu temples. They ended their trip with a journey to the UNESCO caves of Ellora and Ajanta before spending some time in the heart of Bollywood, Mumbai. Check out what they have to say about their experience!  What places or experiences did you enjoy most and why? The Taj Mahal really was as spectacular as its reputation has it, and is a must-see sight. We also enjoyed Munnar as a welcome respite after many miles of...
