We returned in April from a brilliant holiday in India & Nepal with plenty of early starts and so much packed in, Taj Mahal, 2 Ganges River Trips, Karma Sutra Temples, Flight Over The Himalayas, Kathmandu, Elephant Ride, Rickshaw Ride, Sunrise Over The Annapurna, Indian Train Journey to name but a few. India the usual exciting chaos and Nepal breathtakingly calm. Hotels all 4 or 5 star except the more basic Chetwin National Park Resort. However all very good. Riviera Holidays admin was fine also Sarah our Tour Guide was excellent plus good local guides. Generally meals out, drinks etc were very reasonable in India and even more so in Nepal. Slight downsides were the amount of time spent in traffic jams in Delhi when we wondered if we could have been in a better located hotel and Day 8 when we undertook the short flight from Varanasi to Kathmandu but did little else and no lunch was available. Nevertheless although we came home short of sleep and exhausted we had a truly memorable holiday.

It was a great tour, Gerald Deslandes an excellent ArtGuide and looked after us all really well.
Second time around this holiday was just as good, although we did feel the walking group was a little larger than ideal this time. Angela, Stelios, Manolis at the Galini Beach & everyone else involved did an excellent job in providing us with a most enjoyable & well-organised holiday.
A great tour, my husband and I both had a most enjoyable time. Angela was the best tour guide I have met she was able to keep everyone happy and found extra excursions which we enjoyed. Best holiday we have hade for a long time
Long day travelling, thought there must be a shorter route. Tullio the tour manager was excellent. His kindness and understanding towards some memebers of the tour with difficulties were impressive as were his sense of humour and patience.

A lovely holiday with a caring informative tour guide. What more could you want?
by Mr Plummer
Very interesting tour giving an insight of the region and a chance to see several different places. It was the first time our guide had taken that tour but she had information from the previous guide to pass on regarding local restaurants, local buses, trains etc. for our free day.
Very well organised tour, took us around easily. Enjoyed dinner on the SS Great Britain. Rain couldn't be blamed on Travel Editions !

The hotel was excellent, it could not be faulted. Our tour manager, Alex Patrimonio made sure everyone was well looked after, he has a lovely personality and struck just the right chord, not intrusive but helpful, he could not have done more making sure we were kept informed when demonstrations in Paris meant we missed our connection. Well done Alex.
Paul Atterbury was an excellent choice of speaker and added to the overall experience.
