1) A Sparkling Culture
“The holiday was informative, enjoyable, life-changing and really broadened my outlook of other cultures,” explains Dorothy Nolan who travelled to India with Travel Department. “India is so vibrant and exotic, I really saw a world unlike anything I’ve experienced before.
“In addition to seeing historical sights such as the National Museum of Ghandi, we learned about the different cultures; why Hindu women wear a red dot on their forehead (it’s a symbol of marriage) and how Indian families are becoming more modern in structure.”
2) A Marble Masterpiece
The Taj Mahal attracts approximately 60,000 visitors a day. With so many visitors to India taking the trip to the mausoleum, does it live up to the hype? According to Dorothy it exceeds it!
“It’s on the level of the Grand Canyon. The beauty of it stands out instantly. Your jaw will drop!”
3) Brilliant Guides
Dorothy enthuses that Travel Department tour guides really make the holiday so special. “Our guide was a Hindu lady with a great sense of humour. She got on with everyone on the trip.”
“Most importantly, she looked after us. If we wanted to buy anything off the street merchants or stalls she would negotiate for us. She really couldn’t do enough.”
4) Travel Department take care of everything for you.
One of the best things about taking a Travel Department holiday is that everything is included.
“You don’t need to worry about anything. The tours and meals are included in the price, as well as flights and accommodation. It makes the whole experience much more relaxing.”
5) The Taste of the Locals
Indian food is cooked around the world, but how did Dorothy find the real deal?
“It was all delicious, fresh and spicy. That said, there was something for everyone and you could order less spicy food and European dishes. Everything was geared towards the tourist and that made all the difference.
