Reviews India Tours
Amanda Walters Perth - My son and I were lucky enough to attend Susan's Varanasi & Pushkar trip in November 2022 and wow, were we blown away! The itinerary was incredible and very thoughtfully planned by Atik and Susan. What a pleasure to travel in a small group with likeminded people and such a professional guide.
The accommodation was beautiful, some traditional Haveli's and some stunning modern hotels, we even spent one night in a several hundred year old fort! We travelled as a group in our private airconditioned bus and were looked after every step of the way.
We've returned home with so many wonderful memories and thousands of photographs! I can't recommend Susan's tours highly enough. Don't hesitate, you're in excellent hands.

Max and Carrol Wannell Perth - We went with Susan Moss on her India tour, November 6 to 20 2022. We landed at New Delhi airport and were met by our guide Atik Ahmed. The next day we checked out of our hotel and flew to Varanasi. The city had drawn hundreds of Hindus who were bathing in Ganges River's sacred waters. This was a sight to behold. Getting to the main ghat we were crushed by the thousand Hindu's all rushing to bathe in the Ganges, so as to perform funeral rites and cleanse themselves.
This is one of the highlights of our trip. Plenty of photo opportunities there. Most of the people did not mind having their photo taken. We boarded a boat to witness people throwing thousands of Diyas on the river dedicating them to their gods.
The next day travel to Pushkar to witness the camel fair. This year there were very few camels but it was still a very interesting place to photograph. Day 7 we drove to Ranakpur where we saw and photographed people wearing red turbans. Great to photograph.
Then on to Udaipur where we went to the wholesale vegetable market which was a great place to photograph people and market stalls.
At Jaipur we visited the Jantar Mantar Observatory. Plenty of time to photograph the astronomical instruments, very remarkable for the time. Then onto Agra where we were first in line to visit the Taj Mahal. Our guide on this visit was excellent. He knew where to go to get the best shot without people and the timing of the rising sun which made for excellent photographic shots.
Over-all this tour was fantastic and we would recommend it to anyone interested in photography or just having a great tour of India.
