I'm in a pickle and in need of some much needed advise. We are going to Goa in Jan for a month, during this time we want to take a week out and do the golden triangle.We have been looking on the web at the different companies, and prices and I am just stuck as to what to do. We dont have a huge ammount of money put aside for this as it is just an added extra to the holiday. We did originally think about doing the whole thing ourself, then I got a wobble on and thought maybe we would be better going with a company. Now I am not sure what to do. We have been to India on and off for around 13 years but have never done a train journey and this is the way we want to travel from Goa to Delhi. I have, with the help of reveiws on here, looked at hotels, we dont like big deluxe hotels that companies seem to use, but I have seen some wonderful small quirky hotels and these are the type of hotels we like, but the companies I have looked at havent mentioned any of these. Is that good or bad ?? So my dilema is do we go it alone or do it with a tour ? Where do I find prices for trains ? Do they do a mulit journey ticket ? Could I find guides easily when we get to the different places, and maybe a driver ? In the past we have hired a driver to take us to Hampi, but we were based in Goa and had the time to be able to ask around for a driver, this isnt something we will be able to do. So I guess what I'm asking is for some advise I think. I'm rambling now so I'll stop and post. Thanks in advance. Karen.
