My husband and I are spending 6 weeks in India, arriving in Mumbai 6/2/2011-leaving Mumbai 20/03/2011.
We would like to see as much as we can without constantly being on the move. We are also unsure whether to book a complete itinerary with a travel agent before leaving or book the first few nights and transport to next destination then go it alone? (it is our first time travelling)
We would like to see a good portion of the north and south, including Holy Varanasi, Agra, Haridwar and Rishikesh in the north, and Gokrana, Udupi and Tirupati in the South. We are open to suggestions.
I welcome any advice people can give us - routes and itinerary's, types of accommodation, modes of transport, what to book before we leave, how easy it is to book things when we are there etc etc.
We are looking to have a budget of between £3000-4000, but this needs to cover our 6 weeks in Bali after India.
I look forward to any advice given, love and gratitude to you all xx
