Gwalior-Orchha-Khajuraho + tigers. Driver?

On Christmas 2013 I could spend 14 days (included the travel from and back to Europe) for the following itinerary: Delhi-Agra (with Fatehpur Sikri)-Gwalior-Orchha-Khajuraho-(Panna NP en route?)-Bandhavgarh NP-Kanha NP. Then flight from Jabalpur to Delhi and back to Europe.

A lot of things in a very short time, so I want to save time by:

- spending really few time in Delhi (just the necessary). I will visit it properly in the following trip (may be few months later).

- travelling only by car (apart from the flight Jabalpur-Delhi).

I would know:

1) how many nights would you stay in any of the above mentioned places?

2) should I look for an indipendent driver or should I contact a travel agent? Any advise?

Hi Ciuto,

You can choose the services of Indian based tour operator as there are many suggestions and recommendations for them on this site as they can provide you car and driver too....operators like Icon India ,elegant journeys and few more have good reviews and recommendations here.

You can spend Delhi 2 nights,Agra 2 nights,Gwalior 1 night,Orchha1 night,Khajuraho2 nights and 2/3 nights Bhandavgarh....if possible add Jaipur in trip.

The trip can be done in this order---Delhi>Jaipur>Agra>Gwalior>Orchha>Khajuraho>Bhandhavgarh.

Ranthambore Tiger Park is also famous for Tiger presence.

For any other travel related queries search in the box above corner.

Thanks and Regards

Rashid Agra

You could use the train for the section up to Khajuraho and use a car for your wildlife park travel. Not much point in shifting from one park to another during your short stay and you should consider doing one of Bandavgarh or Kanha and then Pench. You would need at least one night in each of Agra,Gwalior,Orchha,Khajuraho. Orchha is worth spending a second night at.

The road from Orchha to Gwalior is really bad - takes time. We did Khajahuro to Gwalior recently, stopping at Orchha for a quick look/lunch. It was a long day. We went on to Agra.

As for agents, we did this as part of a 3 week tour mainly around Rajasthan. Look no further than TGS Tours. Jaipur based, been providing cars/drivers/hotel bookings etc for over 50 years. Absolutely immaculate support and service. You will find a lot of good reviews of them on TA.
