Please help with this itinerary and critique!

Hello India experts and fellow trip advisor members,

Please critique this itinerary and offer suggestions as to: order of itinerary, most convenient and quickest form of transportation (flights are fine), and if we should see any alternate destinations to the ones listed (I have been going back and forth with Jaipur vs. Udaipur). Some parts of the itinerary can not be changed as I am attending a wedding.

I have also just returned from the desert in Morocco so do not need to visit this time around in an India itinerary.

Day 1 thru 4 – Calangute, Goa

Day 5: Kochi (best way to travel from Goa? What is earliest time we can arrive in Kochi?)

Day 6: Houseboat

Day 7: Kumarakon

Day 8: Jaipur (fly from Kochi? Does the order for Day 8 thru 15 make sense?)

Day 9: Jaipur and night in Ranthambore Park

Day 10: Ranthambore Park

Day 11: Varanasi

Day 12: Varanasi

Day 13: Agra

Day 14: Delhi

Day 15: Delhi

Day 16 thru to 19: Ludhiana for wedding (how to arrive to Ludhiana?)


I look forward to feedback!

Thanks in advance!

I would suggest that you decide your direction. Your travel plan has everything west to south to north to east. If you have not seen kerala and wish to see it then spend more time there. If you wish to see forest then there is Wayanad(Tholpetty sanctuary) and also Madhumalai sancturay (Munnar and Thekkady). This would save travelling time and money both. You can try and visit my blog www.indus-explorer.blogspot.com to get more details. I have travelled by car from Mumbai.

Once you have seen kerala and goa you can proceed to Delhi and then to Ludhiana. While at delhi please visit Agra, Mathura and Fatehpur sikri (2 days).

The best way to travel is by train from short distance and flight for long distances.
