Travelling the highway in Delhi and seeing the nomads moving their cattle in the hundreds down the middle of the road with the traffic banked up behind them waiting patiently was a real eye opener. We all climbed down from the bus and took lots of photos. India was fantastic and I now tell everyone to look at Trip a Deal for their next holiday and I can't wait for my next trip with Trip a Deal.

This photo was from a recent trip to India with a very small group of Australians. WHAT A WONDERFUL TRIP. I cannot praise enough our guide and the warm hospitality of the Indian people. Our guide went out of his way to make our tour absolutely one to remember. We were matched with people the same age and meals and hotels were of a very high standard. Would do another tour with trip a deal in a heartbeat. This is a photo of our fun loving group.

TripADeal, how wonderful to experience life from a completely different perspective, to be guided thru the lives and towns of a country so different from our own in Australia, just observing there creative modes of transport gave us more than a few giggles. We have returned home enriched in so many ways with memories and new friends, we really can"t wait to book another TripADeal adventure.

Thanks to the amazing deal from Tripadeal my husband and I were able to celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary at the Taj Mahal, the most romantic icon in the world, in India this year! The whole 11 day trip was an experience of a lifetime. To see this country of contrasts with its rich and powerful history, at the same time as the poverty and squalor, was a cathartic experience and has changed me for ever.
