    DAY 2 - SUKHOTHAI
    Apparently riding a bike helps build new brain cells in the hippocampus - the bit of your brain responsible for memory (sadly not a university for hippos). So you'll never forget all the temples you see today. Travel to Sukhothai - 'The Dawn of Happiness'. Ride bicycles around the temples and other archaeological relics in Sukhothai's historic area. Visit a local pottery factory in the area.

  • Get your haggle on in Delhi before legging it to Varanasi for a sunrise boat ride on the holy Ganges.

India has embraced the power of the horn: Short blasts let the drivers know you're there, long blasts tell someone to hurry up and continuous bleeps from motorbikes happen for now reason whatsoever.

    DAY 7: TORDI GARH
    No auto rickshaws, no touts, no hurry, no worry...Tordi's just that kind of place. Scramble onto a camel cart for a village tour and say Namaste to the shy but friendly locals. Did you spot the horse with the blue eyes? Drive through beautiful countryside to Tordi Garh, a village that few travellers venture to. Meet locals, see the old village temple and wander through the markets. Visit ruined temples and a nearby fortress. Stay overnight in the palace at Tordi.

    DAY 8-9: JAIPUR

what are people saying about tours?

Having not travelled too much I wasn't sure if a tour would be be my cup of tea. Oh how I was wrong, we had an extremely packed 1 week on the west coast of USA and saw some amazing things including The Grand Canyon and Monument Valley, and the small group was filled with great people, very down to earth and loads of fun. Highly recommended!
