Reisestil
Seien wir mal ehrlich: Niemand geht auf Reisen, um den Spaß zu erleben für 3 Stunden in einer Warteschlange für Tickets zu stehen oder erfolglos nach einem Restaurant mit authentischen Speisen zu suchen (um schließlich aufzugeben und bei McDonalds zu landen). Deshalb beinhalten unsere Reisen einige Eintrittsgebühren zu den Hauptsehenswürdigkeiten, die Unterkünfte, alle Transportmittel, gelegentliche Mahlzeiten sowie das Know-How eines örtlichen erfahren Reiseführers. Zwar gibt es auch genügend Zeit, damit du dein eigenes Ding tun kannst, es sind aber auch Gruppenaktivitäten enthalten - weil manche Dinge gemeinsam einfach mehr Spaß machen! Diese Tour ist eine Backpacker-Tour, jedoch mit einer guten Portion Planung, so dass du dich auf das Wesentliche konzentrieren kannst: Das Erleben und Entdecken von Indien!
