When we found that the Taj Mahal is close to New Delhi, which was a way for us to fly for Air India for the United States and Canada, we were willing to travel it immediately, but we have a lot of questions:
Should you spend the length of time in the golden triangle?
We had a stopover on the way to America, during which we invested in an old Delhi afternoon, invested in Delhi at night and left for the airport the next morning.
On the return trip, we had a 5-night stopover, we reached late afternoon, spent the night in Delhi, went to New Delhi in the morning, then two nights in Jaipur and one in Agra (next to the Taj Mahal) is called the Golden Triangle Visited the sites. We invested last night in Delhi before returning to Paris the next morning.

For the first time, we were unable to understand that to reach Jaipur at Jaipur, 245 kilometers from Jaipur and 205 kilometers from Agra to Delhi, it would take 5 hours to reach Jaipur for 270 km to reach Jaipur. The answer is simple: Despite the fact that there are freedoms, the fire from Delhi to Jaipur is sluggish because when you share roads with automobile of every size and size, both motor and Do not point to unmorrified, cows, donkeys and pedestrians who roam across the city, whenever there is a city, the distance from Agra to Delhi is less because there is no actual freeway with any animal or pedestrians on it. .
We found that the length of time actually taken by us was right. We did not have to run away and we had time to rest at the end of the day. The only thing we have not done is the shop (we are not consumers), but there were so many functions (and time) to do this, we wanted
Caution: The Taj Mahal does not open on Friday, so you should organize your check systematically, preferably avoid the weekend there.
Should you go alone or get a tour operator?
We were informed by many that we should have a personal organized tour. Keeping our age (sixty-sixty-year) in mind and we do not like to travel in groups, the option was in the middle of alone or searching for a private organized journey. I actually went to India before for myself for professional factors and had no desire for the inconvenience of looking for hotels, restaurants and trains and to find our way in basic form. After looking at the traffic in India, I did not consider driving. Our choice of a personal travel became excellent

How do you find a tour operator?
We went on the trip advisor and I sent the demands to three companies at the top of the list, the same discussion I wanted in which the French guides for Jean Michel included were suggested to me, with a schedule and rate, Found favorable answers. I changed the travel plans for my needs and programs, and India travel sent us a new proposal. We had lots of exchanges during which many of my concerns were addressed and our visa was processed. Then we went into our account in half the quantity in India. We paid the balance on our arrival.
We both were very satisfied with traveling before and after traveling all over India. We were assigned a basic coordinator who satisfied us in the airport and took us to our hotel in a hotel with an assigned motorist who was really friendly and whose English, though not excellent, to interact with us was enough.
The guide joined us in the hotel and stayed with us for the rest of the day. The driver will be locked out of the place which we will check out and then later call us on the guide on our cell phone from the guide.
During the departure of the Golden Triangle, a regional organizer met us at every hotel and after reaching every destination a new guide will be added to us. We had very good Himalayan drivers. He was exceptionally qualified and I was never afraid of Indian traffic. He was actually going to share his vision of India with us and asked a lot of questions about France and Australia.

Guides or motorists will choose our lunch which was not included in the rate. There was no dinner, but there was a continuous food institution in the hotel. We personally had some of the fruit during the night and small times in our space.
The guide took care of buying tickets for various monoliths and we compensated him, he arranged for our elephant and rickshaw flight. They kept the beggar away and generally prepared to see our trouble free and pleasant. Similarly, we do not like the guide who took us near Fatehpur Sikri so that the next day a request for another guide for the Taj Mahal should be requested. Our guide in Jaipur was extraordinary.
The basic employer went with us to the airport on both occasions and provided us with formalities.
We went with the proposed hotels supplied from India Travel, with the proposed hotels, but we could choose a high classification so that we could have the desire to do this (of course with supplementary rate). The first tour was overview on the second trip and we were upgraded for a third time in a single suit. Breakfast was excellent and workers got it, it was just a "worn"

Explained as 'the city of lakes and palaces', Udaipur is very beautiful to visit on your holiday in India. City Palace is not like any other place on earth. Architecture is attractive and 11 are all different inside the palace, but are equally sensational as one another. Generally described as 'Venice of the East', there is a strong performance art scene in the lake city of Udaipur.
The 'Blue City', along with its grand Mehrangarh Fort, is a picturesque paradise of the city along with Mehrangarh fort, Jaswant Thada (burial places of the royal family) and Umeed Bhavan Palace. The old city is a group of spectacular blue structures based on the city wall of the 16th century. A visit to Jodhpur will take you back in time in medieval India, with the smell of sun, lively sarees and ancient structures in every turn.
Reminiscent of Sahara Desert, Sam Red Dunes is an attractive addition to any India tour. Located on the edge of Thar desert outside Jaisalmer, the dunes spread romantic attraction and stunning shapes. The best time to see these tibes is either sunset or dawn. A camel or jeep safari in the dunes is an extraordinary experience. You will be able to move yourself into an era run by the kings. Jaisalmer is also a house for other forts of India, although it is a 'living fort' which is still more in use in reality.

Do you need a visa? Can you request online at this?
For any unknown reason, you need to get an Indian visa before going to India for a night stopover and you can use the entire month only before your view. You also need a square passport photo. There is a site in every country that you have to use through. You cannot use directly for the consulate. We have made a lot of demand for the entire Visa experience because I have two passports and we were entering India two times in less than 45 days. Finally, everything worked, but we had to go to Paris to put us in our applications.
I recommend that you read my post and apply online after the start of a month's period. Descriptions are not always on the site
Which weather can you expect?
Our first visit was in mid-February. In the morning it was hot in Delhi but was not heavy and cooler. Our second viewing was mid-March. We were very hot in the middle of the day, especially in Jaipur and Agra For the Taj Mahal, for our 6.30 o'clock tour, I just need a long shirt, a cap is a must

It included accommodation on the basis of double occupancy, buffet breakfast, rickshaw trip in Delhi and visit to elephant in Jaipur, mineral water throughout the day, regional guides and dinner in an Indian house, all the trips in the air-conditioned vehicle. The last night we had left for the distance, we had to travel.
Tipping is a way of living in India and we were really happy that the visit of India has given us its values. It made it very easy to tip over to planners, drivers, guides, belboys and so on.
