I was on a two week trip to India in February 2019 - started in Bangalore and ended up-north in Delhi.

First of which I had extensively read about, and the later I had heard about a lot, mainly from Pakistanis with a UP background pre-partition.

I hired the services of a local tour company named TornosIndia to make the best use of my time and I’m confident in saying this is the most organised and well run tour company…
