Hi Fellow Travelers,

I just returned from a wonderful trip to China and have started thinking about my next adventure. So, I’m considering a trip to India and see I have 2 choices. The 12 Day Kaleidoscope of India or the 15 Day Classic India with Ranthambore. I’d like to see Varanasi and Ranthambore, unfortunately both aren’t on one trip thus the dilemma. Perhaps someone who’s been there can offer some insight to help me decide which one to choose. Thanks.

We did the trip including Varanasi, plus the extension to Nepal (the Nepal extension is not a good option at the moment - don't know when it will be available again, and even if it is, may not be advisable.)  That was in 2008, and are following up with the trip with Ranthambore this fall.  Most first time travelers to India choose the trip with Varanasi, and that would by my advice.

We're signed up for the 15 day Classic India with Ranthambore for Jan. 26, 2016.  However, we have already been to Varanasi, so here's my suggestion.

Varanasi is truly a unique experience that you won't see anywhere else in the world. It's unforgettable. Ranthambore is a wildlife park with limited wildlife but a place I've always wanted to see, which is why we chose this tour. It's also more difficult to see on your own because of limited places to stay. 

So I would say choose the tour with Varanasi. And to see animals (but not tigers--which isn't guaranteed anyway in Rathambore) take the Gate 1 So. Africa tour. We did it in Dec. 2014 and it was one of the best travel experiences ever!
