    Yes, we’ve been to India, but looks like you didn’t need any tips.:-))
    (sorry missed your reply earlier)

    We took an 8 day highlight tour with Smartours in 2010, the year before Turkey.
    My goal was simply the Taj Mahal but also amazed by the whole experience.

    I also agree completely with your observations….grinding poverty, but amazing history.

    Really enjoyed your posts. Lots of interesting details documented.

      Thanks you guys. We are having a great trip. Unfortunately my brother and sister-in-law couldn’t make it. That was our initial motivation in going back to this great area. We agree with your tips about Phoenix, and, since this is our third trip to the area, we’ve done ’em all! We’re sure the upcoming visit of your special group will be fabulous; they are quite a wonderful family. Also hope we all can get together soon.
