Hier noch ein paar Tipps: Da die Preise für die optionalen Exkursionen in Euro angegeben sind, lohnt es sich für diese ein paar Euros mitzunehmen (man kann natürlich auch in Rupees zahlen). Wenn der Guide zur Mittagspause ein Restaurant vorschlägt, gerne bei Ankunft nach Alternativen schauen. Die Buffets in Restaurants und Hotels liegen meist zwischen 7 und 12 Euro umgerechnet, günstiger geht es in sogenannten Rotti Shops oder Bakeries, sowie kleineren Restaurants in der Umgebung. Aufpassen sollte man bei den „kostenlosen Führungen“ zu Teefabriken, Holzschnitzereien und Edelsteinmanufakturen, die auch nicht im Programm angegeben sind. Absicht dahinter ist, dass Touristen im Anschluss die Produkte zu meist erhöhten Preisen kaufen sollen.

I would like to mention the local assistant. . Chanaka, a lovely friendly person who took care of all our bags and needs with a big smile. Really great job from the whole team. The only small negative was that I had booked and paid for an airport to hotel transfer on arrival which wasn't there. I tried to call the local agent number provided but there was no answer so I got a taxi.

We were the only 3 British on the trip, the rest were Dutch; they seemed suprised we were on the trip. However, this was no problem, as we got on with everyone. I was going to suggest you advertise more in Britain, to make the British aware of these trips, but then on second thoughts, it might be better to keep it Dutch; we might not have got on so well with the British!
