From beginning to end, in every way, during every day this was a fantastic trip to uttarakhand. We knew the pace would be hectic - up and out early with early evening returns or hotel check-in and it was but I think you know that before you decide to take the trip. The days were long but well planned and executed. I would say everything ran like a well tuned machine. The hotels and inns were lovely - especially the smaller, privately owned ones. All of the meals were delicious and there was always plenty to eat. We were very lucky in that everyone was always on time and in the place they were supposed to be. We all got along great - no bickering about anything! If one of us had any kind of problem - with anything - there was someone there to lend a hand. In closing I would also like to say that our tour guide, and our driver were top notch in every respect and we really appreciated everything that ritual holidays did for us.
