Avoid. For most people, the first 48 hours will be lost in jet lag (or feeling miserable about the sudden change of environment). An 8-day trip would be a sheer exhaustion for most people. It will be tough on the body.

Ridiculous generalization. If you have 8 days and are interested in going to India, then this is a super deal.

I took a 10-day China tour with smartTours a few years ago and it was a tremendous value. Hotels and flights were great and no pressure to take their add-ons. I haven't been to India with them but I can recommend them as a company.

I frequently take TPAC flights to/from Asia and Australia.(8 to 10 roundtrips per year) I guess I do it so often that I forget they are 15 to 16 hour nonstop flights. Smilie I also know friend/co-workers who freakout when their JFK-LAX flight is delayed by just 1 hour. I often wonder how they can survive 15-hour nonstop flights. Smilie

Hmm...I would not recommend these dates.

Jaipur's pretty hot April-November, though it cools down a bit if it rains. But here's the deal: it's in a desert state.

Delhi and Agra are pretty hot and humid through September. I'm talking at least >85F and >60% relative humidity.

My 2 cents the pic shown is the art Kathakali and is from down south
The tour however is for north India
Just saying you may not spot that just incase you are interested for the pic 😉

I'm in the south and it's been 95 to 100 degrees almost every single day for the last 3 weeks. On top of that, there's heavy soaking rain almost every 2 to 3 days.

85 degrees sounds better than what I've got here. Frown

When I last traveled with smartTours they would not let me change the dates on the flights. They were very strict about this.
