Mandawa is situated on the Silk Road in India, which crossed the whole of Rajasthan to connect the Middle East with China. This turned this desert region into a prosperous area, where rich traders created small towns as a base for their operations. Mandawa is the essence of rural India and is a beautiful place to visit to discover the infinite splendour of the Havelis and palatial mansions decorated with frescos and which are home to families who live there for a monthly rent of 15 rupees.
“The hotels were all excellent international hotels, we thought the excursions were well thought out and loved the chaotic train journeys.
We thought our guide Yazz was very knowledgeable about his country and the customs and was flexible with peoples requests.
Luckily for us, we did see a tiger in the National park which we didn't really expect to thanks to the local guide.”
“We would like to Congratulate you on an amazing trip!!! We thought the organisation was fantastic and at no time were we let down! The agents on route were always there to meet us and our driver was always on time.”
“The three hotels we stayed at were first class. Staff at all of them brilliant. Our guides and transport good. We liked southern India a lot more than the North. We learnt a lot of new things and customs”
“Our time at Ranthambore was excellent, in that we saw a tiger on the morning safari. Some beautiful pictures were taken.”
“‘I have no hesitation in recommending both Exoticca Travel and Indian Routes to anyone who wants to see and experience the real India. Our hotels were great and offered and eclectic menu to satisfy the most discerning clientele. The luxury of the hotels was to be savoured in the evenings but a world away from everyday India.’
