How was your Explore Tour Leader?
"Abi – dear Abi – the Best Leader ever,
Competent, organised, funny and clever -
Intrepidly leading our motley great band
Across Rajasthan, through its cities and sand,
Mandawa’s Diwali – you lost no one there -
In spite of the mobs we’re secure in your care.
Jaisalmer doctors – Pushkar’s huge Fair –
We all emerged safely, and gladly aware
That Abi was waiting – big smiles on his face
To whisk us all off to the next special place.
In Udaipur – leaving us freely to roam
He then brought us all to his own family home -
Delightfully welcomed, and watered and fed,
He then had us driven back happy to bed.
Lastly in Delhi – without fuss or strain
He sent us off calmly to airport or train.
Abi – dear Abi – The Best in our eyes
We know you deserve that Best Leader First Prize!"
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
"To anyone heading out Rajasthan-wise
A few “words of wisdom” to you lucky guys –
1. Make sure that your camel has stirrups – if not
Your legs will get ragged, your bum burning hot.
2. Make sure that your bottom is padded up high
If not – it will rub raw – and blood makes you cry.
3.Germoline plastered on thickly, we think
Cures all saddle sores – and will turn your pants pink.
4. If at any point you go
Off Exploring – purely SOLO
Kindly tell your entire group
Lest they fear you’re in the soup –
Panicking, and tearing hair –
Tell them WHERE if you’re not there."
