I went to this Indian trip in Yevgeniy Ikhelzon's group. It was great because we saw the REAL country. We visited many places that I did not know about or would not dare to go to alone, places where no tourist company would take you. It was cool) Also, the atmosphere in group was very warm and hearty)
