Taj and Tigers Tour


In late February 2012 we set off on a trip to northern India, at least partly to celebrate Janet's imminent 50th birthday. This was an escorted tour, but it was also a special one-off tour for members of the “ Frequent Virgin Club” — a club exclusively for people who have travelled with Virgin Holidays on a frequent basis. As such, it incorporated the features of Virgin Holidays' regular Taj and Tigers tour, but with quite a few extra features, which really helped it to feel like the trip of a lifetime.

One small “drawback”, if you can call it that, is that we came back with over a thousand photos to sort through! We couldn't possibly put up a completely comprehensive record of the holiday, and if we did it would take far too long to view, but the following is a collection of pages from the most interesting parts of the tour. Clicking on the photos below will take you to the appropriate pages.
