I had a great time on the tour. I recently went back to visit India after 25 years. I was staying in Kolkata and wanted to take a day to get away from the hustle and bustle. It was an experience getting on the ferry and the ride to and from Ganga Sagar was breathtaking. I was able to experience the other side of India, the quiet beautiful villages with lush land. Once we got to our destination the beach was superb. I stood there for awhile taking in the beautiful surroundings. My tour director was very knowledgeable and spoke three languages which was impressive. I recommend taking this trip and leaving early as possible in the morning due to the four+ hour drive each way to get to the destination.
