    Climate:
    India is a large country with a range of varying climates - it is tropical in the South and alpine in the North in the Himalayas. The following information is specific to the region of this tour (Delhi, Rajasthan and Agra).

    In the winter months the temperatures range from 22°C to 5°C and can be quite cold in the early mornings so good to pack layers.

    The summer can be very hot and spicy. In North India from mid April to mid May the temperatures can be in the late 30’s to early 40’s with pleasant and slightly cool mornings (especially in wildlife parks). From mid May to mid June the days are hot with temperatures in the mid 40s. July and August are the rainy months and so whilst the rain can bring the temperatures down, some days can be very humid. In September the rains are on and off and the weather starts to cool. April is considered a shoulder month of the hot season and can be a great time to travel.

    All the cars have air conditioning as do all the rooms. Hats, caps, umbrellas and sunglasses help a lot. Of course weather being weather may have its own ideas so the above is only a guideline - always best to be prepared for all eventualities!

    Monsoon season: July to September.

    Dry season: April to June.

    Peak season: October to April is a popular time for visitors due to the milder and cool climate. 

    Travelbay tip: Ask the local guides about the best places to dine.

    In response to some customers questions here are a few guidelines:

    It is usual to tip the waiters, porters, guides and drivers. Tips are not included in the bills for hotels, transport companies or any other suppliers. At hotels and restaurants, about 10% of the bill is usually acceptable. Tipping is not necessary for taxis or for cheaper restaurants. It is a good idea to check if service charges are included in your restaurant bill. If not, a tip of 10% of the total bill is normal. 

    Although we give below a few general guidelines, it is to be remembered that tipping is a sign of gratification for good service, and therefore please view the guidelines as the middle ground, which can be adjusted depending on the level of service you feel you have received.
