Has anyone been to Northern India (Delhi/Agra/Jaipur) with a 4-7 yo?
Does anyone have any magic words of comfort and reassurance or practical advice for me?!I am desperate for advice as have realised it is 4 weeks and am suddenly feeling a bit unprepared.

I expect they will take it more in their stride than you do I have been, but not with children. Have you been before?

have you the rough guide and / or the lonely planet? Worth a look.

Take lots of loo roll and/or tissues and that alcohol handwash that you don't need water for.

Assuming that you haven't been. I agree with Fio and Mrs Badger.
I would also say about water, that you also have to remember not to swallow water in the shower, and use bottled water when you brush your teeth. Also don't be caught out by Ice cream like my dh was
Every where is going to be really crowded, have you got a wristband or somethings similar, at least for the 4 yr old.
If your children have any breathing problems, be aware that Agra in particular is incredibly polluted, (I have Asthma and was on steroids the whole time I was there)
It's all really wonderful though, I hope you enjoy. I really loved Jaipur.
