It's no secret that movies inspire travelers to visit places they see on the big screen. Now one travel company has designed a tour to India based on the movie " The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel . " The film takes place in Rajasthan, and the 13-day tour follows suit. However participants stay in four-star hotels rather than the down-at-the-heel "hotel" shown in the film (though there's a visit to that site). The trip begins and ends in Delhi and includes a tuk-tuk ride, a visit to Kanota Castle where the Viceroy Club was set in the film, and a day trip to Rawla Kumpar to see the hotel featured in the movie.
