I have had 2 long holidays in India and bought rail passes (1 month and 2 months), first class. It is the easiest way to see India, from comfortable trains, no hassle as you watch the countryside and towns go by. You can stop where you want and get a taxi or bus from there if necessary. If you want to meet locals, pick up a daily paper. Blink and someone else will be reading it. Sometimes I travelled by night, sleeping on the train and then did cities like Hyderabad by day before getting on the train again that night.

Cars are usually hired in India with a driver. However, some are good are some are awful. I have memories on a bus of overtaking on a blind corner, then our driver slowed down as he recognised the driver of the bus we were overtaking and shouted greetings to him. Luckily nothing came the other way, though I have seen some burnt out buses where that might have been what happened.

Lonely Planet does an excellent guide. A good map and planning helps.
