Prepare to be astounded by the cultural melting pot of India, the most diverse country on Earth. From the metropolitan buzz of its cities to its expansive deserts; its sacred, snow-capped Himalayas to its thick, tropical jungles; India is a complex tapestry of environments and peoples.

Wander through verdant tea plantations, trek through mountain valleys or walk across a living bridge. Observe vibrant wildlife and perhaps spot the flaming tail of a tiger. Interact with locals and witness an ancient way of life at a lively tribal festival. Shop in the frenzied bazaars and barter your way through the fragrant spice stalls ready for a cooking class that will leave you hungry for more. And when it`s time to wind down, retreat to India`s exotic shores to relax and reflect.


India Tours by Region


North India Tours

Experience the buzz of big cities like Delhi and Kolkata, the captivating fortress towns of Rajasthan, the serene beauty of the lake palaces at Udaipur and the mystique of the desert at night. Discover the sacred River Ganges, venture into the heart of tiger territory in the jungle, and admire the lavish artwork of India`s temples. Let your taste buds succumb to a wealth of warming flavours and spices, ride a camel across the Thar desert, and trek through scenic Himalayan villages as you surrender to the mesmerising diversity of India`s North.



North East India Tours

Dominated by the mighty Himalayas, bordering Tibet, Myanmar, Bangladesh and Bhutan, North East India is a fascinating tapestry of culture. Unparalleled in the diversity and isolation of its tribes, the people here continue an authentic, traditional way of life in one of the world`s bio-diversity hot-spots. Join tribal celebrations at Nagaland`s Hornbill Festival, search for the unicorn rhino on elephant back in Kazironga. Cross living root bridges in Meghalaya and visit Tawang, the world`s largest Buddhist monastery, perched on top of a mountain. North East India offers the ultimate off-the-beaten-track cultural experiences.




South India Tours

A paradise of rolling hills, peaceful backwaters and charming spice plantations, the feel of life in South India is more leisurely than in the North, but its treasures are no less spell-binding. See the traditional river houseboats as you meander through the backwaters at Kerala, bask in the warmth of Goa`s white sand beaches, and watch a traditional `snake boat` race. Explore the beguiling cave temples at Karnakata, and walk through stunning landscapes following tea and spice trails.

"In your testimonials I recognise all the things that gave me such pleasure on my own trip. Here was India, dust & all, with its charm, its ridiculousness, its colour, sense of humour, unexpected delights & above all its smiling, friendly people. So the heritage forts & palaces are stunning, but they are only an impressive reminder of where the country has come from. It`s everyday life that lets you know what the country is today. Thanks to your company I was able to experience all of this - just what I wanted."

- Christine Barratt, UK
