Good things happen when we travel

India travel experiences of a lifetime

  • Personalised travel advice

  • In-destination support

  • ABTOT & ATOL financial protection

From shimmering temples to snow-tipped peaks, India is one colourful and chaotic jumble of spiritualism and sweeping landscapes. Go in search of wild tigers, drift through the backwaters of Kerala on a traditional rice barge, try a homestay in the heart of the Himalayas and stay in an elegant Maharaja palace. Our India holidays are filled with eye-opening experiences.

Bite-sized trips, itineraries or tailor-made trips

We use a selection of our bite-sized trips to create ready to book inspiring itineraries that get you up close to real India. Our bite-sized trips include locally-run accommodation and meaningful experiences, and typically last 2-5 days. You can either pick a selection that you like the look of and we will combine them to create a tailor-made holiday to India just for you. Or book one of our ready made itineraries (we can tweak them to add an extra night here and there or throw in a little upgrade if you wish).

Our Travel Specialists are destination experts and can advise you on the best routes and places to stay, adapting the trip to suit your wishes. Get in touch with our team to start planning your dream India holiday.
