Escorted Tours of India

India is a fascinating and vibrant country to visit, with a seemingly infinite number of attractions: from the mesmerising Taj Mahal to Rajasthan’s forts and palaces; the beaches of Goa to the world-class Indian cuisine, shops and museums of Delhi; from the tiger-inhabited natural parks to the cool hill station of Shimla.
India’s huge size and unfamiliarity can easily overwhelm, so we recommend a tour with a reliable, handpicked operator as one of the best ways to ensure your escorted tour goes smoothly and with the greatest of ease. Your tour manager will look after every detail for you, so you can give your full attention to relaxing and enjoying the culture, food and unique Indian sights.

Things to do

Taj Mahal
The iconic Indian palace is awe-inspiring considering it was completed in 1648 AD. The architectonic beauty of the palace is outstanding from the way the light plays on the arches and domes to the similarity of each side. To get a truly remarkable view of the Taj Mahal go at dawn when the mist is rising from the Yamuna River as it will look as though the palace is hoovering.

Ranthambhore National Park
One of the biggest and most renowned parks in Northern India, it stretches across an area of 392 sq km. Ranthambore National Park first became famous as being a hunting ground for the Maharajas of Jaipur. Today it is an animal sanctuary and is the best location in India to see wild tigers in their natural habitat.

The Himalayas
The Himalayas mountain range separates the Indian subcontinent from the rest of Asia. Home to the tallest peak in the world, Mount Everest, there is plenty to see and do if trekking is not your thing. If you are interested in exploring the Himalayan kingdom we recommend joining a tour of India and Nepal to get the best experience.

Indian Railways
Rail journeys in India are more than just a way to get around, they are an experience in their own right. The trains travel through all types of terrain, the “toy train” zig-zags its way through the mountains past tea plantations and across deserts and past old forts and cities. Life on board will give you fantastic insight into noisy, chaotic, but welcoming and vibrant Indian lifestyle.

Best Ways to Get Around

Frequently Asked Questions

  • India’s golden triangle consists of the three main cities in the north-west of the country - Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. If it is your first time to India, then we highly recommend booking yourself onto a Golden Triangle Tour as it is the best way to experience the best India has to offer.
  • The more comfortable months to visit the Golden Triangle are October through to mid-April as the temperatures tend to be between 22-32°C, making it easier to walk and explore all the amazing wonders to be seen.
  • When the Prince of Wales and Queen Victoria visited India in 1876, the Maharaja wanted to make sure they felt welcomed to the city and by doing so painted the buildings in pink, since pink denotes the colour of hospitality. The tradition has been sincerely followed by the residents who are now, by law, compelled to maintain the pink colour.
  • River cruises in India run from October through to March, however weather conditions in December and early January can make cruises less than ideal due to smog.
  • The Taj Mahal is open to the public all year round, but it is best to visit in the winter months between October and February to avoid the heat and summer rains.

    For the best time of day look to get to the Taj Mahal early around 6am when the gates open as the building changes colour as the sun rises and the jewels sparkle.
