A country by name, but a continent in scale, India in one word is diversity. Its north is banded by the peaks of the Himalaya. Moving south, you pass through Rajasthan, a microcosm of India with its forts, palaces and temples, and the Taj Mahal, but also its bustling markets and opportunities to spot tiger. In India’s northeast corner, Calcutta still exudes its colonial heritage in a landscape clothed with tea plantations.
West coast Mumbai is an improbable proposition – a hub of manufacturing where you can wander among art deco architecture or through a teeming bazaar. Down in India’s south, cruising Kerala’s backwaters on a converted rice barge is a suitably relaxed way to embrace this region’s laid-back approach to life. Our India specialists use their unsurpassed experience of India in all its rich variety to create superb tailor-made tours.
