For centuries, India has lured travellers with its promise of enchanted lands, ancient spice routes, exotic cities, and the dazzling colours and sounds of its endless diversity of peoples and cultures. The country is so vast and varied that nobody could experience it all in a lifetime, let alone in a single trip. However, a tour with an expert guide can introduce you to some of the most unforgettable treasures of this intoxicating country, and capture some of its essence and its beauty.
India tours can take many forms, depending on the type of experience you are looking for. One possibility is an Indian Odyssey, from the vibrant capital Delhi in the north to the magical backwaters of Kerala in the south, including gazing at the renowned Taj Mahal, sailing past the ghats on the sacred River Ganges, and marvelling at the magnificence of the Maharajahs' palaces at Mysore. Alternatively you could concentrate on the enchanting northern province of Rajasthan, exploring the Golden Triangle of the great cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, or choose the temples and plantations of beautiful southern India, travelling by bus, train, rickshaw and boat, and mingling with local people. Any tour, long or short, will just be a taste of this mesmerising land, but it will leave you totally addicted.
