What Is It That You Look For In A Holiday?


What is it that you look for in a holiday? Is it to flop on a beach and catch up on the latest from your favourite author? Do you love walking or trekking? Do you like the thrill of adventure, white water rafting, kayaking, horse riding, camel safaris, zip lining or paragliding? Would you like to learn how to cook your favourite curry, have lunch with a local family or would you like to meet a Rajput princess? How would you like to see where priceless jewels are polished in the back streets of Jaipur or visit India’s most famous yet barely visited ghost town? How about a day at the races, Calcutta style, a ride ‘Maharajah style’ in a vintage car or explore the country by Royal Enfield motorbike? All of these experiences are possible and more!

Where to Visit

India - Genuine Warmth And Hospitality!


India has a wealth of monuments, world heritage sights, countless languages, religions and ethnic groups, a plethora of local textiles, handicrafts and cuisines, to a gamut of birds and wildlife. All of these are housed between the mountains of the Himalayas, the plains of the Deccan, the beaches of Goa, the deserts of Rajasthan and Gujarat; the waterways of Kerala, the forests of Madhya Pradesh and the desert islands of the Andaman and Lakshadweep to name a few. Being one of the oldest civilizations on earth dating back to 5000 BC gives her an immense historical wealth. It is a country where, in places, time has stood still for centuries and in others it has been catapulted into the 21st century.

Bespoke Itineraries

Craving Memorable Experiences Of India?


Most first-time travellers to India choose to explore The Golden Triangle, Tiger Country or God’s Own Country: Kerala. Itineraries which include the Taj Mahal and take in India’s iconic monuments. We offer these itineraries but with a twist. By taking into account other reasons that you may have for visiting India, we tailor the programme so that you get the best of both worlds. Whether your personal interests are cuisine, walking tours, photography, village encounters, cycle rides, jeep safaris or hot air ballooning, we can incorporate these into your travel plans. We have devised ‘alternative sightseeing’ experiences which we believe showcase the destinations as they are, and not just by the monuments they house.

Jane, Scotland

This has been an absolutely wonderful trip, especially as it was not something I would ever be able to do. India has completely exceeded all my expectations and it has been such a privilege to have been so generously and wonderfully hosted. The most magical moment was when a mother tigress walked towards us in Rathambore National Park when we realised she had three “teenage” cats along with her.

The waving children, the sleeping dogs , the incense burning, the decorates Tata Trucks, a glimpse of tigers, chattering squirrels, peacocks, camels and cows.
