Book your 2020/2021 holiday to India with Wendy Wu Tours
With the diversity, cultural riches and variety of landscapes of an entire continent, a holiday to India is one incredible experience!
Between the towering Himalayas and Kerala’s beach fringed tip, there’s millennia’s worth of history to discover, think Taj Mahal and Varanasi, and friendly locals of all creeds and cultures to meet.
The north of the country is the India of many people’s dreams, a colourful kaleidoscope of temples, palaces, spectacular scenery and wonderful wildlife. Search for tigers in Ranthambore National Park, be starstruck by the romance of the Taj Mahal or explore the fascinating remnants of past empires from the Moghuls to the British Raj.
For a more relaxed pace turn your eyes to the sultry south. Cruise on the tranquil backwaters of Kerala, breathe in the fresh cool air of the hill stations of the Western Ghats, explore little visited national parks and relax on golden beaches.
So, sip on chai, devour plenty of curries and submerge yourself in the sense assaulting, life-affirming land that is India!
India offers a wealth of wonderful sights and experiences. What better way to explore them than on a Wendy Wu tour?

I love to share my passion for my country and culture with visitors and try to make sure that each guest is fully immersed in India’s cultural richness. I love the Taj Mahal and the story behind it, and also wandering down the lanes of Varanasi’s ghats – it is here that you find the true India.
Mr Jain was so knowledgeable, we learnt so much from him about India’s history, and felt much more in touch with the culture because of it.Mr and Mrs Jones
The diversity of India is the reason I love my job. Each part is full of different history, culture, customs and religions. I particularly love the incredible history of Rajasthan and my own city, Jaipur – my favourite monument is the Amber Fort, and I hope my guests are as impressed with it as I am.
We were guided through Rajasthan expertly by Jasvir, who looked after us wonderfully. He was so animated, especially about Jaipur, his home city and filled us with fascinating information!Mr Richard
Southern India is a land of beautiful temples and wonderful nature, it is my favourite part of India. I enjoy sharing its wonders with my groups – be it trekking or boating in a forest reserve, visiting spice gardens, Ayurvedic massage or simply shopping for spices in a bustling market. There is no better place to explore in India, and no better person to show you!
Exploring Kerala with Vishal was a magical experience. His passion for the area was infectious and we loved every minute of our time there.Paul and Sara
I love to share the history of Rajasthan with my guests. I feel nothing but excitement while explaining the history and culture of my country because India is the only country with such a diverse number of customs, cultures and religions.
Raj was calm, collected and coordinated – the tour ran like clockwork. We really enjoyed Raj’s commentary and felt so well looked afterMs Briggs
Awards are all well and good, but it's our customer feedback that means the most to us. We're proud that so many of our customers would be happy to recommend us to their friends and family - that's all the accolade we need.
Wonderful blend of historical, geographical and social information from an excellent, knowledgable guide. The experience of sights, sounds and aromas will stay with us for a long time. The whole experience, however, surpassed our expectations! Incredible India!Linda
PaulThoroughly enjoyable and interesting tour, which was a memorable experience. Our guide, Bhawani, was top quality, superbly well organised, informative and authoritative. All considered, extremely worthwhile and brilliantly organised. Thank you, Wendy Wu Tours.
Amazing seamless trip on the Golden Triangle tour in India. The hotels were fabulous, food delicious and our tour guide AJay went above and beyond to ensure all guests on our tour were well looked after and catered for. All was perfect and I'd recommend it without question.June
The best time to visit India is from October to March. Each season offers a different climate depending on where in India you are visiting. During May to September, the weather can be quite hot and humid as well as in monsoon season which is June to September. During the winter months of November to January, the temperatures can drop and the weather can become cooler. Read more about when to visit India
The food offered on all of our India tours is locally sourced cuisine so that you can get a real taste for authentic ingredients and recipes, especially spices! Local delicacies from markets can also be tried as well as street food from places like Delhi. On request, western food is easily available. India is the ultimate foodie country and each city offers its own significant dish and a different range of flavours, textures and ingredients. Vegan and vegetarian dishes are in abundance with a huge choice for other dietary requirements as well.
India is now an extremely diverse place and most types of clothing are not restricted, however, women are expected to cover up when visiting places of religious significance like temples. Items such as knee length skirts and shorts are suitable for women (and shorts for men) and these types of clothes are widely accepted. It is always recommended to carry a light cardigan/shawl/pashmina when travelling as well as shoes that are easy to take on and off such as flip flops to be prepared to enter a religious building (some sites will require you to enter bare foot).
The local currency is Rupees which is a closed currency. It is best to either take Sterling in cash to change once you arrive in India, or to withdraw money from an ATM once you arrive in India (charges may apply). Smaller denominations are recommended for taxis, rickshaws, tipping and comfort breaks etc.
This is highly dependent on where you are travelling to, but distances could vary from 2 – 4 hours. Traffic is extremely busy in a lot of areas of India but on our tours we will always try to travel outside peak times.
