With the diversity, cultural riches and variety of landscapes of an entire continent, a holiday to India is one incredible experience!

So, sip on chai, devour plenty of curries and submerge yourself in the sense assaulting, life-affirming land that is India!

This November, we are also offering the wonderfully unique opportunity to experience the most colourful and exciting part of Indian culture – an Indian wedding celebration. Plus, experience all the beautiful sights and stunning Samode Bagh (Palace) as featured in ITV’s new drama, Beecham House.

FAQs about India

  • When is the best time to travel to India?

    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.

  • What food should I expect in 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.

  • What should I wear when visiting India sites?

    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).

  • What currency should I take?

    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.

  • What are the driving distances between the cities and the standard of the modes of transport?

    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.
