Good to Go

You can holiday to India without having to quarantine either on your arrival in the country or on your return to the UK. There are also no travel advisories in place against travel from the FCDO meaning you can book with complete peace of mind.

India holidays immerse you in a depth of experience like no other, with the diversity, cultural riches and variety of landscapes of an entire continent!

Between the towering Himalayas and Kerala’s beach fringed tip, there’s millennias worth of history to discover on a holiday in India. Civilisations rose in the Indus valley over 5,000 years ago and the great empires that have risen and fallen in that time have left impressive reminders of their wake. Vast hilltop forts, opulent places and temples as old as time itself greet you at almost every turn and whether you are gazing in awe at the Taj Mahal or bathing with the faithful on the ghats of Varanasi you’ll feel the shadow of history with you at every moment.

Where to Go?

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.

A Treat for the Tastebuds

India is a kaleidoscope of cultures and the food perfectly reflects this. Each region boasts its own delicious speciality so prepare to take your tastebuds on a deeply satisfying tour. Northern India is the home of the classic curry, chilly nights in the Himalayas can be warmed with momos, a variation on the traditional dim sum eaten with a fiery red chutney, whilst Punjab is famous for its cooling Lassis, a yoghurt-based drink, featuring spices and fruit. Whether you are sampling incredible street food in Mumbai, the freshest of grilled fish in Kerala or mouth-watering dosa in Tamil Nadu your stomach will thank you for taking it on a holiday to India.

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

  • 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).

    Did you find this helpful?

  • 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.

    Did you find this helpful?

  • 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.
