India Tailor-Made Holidays

Travel to India carries a feeling of the exotic, no matter how many times you visit. With more than one billion people of diverse ethnic groups who create an intoxicating cultural cocktail, there is plenty to discover on our luxury India holidays.

The landscape is varied, too, with snow-capped mountains in the Himalayas and sun-kissed beaches in Goa, tranquil temples and dusty villages. Come face to face with the colourful birds, regal tigers, and lush plants that make up this country when you explore its national parks

From grand vestiges of the Raj in New Delhi to the rich cultural heritage of the former maharajas in royal Rajasthan, India bustles, hustles and delights. There is a wealth of palaces and historic luxury hotels to explore,as well as the storied cities and tea plantations in the east.

The Golden Triangle is India's beloved travellers' route and a perfect introduction to the country from Delhi to Agra and the Taj Mahal, while India's south abounds with beautiful landscapes, colonial architecture, lush jungles, ruined forts, centuries-old churches and lavish basilica. For the spiritual seeker, Tamil Nadu is India's temple heartland, while Varanasi is one of the oldest cities in the world and certainly India's holiest.
