About India

Like a yarn that unravels metre after metre, India unveils itself piece by little piece to those who are willing to stick around for a bit. Unwind the rough and the crazy and then create your own unique spool of delights. Intimidating at first glance, its intimidation is but merely a show – a filter so that it might welcome only those who choose to reach beyond the surface and plumb its depths. A desert bordering the most fertile plains in the west, tropical beaches in the south pushing inland to mist covered mountains, cattle sharing lanes with fast cars, more than 1000 languages spoken yet everything communicated with a nod of the head. Knives and fork swapped for the good old fingers at a family dinner, and Beethoven played to the strains of a sitar - India indeed is a land of paradoxes. Depth leaches out from every city and village, tracing their traditions back to eons but despite its heavy and brocaded past, it is, again paradoxically, a young nation too, one that wears the contemporary attire with surprising élan and confidence to take its place amongst one of the most intriguing nations of the world. Our tours for people in their 30's and 40's offer not just the sites but also insights into this mad, complex but ultimately dazzling land that is India!

Holi and Diwali Festivals

Some departures will leave in India during the Holi and Diwali festivals-the trips leaving during the Festivals have been listed in the dates. They are great festivals to witness and some very minor itinerary alterations may be made locally in order to make the most of these occasions. Holi celebrations typically involve people throwing coloured water at each other and smearing powder on each other's faces. This is accompanied by dancing, music and traditional Holi sweets such as Ghujiya and Bhanng. It's a riot of colours as the powder bursts into the sky. During Diwali, the festival of lights, people typically light up their houses, shops and streets, and celebrate on the streets with fireworks.







Hot Air Balloon Over Jaipur

Stay suspended over the Jaipur air and skim through clouds as familiar landmarks of the city appear so much different from a vantage point like no other.

Bollywood dance class

It's not just about screwing the light bulb and patting the dog! It really is an art form! And it doesn’t matter if you’ve got two left feet, sign up for a dance class and have a blast anyway.

Camel Safari

Watch the sand shift underfoot and turn colour as you advance further into the dunes on board your camels. Wait for the sun to sink low and lend an even greater shade of gold to the desert until it's time to head back to reality.

Sun Rise Taj Mahal

Visit the Taj Mahal at dawn to see the light tease many moods out of it – at once cold, brooding, opaque, blushing, and then resplendent in the full light of day. There are few things in this world that is sacrosanct; this is just one of them.
