What to know before you go

POPULATION

India is now the most populous country in the world with 1.4 billion people—making it the world’s largest democracy.

CAPITAL

New Delhi. Established in 1912 when the British moved India’s capital city from Kolkata to Delhi, the building of New Delhi was completed in 1931, leaving the old city to be known as Old Delhi.

CULTURAL QUICK TAKE

While the majority of Indians practice Hinduism, many are also Muslim, Sikh, Jain, or Christian—and you’ll get to visit their respective sanctuaries on tour.

WHAT TO GO FOR

Marvels like the Taj Mahal and Red Fort, sacred rituals along the Ganges, the swirl of spices in teeming markets, and maybe, just maybe, a sighting of the elusive Bengal tiger.

UNIQUE EXPERIENCES ON TOUR

Let Kerala’s gentle backwaters lull you to sleep on a traditional houseboat, soar above the rose palaces of Rajasthan in a hot-air balloon, and twirl your way through a Bollywood dance class.

Snow-capped mountains to sun-kissed beaches, this is infinite India

We all need a little India for both perspective and pure joy. Explore intricately carved temples that weave myths into their very walls alongside primeval jungles bursting with wildlife—then nourish your soul with the creamy richness of butter chicken or the fiery kick of vindaloo.

CULTURAL COLLAGE

India’s Royal
Rajasthan

Fall under the spell of Udaipur’s
lakes, the divine symmetry of
the Ranakpur Temple, and the
fragrance of a home-cooked
meal in Jaipur on a tour that’s
fit for royalty.

What travelers say about our India tours

Enlightening trip
3/7/24 by 2nd-time traveler Angela
My husband and I took this trip as a retirement present to ourselves. Our tour guide Jasvir was excellent. In the chaos of India’s daily lifestyle our tour guide was cool as a cucumber. Jasvir is well educated in India’s rich history, he’s well prepared, organized, and relatable...Our tour bus made its way through the hectic streets of India without a glitch. If you take this tour request Jasvir, he’s the best!

India has a lot to do
2/15/24 by 3rd-time traveler June
Just got back from India! What an experience. It’s a very busy, fast paced tour, yet you have time to explore everything. Our tour guide extraordinaire taught us right away that there is no personal space in India and to cross the street like you’re walking in a garden. It’s the adventure you didn’t know you needed- go!
India: Delhi, Agra & Jaipur
Amazing Tour and Tour Guide!
2/15/24 by 2nd-time traveler Mike
This trip was a bit of a dream for me. I signed up for the base trip (India: Delhi, Agra & Jaipur) and then the extension to Cochin and Mumbai. The best part of the tour was the guide. Jas was quite informative. Always delivering more than you might expect. He was quite entertaining as well, providing "value added" commentary and activities for the entire duration of the tour. The most surprising part of the tour was the traffic and the noise.
India: Delhi, Agra & Jaipur
Experience of a Lifetime
11/2/23 by 1st-time traveler Vernon
This tour met all my expectations though an extra day in Delhi and Jaipur would have made it even stronger. The hotels were all very good and glad that i did not do the second safari in Ranthambore to enjoy the quiet of the hotel. The farewell dinner was wonderful especially in meeting the family and hearing their story and experiencing the cooking demonstration...
India: Delhi, Agra & Jaipur
Interesting India!
3/9/23 by 2nd-time traveler Karen
While India was never on my bucket list, I am so happy to have had this experience. India is very different. The culture, the religions, the clothing, traditions and especially the traffic! We had a terrific tour guide, Rajeev, who taught us so much. He was patient with the group and a pleasure to be with. We had meals in locals homes, visited a school and saw the massive laundry (hand washed, dried and ironed) in Mumbai. It was an all around immersive experience...if you are open to learning new cultures and want something different, this is a great tour.

Magestic India
1/20/23 by 2nd-time traveler Nicolas
This was a wonderful tour that completely changed my perception of India. From meeting locals from small villages, to visiting grand temples, to seeing Bengal tigers, this tour exposes you to the raw, authentic India while keeping you comfortable. Raj was a phenomenal tour director that looked after us every step of the way and gave us incredible knowledge on the incredibly history and culture of India.
