Travel to India, a vast and splendid land of divergent cultures and cuisines – or, as Paul William Roberts would say, to the “empire of the soul.” We’ll steer you through a spectacular labyrinth of sights and mysteries to bring out the wonders of this sub-continent: battlements of Rajasthan's opulent palaces, the Taj Mahal and Varanasi on the Ganges River in the north; wild jungles and tiger habitats of central India; and tropical Malabar backwaters and plantations of the Spice Hills in the south. You’ll be enveloped by the warmth and hospitality of India’s people: in the old city of Jodphur where you’re invited to the private home of the Sankahla family for lunch; in Bandhavharh and Kanha National parks when the local guides and conservationist detail passionately their struggle to bring tigers back from the brink of extinction; and in the rural villages of Rajasthan when we dine with royal family descendants who tell us about daily Indian life.
As you travel through India by private car, alongside elephants, in a rickshaw and on foot, you’ll stay in luxurious Maharaja's palaces, historic havellis that were once residences of the elite, luxury tented camps in the desert, home stays on spice plantations, houseboats and many other boutique accommodations. Our India tours are perfect for independent travelers, families, and veteran adventurers. Join one of our pre-designed adventures, or ask us to design a private India tour just for you.
