Eye-opening  India holidays & tours

Whether you’re marvelling at the marble-clad Taj Mahal, watching dawn break over the sacred waters of the Ganges, riding the railway with locals or floating on the palm-edged backwaters of Kerala, India is a country that leaves its mark on all those who visit.

It can be crowded, chaotic and bewildering at times – but that’s all part of the experience. There’s colour everywhere, from the jewel-like fabrics piled high at markets to the orange flash of a Bengal tiger hiding in the undergrowth. In the cities, the soundtrack is beeping horns and shouting shopkeepers; among desert dunes and rural reserves you could hear a pin drop.

And, of course, there’s the cuisine. Creamy curries, butter-brushed naan and warming cups of chai are common in the north, while in the south you can expect delicious fresh fish, coconut-laced stews and comforting lentil dahls.

Our India tours can take you across the country, lifting the curtain on this captivating country’s history, culture and traditions. From the Golden Triangle to the sultry south, allow us to introduce you to the magic of India.

What our experts love about India

India is high on many travellers' must-see lists - and it’s easy to see why. It's one of those rare wonders that offers something for everyone, whether it’s a sense of the exotic, spiritual wonder, food or culture. What’s more, our India holidays offer luxury and impeccable service at affordable value.

What are the best places to visit in India?

Stretching from the towering peaks of the Himalayas to the tropical shores of Kerala, and measuring up at more than a million square miles, there’s a lot to consider when you’re thinking about where to go in India. Below, you’ll find some of our favourite areas, from the ever-popular Golden Triangle to the rural reserves of Central India.

More information about India

We've been designing escorted tours for more than 40 years, and plan each itinerary - whether it's our signature Golden Triangle holiday or our classic tour of Kerala - with care and attention. 

All of our Indian holidays include our award-winning VIP door-to-door travel service from anywhere on the UK mainland, and carefully chosen accommodation at every step of your journey. While you're away, dedicated tour managers work to ensure your trip is never less than memorable - all you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy one of the world's most incredible countries.

Flight time from London to Delhi is around 8 hours and 30 minutes. To Mumbai, it's around 9 hours and 30 minutes.

There are a lot of different languages spoken in India – hundreds, in fact. Most widely spoken is Hindi, the world’s oldest language. It’s also one of India’s two ‘official’ languages, the second being English. Other widely spoken languages include Bengali, Punjabi, Marathi and Gujarati.


Our India tour packages often include local guides, who’ll know the language or dialect of the area and be able to help with any translation that’s needed along the way. In most tourist areas, you’ll be able to get by with English. A 'hello', 'please' or 'thank you' in the local language will always be appreciated - your guide can help you learn a few handy words or phrases if you like. 

Currently, UK citizens require a visa to visit India. For the most up-to-date information on visas for India tours, please use the quick-check tool on our visa requirements page.

The currency in India is the rupee. Take a small amount of Sterling or US$ to exchange on arrival in India, as currency exchanges in the UK won’t carry rupees. ATMs are easily found in the larger cities, and credit and debit cards are widely accepted in tourist areas. 

India’s size and variety of landscapes mean that the climate here can differ vastly between (and even within) regions. The far north and Himalayan foothills are cold in winter but lovely and cool during summer, when the rest of the country swelters. Northern regions such as Rajasthan have pleasant winter temperatures (with chilly nights and the odd cold snap), hot, dry weather in spring and autumn, and very wet summers. As you head south, the climate becomes more tropical - hot all year round, with high humidity and lots of rain during the summer monsoon season. We try to time our India tours for the most comfortable times of year, so you won't be too hot or wet.

We’d recommend sticking with bottled water on our India holidays. Avoid ice in drinks, and be vigilant when it comes to eating out – if it may have been washed in tap water (salad, unpeeled fruit and veg), then it’s best to avoid it. 

You will need an adaptor for any electrical items - a Type C, D or M adaptor may be required with two or three (different sized) round pins in a triangle shape.
