India is like nowhere else on earth. It is the ultimate eclectic mix of sights, sounds, spirituality, and smells. Every expectation – be it of beauty, mysticism, poverty, or bureaucracy – will be outdone by what hits you when you arrive, and one visit will not be enough. The welcome you receive, wherever you go, will be warm and friendly and nothing will be too much trouble at any stage of your journey.

India’s landscape is as diverse as its people and ranges from tropical beach paradises to primary forests of teak: to desert tundra’s broken by forts ruled by princes: and to chilly foothills clad in tea plantations opening onto vistas of the world’s highest mountain peaks.

The experiences you may encounter will be just as diverse, from being slowed down by herds of water buffalo crossing the road; hearing the perpetual blowing of car horns 24/7; avoiding monkey’s as they try to steal food from your rucksack; playing cricket with the locals in the heat of the day; to counting how many people are hanging on the outside of your train as it leaves the station!

India is embracing modernity with open arms and is the foundations for its recent economic boom but religion still remains the backbone of Indian society and it continues to provide a source of both social harmony and sporadic tension. Tourism Today is booming in India, not just with western visitors, but domestic tourism is thriving as middle class Indian’s discover a new found wealth as their economy continues to prosper.

  • What food should I expect in India?

    The food offered on all of our India tours is locally sourced cuisine so that you can get a real taste for authentic ingredients and recipes, especially spices! Local delicacies from markets can also be tried as well as street food from places like Delhi. On request, western food is easily available. India is the ultimate foodie country and each city offers its own significant dish and a different range of flavours, textures and ingredients. Vegan and vegetarian dishes are in abundance with a huge choice for other dietary requirements as well.

  • What should I wear when visiting India sites?

    India is now an extremely diverse place and most types of clothing are not restricted, however, women are expected to cover up when visiting places of religious significance like temples. Items such as knee length skirts and shorts are suitable for women (and shorts for men) and these types of clothes are widely accepted. It is always recommended to carry a light cardigan/shawl/pashmina when travelling as well as shoes that are easy to take on and off such as flip flops to be prepared to enter a religious building (some sites will require you to enter bare foot).

    Did you find this helpful?

  • What currency should I take?

    The local currency is Rupees which is a closed currency. It is best to either take Sterling in cash to change once you arrive in India, or to withdraw money from an ATM once you arrive in India (charges may apply). Smaller denominations are recommended for taxis, rickshaws, tipping and comfort breaks etc.

    Did you find this helpful?

  • What are the driving distances between the cities and the standard of the modes of transport?

    This is highly dependent on where you are travelling to, but distances could vary from 2 – 4 hours. Traffic is extremely busy in a lot of areas of India but on our tours we will always try to travel outside peak times.
