India Holidays 2019/20 

Snowcapped Himalayan mountains stand erect and paradoxically to the golden heat of central India. The great expanse of India and the mixing pot of cultures, religions and traditions means that no two places are the same. Discovering the opposing architecture, the rich and diverse wildlife and the awe-inspiring temples. When people think of India they conjure up images of the colourful religions and festivals, the blend of economic growth intermixed with poverty; and deserts dotted with historic forts and royal palaces. There is also the wildlife such as the Asian Elephant and Bengal Tiger found in the numerous National Parks and wildlife sanctuaries. That most famous memorial to Love, of course, the Taj Mahal. But the most enduring image that you will take away with you from a visit to India is of the people. Within its population of more than one billion, there are over 400 different tribal communities speaking more than 750 different dialects. From the Tamils of the south to the Tibetan people of Ladakh, this mix of people has come about over thousands of years of invasion, migration and trade. The majority of Indian people are Hindus but there are also many other religious communities such as Islam, Christianity, Sikhism, Buddhism, Jainism and Judaism.

The escorted India Tours take you the length and breadth of India, experiencing all that it has to offer whilst guided by knowledgeable, capable, guides.
Visit the Jaipur elephants and great classics such as the Taj Mahal and the Amber Palace.
