ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST DIVERSE AND FASCINATING DESTINATIONS, GREAT TRAVEL TO INDIA DESERVES TIME AND CARE
The choice of destinations in India is awe-inspiring and entices visitors back again and again. With our luxury holidays in India you will experience everything from the magnificent architecture and palaces of Rajasthan to the sleepy backwaters of the south, game parks, mountain ranges and palm-fringed beaches ensure that India remains a favourite destination for even the most seasoned travellers.
For the first-time visitor we suggest you arrive in Delhi and from there travel to the surrounding regions, but make sure that you take the time to discover this fabulous city – too often it is overlooked and some of its treasures and history are left unexplored. From Delhi your choices are endless. The mystical Himalayas are only a short flight away and the majestic forts of Rajasthan within reach. The central and southern regions offer the chance to get truly off the grid. Explore the painted temples of Tamil Nadu and the jungle-clad hill country of Karnataka or alternatively discover the little-known coastal state of Orissa and the tribal areas of Chattisgarh.
Whatever type of adventure you want to have in India, our Destination Experts can design something totally extraordinary, which exceeds all expectations.

Every year new domestic flights mean travelling around India has never been easier. With that said, our tailor-made holidays in India tend to eschew the temptation to race from one city to the next, instead taking things at a slower pace and focusing on little-known jewels that allow you to really understand this thrilling country.

Getting it Right Every Time
Creating an itinerary
We work in some of the most ecologically and culturally sensitive parts of the world, so have always been conscious of operating in a way that has a positive impact on both the environment and the people.
When you travel with us, we will make a contribution on your behalf to one of the following charities: All About the Light Foundation in Africa, ABOUTAsia Travel & Schools in Cambodia, the Alalay Foundation in Bolivia and Scott Polar Research Institute in the Polar Regions.
If clients are interested, we are always keen to get them involved in local projects and conservation efforts. Whether it be whale counting in Antarctica or rhino relocation in Kenya, you will leave knowing your actions have made a difference.
Our service includes booking and managing all your international and domestic flights. However, you can also book your own international flights if you would prefer. We can also organise private charters and private jet travel for both international and domestic flights.
We have a fantastic VIP service in place to help you navigate the airport and make your journey as smooth and easy as possible. We can collect you from your home, take you to the airport and escort you through check-in and immigration to avoid any queues, straight through to the airport lounge before boarding your flight. The same service can be put in place on your return journey.
We understand that one of the most important factors to our clients is flexibility to give you as much assurance as possible when booking your next trip. We are extremely flexible and are on hand to discuss with you the latest updates on flexibility in any one of our destinations.
We have excellent relationships with a handful of insurance companies who provide various forms of cover. Each one offers a different policy with varying terms and conditions, so we strongly recommend getting a series of quotes and discussing your personal requirements in detail with them in order to find the best one for you.
Booking and travelling with an accredited tour operator is more important than ever. cazenove+loyd is a bonded tour operator and is ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Our ATOL number is 3208. This means that the UK government guarantees all funds paid out to a bonded operator and is bound to pay in full if the bond holder is unable to deliver as contracted. This gives our clients peace of mind and full financial protection. Please see our booking conditions for further information.
We have put the relevant measures in place so that our destinations are ready to welcome you safely. In all of our destinations, sanitation and hygiene in our vehicles and the properties we work with are extensive, with cleaning protocols rigidly followed as well as other necessary safety requirements. We always arrange private vehicles and guides for our clients when travelling in a destination.
The price of our service is dependent on the intricacies of the itinerary. No two trips are the same. Our philosophy is to make every detail tailored just to you.
