One of the world’s most diverse and fascinating destinations, great travel to India deserves time and care with a wealth of destinations to choose for your tailor-made holiday to India.

Why travel to India

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.
The choice of destinations in India is awe-inspiring and entices visitors back again and again. Whatever type of luxury adventure trip you want to have in India, our Destination Experts can design something totally extraordinary, which exceeds all expectations.
