India

A huge and diverse country, India casts a spell over everyone who visits and you cannot fail to be inspired, charmed, bemused and occasionally shocked by the rich cultures, colours, smells and sounds of this diverse nation.

Our India travel specialists have cruised along the sleepy backwaters of the south, encountered tigers in the game-rich wildlife parks in central India, met princes at palaces in the deserts of Rajasthan. They have sailed along the Ganges to the holy city of Varanasi, explored tea plantations in the  Himalayan foothills around Darjeeling and trekked through the stunning landscape of Ladakh in the very north. Few destinations offer the sensory assault that India does and it leaves a lasting impression long after your return.
