India

India is an extraordinary country with diverse terrain, culture, history, and religions. It stretches from the northern Himalayan peaks to the southern backwaters of Kerala, and has a history reaching back five millennia. Drawing influences from the Mughal Empire, and more recently the British Empire, India is a fascinating multicultural mixing pot just ready to be explored.

Highlights

India is one of the most vibrant, culturally rich, and colourful countries in the world, and with unique music, food, flora, and fauna, it's a place full of surprises. One of few countries where you can find yourself able to visit rain forests, deserts, beaches, mountains, and bustling cities all within a single holiday, each state is also home to its own language, cuisine, and musical tradition.

Let our handpicked local guides take you through this enchanting land of myth and legend. Learn how the kings of the Mughal Empire once live in their extravagant forts and palaces, and find out how the country was shaped through the centuries by colonial rule, before being returned to the Indian people in part through the actions of Mahatma Gandhi and his Peace Movement.
