• Easily accessible from Delhi are Agra and the Taj Mahal, and to the southwest is Rajasthan, the state of Udaipur and Jaipur.

Kashmir, about 500km from Delhi, and at the northern tip of India, is famous for its mountains, rivers and beautiful scenery. Visitors can stay on house boats on Lake Dal.

The River Ganges: an overnight train trip from Delhi, and the best place to be based, is the Hindu holy city of Varanasi (Benares in colonial times). Running along the bank of the river are the "ghats", where all aspects of life, and religion are played out.

• About 1500 km to the southeast of Delhi is Kolkata (formerly Calcutta), the capital of West Bengal. Kolkata is well-known for its colonial history and buildings, but is now a major business centre and the second biggest city in India (after Mumbai).

To the south of West Bengal is the state of Orissa, famous for its temples. Must-see places include Bhubaneswar for the Lingaraj Temple and the holy city of Puri, a destination for Hindu pilgrims.


Mumbai, (formerly Bombay) is, of course, famous for its Bollywood film-industry. However, it is also the country’s main commercial and business centre. As with all Indian cities, the streets are hectic, but the street-life rubs alongside modern industry and skyscrapers.


• To the south of Mumbai is Goa, India’s best-known destination for relaxation, beaches and holiday resorts.


Wildlife: there are around a hundred national parks, a number of biosphere reserves and hundreds of wildlife sanctuaries. The Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan is probably the most popular destination for tourists seeking a glimpse of Indian Tigers and Elephants. Other well-known national parks include Corbett Tiger Reserve in Uttarakhand and Kanha National Park in Madhya Pradesh.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What we do

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Efficient and economical organisation of individual travel itineraries.

These can include any one of, or any combination of, flights, hotels, transfers, visas, trains, guides, event tickets etc

Click on the tabs on the left for information about India.

We endeavour to arrange any hotel and any other services required, but as it’s not possible for one website to list full information about every single possibility, we thought it better not to try. Instead we aim to provide a lot of links to different information sources.

For complicated itineraries, we are usually able to put a no-obligation hold on certain elements, while waiting for others to be confirmed.

We don’t charge glossy brochure prices and will try to beat any quote.

Please call us if you would like advice from a native, or from someone who has been there recently.
