What to do in India

Culture: If there's one thing you won't need to search for in India, it's culture – you'll find it wherever you go. It's the home of Mahatma Gandhi, the birthplace of four major religions, a hotbed of innovation and a melting pot of ethnicities. If you can't decide where to start, take a tour of the most visited cities of Agra, Jaipur and Delhi with a Golden Triangle tour. [Link to: High quality tours and flexible extensions].

History: Attempt to unravel the enigma of India by working your way through its astounding historical sites. From the magical allure of the Taj Mahal and the awe-inspiring Buddhist, Hindu and Christian monasteries scattered around the country, to the lavish vestiges of the British Raj. Book one of our historical tours and let our expert guides take care of all the arrangements for you. [Link to: High quality tours and flexible extensions].

Beaches: Goa is the place to go in India for picture-postcard beaches, with some of our favourites including the lively stretches at Calangute, Baga and Anjuna, and the secluded sands further south. Kerala also boasts some gorgeous golden stretches, such as Kovalam beach and Varkala beach.

Nature and wildlife: With 89 National Parks, and native species including tigers, snow leopards and black panthers, India is bursting with natural splendours. We recommend starting with Kerala's rich forests and brackish lagoons and lakes, or visiting Ranthambore Park in the north, to be in with a chance of spotting a Bengal Tiger.

Unforgettable tours: India is so rich in history, culture and natural attractions that it might seem overwhelming at first. From the Taj Mahal in Agra, to pulsating Mumbai and historic Delhi, the best way to take it all in is with an exciting tour that gives you plenty of flexibility to choose the sights you want to see most. One of our most popular tour combinations includes the Golden Triangle region and Ranthambore National Park. [Link to: high quality tours and flexible extensions].
