We are delighted to introduce our new India,Nepal, Bhutan & Sri Lanka brochure featuring all corners of the Sub-Continent – the landscapes and hill stations of the North, the Himalayas including Nepal and Bhutan, the splendours of the South including Sri Lanka, the mystical rivers of the East and the scenic splendour of the West – not forgetting the religious heartlands and wildlife of central India.
The Indian Sub-Continent continues to fascinate, surprise and delight, and within this latest brochure we have sought not only to ‘amaze and surprise’ the first-time visitor but also to enthral those returning.
New features include No or Low Single Supplements; for 2019 we have reduced the single supplements on many of our tours by up to 50% – as well as adding new No Single Supplement departures on The Taj Tour featuring India's prestigious 'Taj' hotels, Kerala Naturally including overnight on a houseboat and a homestay with a local family surrounded by plantations, and our exceptionally good value Highlights of Northern India now with an improved itinerary for 2019.
We have upgraded from Canter to Jeep safari’s in Ranthambore National Park; improving the overall safari experience and the likelihood of good tiger sightings. You can experience Jeep safaris in Ranthambore National Park on Grand Tour of India, Rajasthan Royals, The Tale of the Tiger, Images of India, Return to India and Grand Tour of Northern India.
Our group sizes have been reduced to mainly 18 or 22 maximum, which is significantly lower than most other group tour operators meaning you can enjoy a more intimate and sociable atmosphere, and delve into your destination in more detail – get closer to the places visited and experience local life in a more personal and informal setting.
India’s weather is extremely varied and the best time to travel depends greatly on the destinations to be visited; you’ll find detailed weather information on page 8.
We continually monitor our clients’ comments via questionnaires, letters and local feedback, and always strive to enhance and improve our tours, which have been developed over the years to offer the best combination of sightseeing, experiences, hotels and guides; on each tour page, you’ll see a sample from each guest; page 7 details our top 10 tours and guides, and page 64 shows our top rated tours for accommodation, as voted by our customers.
We also include the option to enjoy a more personal experience with family or friends, visiting all the programmed sights, but with your own private vehicle and driver/guide. We can arrange this either on the published brochure dates or on alternative dates.
Historic and character accommodations are used wherever appropriate and where budgets and locations allow, and a number of especially good value extension opportunities are also offered. Together with the Special Events, we believe that you need look no further for the perfect India experience.
