Heart Of India

For the committed Indiaphile Central India has it all. Often overlooked in favour of the more tourist-friendly regions to the north and south, the centre of the country offers a magical mix of experiences well off the beaten track.

Starting in Mumbai we take the train to Aurangabad and visit the famous Buddhist caves of Ellora and Ajanta before heading south to the jewel of India’s southern crown, Hyderabad. From here we travel to the 15th-17th century sites of Bijapur, Badami and Pattadakal, before heading south to Hampi - the gem of Karnataka’s ruined cities. And after all that – a journey that will have shown a plethora of UNESCO World Heritage Sites - we enjoy our final two nights on the coast in Goa.
The accommodation is memorable, the cuisine is delicious, and the route will have you feeling like real travellers.

Highlights:

  • Mumbai’s historical architecture, the Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat and the Dharavi slum
  • Hyderabad, the fabulous ‘City of Pearls’, with drinks at the Taj Falaknuma Palace
  • The Buddhist caves at Ajanta and Ellora
  • Exploring the stunning ruins of Hampi
  • Relax on the beaches around Goa

If visiting Hampi, take your swimming gear. A swim in the river at sunset is fantastic.
