Which India tour is right for you?

India is a vast and varied country with much to experience, which is why many travellers keep returning time and time again. From the frenetic cities of Delhi and Kolkata to the rural idyll of village India, the beaches of Goa to the mountains of Kashmir, tribal communities, religious ceremonies and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, there’s something to appeal whatever you interests. However, with so much to see and do, it can be difficult to decide which area to focus on and which sights to visit. To help you choose the perfect India tour, we’ve put together a guide to some of our most popular trips.

With great publicity guaranteed, I thought I’d better go and see for myself what all the fuss was about… a tough job as they say, but someone has to do it.

With the increasing numbers of tourists visiting Rajasthan, it’s refreshing to explore a town that has remained largely off the tourist trail. Bundi is one of the oldest towns in the Land of Kings. Founded in the early part of the 15th century as a stronghold against marauding Maratha warriors from what is now Madhya Pradesh, it is a town steeped in history.
