India has always been on the dedicated tourists trail but over the last few decades, as travel has been made easier and more efficient, escorted tours to India are becoming more and more popular. In terms of size, it’s the seventh largest country on the planet and in terms of population it is second only to China.
With the Himalayas in the north and the Indian Ocean in the south and pockets of rainforest too, India delivers some majestic scenery that is as beautiful as it is diverse. Those who love to sample the culture and atmosphere of city life will be thrilled with the sights and sounds of places such as the capital New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Jaipur. The famous Taj Mahal (one of the new 7 wonders of the world) in Agra is also a sight not to be missed.
So, whether it’s city breaks, mountain trekking, safaris or a tropical beach paradise, holidays to India really do cover all the bases! What follows is just a small sample of places and things you may wish to explore.
Goa – If you love the beach and warm waters, then Goa might be the location in India that will suit you the most. Goa is popular with tourists from all around the world and offers a unique take on the exotic holiday. There are plenty of resorts that cater for all kinds of holidaymakers and will help you to relax and unwind in delightful surroundings.
Kerala Escorted Tours – Kerala is a region in the south west of the country and is often associated with luxury holidays to India thanks to its many beautiful beaches and this is indeed a great place for a relaxing retreat away from the hustle and bustle and a chance to enjoy the water of the Indian Ocean. Kerala is also well known for its backwaters (a series of connected lakes and lagoons) which are a huge attraction to tourists with the area being a haven for all sorts of wildlife, making the area even more appealing.
Maharaja Express – If you find the thought of Indian train journeys appealing, then the Maharaja Express is likely to take your breath away. This really is luxury travel and there are various itineraries that you can choose from, depending on which of India’s highlights you want to see the most. Overnight journeys are made more comfortable thanks to en suite bathrooms. With a selection of dining options, this train journey is a terrific way to sample many of the flavours of the subcontinent.
Safari India – There is a wealth of wildlife to see in the country and many India escorted tours allow time to incorporate a safari into the itinerary. Of course, it might be the tigers that most people want to see in the wild, but there are also Asiatic lions and leopards to see from the big cat family. Indian elephants and rhinos, crocodiles and bears are just a few of the other creatures you might see on safari in India.
