A vast spread of culture and heritage is found in India. The best presentation can be seen in the South Indian states. There are colourful and magnificent monuments built by the rulers of that area.

FAQs

How many people will be on my trip?
Good things come in small packages, which is why we keep our group sizes down. This means we’re small enough to remain flexible as we thread our way through communities without intimidating the locals. On most of our trips you’ll be part of an intimate group of 12-16 people, though our group sizes are on average 10 people. Our Overland trips are in purpose-built vehicles that can carry up to 24 travellers. Group sizes are displayed on each trip’s overview page on our website.
Can I just do part of the trip?
Although you won’t be reimbursed for any portion of the trip unused, you can opt to sign off the trip if you need to leave a day or so earlier. If you let us know before travel that you’ll be arriving late or need to leave before the trips ends, we will notify our team on the ground to best accommodate your requirements.

what a deal

From beginning to end my wife and I have enjoyed this Indian experience. The driver and porter made travelling safe and comfortable. Our tour guide gave informative and knowledgeable detail of the sites we visited in your country. His English was easy to understand and he always gave clear and concise directions and well thought out timings. Manjit has an easy going nature towards the customer and would go the extra distance to provide a better customer experience. We would highly recommend this tour to future travelers to India.
