Indian Getaway

From £470 for 11 days
Trip Overview
See beautiful henna hands, chow down on some chivda (a crunchy cereal snack), lose yourself in the labyrinth of lanes, but whatever you do don’t disrespect a cow – these are the rules of India. In a country of 1.2 billion, prepare for an overwhelming face slap of culture and diversity that is sure to stir the soul. Cities contrast between the rich and poor, old and new, good and bad. It may seem difficult at first, but the people, food and culture make it an utterly captivating destination. Plunge head first into an experience like no other.

Please note, the Taj Mahal is currently undergoing maintenance to restore the original colour of it's main dome. This means that the main dome will be surrounded by scaffolding. This restoration work is expected to last until April 2018.

Trip Highlights

•   The majesty and story of the Taj Mahal is a big part of India’s allure, and never disappoints

•   Explore the arches, gardens and the unforgettable Hall of Mirrors in the impressive Amber Fort with a local guide

•   Watching the sunrise on the holy Ganges River in Varanasi can be somewhat of a spiritual experience. This thought-provoking part of the journey invigorates even the weariest of travellers

•   The village of Tordi Garh is a place few travellers get to see. Spend a night in a Heritage-listed palace in this peaceful town

•   Travelling across India wouldn’t be complete without a journey on a sleeper train. With padded bunks and vendors selling chai and samosas, they’re a quintessential Indian experience and perfect for catching up on sleep while on the move
