Indian Getaway

From £495 for 11 days
Trip Overview
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. 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. It may seem challenging 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: We are aware of maintenance work scheduled at the Taj Mahal complex which is due to last until late 2018. There may be times when there is scaffolding around the building or over the dome but the site is scheduled to remain open for the duration of all works.

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
