From the vast Himalayas to the palm-fringed Keralan backwaters, India has it all. If you’ve never been before, we would be truly thrilled to introduce you to this incredible country. If a return visit is what’s on your mind, you’ll know the inescapable pull: once you’ve been to India, it gets under your skin. It is our belief that no nation on earth quite matches up to its breathtaking variety, multi-sensory overload, scope, and sheer beauty.
With a distinct north/south divide, India is a country of extremes: the ultimate paradox of chaos and serenity. One of the oldest civilizations in the world, India has a kaleidoscopic variety and rich cultural heritage. A nation founded on Hinduism that is still host to eight other recognised major religions, it is a place where intimations of the sacred can be found on every street corner, from a shrine or temple to a whiff of incense or a glimpse of a transcendent view. Every kind of holiday is possible here, from desert safaris in Rajasthan, staying in the elegant courtyarded houses known as havelis and the former palaces of the maharajahs, to breathing the spirit of the Sixties on a Goan beach, to a pilgrimage to the hill stations and historical sites of the Raj.
India is intense – that’s why we love it. But it can be confusing for the uninitiated. Let us stitch together an Indian adventure – like an exquisite ceremonial sari – featuring several contrasting sites, all seamlessly sequenced. We can suggest highlights for the India novice, or the path less travelled for the seasoned Indophile.
India reveals a different aspect of her eclectic personality – exotic, extravagant, elegant – to every visitor. Allow us to make the introduction.
