India Travel Information

Where to start? It is hard to express in words how diverse and incredible India is, and the country would take a lifetime to truly see and understand.


Although at times challenging, the real source of enjoyment you gain from traveling through India would have to be in its simple charm, its frenetic streets, its gazing eyes, its colorful spices, its raucous bazaars and its unparalleled beauty (apart from perhaps the beauty of its majestic neighbor - Nepal).

Where to start? It is hard to express in words how diverse and captivating travel to India can be, and the country would take a lifetime to truly see and understand.

Although at times challenging, the real source of enjoyment you gain from India would have to be in its simple charm, its frenetic streets, its gazing eyes, its colorful spices, its raucous bazaars and its unparalleled beauty. Each step on Indian soil is an onslaught for the senses. There’s a discovery to be made around every corner, giving India a fair claim to be the true traveler’s country. Put simply, India will blow your mind.

Best time of the year to visit India?

Generally speaking, the worst time to visit India is during monsoon season (between the months of June to October), however, that is when I traveled through India and didn't come across any problems.

The best months to travel to India are between November and February, when the monsoons are completely gone and the weather is fair.

Summer months are also popular between March-May but the heat can be quite overwhelming at times. The mountains are perfect to visit during the summer months because of the clear sky and soothing air.

Anyone left unsatisfied after their India travels, it’s only because you were simply craving more of this infectious beauty.

Food and Culture of India

Exhilarating for the first time traveler and a challenge even for the more experienced of you, traveling to India is a great way to see the intense spirituality and profound religious meaning that is linked so inextricably with Indian life. A trip to the Ganges river will be one to savor, at whatever point you are along the symbolic river, especially if it's down by a burning Ghat in Varanasi. Furthermore, visits to various temples, forts and religious ceremonies are equally as awe-inspiring.

People celebrate Indian food worldwide but it's not until you complete a tour of this desirable country that you realize the beauty and meaning of Indian food. Northern curries, swept up with chapati bread are prevalent throughout and the irresistible dosa of the south serves a mouth-watering selection of pancake wrapped sauces and flavors. Additionally, delve into creamy lentil dishes or soak it down with a refreshing kingfisher beer. Temptingly cheap and consistently satisfying, Indian cuisine is a way of life.

Main Attractions and Tourist Regions in India

Taj Mahal tours are just one reason to head north, but with the nearby bustling capital of New Delhi, adventure trips to the Himalayan regions of Kashmir (containing treks that are comparable in beauty to neighboring Nepal and Bhutan), the inconceivably attractive region of Rajasthan (a must see), along with the famous golden triangle, India in the north is nothing short of spectacular.

The city of Agra (location of Taj Mahal) isn't worth staying in any longer than the time you have allocated for the precious Taj Mahal, so swiftly move on to the much more appealing Varanasi to the east or New Delhi to the west. Varanasi, a world away from the comforts of home you are probably used to, is the most shocking and overwhelming of Indian cities, predominantly down to its profound spiritual levels.
Head to the very east to the vibrant Kolkata, the hugely populated Indian city where space is scarce and desperation coexists with a thriving intellectual and cultural scene. North from Delhi are tours and treks of Kashmir, offering scintillating hiking trails and picturesque scenery. Hang out with the hippies and meditate, practice yoga or simply brush up on your Buddhist knowledge in the popular retreat of McLeod Ganj (suburb of Dharamshala).

A tour around Rajasthan is top priority. With an array of charming cities and diverse colors, it is essential that you don't miss this experience. Jaipur is the most popular, with its pink walled citadel and its magical lake palace, but for me, Jodhpur (the blue city) steals all the thunder (not just because blue is my favorite color). The vast amount of conjoined blue merges into one miraculous blue facade, best observed from the top of Mehrangarh fort.

From the pink and blue city, head west to Jaisalmer, a desert city made of sandstone with a large fort overlooking the city. Take desert trips and sleep under the starry desert sky while your camel waits to plod you back to your hotel.

Udaipur is next on your tour. The 'romantic city' is the setting for the James Bond film 'Octopussy' and so many of the opulent palaces and grand hotels are instantly recognizable. Udaipur is also home to some fine restaurants and an abundance of great artisan stores. Do not miss the sunrise/sunset on your stay in this Indian gem.

South India holidays are just as wonderful, with options ranging from the cool and thriving metropolis of Mumbai where university culture mixes with fascinating history, the beach holidays and party holidays of Goa where trance pilgrims and luxury resort seekers head and the labyrinth of seductive waterways of Kerala. The appeal in south India lies not only in its landscape but also in its flawless cuisine. It is here, the home of the Dosa, where arguably the best Indian food originates.

Gloria Hernández, January 2018

Very attentive service, but did not report the places where you had to book in advance.

Bjarke Bekhøj, December 2017

Friendly and good service.

Sarah Arnold, December 2017

Himanshu was outstanding and really helpful - constantly available before and during the holiday. He took care of everything - all we had to do was relax and enjoy the holiday! His accommodation suggestions were exceptional and we had a great time.

Don Hounsell, October 2017

My wife and I spent one week in Kerala, India in October 2017. Before we booked, I corresponded with Amit to make sure the plan suited our needs - he was very helpful and willing to adapt the itinerary to suit us. The trip went very smoothly, and we could not fault the planning and organization in any way. Our driver was awesome - so thoughtful, so attentive and so helpful. He met us at the airport, and looked after us for 8 days until he delivered us back to the airport.

We spent two full days in Fort Cochin, then drove to Munar for two nights, then to Periyan for one night and on to the back-waters for one night in a resort and one night on the house boats. Our only regret was that we didn't plan another night at Periyan amongst the spices and coffee plantations - this place was beautiful.

Although the itinerary was well planned, there was plenty of scope to adapt and fit in with what we wanted to do each day, and to give us 'space'.
I would heartily recommend Amit, and our driver Baiju.

I have visited India many times, but this was my first visit to Kerala. It has given me a new and positive perspective.

Very professional, he provided us with attractions we wanted. Not only he helped us with cultural and historical sites but with recreational as well, such as cooking class, tour on the vintage car, folklore evening and even a spa. All of the activities: cultural and others were very well planned.
