India Holidays

Culture, cuisine, colour

Vivid colours, unfamiliar sounds, the exotic aromas of a faraway land - your senses will go into overdrive on an India holiday.

India is a country that simultaneously meets and exceeds your expectations. The chaos of the biggest cities will be just what you expect, but the sheer variety India has to offer will take even the most hardened of travellers by surprise.

Discover the real India by plunging yourself in at the deep end: haggle for spices in its bustling bazaars, watch a ritual procession at a temple by night, taste the extraordinary flavours of Indian cuisine, and stroll by the sea as the sun goes down. You’ll soon realise that there’s a lot more to this colourful country than the Taj Mahal - though that more than lives up to the hype.

Seeing the remote villages and the happy smiling people who were actually pleased to see us. Exploring the markets and how the locals live.
One day the travelling was too long, I think it was around 10 hours.
