I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. The value for money was excellent, I doubt that we would've been able to pay for the accommodation, transport and activities for less than the cost of the trip, even if we were to organise the trip ourselves. I felt safe at all times.

The Road to Kathmandu

It was incredible. Definitely recommend doing as many optional extras as possible so you get the most out of your trip.

Welcome to India

Travel in India is pretty much like nowhere else in the world. It’s mind-blowing, mind-expanding, mind-boggling and anything but mind-numbing. And with about 1.2 billion people sharing the space, there’s probably that many experiences to be had. In fact almost any experience you can have on the planet can be found here.

That includes an all-night chai-athon while you wait for a cow to finish its nap on the train tracks. In the north you can ride a camel through the Thar Desert, meet the hippies of Jodphur, and live on lassis. Then there’s that little place called the Taj Mahal.

In the south it’s all about the go-slow. There are Kerala’s canals to cruise, Goa’s beaches to go all beach-y on and enough coconuts to build a coconut building out of.

India

The culture kaleidoscope of India and the turquoise waters and rolling hills of its teardrop island neighbour, Sri Lanka, will enlighten, inspire and challenge first-time travellers and seasoned veterans alike.

Experiencing either country will gobsmack and delight you from chaotic Colombo in the south to serene Dharamsala in the north.

The people, languages, customs, food and landscapes are hugely diverse and fascinating: In India, chaotic cities, colourful saris, rattling trains, holy rivers, welcoming villagers, world-renowned cuisine, hustling, bustling streets and romantic, captivating sights, sounds, scents and tastes weave together in an ever-fresh jumble, while in Sri Lanka, sleepy towns, historic fortresses and temples set snug in rolling hills, alongside wildlife reserves, charming colonial bungalows, beautiful beaches and the mad capital will similarly enthral.
