Travel to India, whether for the first or tenth time, is always a thrilling experience. Here the scenery varies from tropical beaches to huge global cities, and from Himalayan mountain scenery to magnificent Mughal architecture.
From the hustle and bustle of busy cities to the tranquillity of rural backwaters, we have a wide variety of small group tours in India to suit every type of traveller.
Join your expert local tour leader on a classic Golden Triangle tour to experience the chaotic markets of Delhi and watch the sunrise over the celestial Taj Mahal. Or jump in the saddle for a tour of Kerala by bike, exploring tropical forests and tea plantations. For those of you looking for a family adventure in India, get the kids face-to-face with nature on a game safari drive through the Ranthambore National Park in search of Bengal tiger, monkey and sloth.
Considering a trip to India but new to small group travel? We've answered some of the most-asked questions.
Every single one of our small group journeys has been designed to suit solo travellers: it varies depending on the trip you choose, but you can bet that around half of the travellers on your trip will be travelling alone. So, if there’s a trip you’ve always wanted to take but haven’t had the chance, don’t let being a solo traveller be the thing that puts you off.
Generally speaking, the best time to visit India is between October and April. During this time the weather is warm (but not too hot), dry, and sunny with clear blue skies. From December to February, Delhi can be a bit foggy but the temperatures are typically cooler.
If spotting exotic wildlife is high on your agenda, head to India in April or May for the best chance of sightings. Water becomes scarce during the dry season so animals tend to congregate around the water holes to drink and bathe.
The monsoon season usually occurs from May to September. During this time it’s generally wet, rainy and humid, but it is a good time to visit the north, especially the desert state of Rajasthan and the mountainous region of Ladakh where roads become passable after the snowy winter.
To witness the spectacular Pushkar Camel Fair, book your Rajasthan trip towards the end of November, or to immerse yourself in the colourful festivities of the Hemis Festival, book a Northern India trip in June.
From big wows to hidden gems, our tours leave you feeling that you've really explored.
