Tours of India take you from lively, colourful cities to glorious national parks. Visit one of the Wonders of the World, see colonial architecture and history come to life, relax on golden beaches and enjoy a peaceful houseboat stay. Our Destination Specialists can help you plan the perfect itinerary, or simply browse our suggested India tours below for inspiration.

One of the best ways to explore India is by train. Our Maharajas' Express - Treasures of India tour allows you to see the top sights and attractions of this sprawling country, while taking you back to the golden age of travel. This opulent train journey through the country takes in frenetic India, historic Agra and the Taj Mahal, peaceful Ranthambore National Park and beautiful royal Jaipur.

If you prefer to explore the main attractions of India at a slower pace, book our Taj and Tigers tour. This tour visits the Golden Triangle, consisting of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, and is the most popular with first time visitors to India. Your private tour includes the palaces and markets of Delhi, the Taj Mahal at Agra and the beautiful pink city of Jaipur. Added to this is Ranthambore National Park, where you’ll have the chance to see tigers.

Enjoy a tour of India off the beaten track on our India's Himalayan Heritage Tour. An expert guide will take you through the cultures and religious history of Northern India, including the temples dotted throughout the Himalayas. Stay in luxury hill resorts, wander the streets of charming towns and take in the beautiful valleys from the mountains.

“A tour of India would not be complete without a tour of the Golden Triangle in your visit to India. Consisting of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, this is arguably one of the most popular tour itineraries here, and is the best way to ensure you see some of the very best destinations India has to offer.”

“The best place to spot tigers in the wild are the Bandhavgarh and Ranthambore National Parks, with the former having the highest density of tigers in the region, and the latter being a famous wildlife photography hot spot. You can also expect to see leopards, hyenas and crocodiles.”

Rachel, Destination Executive

“Make sure you have a bottle of water handy at all times. While it’s a given that India’s dry, hot summers can leave you dehydrated and fatigued, some travellers have experienced discomfort after consuming the tap water.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is Jaipur referred to as the ‘Pink City’?

During Prince Albert’s 1876 tour of India, Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh II determined that by beautifying his city and painting it terracotta pink (widely known as a hospitable and welcoming colour), the Prince would be enticed to visit Jaipur. This would ultimately give the maharaja the chance to strengthen ties with the British aristocracy and establish a bond with Royal family. After a successful visit, the maharaja then went as far as passing a law to make it illegal to paint any building in Jaipur any other colour than pink.
