Maharaja’s and Palaces, Indian Summers and Hidden Cultures

North India is a fascinating destination not to be missed. There are few other places with such a long history, diverse culture and complex mix of people and religions – all set against the imposing snowy-peaked backdrop of the mighty Himalayas.

“Our Tailor-Made Tours are often based around a particular theme of interest, such as Indian Summers, British Raj Connections, Tea, Railways, Army Connections, Holy Ganges or Charitable Trips. If it’s luxury you are after, we can also find the very best places for you to stay and provide you with the most knowledgeable local guides and Historians who will travel with you from start to finish”.

We can help you to experience the very best of this region in a Small Escorted Tour or on a Tailor-Made Adventure tour - where we’ll help you to plan your own unique itinerary and your own pace.
