E Brochure 2024/25

Namaste! Welcome to our India. A country so huge and vast – from the jungles of the south to the Himalayas of the north and the deserts of the west, India has it all and so have we.

We have put together a range of tours, extensions and bespoke experiences that combine popular must dos like the Taj Mahal and Jaipur with more exotic and remote locations like Ladakh, the Spiti Valley and Northeast India.

Our offices in India and Australia are on hand from the moment you arrive in India until you leave, and we always have your safety and comfort in mind.

Take a look at our 2024-2025 e-Brochure for more information.

'I had a terrific time in the lower foothills of the Himalayas with Vikas on the Hidden Gems of the Himalayas tour. I went in May and the weather was just perfect. The accomodations was great - varied and in interesting places. We did lots of extra little things that interested us, like visiting DAR (a dog rescue enterprise) and the famous cricket ground in Dharamsala. I am looking forward to my next Indian adventure!'

'It is difficult to put into words the impact of this wonderful pilgrimage. I enjoyd travelling through the magnificent landscape of Ladakh and Spiti as well as the practice time in temples with our travelling Sangha (Buddhist community). It was wonderful to have Geshe Samten and the guides Vikas and Ashish with us.'

'Vikas was an excellent guide for the Hidden Gems of the Himalayas tour. He was fully informative, always patient, flexible with the client's needs and was able to adjust the itinerary as we requested. I always felt safe and well looked after. The accommodation was beyond my wildest dreams! Each hotel was a wonderful surprise, and reflected the area we were visiting. I saw a completely different India to what I have viewed before, and the trip was much more luxurious than I imagined.'

Vikas was our local guide when I went to India in 2013. He is the loveliest of people and looked after is really well. If I ever go back (and I am thinking about it) I would definitely want him as my guide again.

I decided to go on the Great Ocean Walk for a personal challenge - never having done long distance walking before. Surrounded in magnificent scenery of rugged coastline, good weather and a comfy bed with hot showers , it was an ideal and enjoyable short break with a difference and all the arrangements taken care of by Sharon.

Vikas is a remarkable tour guide. Well organised, fun and with such an inspirational life story! It was great to have him interpret and explain situations, history and culture. I can’t actually speak highly enough of him – one gem of a tour guide.
