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.

TESTIMONIALS

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.

Local guide Vikas was also a brilliant choice, always open to chat about India and arrange some extra wishes. He was tireless, always living the slogan – ‘In India, everything is possible!’ It was just an amazing, brilliant, fantastic journey every hour of the way. I really fell in love with the country and I can’t wait to return!

My recent trip through Rajasthan with Ekno Tours was incredible. I was a bit apprehensive about taking a group of 18 women on tour but I needn’t have worried as Vikas and Sharon had everything covered and managed the group with ease offering guidance, insight and flexibility along the way to meet the group’s needs. The accommodation was comfortable and all the meals were divine (it’s important to like Indian food).

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.

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.
