  • Why we love India

    • No trip to India is complete without a cup of chai from a roadside stall. It doesn’t matter which stall, or which city: they’re all good. Ginger, cardamom, cinnamon and star anise – this is the smell and taste of India
    • In India, even the simplest journey is a headlong plunge into a colour palate of boundless vivacity. Perfect mounds of dyes on a market table are the brightest pinks, yellows and reds. Gold and silver thread in endless variation on a thousand saris. Dazzlingly white lakeside palaces, azure tropical beaches, brilliant green fields
    • In Karauli, we stay in the palace Maharaja Ganesh Pal Deo Bhadur built in 1938 for himself and his guests, and where his family still lives today. It’s still furnished in period style, with original art deco furniture, deep shady verandahs and hunting trophies on the wall and (in the case of a long-deceased tiger) on the floor
    • While most of our travel is by private vehicle, it would be remiss of us not to include a few legs by train. From the fabulous bustle of the stations in Delhi or Bikaner to the chai-seller’s welcome cry down the aisle, this is a fantastic chance to meet the locals and see the brilliant Indian countryside
    • Try the Palak Paneer, which is paneer (a kind of cottage cheese) in a spinach sauce

    Safety information

    Your safety is our top priority. It’s one of the main things we consider when designing and operating our trips. Here’s some of the ways we help to keep you safe, and a few of the things you can do to make your trip memorable for all the right reasons. Before you travel We monitor travel alerts provided by the Australian, UK, USA and Canadian governments on a daily basis. Before a tour goes on sale we assess any risks and decide how to reduce and manage these. If we determine that an entire trip, part of a trip or an activity is too risky we won’t do it. It’s as simple as that. If we can’t address the issues and improve conditions we might modify an itinerary, change the accommodation or even decide not to travel to a certain location. Our overseas staff and local leaders are trained to address any health and safety concerns during trips. Before you travel, we’ll give you an emergency phone number. You’ll also get comprehensive pre-departure information, with information about vaccinations and other relevant health issues. We’ll also tell you if there’s any special clothing or equipment you need to bring. During your trip: You local leader is trained in first aid and always carries a first aid kit. Being a local means that if something does go wrong they know fastest and most effective way to get help. We’ll also give you a 24-hour emergency number in addition to the emergency destination telephone number. What you can do: Read through all the information we send you. If you’ve got any questions we’re always available to help. Keep an eye out for travel alerts by consulting your local Foreign Office. We also monitor these daily so that we can modify tours if necessary. Get some medical travel advice about the countries you are visiting, particularly about vaccinations and the type of personal first aid kit you should carry. Make sure you tell us any medical conditions, special needs or dietary requirements you might have. Get your vaccinations and take relevant medication well before travelling so they have time to take effect.
