South India by rail holiday
We very much enjoyed this holiday, completely met and often exceeded our expectations. (more)Carole Noble
An amazing way to get an insight into the many sides of India. Trains are a brilliant way to see the countryside and talk to Indian people. The tour company was the most helpful travel company I have ever dealt with and I highly recommend using them. (more)David Jelley
The most memorable part of the holiday was staying in some fabulous homestays. Arriving at the first one, Nelpura, Moncompu in a canoe felt like royalty. (more)Clair Butler

India small group holiday, a food adventure
How would you rate your holiday overall? One of the best (more)Mick Sanders
Most memorable was undoubtedly visiting the Taj Mahal, although the journey on the overnight train was a close, but completely contrasting, second. (more)Sarah Memery
Excellent! I would do it again in a heartbeat...Tasting street food of India, feeling reassured that our leader had assessed the risks of hygiene at that particular outlet. The food was always delicious and unforgettable (more)mary souster
From £1305 - £1635 excluding flights
Rajasthan art history & architecture tour
Memorable parts? There were two big parts of our holiday: the culture and the nature. From a cultural perspective, we learned so much about the history of various cultures within Rajasthan. The forts we visited (Mehrangarh, Roopangarh, Amber) were amazing, but the highlight was definitely staying at Jog Niwas, where our host/organizer Shanane Davis lives. She taught us so much about patronage and connoisseurship, sharing with our whole family a remarkably vast knowledge about textiles, art,... (more)Robert Macauley
From £580 - £598 excluding flights
Kerala Ayurveda & Yoga holiday, India
Jos arranged a trip of a lifetime for me and I would recommend it to all other independent travellers heading to Kerala. So much better than staying in bland, air conditioned (non spicy) tourist hotels! (more)Philippa Rimell
Arriving to the homestay and the wonderful setting of the bungalow, was breathtaking, it's so peaceful, and Lamy's cooking is lovely. (more)Maria Arbelaez
I loved the canoe ride on the backwaters. I also loved the hike with the naturalist. It was beautiful and he was completely fabulous. (more)Emily Blackburn
From £900 - £1400 excluding flights
Wildlife photography holiday in India
What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday? Actually seeing a tiger (more)Derek Trendell
Everything went smoothly and was very well organized...never to be forgotten experience...You won't regret it! (more)Elaine Carter
Most memorable? It would have to be seeing FIVE tigers however the whole holiday was fantastic. India is certainly a challenge especially the train stations. (more)Gillian Ash
From £630 - £810 excluding flights
Culinary homestay accommodation in India
Memorable parts? The cooking lessons were the best bit if this holiday, in particular the one we did in Jaipur Tips? Go for it! Local benefits? Maybe more of our payments went to the hosts but there did still seem to be several middle men. Overall rating? Excellent (more)Angela Rigby
From £30 - £100 per accommodation per night (sleeps 2)
