A bit disappointing really
South India by rail holiday
From
£2,134
excluding flights
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

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
South Indian food tour, Kerala
From
£1,473
excluding flights
Memorable parts? As this was our first time in India, all the places were memorable for their own reasons. Even our first experience of the traffic was 'exciting' We had an excellent driver/guide who was able to offer a lot of help. Tips? This is also the first time of staying in different places. With hindsight I would have dramatically reduced the amount of clothes we took and used the laundry service. Local benefits? Absolutely. We knew the homestays supported local... (more)Karen Dickinson

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
Rajasthan art history & architecture tour
From
£580
excluding flights
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
Kerala Ayurveda & Yoga holiday, India
From
£900
excluding flights
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
Yoga in India and volunteering holiday
From
£529
excluding flights
Memorable parts? This was a volunteering holiday so that whole premise was fantastic. I'd never done that before and it felt fabulous to be really doing something even though on holidays. Tips? I think that everything on this holiday was very well organised but I think that you need to stay in contact with the people on the ground as much as possible so having a local sim is really handy. Oh, and find out if it's school holiday time when you go as that does make a difference to the... (more)Kristin Walters
