With mountain train journeys, tiger safaris, backwater houseboats, drinking out of coconuts, camel rides in the desert and a culture that is so vibrant they will feel as if they are part of a movie set, travelling in India with kids is one of the most eye opening trips you will take as a family. Simple things like their first trip in a tuk tuk will be a memory for life. As will playing cricket with the children at your homestay. The welcome for families is just phenomenal. As with travel anywhere in the world, when you have kids, the door is usually opened wide but in India it is flung open with fervent excitement.
