Description of Family holiday to India, sightseeing and safari
This family holiday to India is a superb mix of both sightseeing and safari, all organised for you as it is a small group, fully guided tour with other like minded families. So all you need to do is sit back and enjoy the colours, culture and cuisine of northern India.
A ten day trip, with seven nights in hotels and two in small lodges, you will be travelling with 3-5 other families, to some of the region’s natural and cultural highlights. Starting in Delhi, with plenty of time to explore the Old City, we head to Agra and the Taj Mahal.
We then take a break from history and urban life and head to Ranthambore National Park, where game drives give you a chance to spot wildlife greats such as Bengal tigers, sloth bears, nilgai antelope, sambar deer and jungle cats.
The rest of your trip is in the stunning state of Rajasthan, a whole other world from the rest of India really. Explore the majestic ‘Pink City’ of Jaipur, the luscious Aravalli Hills and the fascinating artistic heritage of Shekhawati.
On this family trip to India you will stay mostly in hotels, including typically elegant heritage hotels that India is famous for. We will use a mixture of transport between places on the itinerary, with private transfers and also some train travel, but all the time accompanied by your superb expert guide.
Please note that children aged 17 years and younger receive a 10% discount off the price of their trip. The recommended minimum age is five years old.

Reviewed on 22 Aug 2018 by Alexander Auboeck
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
Taj Mahal, Amber Palace, Ranthambhore National Park.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
Travelling in August is possible. The Monsoon did not affect us much. There are very few tourists and the countryside is green. Don't count on a good match
with other families.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
To the extent that one bought or consumed local products local people benefited. Our impact on the environment was negative (flights, local travel, bottled water, pools etc).
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
The key is the guide and our guide was just brilliant and made all the difference. The last two/three days could be improved. Sightseeing in Nawalgarth and
Aslisar was virtual identical and was short. There was not much else to do. These days felt like a slow return to Delhi. Without this small weakness I would
have rated the holiday five.
PlanetResponsible mission: As adventure travellers we relish and celebrate the diversity of the world. We also recognise our obligation to protect the environments that we explore. Our aim is to tread lightly, whilst contributing to maintain the world’s culture and nature, and most importantly to engage the help of all our customers to utilise the potential of tourism as a tool to aid sustainable development. We believe that responsible travellers are welcome in the places that they visit.
Partnerships: As a company we support The Travel Foundation, a UK charity that has been established to promote responsible travel practises throughout the whole of the travel industry. We also work with a number of charity partners who work in the destinations that we visit; including Friends of Conservation and Born Free Foundation. We partner with many small grassroots projects throughout the destinations that we visit - they all share our responsible vision.
On this trip: We travel in small groups which has a minimal impact on the environment as we go. On this trip we use a local Indian agent, locally managed hotels and local leaders. Not only does this mean that more of the money we generate stays within the community, but their local knowledge and expertise helps us to better understand the environment in which we are travelling, whilst reinforcing within the local community that preserving this environment is both important and worthwhile.
