OUR EXPERTS SAY

A specially designed family holiday in North India with plenty going on to keep the younger ones – and most importantly the parents - happy.

That’s right, a family holiday in India - where else can you ride on cycle rickshaws, spot tigers in the wild, make your own block print souvenirs, play with tame elephants, fly kites with the locals, cycle through villages and ride camels and camp in sand dunes? These things are fun for all ages.

This trip has been designed to combine all these activities with stays in informal hotels where parents can put their feet up and let the kids run riot. Indian people in general love children and, whether you plan to or not, you are going to end up making plenty of friends along the way.

Remember, this is just a suggested itinerary - your own holiday can be tailored to your preference of budget, duration, locations and experiences. Get in touch to discuss your holiday.
