In this selection of suggested holiday itineraries, you will find a focus on the central states of India. Delhi and Mumbai are the major hubs, and you can connect from there quite easily into the central states.
Madhya Pradesh is the heartland of India. It is home to the incredible wildlife which inspired Kipling’s ‘The Jungle Book’, spiritual Maheshwar and the evocative splendour of places such as Bhopal, Gwalior and Khajuraho. Indeed, Madhya Pradesh can rival neighbouring Rajasthan for palaces and forts, but with far fewer visitors.
Uttar Pradesh is not just about Agra and the iconic Taj Mahal; it is also home to Lucknow and the vibrant religious city of Varanasi. Up in the very northwest is Punjab, bordering Pakistan, with its religious diversity, distinctive culture and the famous golden temple in Amritsar.
All of our luxurious holidays in India are completely bespoke and designed for you. Privately holidays, fully guided boutique hotels, comfortable transportation, and smooth operations are a given. This allows you to get on and experience these magnificent regions: far larger in themselves than most entire countries!
