These suggested holiday ideas are designed to get the intrepid holiday-maker further away from the beaten path. India receives surprisingly few tourists relative to its enormous size, so with a little bit of due care and attention, we can devise a trip that takes the visitor well off the normal tourist trail. With ever-improving infrastructure, getting off the tourist trail doesn’t have to mean incredibly long and difficult journeys; with some careful planning and forethought, timeless India awaits.
In partnership with the most passionate local guides, Experience Travel Group have devised itineraries that will take you to see some of these corners of India – and they are incredibly rewarding for the adventurous traveller. As usual, all of these tours will be tailor-made for you at no extra cost.
We know you'll want to see the main sites too and experience some quality hotels, so we've not neglected that in the sample itineraries, with some fantastic converted palaces and haveli hotels included along the way, combined with dreamy lodges and accurate information on the best of the rest where necessary.
