Celebrate Holi in India: The colourful festival of Holi is celebrated to mark the triumph of good over evil brought about by the burning and destruction of the demoness named Holika in Hindu tradition. Held on the day after the full moon in March each year, the festival also marks the end of winter and the abundance of the upcoming spring harvest season. Named the 'festival of colour', people throughout India throw coloured water at one another and get thoroughly drenched, ending up resembling a walking rainbow. Other rituals are also held over this festive period including large bonfires and special pujas where people sing and dance. It's a wonderful time to visit India with locals and visitors in a carefree and cheeky mood.

India is home to some of the finest national parks on the planet for spotting deer, leopard, langur, wild boar, rhino, elephant, buffalo and of course, the elusive Bengal tiger. Top picks include Ranthambhore, Kanha and Corbett, where there's a good chance of spotting tiger. There are very few places where this rare and enigmatic big cat can still be glimpsed in the wild and India has the highest density of tigers in the world. And for something unique, consider Kaziranga - home to the rare one-horned Indian rhino. read more

India tour reviews

Scoring an average traveller rating of 4.61 out of 5 based on 112 recent reviews — See All India Reviews

The tour was amazing and it was all thanks to Vansh. His attention to detail and his ability to get on with all ages, answer questions and ensure that everyone was having the best holiday, was second to none. Vansh went the extra mile for members of the party, ensuring that their needs were met and he was able to deal politely with the locals who wanted us to buy souvenirs and show us their skills. We felt that Vansh brought the group together and the experiences we had through him will live with us forever.”  

Kathryn McCubbin • Submitted 3 Oct 2016

The Taj Express was fantastic right from the start and exceeded all of my expectations. It was a wonderful taste of India and our guide Vansh was just brilliant. No task was too much for him and his number one priority was our enjoyment, safety and comfort. Vansh has a great sense of humour and interwines this with speaking about the history of various areas in India that the tour visits; he was very engaging and did everything with a smile on his face. Our bus driver and assistant were fantastic as well and the tour was so well organised and everything ran seamlessly. The quality of the hotels was great as well and a highlight of the tour for me (aside from the Taj Mahal of course!) was our stay in Alsisar and visit to the local school. I cannot recommend this tour or On The Go highly enough!”  

Lauren Kruger • Submitted 28 Sep 2016

Our initial tour of India was fabulous. Vansh explained the culture, history and current way of life brilliantly and brought the country alive. Vansh was extremely helpful, sorting out issues any one of us might have and going way beyond what I'm sure is expected of him. He found pharmacies, plug adaptors and ATM machines. Thank you very much Vansh!”

Planned facelift for the main dome of the Taj

Now's the time to plan that trip to India and the Taj Mahal, the world's greatest monument ever built in the name of love. In April 2017 the Taj's main dome will undergo a facelift with mud-pack therapy used to restore the gleaming white of the marble used to build the structure. Scaffolding will cover the main dome for as long as the cleaning process takes, which is expected to be up to a year, so for uninterrupted views and perfect shots of the Taj Mahal, get there quick!

Recommended places to visit in India

India is as diverse as it is vast, with traditions, local culture and cuisine varying considerably from region to region. Compiling a 'best of' is no easy feat, but to get you going with planning your trip, here's a few of our favourite places to visit:

Darjeeling - Tea Central

View on map
Tea plantation | Darjeeling | India

A perfect spot to sip your daily cuppa and with tea plantations aplenty, Darjeeling sits at an altitude of 2,200 metres with a backdrop of mighty snow-clad Himalayan peaks. A visit to the nearby Ghoom monastery is a must and there's plenty of of fabulous trekking in the surrounding area too.

Agra - Home of the Taj Mahal

View on map
The Taj Mahal | Agra | India

An absolute must-see for a first time visit to India and one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, the incredible Taj Mahal in Agra will probably lure you back to India again in no time at all! Try our Taj Traveller trip which includes a day in Agra visiting both the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort.

The Golden Temple - Amritsar

View on map
The Golden Temple | Amritsar | India

As the spiritual and cultural centre of the Sikh religion, Amritsar is home to Harimandir Sahib, better known in the West as The Golden Temple. Constructed of white marble, bronze and gold leaf, the Golden Temple looks absolutely stunning at night and a must-see. The local food from Amritsar is renowned too and be sure not to miss the colourful daily Goodnight Ceremony, also known as the Wagah-Attari Border retreat

Ranthambhore - Tiger Country!

View on map
Tiger tracking | India

There’s an abundance of wildlife at Ranthambhore and if you’re lucky you might spot a tiger or two. It’s also home to the impressive 10th century Ranthambhore Fort, a top location for bird watching. Consider our Shere Khan trip for a couple of relaxing days at Ranthambhore after taking in the key sites of India's North.

Varanasi - The Holy City

View on map
The Ganges | Varanasi | India

Set on the banks of the Ganges, Varanasi is considered the holiest of places in India and has been a centre of learning and civilization for over 2000 years. Visiting Varanasi can be an assault on the senses, but it's certainly rewarding and you'll definitely feel like you've truly seen India. Don't miss out on a sunrise boat ride down the Ganges.

Jaipur - The Pink City

View on map

With 18th century Jantar Mantar, an impressive City Palace complex and the lofty Amber fort, there's good reason why Jaipur forms the third point (after Delhi and Agra) on India's famed Golden Triangle. Jaipur has a vibrant city market too, a top spot to spend a few hours late afternoon after a day exploring the cities sites.

Udaipur - The Lake City

View on map
Lake Pichola | Udaipur | India

One of Rajasthan's gems, the city of lakes, Udaipur is a firm favourite for travellers to India. Highlights include the famous lake side City Palace, the 18th century haveli museum of Bagore-ki-haveli, and the impressive Monsoon Palace perched hillside overlooking the lake. A boat ride for lunch at the exquisite Taj Lake Palace is a real highlight too.

Kerala - The Beautiful South
