India has long attracted travellers from the UK with an affinity dating back to the pre-independence times of the British Raj. From influencing a generation of British artists in the 60s, most notably the Beatles, to the adoption of the ubiquitous Chicken Tikka Masala as Britain's national dish, our kinship with India is very much alive today.

Celebrate Diwali in India: While most festivals in India are local affairs, celebrated only in certain regions, Diwali truly unifies the country and is celebrated all over India as well as in Indian communities across the world. Diwali celebrates the victory of light over darkness, which symbolises the triumph of good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. The myths and legends that surround the festival vary according to the part of India in which you find yourself, but what dominates proceedings is an affirmation of hope, a general sense of bonhomie and goodwill. There's loads of fireworks, sweets & presents are exchanged and traditional ‘diya’ lamps are lit in the evenings.

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

Travel Operators for Tigers (TOFT): As members of TOFT, we pledge a USD$30 contribution to TOFT for every traveller that visits a tiger reserve in India with us. TOFT have set up a Practices Under Guidelines (PUG) certification recognising lodges that follow best practice and meet higher ecological and ethical standards.

Frequently asked questions about our touring holidays in India

I want to see the Taj Mahal - do you include this on your tours?

Yes we do. We include this New World Wonder on all our India group tours that cover the north. You'll spend the afternoon on a guided tour of the Taj Mahal, learning all about why and how it was built. Our visit to Agra also includes guided touring of the Agra Fort.

I'm interested in seeing tigers in India - what options do you have?

India is the best place in the world to see tigers in the wild. There are a number of national parks and wildlife reserves that have been set up to protect the numbers of this endangered species. We have two group tours that include two nights in Ranthambhore National Park where you will go on morning and afternoon game drives in search of the stripey big cat. We also have private itineraries to other parks for tiger safaris. If you want to know more, head to our guide on tiger spotting in India.

Should I be worried about food hygiene in India?

Many people worry that they might get sick in India but if you stick to the standard rules of safely eating abroad there's no reason why you should suffer. Stick to busy restaurants, avoid street food or anything that's been sat outside for long and forgo salads as the water is definitely not safe to drink. Indian cuisine is amazingly diverse and forms an integral part of the travel experience so don't be afraid to try new dishes and flavours. Our Top Travel Tips page has more info on food and eating out in India.

I'm a second time visitor to India. What can you offer me?

If you've already covered India's popular Golden Triangle, consider visiting the tropical south. The state of Kerala offers sandy beaches, lush waterways and wildlife reserves, and is a great choice for second-time visitors. Our escorted Captivating Kerala tour covers the best of the region in a week-long itinerary. Alternatively, we have a range of exciting private itineraries that cover everywhere from the far northeast to the less-visited south. You can also create your dream tailor-made holiday with the aid of our expert team. Get in touch to start planning.

How big are your tour groups and what is the age of your travellers?

On shorter itineraries that cover the Golden Triangle and other highlights in India's north, the average group size is around 18 passengers. Once you start travelling further afield on longer tours then this average size drops down to around 8-10 passengers. Our special festival departures are much larger due to the unique nature of the events we cover such as Holi and Diwali. You'll find a real mix of ages on our India tours from those in their late 20s to those in their early 70s. The average age is between 45-50 years.

What is the standard of hotels on your trips?

On our India group tours you'll be staying in 3-4 star hotels with a mix of modern and heritage properties. On all tours that visit the main sights of Rajasthan you'll get to experience former royal residences and beautiful havelis transformed into tourist accommodation. It'll give you a real insight into the region's cultural and architectural heritage. While in Kerala you'll spend a night aboard a traditional houseboat - it's the perfect way to explore the backwaters.

What sort of transport do you use?

For the most part you'll be travelling in comfortable, private vehicles with air-conditioning. The size of the vehicle depends on the group size with either mid-size people carriers or larger coaches. There will also be the chance to experience more local forms of transportation including a rickshaw ride in Delhi and a houseboat ride in Kerala.

When is the best time to visit India for general sightseeing?

India is a big country and the climate varies dramatically from north to south though the dry season is by far the best time to visit. The months of October to February are ideal as rainfall is minimal in most parts of the country, which makes sightseeing much more pleasurable. For more info on the weather, have a read of our Best Time to Visit India page.

India tour reviews

Scoring an average traveller rating of 4.67 out of 5 based on 139 recent reviews — See All India Reviews

We enjoyed the tour. Everything was well organised and our tour guide Sami was very helpful and kind. We had to return to Delhi one day before the rest of the group and everything was catered for. Our guide accompanied us to the train station on the 11th November and waited with us until the train arrived. Also, a complementary packed lunch was provided for us to eat on the train. A room at the Piccadilly hotel was reserved for us on the 11th November and a taxi drove us to Delhi airport on the 12th November to fly to Goa. Very good and professional service. Caroline Shaw was also very helpful and replied to all my queries promptly. ”  

Maria Dolores Zazo Serrano • Submitted 20 Nov 2017

What can I say! Not only was this my first trip to India, but also my first overseas. I had always wanted to see a country different to my own (Australia), and that I did! I chose to go at Diwali time, and so glad I did. It was incredible. I also chose the "bolt - on" of going up in a hot balloon, which was another first for me. It was fantastic, and especially being able to see the Indian villages from above in the basket. There were highlights throughout the tour. I cannot just pick one, but I will say that the Diwali made it more special. It was great also, to see the Taj Mahal as well as the temples and hear the history of each. The experience of Varanasi, I will never forget either. I felt incredibly lucky to have been able to be there in India, embracing it all. Our tour guide, Yusuf added his own touch and personality to the whole trip, but I have to say that I personally thank him from the bottom of my heart for he had a confident aura about him, which allowed me to relax. I can be a panic merchant, but with him in lead, I felt safe. He also made the Diwali night an evening I will never forget. I would love to go back to India one day, because I think it is a pretty incredible place to visit, with so much to learn and appreciate. Thank you On The Go Tours, And thank you Yusuf!”
