Indian Subcontinent Tours & Package Trips

Visit the exotic lands of India, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bhutan, or unwind on the tropical beaches of the Maldives with our range of escorted group tours and private trips.


Experience the colour and magic of a holiday to India, Sri Lanka, Nepal or Bhutan. Offering a select collection of guided group tours and private packages, we have something to suit all styles of travel, time-frames and budgets. From the fertile Himalayan foothills and the regal palaces of legendary Rajasthan, to the steps of the marble Taj Mahal and the palm-fringed beaches of Sri Lanka, or the fluttering prayer flags of Nepal and Bhutan, these countries will enchant even the most seasoned traveller.

Our group tours to the Indian Subcontinent are led by expert and passionate local tour guides who will ensure your holiday is fun and hassle-free from start to finish. Tour group sizes in India typically range from 15 to 20 travellers and are much smaller in Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bhutan.

Indian Subcontinent Group Tours

Our Signature escorted group tours in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bhutan are what make On The Go Tours special. With these small group tours, you will be escorted by an expert licensed English-speaking tour guide, and will stay in good quality 3-4 star accommodation, including cultural abodes including the Maharajah's palace in India. You'll take in the best of the region, from the legendary Taj Mahal in India, to the tiger parks of Rajasthan, Sri Lanka's Cultural Triangle and the mighty Himalayas in Nepal.

Indian Subcontinent Family Tours

In India and Sri Lanka, we offer a selection of dedicated family packages, perfect for parents with children aged 5+. And there are dedicated tours for teenagers in Sri Lanka, too! These tours are a fun and educational way to explore the region as a family. You will still enjoy plenty of sightseeing at highlights such as the Taj Mahal and tiger safaris too! But these tours include more free time for unwinding at the hotel and move at a bit of a slower pace than our other group tours - they're designed specifically with families in mind!

Indian Subcontinent Short Stays & City Breaks

You've probably noticed, but India is massive! Our selection of short breaks and city stays give you the opportunity to extend your time in India with us. These trips can easily be combined with any of our group or private tours in the country, meaning you could combine your tour with a stay in Mumbai, Varanasi, Shimla or Amritsar. Bolt on a beach break in tropical Goa, or add a tiger safari in Ranthambore or Corbett national parks. The majority of these breaks start in Delhi too, which is where most of our group tours start and end - this makes it even easier to combine these trips! Speak to our Reservations team today if you would like to add a short stay to your India booking!
