Whether you want an adventure on a camel safari across the breathtaking Rajasthan Desert, or simply take a luxurious lie down on the sun blushed sands, you’ll find it in India.
India is rich in culture and spice. There are inspiring temples, mosque cluttered skylines and cavernous bazaars to see.

Farmers can be found using ancient methods to earn their living and minutes away there are state of the art factories producing gleaming cutting edge gadgets that are sold across the world.
In the UK, Indian cuisine is embraced but the real cuisine of India is far more diverse and delicate than any Indian restaurant in the world.

The important thing about travelling to India is to check that it’s not between May and October which is generally the monsoon season. Otherwise, India tends to enjoy great weather and the culture will just sweep you off your feet.
