Overview

First Timer Tour

India is Chaotic, bamboozling, intoxicating, crazy, exasperating, wonderful, squalid, beautiful, daunting, overwhelming, and fantastic.
India is all these things, and more. India is almost a continent and is not possible to visit in one attempt. There’s no denying that travelling to India can be a major culture shock, especially on your first visit. It’s a huge and bewildering country, with many different religions and cultures, and cities that roar with traffic and bustle with activity non-stop. You can experience Spiritual India, enjoy wildlife encounters, Beaches & waterways, Mughal architecture, Trekking & mountains.
Allocate two nights at least for each place you visit and, as always, the longer you stay in a city the more you'll be able to cozy up to locals who can give you their hot insider tips.
