Itinerary

  • Arrive to India

    Welcome to India, a country that requires little introduction. Unrivalled cultures awash throughout the huge sub-continent, giving rise to phenomenal food, warm people, incredible diversity and immersive architecture influenced by religion, pride, patriotism and history. Walking around the streets of India can feel like a trip through time, watching brahmins wash in the rivers of the ganges one morning and then glimpsing sun rays bounce of the glistening white marble walls of the Taj Mahal the next. This is India. Arrive any time throughout the day and meet your group leader in your hotel in the heart of New Delhi. Tonight we?ll venture out as a group for our welcome dinner and our first chance to sample that famous Indian Cuisine.
