The spice hills of Karnataka and the backwaters of Kerala in the mellow south-west; the foothills of the Indian Himalaya; the deserts and palaces of Rajasthan; the tiger reserves and teeming forests of Madhya Pradesh… The areas that our privately guided holidays to India explore are all very different. Whichever you choose, however, you will be overwhelmed by the glorious scenery and abundant and exotic wildlife, all the more so because this is all you need focus on – the local, English-speaking guide who accompanies you as you explore will act as your interpreter and show you the way. But, as impressive as the views and wildlife sightings may be, what previous customers tell us they treasure above all else is the hospitality – not just in the simple, village-run guesthouses, but from everyone encountered. Memorable holidays, crafted by Village Ways These holidays have been designed with Village Ways and take you to secluded villages which benefit directly from your stay. They do, however, bear many of the hallmarks of Inntravel holidays: you set the pace and get to see your chosen region up close; you can tailor your holiday, perhaps combining two areas or adding on a stay in Delhi or Mumbai for a more rounded Indian adventure; and we provide you with detailed information so that you know exactly what to expect as you travel within India and while you’re staying in the villages. All in all, we’ll help you to savour every moment of a holiday you are likely to remember for years to come.
