What's an India Tour?
India tours are prepackaged trips with a set itinerary and dedicated tour manager. Many people who want to take an India vacation want to avoid all the planning and logistics involved in a big week or two week foreign trip abroad and are looking to save money by doing it all in a package instead of piecing things together at full price. The trip is led by a tour director who will take care of all the services from beginning to the end of your vacation. Your tour director connects you with local tour guides who will have a lot of knowledge on the specific cities you explore. Typically, hotels, transportation throughout your trip, some meals and sightseeing are arranged and included with the price of your India tour.
Exotic and spiritual, India is a vast country - from the Himalayas in the north to the coastal south, from humid deltas in the east to deserts in the west. India tours for international visitors typically include overnights in the popular "Golden Triangle": Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. Besides the "Golden Triangle" trilogy of cities, some India tours bring visitors to Varanasi, the holiest of Hindu pilgrim cities. Here devout Hindus meet in the mornings for ritual bathing. One more popular destination in India for international visitors: Udaipur, the "City of Lakes," with its massive granite and marble City Palace, comprised of courtyards, pavilions, terraces, and narrow corridors.
What's Included on an India Tour?
Generally, an India tour will include as many services as possible, giving you less to worry about. Usually included on your India tour are: transportation (getting from place to place while on tour), accommodations, most meals, and the services of a dedicated tour director. As per the itinerary, certain sightseeing opportunities are also included: tickets to special VIP access to the most famous landmarks, skip the lines, and when available, access to a personal local guide for expert commentary.
It is rare for anyone to travel overseas for an India vacation and not visit the phenomenal, majestic Taj Mahal in Agra. This marvelous mausoleum was built by Shah Jahan as a monument of love for his wife who died in childbirth in 1631. Nearby is the Red Fort, another major attraction whose massive red sandstone walls rise more than 60 feet in height.
