Highlights

Experience old and new India in the bustling streets of Delhi, where ancient temples stand against billboards advertising Bollywood films.

Explore the beautiful south of India, getting elbows-deep in authentic southern Indian cuisine.

A homestay with a local family is a special experience, especially in the serene backwaters of Kerala.
