India is a large, diverse country home to well over a billion people. Travelers are treated to rich culture and history ranging from the iconic Taj Mahal and ski town of Manali in the north, to the beaches in Gokarna and Virupaksha Temple in the south.
To truly see all this country has to offer, consider a group tour! Your itinerary, including accommodations, transportation and excursions, will be planned well in advance when you choose to experience India as part of a tour. This is important in a country with so much to offer travelers. India’s vast size and large population mean that public transportation is crowded and infrastructure is not always well-maintained. With an itinerary and efficient transportation planned ahead of time by a tour operator, you’ll see more of India’s highlights with fewer hiccups.
Group tours often pack itineraries full of activities, especially in countries with as many sights to see as India. Fewer hours of downtime may be a downside, depending on how you like to travel. No matter how long you have to spend exploring the country, a reputable tour company will have an itinerary that fits your schedule and interests. There is an India group tour for every type of traveler: solo, family, student, senior, foodie, adventurer, etc.
An experienced guide will also be able to help you navigate the fast-paced cities that surround many of India’s most iconic tourist destinations. Great guides not only use well-maintained accommodations and reliable transportation, they also educate their travelers on how to find good food, haggle while shopping, and otherwise enjoy the hustle and bustle of India safely.
Knowledgeable guides share India’s incredible history and culture with guests during visits to temples, statues, homestays, restaurants and more. Travelers who opt to navigate India on their own may find they can’t access the same sights available to tour groups led by local guides.
