Enhance Your India Experience
We boast a wide selection of optional activities and sightseeing excursions that complement your tour and will provide the finishing touches to your perfect holiday. In Delhi, visit a family and learn about local Indian cuisine, culture and
way of life by interacting with the family and sharing dinner. Old Delhi with a difference: take an early morning cycling tour. Ring your bell as you navigate the streets amongst cows and rickshaws. The smile on the faces of the locals
on seeing a tourist on a bike in the narrow lanes of Delhi is priceless. Dance is an important part of India's culture. We give you the opportunity to attend several dance shows in Delhi such as the spectacular Zangoora show but also in Agra, Khajuraho, Cochin or Kathmandu. In Rajasthan, why not indulge in a romantic candle lit dinner in Samode Haveli in Jaipur or at the Sunset Terrace, overlooking the beautiful Lake Pichola in Udaipur.
