India

There\'s perfume burning in the air, and bits of beauty everywhere (Leonard Cohen)

A journey through India will change the way you view the World on so many levels. Mark Twain wrote of India, “So far as I am able to judge, nothing has been left undone, either by man or nature, to make India the most extraordinary country that the sun visits on his rounds.” You may stay in the palaces of Maharajas and Mughals, modern hotels, authentic Colonial and art deco hotels, and wonderful boutique properties full of charm and subtlety. Our journeys are designed to offer you an unforgettably wonderful holiday.
