Treat your senses on this Northern India family holiday
Take a moment to imagine India. If you pictured a land bursting with colour, thronging with people and heady with spices and incense, you’d be right. On this trip your family be diving headfirst into India’s heart and experiencing the genuineness of its people, the weight of its history and the incredible diversity across the country. Travel from cities packed with impressive monuments to the welcoming and simple surrounds of rural villages and the wildlife-filled countryside beyond. Hop aboard the moving town that is an Indian train and watch the colourful landscape fly by as the chai wallah walks down the aisle singing about his tea. Go beyond the curries and chow down on street-food specialties, savoury chaats and samosas and enjoy watching your family learn, laugh and live this India adventure.

We travel by train between Delhi and Agra. The carriages are fitted with windows, comfortable seats, bathrooms and air-conditioning.
We visit a number of temples on this trip, which requires a certain level of modesty. Please bring clothes that cover the arms and pants/skirts that go past the knees. A light scarf is also a good idea for covering shoulders and arms when it’s hot.

TAJ MAHAL: Using mud pack therapy the Archaeological Survey of India is planning to clean the four small canopies around the main dome of the Taj Mahal from the start of April 2018. This will be followed by the cleaning of the main dome but that could take some time as ASI is yet to calculate its load bearing capacity. The ASI’s science branch officials have stated that cleaning the four canopies will take approximately 2 months while main dome cleaning will be completed in phases. We will continue to update as information becomes available.

I had a great time on this trip. It was a real adventure, but also it was very well organised and we felt safe and well looked after. I would recommend this trip for parents with children looking for an adventure and a cultural experience.

The family tours are great for kids and parents alike, as the children inevitably bond with the other children and have an amazing experience with each other, as well as seeing new sights and experiencing a new culture.
