If you are ready to start planning you next holiday, our 'Book with Confidence' pledge has been created to give you peace of mind. For new bookings made before 30 June 2021, we will not charge if you need to move your holiday dates or change to a new destination due to Covid-19, up to 60 days prior to travel. You can move your holiday to any time up to 31 December 2022 or 12 months from your departure date, whichever is later*. If you are unsure of your future travel plans when you need to make this change, we will provide you with a 100% travel credit note.
* Terms and conditions
We may need to adjust the cost of your trip to reflect any seasonal differences. Sometimes non-refundable deposits are required by local suppliers, which would be specified prior to booking. If you are unable to travel, we would secure a credit note for future travel from these suppliers, but you would not get a cash refund for these items. Flights that have already been issues will be subject to the rules of your airline & therefore may not be refundable or changeable. All other terms and conditions remain as standard.

India and Sri Lanka Holidays

Indian Sub-Continent: India and Sri Lanka

Incredible India offers an extraordinary cultural experience, with a rich and ancient history dating back millennia. Boasting over 30 World Heritage Sites, it has many iconic buildings such as the breathtakingly beautiful Taj Mahal. It has numerous Hindu temples, and many incredible forts and palaces from the Maharaja era - most notably in the ‘Golden Triangle’ region of Rajasthan, best explored on a private tour travelling with your own driver/guide. Luxury train travel is also popular, as this allows you to journey back in time to the opulence of a royal yesteryear. Alternatively a trip on one of the open-sided narrow gauge ‘Toy Trains’, built in colonial times, is an unforgettable cultural experience.
Comprises 29 different states and 7 union territories, with over 20 official languages between them, India is very diverse - with each state having its own distinctive culture, saris and curries. The laid-back southern state of Kerala, for example, is know for its traditional houseboats found on its extensive system of ‘backwaters’ (lakes), as well as for yoga and Ayurvedic wellness treatments. Amritsar is the home of the remarkable Golden Temple, Shimla is a beautiful hill station in the Himalayas and Darjeeling is known for its tea plantations and monasteries. The small state of Goa is renowned for its wonderful beaches. Vivid and exuberant festivals, such as Holi and Diwali, are a way of life in India, which is also the land of Royal Bengal tigers, Asian elephants and Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book. This rapidly developing country has many different facets, colours and landscapes that cannot be covered in a single trip, so it’s best to concentrate on one region at a time – then return for another visit.
Sri Lanka by contrast is a predominantly Buddhist country, with some of the best preserved ancient Buddhist statues and shrines in the world, including the astonishing Dambulla Cave Temple, the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy, ancient Po?onnaruwa and Anuradhapura. It is an important tea producer and has many magnificent Indian Ocean beaches, as well as historic Galle Fort. For nature lovers, Sri Lanka has excellent birding, and Yala and Udawalawe National Parks are some of the best place on the Indian sub-continent to see leopards and Asian elephants in the wild.
Nepal is an important trekking destination, as it is the gateway to the beautiful Annapurna Trail and mighty Mount Everest, whilst peaceful Bhutan has remote Buddhist monasteries and soaring Himalayan peak to explore.
Travelling with your own driver & guide is one of the best ways of exploring the Indian subcontinent, as this allows you to relax and enjoy the experience, whilst your driver takes care of all the small details. Bottled water is provided on your tour and rest assured you will stay at excellent hotels with normal western facilities.
