More Information

We start our journey in vibrant Delhi with a sightseeing tour to explore the rich cultural heritage of this great city. We then travel west to Jaipur - often described as the Pink City of India, boasting of its magnificent past, robust tradition, and above all, the architectural elegance and splendour of its glittering palaces.

A highlight of the trip is our sunrise visit to Taj Mahal where we see the pale marble change hue in spectacular fashion as the light changes with the movement of the sun. Moving to the next destination-Gwalior where the fort and its premises are well maintained and house many historic monuments including palaces, temples and water tanks. Route between Gwalior and Khajuraho allows us to visit small but important cities from historical point of view such as Orchha. The erotic and other carvings that swathe Khajuraho’s two groups of World Heritage–listed temples are among the finest temple art in the world. Then, travel to Varanasi where fascinating Hindu bathing Ghats along the Holy Ganges beckons us. From here we head north to cross the border into Nepal for visits to Buddha’s birthplace and further to Chitwan National Park, famous for its population of Indian one-horned rhinoceros. A thrilling safari practically guarantees our close encounter with the rhinos. Finally we reach Kathmandu, a valley on the threshold of the high Himalayan peaks. The city of Kathmandu is a great place to explore historic sites, ancient temples and shrines of both Buddhist and Hindu religions providing a fitting finale to a memorable tour.

5 Stars

This was an Exceptional holiday, that exceeded my expectations. The tour Guides were fantastic, nothing was to much trouble for them, they made this trip special.

After many years of wanting to visit India, Active India was recommended by some friends who had made a similar trip last year. From the outset this company was excellent from the planning and fine tuning of our special holiday right through the trip until its conclusion. Drivers and guides were excellent and hotels were as we had booked- some good 3 stars and some beautiful havelis and 4 stars. The company even had a whatsapp group set up to provide instant help with anything that came up. We travelled through Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Kerala. It was a fascinating and richly cultural experience. Active India is an excellent company which has been in existence for 20 years and we would highly recommend them.

This is the second trip we’ve done through Active India and with good reason. They are very flexible and responsive tailoring our trip specifically following my requests in advance but adding their suggestions advice and expertise of the areas we visited. All team members from all offices checked ahead to ensure everything went smoothly and were on hand if it didn’t (which was rare). They even set up a WhatsApp group so I had confidence and contact should I need it at all times. Everyone from the managing director down cared that we had the best time smoothly run to itinerary and that really matters. It’s what sets them ahead of other tour companies. Highly recommend as I have utmost trust and faith in this company following 2 successful wonderful trips to 2 completely different areas in amazing India. So it’s thank you to Ravi Tickoos Heena and all the team but for me it’s a special thanks to Priya who always goes above and beyond.
