15 Days - Tours for Solo Travellers

India is a vast country of contrasts waiting to be explored, from world-famous landmarks to wondrous hidden treasures.  Your visit will be a real feast for the senses as the vibrant colours, delicious flavours and heady scents combine to make a truly unforgettable holiday.  Specially tailored for people travelling alone, our tour starts in rural Rajasthan, where a potpourri of the ancient and the modern is so clearly exhibited.  The ‘Pink City’ of Jaipur is popular for to its wealth of palaces, fine examples of jaw-dropping architecture.  The natural world is also a major attraction and there will be the opportunity to spot tigers in their natural habitat in Ranthambore.  Of course, the highlight for many is the sublime Taj Mahal, a mausoleum so often seen in films and photographs, but there is simply no substitute for the feeling of seeing it first-hand.  We conclude our wonderful journey with a breathtaking train journey into the Himalayas and the hill station of Shimla.  A microcosm of Victorian English society during its colonial past, Shimla is the perfect way to conclude a visit to this amazing country.
