Discover the magic of India
Sightseeing with soul tour 2 – 18 November 2019

Saturday 2nd Nov 2019

More than a ‘sightseeing trip’ – This is sightseeing with soul. 
Be prepared to discover yourself as you journey with like-minded friends and let India work her magic!

Experience the incredible colour, culture, beauty, life and spiritual heart of India in a breath-taking visit to the palaces of the Raj and the forts of the mighty Mughul emporers, walk in awe around the sacred Golden Temple in Amritsar (the holiest centre for Sikhs) see the greatest monument to love ever built (the Taj Mahal) and pray and wonder at Varanasi (one of earth’s most sacred sites) as you float on the holy Ganges river.

Your 17 day tour will be accompnaied by a Qi yoga teacher to lead morning practice most days (when not travelling) and offer insights to the practice and history of yoga and spirituality during your tour as your experienced guides handle all the details to let you relax and soak up the magic. (Qi founder Mark O’Brien enjoyed this tour so much he’s asked them to run this just for Qi in 2019!)

A trip to India can be daunting, so let us handle the hassles as you explore in a small group (maximum 14 people) 
You’ll fully escorted by our dear friends Jane Kagan (Sydney) and Gopesh Bhatt (Jaipur.) Local guides join us in each city, sharing the highlights, hidden gems and intimate knowledge of their area, including where to find the best chai stalls! It’s the little things that count.

Jane has a deep connection with India and friendships spanning 30 years. You are in safe hands as you enjoy Indian warmth and hospitality in this up-close and personal tour. 
We’ll take you inside the heart of India, the people, their lives, homes, history, culture and philosophy. Journey with like-minded souls, and be prepared to discover yourself as India works its magic!

Just sit back and enjoy the journey; we got this!
