Last year’s tour was so popular…we’re offering another chance to explore the magic of India with like-minded souls.
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 accompanied by a Qi yoga teacher to lead morning practice (when not travelling) and offer insights into 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 the organizers to run this just for Qi in 2020!)
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. Jane will help you with all your planning, packing lists, even flight recommendations and help with hotels if you want to arrive early or leave late.
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!
