For those who wish to get the most out of their Indian experience we recommend an itinerary that includes an accompanying tour guide.
Your tour guide will stay with you throughout your tour whether you are travelling by vehicle, train or plane. This assists with a smooth journey, allowing your guide to learn your preferences and to anticipate your needs, delivering a more personalised experience.
All our guides are degree qualified, some holding post-graduate qualifications. They have extensive knowledge of Indian history and culture. So if you are interested in knowledge such as marriage customs, religion, history or current affairs, your guide will enjoy discussing this with you.
How much interaction you have with your guide is up to you. Some of our clients like to have the guide available to assist at check in and during sightseeing, but then prefer to spend time by themselves exploring. Other clients appreciate having someone with them to help with local interactions such as shopping or in restaurants.
For us your safety and enjoyment is paramount. We will advise you where there may be security issues and will share with you our favourite shops, cafes and restaurants.
A tour guide will travel and accompany the guests throughout the tour. A tour guide in India must have a valid guiding license from the Government of India, where they have to compete an exam and undergo 6 months theoretical and practical training.
An accompanying tour guide or escort will assist you with check-in / check-out at the hotels, as well as guide you through and explain the history of monuments, places, culture, traditions and customs of the Indian people. A tour guide will be at your disposal throughout the tour. The tour guide's fee will always include costs for their accommodation and food.
