Travel to India with A&K
Discover Authentic, Inspirational India
India is bigger than life: a population that exceeds a billion, 23 official languages and more than a million square miles of land. But one common thread runs through it - India floods your senses from every direction.
Anywhere you go, discover an energetic mélange of culture, aroma and flavor. Delhi is a city of fascinating contrasts, with remnants of the 12th to the 19th centuries lingering in Old Delhi and modern architecture and bustle in New Delhi. Agra is home to the majestic Taj Mahal and A&K arranges for you to view it at sunrise and sunset, when the colors reflecting on its surface are at their most brilliant. To the south, Udaipur sits serenely on the shores of Lake Pichola, where a private cruise offers postcard-worthy vistas at every turn. Stop to visit the Maharana's Crystal Gallery, opened expressly for you.
Mumbai, formerly known as the fabled Bombay, has a lovely harbor, marked by the Gateway of India, an 85-foot-high arch. Take a private boat ride from Mumbai Harbour to visit the rock-cut cave temples on Elephanta Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Back on land, glimpse everyday life at the Dhobi Ghat outdoor laundry and visit Mani Bhawan, a museum dedicated to the life of Mahatma Gandhi.
A&K even takes you inside the kaleidoscope of sights and sounds that is the spectacular Pushkar Fair, an annual camel and cattle sale attended by tribal villagers from all of Northern India. For more on where to go when and what to eat, see our tips for first–time travellers to India.
Exhilarating landscapes, the filigreed splendors of world-famous cities, and a unique spiritual heritage stretching back for millennia make India the perfect choice for an exotic, inspiring A&K journey.
