India Group Tours for Solo Travellers
Travel solo as part of a group tour to India
why travel solo to india?
Ancient spirituality, urban vibrancy and an eye to the future combine to tantalising effect in India.
On a group trip with other like-minded solo travellers in India, you’re in for a rich sensory experience. Whether you’re weaving through the rickshaws of Delhi, navigating the back alleys of Jaipur or drifting through the backwaters and beaches of Kerala, you’ll find moments of beauty at every corner.
Ancient traditions are the lifeblood of Indian culture. The birthplace of Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism, this is a country that exudes transcendental spirituality, evident in everything from architecture to everyday beliefs and locals threading marigolds outside temples as offerings.
The north is home to India’s most iconic (and chaotic) cities. Yet travel south to Kerala, and you’ll find yourself in another, more-tranquil world altogether. One of lush coconut groves and inviting beaches, with fragrant gently-spiced curries never far out of reach.
Top places to visit in India
This state on India’s tropical Malabar Coast is a beach lover’s dream with nearly 600km of Arabian Sea shoreline. Inshore from its palm-lined beaches you’ll find vast tea, coffee and spice plantations on the slopes of the Western Ghats, and backwaters to explore by boat.
The Taj Mahal may be Agra’s biggest tourist draw, but it’s not its only attraction. The Mughal empire has left its rich history within the city through a grand fort that overlooks the banks of the Yamuna River, as well as tombs and mausoleums.
Embrace the chaos of Delhi to truly make the most of a trip here. A wander around the city will have you weaving around tuk-tuks, spice stalls and strings of macaques silhouetted over rooftops, via haggling merchants and textile shops. Take in the local street food on a tour or turn to the temples to dial down the pace.
The capital of Rajasthan displays its royal history through opulent palaces and erstwhile aristocratic homes, many now converted into character-filled boutique hotels. At the centre sits the grand City Palace complex with an old town encircled by rose-toned walls that give “The Pink City” its name.
