Tour groups have become highly popularized, as they allow people to travel the world without having to take on all the responsibility and stress of organizing each step of the trip.

Travellers can make one lump sum payment for accommodations, many meals, in-country transportation, and entries to museums and other attractions, instead of having to dole out a payment for each new reservation. For many reasons, one very popular place to travel is India. India tours are so much more than just a trip, they provide a fulfilling experience for travellers from around the world.

1. Awe-inspiring sites

An India tour will ensure that its travellers get to see the most famous and jaw-dropping sites India has to offer – and there are many. Of the most famous and most popularly visited are the Taj Mahal, Jaipur’s Amber fort, among many other famous forts in India, as well as many beautiful palaces. A pre-planned India tour will often visit the most sought after locations, but these tours can often be customized if travellers prefer something a little more off the beaten path.

2. Fun-filled festivals

If travellers plan their trips at the right time, they may be able to hit one of India’s many colourful and fun festivals like the Diwali festival in October, or the Holi festival in March. These tours will only run once a year, as they have to meet up with the festival dates, but travellers will surely have an experience to remember if they have the opportunity to partake in one. It is well worth it to choose one of the India tours that offer a festival experience, as the festivals are unique in so many ways.

3. Delicious food

Joining an India tour also means there will be plenty of opportunity to taste test the delicious Indian cuisine. Even better, the restaurants the tour will stop at are tried and true, and are sure to be tasty. Indian food contains many flavourful spices and curries, which creates aromatic and tasty dishes. On an India tour, many of the meals will be covered, so while travellers may have to go it on their own a couple of times throughout the trip, there will be many times where they will be guided to great restaurants and won’t have to worry about the bill.

4. Fascinating history

India tours also allow travellers ample opportunity to learn about the rich history in India. As an example, Old Delhi was founded as a city in 1639. It is a very common location for tours to visit, as the location offers hundreds of years of Indian history. In addition, the forts and other sites are also historical, and add many interesting elements to any trip, complementing the beauty of the country and all the things travellers will get to see along the way.

5. See more of India

India is a huge country, it is impossible to see it all in one go, for sure. However, India tours allow travellers to hit the highlights, often through one particular area – either the North or the South – in order to maximize their experience. With India tours, no time is wasted on any leg of the trip. It is efficient and well planned out, allowing for more time sight-seeing. A trip to India would be beautiful and incredible no matter what, that almost goes without saying. However, with a tour, the trip will be enhanced. As well, the skilled tour guides will be able to provide more information than one could learn during a trip on their own, and the guides follow the group, so there is consistency and rapport.
