India

A holiday in India is not just a holiday - it memorises the senses with sights and sounds that become treasured memories for life… sunset at the Taj Mahal - gaze as the setting sun turns the Poem to Love a dusky pink; enjoy the Toy Train ride to Shimla... experience dawn on the Ganges as the mists swirl and the sonorous chants of Priests echo across the waters. Tigers in Ranthambore: Lions in Sassan Gir: Gangetic Dolphins on the Brahmaputra… memories are made of this! Let us design a bespoke tour and discover India your way.

Just setting back after another splendid Indus trip. Many thanks for your help with this and also to Yasin for his guidance and input. Tell him the Trout Kebabs were one of the highlights!! You were quite right there was no problems in Gulmarg or anywhere else, probably helped by a considerable army presence. Please also convey our thanks to Fouzia who kept in constant…
