    Family History Tours

    The 50 tour members who participated in one or more of the three trips to North, South and East India, all found them extremely satisfying.  They found it fascinating to walk through similar paths as their ancestors and to uncover information about their forebears – for example finding an entry for a family marriage in a parish register in Trichinopoly or being captivated that their ancestor’s grave was one of the larger tombs in the South Park Cemetery in Kolkata!

    Indus Experiences excel themselves making these family history tours run smoothly, enjoyable and rewarding by taking care of the details. Therefore we are planning more such trips over the next two years and expanding the areas visited by including Burma and Sri Lanka.

Some Testimonials from the past tours

April 2017
"Well what a trip and adventure we have had over the last three weeks on our heritage tour of India and Bangladesh, Yasin Zargar of Indus Experience has left no stone unturned in the planning and execution of this 22-day tour aided by Nicola Yeo of destination Lounge this has so far been (next to our honeymoon 30 years ago) our most memorable holiday.

I cannot ‘praise Yasin Zargar enough for the diligence and fine tuning of the holiday, right up to the last-minute changes were made to ensure that our trip went as smoothly as possible and was to our expectation, all our guides and drivers have been excellent especially as most of the sites we visited were not the usual holiday sightseeing.

Yasin was in constant touch with us when flights had been changed and to ensure we knew who to meet at the next stage of our holiday.

So, if you want just a relaxing holiday somewhere exotic or would like to plan a special tour then speak to Yasin Zargar of Indus Experience or if you are in the Southwest of England then I would strongly suggest that you make contact with Indus Experience through the Destination Lounge. It’s a holiday you will not regret but will be an experience of a lifetime"   India and Bangaladesh - Norman and Gwendoline Fergusan Rider

"A recent Family History Tours trip to south India provided the perfect context for me to follow in the footsteps of my Anglo-Indian ancestors, not least to visit the churches where some of them were baptized or married, or to see their graves. The tour covered towns and cities that were familiar as names, but to see them first-hand under FHT's guidance, and with the added pleasure of meeting local guides and historians was illuminating, and welcome. There was ample time and flexibility in the programme to appreciate local cultural highlights as well. Local transport and accommodation arrangements were excellent".      Andre

"Little did l know, when l started helping my Father many years ago on the quest of finding out our family tree at Somerset House in London, that one day l would be visiting his beloved India on a most wondrous trip.
I cannot praise Indus Experiences and Family History Tours enough - they made my whole experience so magical. No stone was unturned in helping me prepare for the journey of my dreams. Nothing was too much trouble for them, l appreciated that if at any time l had a query they were quick to respond. There was so much attention to detail. I loved the fact that each of our party had individual places of interest we wished to visit and they managed to fit them all in for us  - our private guides and drivers were pretty amazing too. We were treated like royalty from dining at the Chamber of Commerce in Kolkata and enjoying the luxury of the special Oberoi Grand Hotel, to experiencing the good life on a beautiful tea plantation at Sourenee, staying at a bijou tea planters hotel in Darjeeling and not forgetting the sunrise experience at Tiger Hill to see the Himalayan mountains in all their glory.
I just can't wait to book another voyage of discovery - it was all totally fabulous."     Greta

"We had a wonderful time and were pleased to have been part of the adventure."     Janet
