All of us here have two things in common. We love travel, and we are passionately in love with India. We make sure that when you leave our shores after your holiday, you will be in love too, with this ancient, vibrant, majestic and magical land that we inhabit and its people.
We do it the old fashioned way.
When you write to us for the first time, we send you a questionnaire to help us understand who you are. Just to give you an example, we can point you towards Mahabalipuram if bas relief sculpture is your thing or gently nudge you away from some of the more boisterous Indian festivals if you are the kind that is uncomfortable with crowds.
In other words, we work with you to give you the kind of holiday you will most cherish. India has something for everyone as long as they know where to look. That's where we come in. We use our expertise to help the right traveller find the right destination.
This expertise comes from first hand experience. All our specialists have travelled and continue to travel extensively in their beats, constantly updating their bank of information.
India is a very large, disparate country. It is possible to experiences wildly different service standards as you travel from one region to another. To minimize that, we ensure all our partners are handpicked. Be it luxury hotels or airlines, trained guides, English speaking chauffeurs or camel drivers, Explore India only entrusts its guests to people it has had years of association and personal experience with. Still, performances are reviewed repeatedly to ensure they are at the top of their game.
We believe God lies in the details. You will always find reading material to your taste on a Explore India tour. Every morning, the car at your doorstep will be freshly washed, even in the middle of the Thar Desert. During long drives, there will always be complimentary mineral water and tissues close at hand. If you take a rest stop, you will come back to the car to find them replenished.
We understand that while you wish to be alone, you do not want to feel isolated. Which is why, the moment you land in India, we hand you a mobile phone, yours for the length of your stay. The phone will have all the emergency numbers fed in, including those of senior IVAT staff. We are quite sure you will never need to use the phone. But if you do, call us any time of the day or night. You will always find a friend at the other end.
Speaking of friends, we have made some lifelong ones. A large part of our business comes from returning guests and their friends. That is the best certificate us travel specialists can hope for.
Do go through our tour templates and drop us a line. A dedicated specialist will be in touch immediately and work with you to create a bespoke holiday, uniquely suited to your interests, tastes and preferences. You'll find it an unforgettable experience. Even before you set foot in India.
