The very essence of Indian Experiences is to help travel companies to showcase the real India, to seek out and share the very spirit of the country to their clients, though its authentic experiences, less well-known destinations and people encounters. We believe in empowering women and rural populations and work alongside niche and regional specialists who have the same ethos. Since 1998 we have been seeking out those people for whom people matter, and actively promote individuals and small companies who are specialists in their field and who all believe in sustainable tourism. This is vital. Only this way, can we bring you authentic, sustainable travel experiences and help you to create truly unique and memorable itineraries for your clients, ensuring that they will want to return time and again.

We commissioned Philippa to research and develop our new India offering and gave her a brief to come up with the very best India had to offer in experiential travel. She pulled in her formidable contacts and utilized all of her very extensive knowledge and freely and openly put it all at our disposal. Her passion and enthusiasm for the country was deeply infectious and we were delighted with the results and our India programme has gone from strength to strength – in no small part due to her fantastic work in building the foundations.

What is your dream in India? Is to stay in somewhere fabulous and five star, or in a village home in a remote region of the countryside and truly understand what live in the heart of the country is like? Would you like to stay at a luxury tented camp with rescued elephants or in a chic boutique stay in a tea plantation? Is staying in a plantation home and learning about coffee and the life of planters something that appeals to you or discovering temples and wildlife in an area just a short drive from the Taj Mahal but a million miles away from the bustle of that city? Our preferred hotels are a selection of experiences and that is what they all have in common. They are not all luxurious, they vary from the very basic to the ultra-luxurious but what they all have in common, is their passion of the hosts in ensuring that your stay encompasses some truly wonderful Indian Experiences.
