If there is one place on the face of earth where all the dreams of living people have found a home, it is India.— Romain Rolland
India for Beginners custom tours are for people who are flexible and willing to adjust – people who understand that things do not always go as planned in India. There is a certain amount of trust involved in travel in India: trust that the “right thing” will happen, even if it’s not the “planned thing.”
India is a very special place – however, it is not always an easy or a comfortable place. To enjoy the experience of travel in India, you have to adjust your expectations. Things do NOT go as smoothly or efficiently as they do may do in your own home country, for example. The more flexible you can be, the better. “Go with the flow” is the best attitude you can have.
It’s also important to leave pre-conceived ideas about India at home. India is an extremely diverse country – and for almost every statement you can make about it, the opposite is also true. “All life is here,” as the saying goes.
Put the “I” in India
India for Beginners custom tours are for travellers visiting India for the first time … and also for anyone willing to travel in India with a “beginner’s mind” – an open attitude that allows you to see everything as if for the first time.
India for Beginners custom tours are not for everyone. But for those who want to experience the magic of India, we encourage you to take the leap …
