We love timing our tours and travel with local events and festivals, it adds a special element to the itinerary and of course gives you a bag full of fond memories.

For solo travellers - females in particular, joining a group tour that includes a festival visit in the itinerary, offers a safe way to see and do more during your travels without having to worry so much about your personal safety at big crowded events.

As we are still growing our scheduled festival tour departures are still small and infrequent - but please enquire and let us know that you are interested so we can help make it happen.

India is the land of festivals and generally no matter which month or where you are travelling, we can incorporate attendance to a local festival in your itinerary.

If you are planning your travels now, try coordinating your holidays around these times for these big festival favourites:

  • Rann Utsav festival (Dec - Jan)
  • Sufi Music festival (Feb)
  • Holi - festival of colour (March)
  • Flamenco & Gypsy festival (April)
  • Ganesh festival (Aug/Sept)
