We started exploring India through our own interest…

then others wanted to come with us, to get their hands dirty just like I did…. and there you go… 16 years later we have now been leading tours to India and further afield for 14 years.

We are all about meeting the locals, getting our hands dirty, seeing life as it is lived and having a good meal and a good laugh along the way.

You are welcome to join us.
