Your Holiday to India

Your Holiday To India

Whether visiting India for the first time or a returning traveller to the subcontinent, our tailor-made holidays allow you to explore every inch of the country. Pettitts Travel have been organising private bespoke tours to India since 1988 and we have a deep knowledge and love for the people and the country. Every itinerary is based around your specific requirements and is tailored to be unique to you thereby providing a completely personal experience. Hotels and transport, guides, sightseeing and entrance fees are all included unless otherwise stated. Although dependent on where you are travelling in India, in most cases you will have a private car and driver at your disposal throughout and local guides or naturalists where appropriate. There are Pettitts Travel offices in both the Indian capital Delhi and the Keralan city of Kochi which, in addition to our UK operation, provide round the clock support and assistance.

Although all of our arrangements are tailor-made, many clients find inspiration from the itineraries on our website and then adapt them to fit their requirements – adding or removing days, including different cities and regions or making adjustments to the accommodation. The Golden Triangle and Beyond is ideal for the first time visitor to India whilst Historic Rajasthan and Highlights of Gujarat explore the region in greater depth. Foothills of the Himalayas combines the Golden Temple of Amritsar with the hill station of Shimla and for the more adventurous Crossing the Zanskar follows the epic overland route to Ladakh. Classical India highlights the best of Central India’s historic sites and Land of the Tiger the region’s finest wildlife reserves. Spices and Sandalwood and Rural Images of Kerala offer two different routes through Kerala whilst Journey through Southern India combines the state with neighbouring Tamil Nadu and Karnataka’s Hidden Treasures includes Hampi. Classic routes in eastern India include Return to Darjeeling and Sikkim, Journey through Assam and Cruising the Upper Brahmaputra. For those looking to travel off the beaten track, Nagaland and the Hornbill Festival, Eastern India and the Tribes of Orissa and Kolkata and the Historic Trading Centres of East India offer something a little different.

Festivals In India

Festivals In India

Colourful and vibrant, the festivals of India are rightly famous. One of the joys of travelling in India is the discovery of a celebration – a village wedding perhaps, complete with fireworks and loud Bollywood music, or a religious observance in honour of a local deity. India’s vast size, its cultural heritage and strong regional identities all play their part in making these festivals what they are today. The majority of celebrations in India are centred on religion – three of the most famous which can be incorporated into a holiday are Holi, the ‘festival of colours’, held during March, Diwali the ‘festival of lights’ which takes places between October and November and signifies the triumph of good over evil, and Dussehra which is fervently celebrated in northern India. The most popular regional celebrations include December’s Hornbill Festival, an important cultural event that showcases Nagaland’s traditions and heritage, Gujarat’s fabulous International Kite Festival held annually in January and the Nehru Trophy Boat Race in Kerala where each August huge snake boats are raced in front of enormous crowds.

Wildlife In India

India is synonymous with wildlife. Known the world over as home to the majestic tiger, India is blessed with an extraordinary diversity of animal life and a plethora of national parks and protected areas. India’s vast size, its remoteness and an increasing focus on conservation has had a positive impact on wildlife numbers and the country is the home of a large number of rare or endangered species including tiger, leopard and Asiatic lion, one-horned rhinoceros and elephant. National parks and reserves are found throughout the country, from high mountain and desert to tropical jungle and forest and it is this range of habitats that supports such a wide variety of mammal, reptile, amphibious and bird life. Northern and central India and the reserves of Corbett, Ranthambore, Kanha, Pench and Bandhavgarh are famed the world over for their tiger populations. Gujarat’s Sasan Gir supports the rare Asiatic lion and Kaziranga, in North East India, the majestic one-horned rhinoceros. The North East national parks of Kaziranga, Dibru-Saikhowa and Nameri also offer fine birdwatching.
