India Tour Ideas

Hearing the word India it is hard not to imagine a developing world and the worn anecdotes that goes with it. Your first impressions will only strengthen that notion. But look further. It's only when you reach the end of an India tour that you appreciate that there's so much more than what meets the eye. It's a nation that's struggling to shake off an age old identity in order to transform, yet all the while it's trying to retain the values from its past. And that's absolutely fascinating. It creates a country of diversity in every form and every sense of the word.
