The ideal offer for travellers who would like to get to know and discover India on their own, but still feel very insecure at the beginning of their journey, do not really know where to go in India, have many questions and would like to have a knowledgeable guide at beginning of their journey in order to be introduced to India.
We offer you a one-week program to start your individual trip to India.
You will be welcomed at the airport and taken to the hotel. The next day you take your guide on a sightseeing tour of Delhi.
Then we go together to Rajasthan to the blue city of Jodhpur. Here we do some sightseeing, take part in a cooking class and explore the city on foot. Afterwards we head to the countryside for a camel safari with overnight stay in the open and into the yoga ashram.
Here we stay for two days not only to participate in the ashram everyday life, but also to discuss your further trip to India and give you tips and hints for the trip.
After this introductory week, you can either continue with your backpack completely independently and spontaneously, or you will continue with the pre-organized and planned individual trip from us.

In Rajasthan, the desert state, it is hot and dry almost all year round. Only the winter months from November to February are a little more pleasant. In any case, take a headgear with you to protect yourself from the strong sunlight.
Rajasthan attracts the most tourists, so tourism is the livelihood of many locals. Sometimes this can get uncomfortable. Especially in the big cities and tourist strongholds, people are under a lot of pressure to buy something. Often beggars or children come to ask for money, sweets or pens. Here, it should be well thought out who to give something to.
