India with children? Oh yes, if you plan the trip correctly, a stay in India for the whole family can be fun!
The Indians are a very child-loving people and with some skillful planning, the travel routes will be short, the individual destinations safe and the activities for all family members interesting and fun. At the same time, it is possible to establish close contact with the locals and to get a deep insight into the culture and the country.
This fortnightly trip has been designed to include India’s most beautiful destinations, many child-friendly activities and to make the trip relatively short and that you can experience India in an authentic way. The Trip goes from the Himalayas, to Agra with the Taj Mahal, further to the Rajasthan desert with camel safari, castles, markets and a cooking class. The last station is the southern palm state of Kerala. From a yoga resort located directly at the sea, daily excursions in the surrounding area are organised.
So the journey will be a great experience without being exhausting! In the case of destinations and accommodation, special attention was paid to hygiene and food. So there are always alternatives to the maybe too exotic Indian food.
Wherever you are, there is always an English-speaking contact person on site.
