Indian Excursions believe that luxury travel is about more than opulent hotels; it's about new experiences, stepping off the usual tourist circtuit in order to embrace something more rewarding.
We specialise in private tailor-made tours of Rajasthan (some might call us a 'boutique tour operator'), which are perfect for cultural journeys, honeymoons and wildlife adventure. We also craft tours throughout north India, and Kerala too.

MEET MADDIE & SHIV
Over the last five years, Indian Excursions have established ourselves as one of the leaders in luxury Rajasthan tours. Our guests are mostly private individuals, who have always dreamt of travelling to India but who realise the amount of planning required. They recognise that their time is their most precious asset and that they want to entrust it to experts with a well proven track record.
We're an intentionally small organisation. We send only a handful of guests a month on tour to Rajasthan. We have deliberately chosen to remain small so that we can look after our guests to the best of our ability and enjoy the process as we go along. Personal service is absolutely at the heart of what we do: Indian Excursions, which has grown a reputation for its attention to detail and friendly approach, just wouldn't be the same otherwise.
Why book with Indian Excursions:
Local knowledge and contacts: We are a team of knowledgeable and well-connected individuals who have lived and travelled extensively throughout Rajasthan and north India. We are based in Delhi.
First-hand experience: We personally visit all the hotels and locations we recommend and can provide you with first-hand information, photos and opinions on them.
Easy to reach: We personally answer all phone calls (during office working hours). You will never be answered by a machine or be frustrated by multiple options. All our clients also receive our personal mobile numbers which they are welcome to use outside working hours, due to the time difference between India and the UK / US / Australia / Europe.
Personal service: You will be looked after by one person - Maddie - from your initial enquiry until you land in India. You'll then be taken care of by Shiv, whose local knowledge and expertise on the ground is one of our strongest points.
Reliability: A large chunk of our business is from repeat clients and friends they have recommended to us.
We are truly passionate about and inspired by Rajasathan:This will become obvious as soon as you contact us!
Thank you for everything Madelaine and Shiv. We would unhesitatingly use Indian Excursions again and will wholeheartedly recommend you to any of our friends.
