Indian Excursions Co was founded in 2009, by Shiv Gurjar and Madeleine Hann. Together, they make the perfect team, specialising in private and utterly luxurious tours of Rajasthan. With a reputation for excellence and fine attention to detail, they’ll bend over backwards to ensure your tailor-made journey is nothing short of spectacular.
Personal service really is at the heart of what we do. When we say tailor-made, we really mean it; there’s no limit on the amount of time we’ll spend refining your itinerary with you until you’re absolutely satisfied, and we welcome you to ask for any number of tweaks and adjustments. No request is too big or too small and we strive to create a truly personalised experience.
I take care of our guests before they arrive in India. I'm our Tour Designer and it's my job to create your itinerary. I'm there every step of the way, to ensure that your trip to India runs smoothly.
I'm in charge of operations, so I take care of you when you arrive in India. It's me who does a lot of the behind-the-scenes tasks, such as communicating with drivers and guides.
Specialising in private, luxury tailor-made tours of Rajasthan, we regularly test first-hand all the routes, hotels and experiences we recommend, to ensure every moment of our itineraries are as close to perfection as possible.
With almost a decade of experience and many more in the industry, we understand that each of our guests are unique, with their own tastes and interests – what works for one person isn’t always the best for another. We are passionate about getting to know each of our customers, to really gain an understanding of their likes and dislikes and so to match them with the perfect combination of experiences and hotels. We believe that luxury travel is about more than opulent hotels; it’s about new experiences, stepping off the usual tourist circuit in order to embrace something more rewarding. From steering off the beaten the beaten track in the countryside, to experiencing a the festival of Diwali with a local family, we can help you really embrace the rich culture of Rajasthan, revealing its beauty and many of its hidden gems in unforgettable ways.
We’re based in the capital city of New Delhi and have additional offices through Rajasthan and north India.
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. For us, Indian Excursions just wouldn’t be the same otherwise.
