Our Luxury Jewish Heritage Tour of India invites you to explore the region’s rich Judaic roots, in past and present, in the vibrant cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata (aka Calcutta) and Kochi (aka Cochin). Tucked away within these four Jewish hubs are a collection of fascinating synagogues adnd Jewish Indian communities with whom you’ll have the opportunity to meet. It would be a crime to visit India without a visit to the Taj Mahal, so we’ve thrown that in too along with a stop in the colourful Rajasthani city of Jaipur. Accompanied by our expert guides, our Luxury Jewish Heritage Tour of India perfectly pairs the country’s “must-see’s” with its somewhat more hidden but fascinating Jewish religious and cultural sites, all whilst travelling at a pace in accordance with the Jewish faith (a day at leisure, or a walking tour, can be included on Shabbat, depending on your individual dates of travel).
This evening, end your journey on a cultural note by soaking up a traditional Kathakali performance. Literally meaning “story-play”, Kathakali is a highly evolved classical form of dance, drama and music that is almost 400 years old. Male actor-dancers, in voluminous colourful skirts, elaborate headdresses and jewellery, enact stories from the Puranas and the epics.
Optionally, you may like to extend your stay in Kerala to the beautiful backwaters with a two night cruise on the MV Oberoi Vrinda (in which case, we’d recommend taking a look at our Rajasthan with Kerala itinerary for inspiration), or take in the fabulous Himalayan foothills at the Oberoi Wildflower Hall in Shimla (here we have a fabulous Shimla extension itinerary). You could even visit the awe-inspiring Ajanta and Ellora Caves, or end with a few days on the beach in Goa, staying in a boutique hotel by the sea. If your schedule doesn’t allow for the full 15 nights, the third night in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata or Kochi can be comfortably removed, or an entire destination or two. All our tours are private and tailor-made to complement your tastes and interests, with every detail designed around you. Our Luxury Jewish Heritage Tour of India is really just a starting point and together we can refine it into your ideal India getaway.
We're open Monday to Friday 10:00 - 18:00. India is 5.5+ UTC.
