Always wanted to explore and experience the rich culture and heritage of India? The history, the food, the people, the traditions and languages always fascinated you? But always had unanswered questions in your mind and the fear of the unknown. What would be the accessibility at each place and whether the people would be welcoming enough. What if I don’t get the meals as per my diet or worse if the tour covers too much in too less time?
