A combination of what we do best, this 17 day tour blends opulent luxury with the best of Indian culture. Almost nowhere on earth has hotels as palatial and impressive as India, and the Taj Palace collection is as good as it gets. A selection of historical palaces that have been sensitively restored into one of a kind hotels, the Taj Palaces truly take the breath away and leave a lasting imprint on the soul.
Glamorous and beguiling, North India crackles with energy and colour. Nothing compares to the splendour and romance of Rajasthan, spilling over with ancient temples and Mughal monuments. You have vibrant and exciting cities like Mumbai, Delhi and Calcutta, blissfully cool tea plantations, the soaring Himalayas and some of the world’s most outstanding luxury hotels – from historic havelis to Royal Palaces.
Burma is a cultural gold mine: the Bagan plains are strewn with thousands of temple ruins stretching as far as the Irrawaddy River; Mandalay and Yangon are heaving with colonial buildings and glittering stupas; Inle Lake is a place...
With more than 17,000 islands, it can be hard knowing where to head...
Asia, Tailor-made . . .
'Luxury is in the experience'
We love luxury and style at Ampersand Travel, but we also love to engage with our destination. If that means the odd bumpy road or eccentric hotel in order to see something truly special, that's fine by us. Most of our clients agree (they know that luxury isn't far away, after all), and for those that don't, we are happy to arrange super-luxe holidays from start to finish.

At Ampersand we believe that “luxury is in the experience”. We love travelling in style but are not afraid to step off the usual circuit in order to experience something more rewarding. We specialise in exclusive tailor-made holidays that are perfect for honeymoons, cultural tours, family trips, wildlife adventures, sabbaticals and multi-generational holidays.
Over the last 10 years we have established ourselves as a leader in luxury holidays to the Indian subcontinent, South East Asia and the Far East. In keeping with our desire to share the places we know and love best, we are thrilled to add the UK to our portfolio of destinations.
Our clients are mostly private individuals who recognise that time is their most precious asset and want to entrust it to experts with a well proven track record. This smoothes out the planning process and ensures that they have the most rewarding and memorable experience possible. We also look after some of the world’s most acclaimed museums and organisations who rely on us to arrange once-in-a-lifetime group tours for their most important patrons.
Why book with us:
Local knowledge & contacts: We are a team of knowledgeable and well-connected individuals who have lived and /or travelled extensively in the destinations we offer.
First-hand experience: We personally visit all the hotels and locations we recommend and can provide you with first-hand information 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.
Financial protection: Ampersand Travel is ATOL bonded meaning that the money spent on your holiday is protected.
Personal service: You will be looked after by one consultant from your initial enquiry until your safe return home from holiday.
Reliability: 80% of our business is from repeat clients and friends they have recommended to us.
Small by choice: We send up to 500 clients a year on holiday. We have deliberately chosen to remain small so that we can look after our clients to the best of our ability and enjoy the process as we go along.
Totally independent: We only sell places we love. Unless we would be happy to stay there we will not sell it – it’s as simple as that.
Owner run: Ampersand is owner run and, interestingly, most of our carefully selected ground handlers are too. We feel that this creates a far more passionate and personal service and a greater sense of accountability, which are key to providing the best possible service.
We love travel: This will become obvious as soon as you contact us!
