Journey to the Heart of India

8 days from £3,015 per person

For those who say they want to see the “realIndia, look no further. This journey to the heart of India is a true journey of the senses, made even better as this is one of those incredible places that few people have heard about. Visit a completely different India to the one that most people know and explore a history going back thousands of years.

This atmospheric 
itinerary takes you off the beaten track to reveal India at its most beautiful and unspoilt; best of all, you will be able to escape the crowds and enjoy these glorious sites all to yourself. The Ajanta Caves and Ellora Temples will take your breath away, as will the serendipitous encounters with locals you will undoubtedly have - with people of all backgrounds who will touch your soul with their genuine warmth and kindness.

End the journey with four glorious days at Ahilya Fort on the banks of the sacred Narmada river. 
It is a world to itself which captures the essence of India – better in our eyes than 1000 Taj Mahals.

Ampersand Travel arranged this trip for journalist Jessamy Calkin, writing for the Telegraph - Click here to view article.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
