destination: india - eternal romance
WHY SHOULD YOU GO?
Home to the ancient Indus Valley Civilization and a region of historic trade routes and vast empires, the Indian subcontinent was identified with its commercial and cultural wealth for much of its long history. Four of the world’s major religions—Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism—originated here, and the art, architecture and sights continue to beckon travelers from all over the world. Today India is also the most populous democracy in the world and a leader in technology development. It offers remarkable perspectives on where the modern world intersects with life as it has been lived for centuries.
Sample a connoisseur’s collection of visual and performing arts with behind the scenes access to artists at work and private art collections. The sights, the temples, the bazaars, the spirituality, the complex history and mixed cultures make this tour a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I have worked closely with our travel partner to design an engaging and unique experience.
