Tours Tailored For YOU in Groups of Any Size

We love to help travelers get to know India. With it's vibrant colors, beautiful people and astonishing sites!

No matter the size of your group, we will create an experience of a lifetime to incredible places: ranging from the Taj Mahal to off-the-beaten-track ancient Jewish sites that are very difficult to visit on your own. Of course, we always make sure to reflect your own interests, as well as the diversity of India. Iris and Howard are very experienced, having visited many times. We have created unforgettable experiences for so many people, let us do the same for you! 

 

Every trip is tailored to your individual needs and interests. Don't let anything get in your way...we can even arrange for special transportation, like a tuk-tuk (auto rickshaw) or elephant. And if you don't like spicy food, we can help you with that too.

Whether you need ideas, information, implementation or general cheerleading...we do it all!

 

The best way to decide what’s right for you is to read through our website, especially the Sample Itinerary and Your Experience sections.

Sometimes you just want to travel on your own, or just want to be with a few special friends or family members. We can design an itinerary, dates, and price that exactly meet your needs.

Look at our 3000 Years of Jewish India sample itinerary and tell us what you like most about it, what you would add or delete. India is so fascinating and varied, the possibilities are endless.

 

Whenever possible we use 5-star iconic luxury hotels, we know well and really like. Occasionally we can suggest hotels that supersede even these in luxury. It all depends on the size of your budget.

No matter your travel style, together we decide on the best hotels, meals, guides/escorts and transportation within India.

If you would like help with your international flights, we can do that too.

Synagogue travel is a wonderful way to bond with others in your synagogue community. Most importantly, it is an unrivaled way of enhancing understanding of the Jewish people and their history.

​​

If your synagogue community is adventuresome (we suspect you are or you wouldn’t be reading about India), and has already traveled to destinations like Israel and Europe, talk with us about India. It was India that helped us embrace the thousands of years of connections between Israel and the Jews of the early diasporas. To get an idea about where your congregation might go, look at our India 2019 Tour on this website. We have been organizing this tour and refining it for many years.

We will work with you to design something equally exciting – with a length, itinerary, and price that fits your synagogue community and its culture.
