Our most loved tour is back...with a twist!
Says Jodie Watkins (Australia):
"One of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. Our leaders Shila and Nirav were a font of knowledge and bent over backwards to make sure our trip was as stress free and enjoyable -- words cannot do justice. We visited villages that tourists rarely go and were welcomed into homes. The sights I have seen, the experiences I was honoured to have undertaken, will stay with me forever. The quality of the work we saw was exceptional. You will not regret it. Thank you Shila and Nirav.”
Patsy Anderson (Toronto):
"An exceptional tour . . . I was the clear textile rookie in the group and I learned so much. Superb tour leaders."
Explore the essence of Indian craftsmanship in a 5,000-year old culture.
What sets this tour apart? A double hit of unparalleled handmade textiles, arts and crafts AND stepwells: an architectural marvel unique to Gujarat-Rajasthan. Stepwells are ancient water-harvesting systems; elaborate feats of engineering and craftsmanship that echo the magnificence of Indian palaces . . . only they are underground. Read more here.
