India – Ancient civilizations, food and color (8-19 October 2021)

6 min read

Travel with me in India to discover its culture, food and spices, while we visit not to be missed places, but also less touristic ones. The trip is designed so that you will fully experience India.

Since I love food, we have added culinary experiences as well that will create new memories to cherish about India. And of course, either by joining a street food tour or home cooking experience, you will taste delicious food. Don’t worry about the idea that the food will be too spicy because the food will be cooked as locals do, but they will keep the right level of spiciness as per the taste of a foreign guest.

Moreover, you will have the flexibility to choose your flight (either buy the tickets by yourself or through the travel agency).

The trip is organized by the travel agency GoAmit Holidays and I will be your Tour Leader.
GoAmit Holidays is a travel agency in India with 20 years experience on the local market. My recent trip to India was organized by GoAmit, so I already tested what they can arrange for us and everything was perfect.
