The magic of India

Amanda's verdict
Not everyone feels they should take their kids to India but those who do come back saying it was one of the most rewarding things they have ever done. It is the combination of people, food, heritage and sights, sounds and smells that make for an unforgettable family adventure. Getting expert input into crafting your trip is vital and this is where Cox & Kings excels.

Cox & Kings says

India is our heartland and we’re passionate about it. We have more than 50 years’ experience crafting outstanding private and small group tours throughout this vibrant and magical country.

  • Enthralling sights
  • Fun activities
  • Wildlife encounters

What does all this mean for your family? It means that you can rely on us to craft and deliver the perfect family adventure in India – seamlessly.

We have created some specific India family adventures but our expert team will be delighted to tailor-make your holiday to suit you. Accommodation throughout is in a mix of luxury four and five star hotels as well as eco-lodges and wildlife reserves.

Taj & Tigers is a kaleidoscopic mix of incredible experiences. On this 14-night private tour we’ll guide you through the frenzy of Delhi, see the sun rise over the Taj Mahal, take you on safari to see the Royal Bengal tiger in Ranthambore National Park, take you to a local home for a cookery lesson and enjoy exploring rural Rajasthan by train and bicycle.

The pace is a little slower on our Kerala Family Adventure but it’s no less enthralling. A tuk-tuk tour of Cochin, wildlife safari in the Nagarhole National Park, a stay in a fascinating eco-tourism village and the petroglyphs of Eddakal caves and the chance to enjoy zip lining, hiking, bamboo rafting and cycling await.

The highlight for many is a stay on board a traditional houseboat, cruising along the Keralan backwaters.
