Group tour of India

Cathy's verdict
The sights, sounds and sheer excitement of a trip to India make it an unforgettable experience. The Exotic India tour from Cox & Kings includes not only the country’s most iconic spots, from the Taj Mahal to tigers in Ranthambore National Park, but it's also designed specifically for solo travellers.

Cox & Kings says

We offer dedicated solo traveller tours to some of our most popular destinations, enabling you to explore spectacular parts of the world in style, with complete peace of mind and in the company of like-minded people.

  • expert-guided groups
  • no single supplements
  • singles only
  • your own double room

There are no single supplements and accommodation is based on the single occupancy of twin or double rooms in luxury, characterful hotels that offer sensible prices for solo travellers. Group sizes vary with an average of 14 people and a maximum of 18 – whilst there is no age grouping, most of our single clients tend to be over 50.

Every tour includes a welcome dinner to allow the group to get to know each other, and a farewell dinner. Breakfast daily and some other meals are included but there’s also the chance to discover local restaurants. Experienced tour managers accompany each trip throughout, supported by knowledgeable local guides and drivers.

Exotic India, for solo travellers only, is a popular 12-night tour of the Golden Triangle and beyond to explore some of the country’s most iconic sights. Beginning in the capital of Delhi, the tour also includes sunrise at the Taj Mahal, visits to majestic forts and palaces in the princely state of Rajasthan and the chance to search for the elusive tiger in Ranthambore National Park. The tour finishes in Udaipur, arguably the most picturesque city in Rajasthan.

For those wishing to extend their holiday, our experts recommend Amritsar, the holy city of the Sikhs; Shimla, the former summer capital of the British Raj in the Himalayan foothills; or Goa, the former Portuguese colony famed for its beautiful beaches.
