India: Authentic Cultural Tours

Get Your Custom Quote

Consider India to be simply the most foreign country on the planet; similar to none and unfamiliar to most. The very fiber its culture is made from is different than the West’s, and that fact is evident in every detail. Get comfortable with people in your personal space, accustom yourself to the smell of strong spices, open your mind to spiritually different perspectives. All things considered, one thing’s for sure: India is a place that cannot be described, only experienced. If you consider yourself a world traveler, India beckons.

Agra Fort

Palaces and Forts

Europe keeps its history in its churches, cathedrals and museums. India does so in its temples, forts, and palaces. The Red Fort in Delhi and Agra Fort in Agra, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites, are seen by most any traveler at some point during their time in India, and the farther you travel away from the Golden Triangle, the more of these artistic marvels you will discover. And the more you will realize: these places are intrinsically connected to India’s identity.
Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal

Few landmarks in the world match the Taj Mahal for sheer hype. We’re here to tell you that even for the skeptics, this architectural tribute to romantic love has been walking the walk since 1653. In modern day, the grounds surrounding the Taj are an orchestra of cameras, tourists, guides, locals, and the ubiquitous merchant. Day in and day out however, the sunrise reflects off its dome in the morning, the sunset does the same in the evening, and millions of people get to experience this tribute to an emperor’s love.

The Landscape

Yes, India is home to one sixth of the world’s population, but around the human masses, near the overwhelmingly strong spices, and around the sound of 1.2 billion people living their lives, travelers can forget to notice the unforgettable landscapes this country has to offer us. India’s diversity does not stop at its people, or its cultures.
Ganga Aarti Ritual

Food & Culture

India is known as having the oldest surviving culture in the world, dating back to 8,000BC. Since then, influences from Persian, Mughal, European, and most recently Western sources have combined to create a modern India that is diverse to the point of absurdity. Likewise, Indian food, religion and language have been some of the country’s most internationally influential exports. Travelers should go to India expecting to be influenced by it for the rest of their lives. The spices and spirituality will envelop you, and the country will see your comfort zone and change it.

South East Asia Explorer

I can not tell you how smooth every thing has gone. We kept thinking how lucky we were to have found you. All around us we watched travelers frustrated confused and angry, while we just sailed through our travels. And it was all because of you. I will recommend you and Global Basecamps to any one I know that is planning a trip.

Halong Bay

Our trip was absolutely fabulous and I wouldn't have changed anything. We absolutely love everything about Vietnam and Cambodia from the people to the landscape, food, etc. Everything went very smoothly and was very well organized. Our guides were all very prompt, courteous, and flexible in altering plans based on weather or something that popped up and caught our interest. All of the planned excursions were fantastic and a nice variety of things to do. We really enjoyed the home stay and mixing with the locals - great cultural aspects! We have tried to figure out our favorite days and can't do it. Thank you for helping me plan one of the most wonderful vacations I've ever taken. I don't think that there is anything that you could have improved upon for us.
