All the Indian Tours include some of the countries finest monuments.
The Tours are so designed that you don't have to be a textile
expert or dedicated artist to enjoy the full wide programmes and
friends or partners are very welcome.
Which tour you chose is the direction that you at that time
wish to take up. For instance one year on the Rajasthan Painting
tour I had a surface embroiderer, a quilter a silversmith, a childrens
book illustrator and a photographer; everybody else was a painter.
We mostly have a few people from other countries on every tour
which adds flavour and makes for an interesting social mix. It
is stimulating travel, with most people making firm friends, it
is the rule that almost every group stays in touch and we meet
up socially from time to time.
Travel is a great source of inspiration. We leave our securities
behind us and see with fresh eyes. Never underestimate the creative
energy it can produce and the lasting pleasure such travel bestows.
India is a slow countries to travel in so we have our own transport
throughout, which means we can go at our own pace.
I make use
of good hotels, not always five star (which can be the same the
world over) but three or four star. Occasionally we stay in more
basic hotels, this will either be due to lack of availability
or that that is the only hotel in the area where we want to be.
They have all been carefully chosen to give variety and to experience
different aspects and ambiences of the country. Some are colonial
in feeling or are maybe Havelies (these are noblemens residences)
and on some of the tours we stay in Palaces and Forts.
The programmes for each tour are full and vigorous. So you will
be asked to make some early starts to get everything in.
bear in mind that travel in India does not always match European
standards, so a reasonable degree of fitness is required, as well
as tolerance and patience if things do not go as planned.
Tour you chose our aim is for you to absorb as much of the Indian
culture as possible. Remember Travel with a focus is a real plus.
Even if you are not an expert.
Customs are different, for instance expect to bargain - it is
expected of you. If you come with a spirit of adventure you will
not be disappointed.
India is an exotic and fascinating country and you should find

colourful whirl and heady thrilling mixture and experience.
