FAQs for Cultural Tour Packages

Q. What do you mean by cultural tour packages?

India has an extremely rich & diverse culture with several cuisines, festivals, religions, languages, dresses and customs. It is also dotted with the most magnificent monuments, temples, caves, bathing ghats & other historical structures found anywhere in the world.

One way of getting an insight into this rich culture of India is visiting its historical structures. Our Cultural Tour Packages give you an insight into the rich culture of India by covering destinations that are renowned for their monuments, temples & other structures built in the past. During these tours, you are also provided the opportunity of exploring the markets, interacting with the locals, trying the local delicacies and other various activities that give you an idea of the culture of the particular destination you happen to be visiting.

Q. I am interested in Indian festivals, when should I come to experience some popular ones?

India is a large country with 29 states. Some festivals are celebrated in a large part of the country, while the others are celebrated in the other part. There are some festivals which are celebrated exclusively in one state, region or province, and not in the others. So, you must plan your trip according to the festival, or festivals, you wish to experience.

For example, if you want to enjoy the lights and crackers associated with the Diwali festival, plan your trip to India between October-November. If you want to be a part of Holi, the festival of colours, plan your trip to India in late-February to March. You can experience Onam, a very famous festival celebrated in Kerala (South India), marked by the traditional boat race called Vallam Kali, between August-September. Another famous festival called Hampi Utsav, is celebrated in November every year.

Northeast India also has several festivals which are celebrated in each state at different times of the year. For example, the famous Nagaland Hornbill Festival is celebrated in Nagaland in December every year. The festival of Bihu in Assam, which is marked by beautifully synchronised folk dances, folk music, competitions and various activities, is held in April every year. And, if you want to witness and be a part of one of the biggest music festivals in India, the Ziro Music Festival, plan your trip in September.

Of course, if you are spending your holidays in a part of India where the date coincides with a famous festival there, that’s great. Go ahead and be a part of it!
