The India experience

Looking to do something different on your next summer trip? The India Experience will see you travelling around the famous Golden Triangle and down to the beaches of Goa on a 3-week group adventure.

Architectural splendours, chaotic street life, tranquil heaves and culture shocks are all guaranteed while in India. With there being so much diversity, every day will bring an exciting and unique experience – definitely a country where you should expect the unexpected!

The India Experience trip will run on selected start dates throughout the year, including; 4th July 2020, 18th July 2020 and 1st August 2020. We are able to add more dates if there is an interested group of at least 4 people.

"Volunteering in Jaipur teaching within the government schools was such a privilege and good fun! We travelled around the Golden Route and I saw the Taj Mahal, something I will never forget. My most favourite time though, was a week on the beaches in Goa - an amazing town that I will be visiting again."

India’s Golden Triangle comprises the three most visited cities in India; Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. Our main base for your stay will be in Jaipur, which is located right in the heart of the famous route. The fascinating capital Delhi, has a relentless rhythm of humanity and is like nowhere else in the world! Agra, once the heart of the Moghul empire and boasts the unparalleled beauty of the Taj Mahal adorning the banks of the Yamuna river.

Along our journey, we will be visiting all of best attractions India has to offer. These include the iconic Amber Fort, Hawa Mahal (water palace), Nahargarh Fort, Lotus Temple, Humayuns Tomb, India Gate and not forgetting watching the sunrise over the Taj Mahal – don’t forget your camera.

After a busy time exploring the heart of India, we will head to the very different south and the tropical greenery of Goa. With incredible golden sandy beaches, rolling hills and tea plantations, it’s time to experience a more laid back and serene way of life. You will be shown the major beaches and we will also head inland to visit waterfalls, plantations and also have a few days dedicated to chilling on the beautiful beaches!

It’s all very well explaining exactly what you will see in India, but there is so much more to this magical country. With the hustle and bustle of the overcrowded streets, the constant beeping of horns and the many different smells from the food stalls, you will feel and experience something like never before.

During the course of the first two weeks, you will get to volunteer on one of our worthwhile and rewarding community programmes. This is your chance to become part of the local community, where you will learn all about the local traditions and play a vital role helping to teach, look after children or assist within the hospital.

Our volunteering programmes run throughout the year (except during holiday periods), so you will be helping alongside many other volunteers – a great way to make even more friends.
