Boutique travel specialist, Beacon Holidays has launched its 2014 ENCHATING INDIA program; a fully escorted group tour with owner Himanshi M Luhar.

imgBorn and brought up in India, Luhar takes you on a magical journey through her country. Visit iconic locales like the Taj Mahal but also  lesser know community projects and schools. Showcasing India through the eyes of Luhar, who moved to Australia over 10 years ago this is a returning to her roots   for Luhar, that allows her to appreciate little things and memories of a lifetime.

India is a phenomenal country. I grew up there so I should know. Every 50 kilometers you travel the food, language, backdrop and the people change ever so slightly. So when you travel from the north to the south or east to the west; be forewarned you will have a life changing experience!”

People have always told me, when you go to India next time let us know and we’ll come with you. We want to get the local experience. After many years of pondering I’ve finally decided to do it. I want to show people my beautiful country. Visit the Taj Mahal and hear the most romantic love story, travel through Rajasthan and feel like you have gone back in time and jumped into a history book (I studied in Mayo College a leading boarding school in Rajasthan for 9 years, so all the boutique hotel owners are part of my school alumni), dance to the tunes of Bollywood in Mumbai where I grew up.

We’ll visit historic sites, we’ll take photo’s at the Taj Mahal, we’ll visit cultural epicenters, we’ll eat delicious food, we’ll learn how to cook it, we’ll meet princes and princesses, we’ll meet the hip and happening, we’ll meet the Bollywood stars, we’ll meet the local craftsmen and women. We’ll visit my school; we’ll go to my home and meet my Big Fat Indian family.

I want to show you my India, it’s truly Enchanting …. So come and join me.” says Himanshi M Luhar.

The Enchanting India program is a 12 nights -13 day tour. You visit not only the many highlights of India like Delhi, the Taj Mahal in Agra, the pink city of Jaipur, the blue city of Jodhpur and the lake city of Udaipur, but it also goes deeper into the grass roots with community based programs and local experiences. We visit the village housed behind the Taj Mahal in Agra, the Brahmin homes in Jodhpur, the community based world famous village of the Women of Sadhna, Mayo College a prestigious boarding school of India built by the British. Travelling on to Pushkar we will visit the only Brahma temple in the world.

Finishing off the tour in the commercial capital of Mumbai, guests will have the opportunity to visit the sets of a Bollywood film in the making. An awe inspiring sight of the famous lunch box delivery of Mumbai, where 5000 delivery men pick up home cooked meals and deliver them to two hundred thousand people’s workplaces everyday!
