July 18, 2017 Tour Operator 1 Comment Email Email

On The Go Tours, the award-winning tour operator specialising in locally-led group tours and tailor-made holidays to worldwide destinations, has launched seven new tours to the Indian Subcontinent.

Travellers can now choose from over 70 tours in India, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Nepal and Tibet, ranging from festival tours in Bhutan to safari adventures in Sri Lanka or active cycling journeys through India.

On The Go Tours has also made exciting changes to eight existing Indian itineraries with the addition of the city of Karauli in place of Alsisar, giving guests a unique opportunity to bed down for the night, and privately explore, a palace which is still a residence for the region’s royal family, as well as an early morning bike tour option in Delhi.

The Indian Subcontinent tours range from day trips and city breaks to 18 day journeys, and are suitable for all types of travellers from solo travellers (no sharing and no single supplement on select departures) to families.

The new tours include:
