Experience Rick Stein's India with The Adventure Company

We've been watching Rick Stein's India with great delight as our teams know many of the Indian locations Rick visits.

On our Indian Holidays we take you off the beaten track to experience the sights, smells and tastes of India. Our Spiceland & Elephants tour takes you to Southern India, starting in the Spice town of Cochin where you will get to experience the tightly packed streets the scents of cinnamon, cloves and countless other spices mingle in the sea breeze. You will get to see the Chinese fishing nets and the influences of Portugese traders, the Dutch and the British.

Cruise the backwaters on a converted rice barge

The backwaters of Malabar offer a wonderful opportunity to gently cruise in a comfortable converted rice barge and enjoy India. Along the way you will stop at jetties and ferry stops packed high with sacks of cashews ready for market and stacks of fresh coconut.

Or you can head to North India to experience the unmistakable Taj Mahal and the beautiful Agr fort. If Southern India offers a feast for the table, The Taj Mahal is truly a feast for the eyes,  at first glance it appears to be simply white marble, but closer inspection reveals that the surface is inlaid with a profusion of semi-precious stones which form stylised flowers and bowers.

Taj Mahal

'The Venice of the East' is Udaipur famed for its tie-and-dye fabrics and the fine miniature paintings of the Mewar School. Its bazaars and shops are fascinating to wander around and it’s not unusual to come face to face with an elephant as you explore the narrow lanes and streets.

India has so much to offer all the senses. If Rick Stein's India series has inspired you to visit India then take a look at our tours or read other visitors experiences here.
