OVERLAND AND RIVER CRUISES

River cruising in India has been a well-kept secret. Travellers will be pleasantly surprised to learn that it is, in fact, possible to cruise for some 1750 miles on the rivers and inland waterways of India, passing through great cities, alongside wildlife sanctuaries and historical monuments, and into the heart ofrural India.

Collaborating with our sister concern, the award-winning and pioneering Assam Bengal Navigation company, we combine river cruises along two of India's most important lifelines – the Ganges and the Brahmaputra - with overland extensions to hinterland historical and cultural gems.

Our culturally immersive overland and river journeys enable travellers to step ashore and experience the full vibrancy and colour of India's local life whilst knowing that the comfort and service of your river boat awaits you at the banks. Even while onboard, you can watch the world go by from the seclusion of your private view.

These tours typically include major sites and monuments, the countryside and villages, and perhaps even a wildlife reserve.
