Hadrian Travel's See India Differently is based in Bombay and was started by Mark Trayling after he learnt that more people take vacations to Bulgaria and the UAE than India. As it happens, India's potential is yet to be completely discovered with most people not realising the vast sights and experiences that are available. India has some of the best beaches in the world in the Andaman Islands, the world’s most luxurious and awarded spas, the world's highest mountain range (Himalayas) to go heliskiing or hiking, incredible wildlife including India's own Big 5 (tigers, leopards, rhino, elephant, buffalo), a growing wine/vineyard tourism industry, an amazing range of food (fog vegetarians and meat eaters alike) and even romantic escapes! For cultural insights, India is the country where many religions and even yoga have started, so we're offering luxury train journeys through the most enchanting cultural centres and also a trip to India's Little Tibet - Ladakh.
See India Differently luxury vacations doesn’t look at the tired Golden Triangle – Mumbai, Delhi, the Taj Mahal and the Palaces of Rajasthan....that is just such a small offering of what India has and everyone does it! Not to mention, these are often harrowing trips (e.g. your driver insisting you go to a certain restaurant so he eats free, your guide dragging you to a carpet store for commission, etc).
Instead we look at some of the more extraordinary treasures of India that are still to come on most tourists’ radar. We also take an ethical approach to tourism, with $50 donated to the Wildlife Protection Society of India for every wildlife package booked and encourage others to donate similarly when they are booking.
