Being blissfully swept away in a country of colourful, creative chaos, complete with exotic sounds, sights, smells and sensations to savour.

Welcome to India!

Swagat (welcome) to India!

This tour is the perfect balance of cities and villages. From the bustling Old Delhi to the relaxed streets of Mandawa, once on the silk road trading route.

You’ll visit the Taj Mahal and the forts and palaces for which Rajasthan is famous.

Did I mention the weather is mild when we plan our tours?!

India is one of those countries people are fascinated by, but often overwhelmed at the prospect of travelling alone. Nicole and her team of experienced local guides will ensure you are well taken care of.

The tour is all multi night stays so you can immerse yourself in the culture and buzz of India.

The accommodation is hand-picked and includes heritage properties and a hotel within walking distance of the Taj Mahal.

We welcome friendly, easy going travellers who are looking for a supportive, fun small group tour.

  Testimonials

Highly, highly recommend!

Words can hardly do justice to my Indian adventure with Red Door Tours. 

A perfectly curated itinerary with Nicole and Imran pivoting on a moment’s notice when needed, while ensuring that each guest’s needs were met.

At the end of each day, I thought it couldntt possibly get better, just to be blown away again each day. My fellow travellers were amazing, and I would hesitate joining Nicole on a future tour.

Safe, secure and well supported

My Red Door tour of India was so much more than I expected.

With local guides we explored and could ask questions about everyday life. While the usual attractions were seen, for me the incidental things we did were some of the best highlights. That comes from great contacts and knowledge of the area.

Nothing was too much trouble for Nicole and her team and we felt safe, secure and well supported at all times.

Highly recommend

If you are thinking of a trip to India, I highly recommend Red Door Tours run by Nicole. 

The attention to detail, special care, fabulous accommodation, was just part of the wonderful expereince. You will see more than the normal sites and get a feel for how the people of India live. 

I will not hesitate to do another tour with Nicole of Red Door Tours.

Impossible to pick my favourite experience

My tour of India was everything I wanted and so much more. Thank you to Nicole, she is so capable, organised and only hires the best guides and drivers. I learnt so much and fell in love with India and it’s people.

Impossible to pick my favourite experience and when first asked I said the massage. Now that I home and asked almost everyday the same question I give a different answer. To experience Diwali, the stepwells, staying in a haveli, Taj Mahal, meeting the artisans I just don’t know when to stop.

I recommend Red Door Tours, Nicole and Imran, I always felt safe and I had the most amazing experience with them.

Only way to see India!

 

I had the most amazing 3 weeks with Nicole on her India tour.

My expectation went beyond anything I could have ever dreamt of.

Nicole showed us a county in colour and culture that I had only seen in pictures before.

Her knowledge is endless and her stories will keep you laughing.

Thanks Nicole, you made my holiday so much fun and a beautiful memory I will cherish. You too will fall in love with India.

Thank you for such a fun holiday!

It was only a small group and very much catered to our individual interests.

Nicole and her team are amazing, nothing is too much trouble from sourcing chocolate to tailoring visits to sites according to interests.

The food was everything from street food to fancy restaurants, yet it was always delicious.

Thanks again for so many memories and fantastic shopping.
