Information on India

Scroll down for Visa information

In the right hand margin of this page are links to pages providing tourist oriented information on India, as well as facts about our organization. India can be bewildering to the first time visitor; it is an ancient culture that understands, and absorbs, a little too easily. Foreign influences (and encounters) have been shaping India for thousands of years, and the rituals and behavior you'll encounter are usually a result of many millenniums of evolution.

India has the second most UNESCO World Heritage Sites (the Taj Mahal is an obvious example) in the world. With Easy Tours Of India, you select which historical treasures and natural wonders you explore. While you're with us, you'll have the best opportunities to experience India's amazing diversities in people, architecture, geography, and cultural heritage.

Nature is at its best in India. Explore the awe inspiring peaks of the Himalayas, which are crowned by Mount Everest. Visit India's great plains that spread outwards from Delhi, including the fabled desert that covers much of Rajasthan and encompasses the magical cities of Jaipur, Jodhpur, and Udaipur, as well as the famous Pushkar camel festival.

Discover India from where these plains end, and the lush Deccan plateau takes over, dominating southern India. Experience the Ghats, where the plateau descends to meet the mostly virgin beaches and warm waters of coastal Indian resorts like Goa and Kochi (Cochin). Meditate or enhance your knowledge of Yoga in Ashrams where these sciences has been practiced since ancient times.

Learn about Ayurveda or get treatments from the best Ayurvedic centers in the world. Visit Mumbai (Bombay), the bustling city that houses the largest and most prolific motion picture industry in the world.

India is home to tens of thousands of animal & bird species. They all play an integral part in Indian society, history, and day to day existence. Visit India and you can experience Wildlife Parks & Sanctuaries that are home to many of these species, including almost two thirds of the Earths remaining Tigers, roughly half of the planets Elephants, and the worlds only surviving 'Asiatic Lions'.

Indian Cuisine
indian cuisne

Contrary to popular belief, Indian cuisine is not inherently supposed to be hot. It is designed to have a combination of flavors that fascinate your palate and, for this purpose, a large variety of spices and herbs are used in the elaborate and time consuming process of cooking in India.

The finer restaurants in India serve cuisine that is milder than most Indian restaurants in other countries. There are people in India that cook and eat really "hot" food; however, almost all Indian restaurants will ask for your preference while taking your order.



Weather in India
Delhi Weather

Delhi: The period between October to March is undoubtedly the best time to be in Delhi. The weather in the city is comparatively pleasant and the searing summers as well as the inundating monsoon rains do not disrupt any tour of Delhi.

Easy Tours of India plans and coordinates your visit so you'll get the most out of your travels in India. If you're not going with us, you're wasting time (because of painfully slow travel and endless delays) that would be better spent at any of India's memorable destinations.

Travel journals on India often romanticize train, bus, and other road travel. Travel and tour service providers usually forget to emphasize the drawbacks of these forms of travel. You can easily spend more than half the time that you're awake in tedious and unpleasant travel between destinations. This is why we prefer to fly you almost everywhere your plans will take you.
