Contiki returns to India after 40-year hiatus

TORONTO — After a 40-year break from the region, Contiki makes its triumphant return to India with the launch of a brand new itinerary entitled ‘The Eternal India.’

The 12-day journey travels from Delhi to Agra to Jaipur and eventually on to Goa, following Contiki’s more relaxed ‘In-Depth Explorer’ pace. Guests will also visit Ranthambore, Udaipur and Mumbai, enjoying highlights like a special stay at Ranthambore National Park, a visit to the Dhonk Craft Centre cooperative, and a stop at the world famous Taj Mahal.

Optional activities include a cooking demonstration and local family dinner in Jaipur, a Bollywood tour in Mumbai, a tour of Mumbai at dawn, and a yoga class on the beach.

“We’ve recently seen a sharp rise in the demand for more authentic, out of comfort-zone travel experiences that give young people more of a sense of adventure and make them feel far from home,” said Alexis Sitaropoulos, Contiki’s VP of Marketing. “Our amazing new India trip really encapsulates this style of travelling, but also provides for the best food, accommodation and in region travel as well, serving up the best of both worlds to our savvy young travellers.”

The Eternal India trip departs from December 2016 and is currently on sale now. Agents and clients alike can visit contiki.com/destinations/asia/tours/3026-eternal-india for more details.
