Why visit India?
Explore spectacular monuments and historic cities
Educational tours to India typically start in Delhi but can also include visits to other important sites around the country, including Humayun’s Tomb and, of course, the Taj Mahal.
Many groups will take the time to visit the Mughal city of Agra, where they’ll visit the spectacular Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, a huge 16 th -century fortress.
And many groups also choose to visit the famous pink city of Jaipur, where they can explore the Amber Fort, which was built in 967 AD, the impressive 18 th -century Hawa Mahal and the Maharajah’s City Palace.
Our experienced team will be able to advise you on the relevance of each visit to your learning objectives, to ensure that you’re able to make the most of your time in India.
Discover major world religions
India is the birthplace of four of the world’s major religions – Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Jainism and so, where better for a religious studies school trip?
Your students will have the opportunity to learn more about the history of these religions, and they’ll explore their places of worship. They’ll also learn more about key religious practices and the differences and similarities between these religions in terms of history, beliefs and practices.
On your school trip to India, your students will also find out how each of these religions has contributed to the wider Indian culture.
Make your students better global citizens
India is a country that is pluralistic, multilingual and multiethnic. This makes it a fantastic destination for school trips designed to develop intercultural understanding.
And if you are interested in helping your students to become better global citizens, then you may like to consider one of our Helping Hands school expeditions.
Visit North or Central India and take part in social responsibility activities, such as volunteering at a local primary school.
And you’ll have the opportunity to visit projects helping to protect local wildlife, such as tigers and bears.
Plus, you’ll visit projects that are helping the local community, from a café run by acid attack survivors, to an NGO supporting children living in poverty.
