Traveling with a group of LGBTQ+ individuals, you’ll visit the sprawling cities of Dehli, Agra, and Jaipur with interval stops at some of the country’s more relaxed destinations. Throughout your trip, you’ll stay in five-star luxury accommodation and can rest assured that no detail will be left unattended by our fantastic LGBTQ+ travel experts.

More Information


The state of LGBTQ+ rights in India is not as cut-and-dry as it might be in other South Asian countries. Whilst gender non-conformity has long been present through the role of the official third-gender Hijras, there are still social taboos surrounding homosexuality. Legal and cultural attitudes are improving- in 2018 the Supreme Court of India ruled that same-sex relationships cannot constitutionally be criminalized.

Day 1-3 Mumbai

After breakfast, embark on our unique “Queer Tour” in vibrant Mumbai, exploring various aspects of queer life in the city. Discover what makes Bombay Queer, or as locals call it, “Bomgay.” Mumbai, once part of Catherine of Braganza’s dowry to Charles II of England, is India’s bustling hub known for its Bollywood spirit. Explore its seven historic islands, fishing colonies, and enjoy a welcome dinner.

The following morning, embark on a city tour of Mumbai, visiting the Gateway to India and the Prince of Wales Museum with its impressive collection, including Indus Valley artifacts and miniature paintings. Explore the Dhobi Ghats, an open-air laundry, and Mani Bhawan, Gandhi’s former residence.

Later, fly to Udaipur, one of India’s most romantic cities, nestled around clear blue lakes. Stay at an 18th-century palace in Delwara, Aravali Hills, where past meets future in its 39 luxury suites. This heritage property blends contemporary design with local materials and offers personalized service for a 21st-century Indian experience.

Day 1-3 Mumbai

Day 3-5 Udaipur

After a seven-hour journey through the countryside of Rajasthan, you’ll arrive in Udaipur. The city is one of the most romantic places in India and is mesmerizingly surrounded by beautiful shimmering lakes. You’ll spend your time exploring the city where you will visit the City Palace and take a boat ride on Lake Pichola. On the last night, you will have a farewell dinner, no doubt with plenty of amazing experiences to reflect on. Best-known for its stunning peacock mosaics and wall paintings, Udaipur is the ideal place to end your tour of India, and perfectly encapsulates the unique charm and beauty of this extraordinary country.

Day 3-5 Udaipur

Day 5-8 Jaipur

Jaipur was one of the first examples in the world of city planning. The 250-year-old settlement is a breathtaking blend of forts, palaces, and teeming markets. Known as the pink city for its characteristic pink sandstone, it’s arguably the most colorful city in the world, and is where you’ll visit the Maharaja’s walled palace, the old city, and the Jantar Mantar observatory. No trip to Jaipur would be complete without a tour of the Amber Fort, and it’s here that you’ll participate in the colorful festivities of the Hindu Holi festival.

Day 5-8 Jaipur

Day 8-9 Agra

After arriving in Agra you’ll enjoy a whistle-stop tour of the Mughal temples that line many of the city’s most bustling streets before setting off from the hotel for the unique opportunity of experiencing the Mughal Heritage Trail under the guidance of a local expert. The highlight of Agra is undoubtedly the Taj Mahal, yet there are plenty of other reasons to visit Agra, and it’s here that your group will be able to enjoy the intoxicating collection of markets and temples that are characteristic of the region.

Day 8-9 Agra

Day 10 Delhi

For travelers in the 19th century who spent their lives trading on the ancient silk route, Delhi was often the first promise of shelter, food, and business after crossing the indomitable Himalayan Mountains. Today, despite having been transformed by British occupation, the city remains a melting pot of cultures. You will be met at the airport before being escorted to your hotel where you will check in and meet the rest of the group. You’ll then be free to spend the rest of the day relaxing at your leisure. During your time in Delhi you’ll explore both the city’s old and new districts, where you’ll tour iconic sites including the Red Fort and Qutub Minar.
