✈️ UK to Delhi (1 night): You’ll be met at the airport in Delhi and escorted to your hotel… and then, your sightseeing can begin! There’s so much to see and do in this mesmerising capital, with highlights including the Bangla Sahib Gurudwara, Laxminarayan Temple, and Jhandewala Temple, the serenity of Akshardhaam Temple and the qawwali at Nizamuddin Chishti’s Dargah (a musical performance featuring devotional Sufi songs, known as qawwalis).
🚂 Delhi to Amritsar (2 nights): Next, you’ll take a train from Delhi to Amritsar, the city of the Golden Temple. Your two-night stay here includes a half day tour of the city, allowing you to explore the sacred Golden Temple and the Durgiana Temple. You can witness the daily ceremonies, taste kadha Prasad (a sacred offering in the Sikh tradition), and pay respects at Lal Mata Mandir, famous for its sacred pujas (a Hindu worship ritual).
🚗 Amritsar to McLeod Ganj (2 nights): For your next destination, you’ll be driven to McLeod Ganj, the home of the Dalai Lama. En route, you’ll enjoy the scenic drive as you’re escorted to this charming town nestled in the Himalayas. On arrival in McLeod Ganj you’ll have the opportunity to explore the Dalai Lama Temple, the ancient Shiva Temple, and the town’s vibrant local markets. Also discover the Kangra State Museum and Norbulingka Institute.
🚗 McLeod Ganj to Chandigarh (1 night): Your 8-hour drive will take you on a picturesque route as you descend from the Himalayan region of McLeod Ganj and to the plains where Chandigarh is located. Chandigarh is known as the City of Gardens, and here you can visit the Rock Garden, Rose Garden, Pinjore Garden, and take in the city’s wonderful architecture that creates a wonderful balance between concrete structures and natural beauty.
🚗 Chandigarh to Rishikesh (2 nights) You’ll continue your journey on land and head to Rishikesh, situated along the banks of the Ganges river, and often referred to as the ‘Yoga Capital of the World’ where you can soak up the city’s spiritual atmosphere. Here, some of the highlights include observing the Sandhya Aarti (a Hindu ritual of worship), exploring the ghats and walking on the iconic Ram Jhula and Laxman Jhula bridges that carry deep historical and cultural significance in the context of Hindu mythology.
🚗 Rishikesh to Delhi (1 night): You’ll travel back to Delhi by car, where you can relax in your hotel or squeeze in some extra sightseeing before taking a final overnight rest.

From initial contact through web surfing, to personal contact by Hannah, and thereafter Hannah searching for the holiday which we subsequently booked, our experience has been excellent. We needed a reprise of our first long haul holiday from years ago , to best celebrate our upcoming Golden Wedding, and this is what Hannah has sourced. Plainly we have yet to take our holiday, but our experience so far with eShores and particularly Hannah, gives us great confidence. Many thanks. Glynn and Joan BensonPosted 1 day ago
Lynette was so helpful in planning our road trip. She listened to what we wanted and offered suggestions. I don’t think I’ll use anyone else for our holidays. The price for our trip was so competitive as she got us great deals. Definitely a 5* servicePosted 2 days ago

Absolutely perfect. Special thanks to Rachel for arranging our holiday of a lifetime. The whole process from initial enquiry to getting off the plane at the end of our holiday was easy, smooth and straightforward. Our 3 centre holiday included :- flights from London to USA, 3 hotels in different cities, 2 internal flights in the USA and one way car hire. Everything was in place and all timings etc meshed perfectly. The hotels were all located in the areas we wanted to visit minimising additional travel. Rachel was so helpful with her advice and guidance. We will definitely be asking Rachel to arrange our next adventure trip. We can't thank everyone at Eshores enough.Posted 5 days ago
eShores were recommended by a friend. We would normally put together our own itineraries but wanted some help with a South America itinerary. Nick was excellent throughout, with recommendations for slight changes to the itinerary for logistical reasons and great choices of hotels that we would never have found! We were so pleased that we returned to eShores for a South East Asia trip with friends - and were pleased that Nick was responsible for this itinerary too; which we are all very pleased withPosted 6 days ago
