India is a land like no other in the richness and diversity of its people, its culture and its history. It is home to one of the world’s oldest religions and some of its most beautiful man made structures, spectacular landscapes and wildlife and a vibrant and colourful society clinging to ancient traditions whilst embracing the modern world.
This tour starts in Delhi, a city where Mughal and colonial history rub shoulders alongside a vibrant contemporary culture. Continue to the royal blue city of Jodhpur, onto Pushkar and the pink city of Jaipur, to finish in Agra, dominated by the majestic Taj Mahal. The varied cultural programme is balanced by a wide-ranging professional itinerary of visits, talks and meetings with optometrists and eye care practitioners in both rural and urban India.
