India is a vast country from the Himalayas in the north to the Indian Ocean in the south. So you can plan holidays in India all year round.

Sightseeing in India?

The most visited regions in India are Rajasthan and Kerala. Rajasthan is in northern India and Kerala is in southern India. Rajasthan is known for fairs and festivals, songs and ballads, folklore and fairy tales, and the traditional costumes are still part of the colorful and fascinating state of Rajasthan.

Besides Rajasthan in northern India, Agra, Orchha, Khajuraho and Varanasi are also the most visited places.

In South India, Kerala is perhaps the most beautiful region on earth. It's less of a tour than a chance to find peace with a bit of sightseeing along the way. Kerala is also known for Kerala Backwaters, Ayurveda and Yoga.

Apart from Kerala, Tamil Nadu is the most visited place in South India. Tamil Nadu is mainly known for the ancient temples in India. If you are still not sure which place to visit, please contact the CozyNuk tour expert to help you.

Navin Benson de Cozynuk à été absolument remarquable tant pour son professionnalisme que pour sa bienveillance, à faire que notre voyage en INDE, soit un voyage fabuleux. Une grande ponctualité du chauffeur, des hôtels très bien choisis, des visites organisées. A tour organized on the mesure. Un très grand merci.

Agencia 100% fiable. Navin y su equipo nos han tratado fantásticamente y Bophal, el conductor, ha sido sin duda lo mejor del viaje. Atento, gradable y muy cercano. Si contactais con la agencia preguntad por él y seguro que no os arrepentis. Gracias por todo. ♥ ️

We are a family of 5 with 3 kids and we traveled around northern India for over 2 weeks. The planning of such a trip takes a lot of time and details. If found the perfect company with Xasmin (CozyNuk) working particularly Navin. I would without hesitation use Navin again to help plan a future trip to India (which was magical).
