A Spiritual Tour of India From Just $393
One of the fascinations of visiting India is seeing the many different sorts of temples and religious practices that flourish here, in the country that is the birthplace to many of the world's great religions.
Gecko Adventures, a small-group adventure tour operator has, smartly, created an itinerary around experiencing these religious practices. Starting in Delhi, its "Spiritual India" tour heads to the holy Sikh city of Amritsar (for a visit to the extraordinary Golden Temple); to Dharamsala, the Dalai Lama's home in exile; to Rishikesh which is known as the Yoga Capital of the World; and finally to the important Hindu city of Varanasi.
An intriguing itinerary, don't you think? Happily, its also quite inexpensive....if you book before the end of September. Those who book early will pay as little as $398 for this 13-day tour, including the services of a guide, lodgings (in small guesthouses and overnight trains) and in-country transportation (trains). The 50% discount applies to tours through the end of March, 2013; use code GISP when booking.
Participants must pay their own way to New Delhi (the tour begins and ends there), as well as pay for meals, and the sightseeing they do during the tours free time (many tours are included in the original price).
