INDIA BY HAND curates extraordinary travel experiences all throughout India, with a focus on art, design, fashion, and handcrafts.

On top of that, you can expect first class accommodation, private transportation, 24/7 concierge service and a genuine emphasis on hygiene, health and safety.
After checking out one of INDIA BY HAND’s guided tours last year, we were super excited to hear more about the upcoming travel experiences. These are two of our favourites that we’d definitely recommend for creatives looking to combine art and culture.
