This Art & Design Tour Of India Is A Creative Traveller’s Dream

30 September, 2019

If you’re looking for a truly cultural and creative experience in India, these two tours will tick the boxes.

Planning a trip to explore all the diversity, energy and colour that India holds? INDIA BY HAND curates extraordinary travel experiences all throughout India, with a focus on art, design, fashion, and handcrafts. Guided by experts and local insiders, you can trust that you’re in good hands, no matter what experience you’re looking for.

With carefully curated creative and cultural experiences packed into each day, INDIA BY HAND does so much more than a normal guided tour. It offers access to people, places and experiences that are not available to the public. 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.

Mumbai tour

This quick, artsy getaway from Hong Kong involves four-days and five-nights in India’s eclectic commercial capital. You’ll get a chance to check out the best contemporary art galleries, meet artists in their studios, explore museums and street art with a curator and delve into Mumbai’s art deco treasures with a heritage expert. To top it all off? Rejuvenate with spa and yoga sessions, indulge in local shopping and the feast on the finest cuisine.
