Tour Itinerary:

We land in New Delhi, visit Red Fort and see the exciting markets. Then we head for nearby Agra to see the breathtaking Taj Mahal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Next we head west to the pink city of Jaiphur, and Ahemdabad, home of the amazing collection of textiles called the Calico Museum. In these famous textile and art producing states of Gujarat and Rajasthan, we will visit many textile artists in their workshops and homes. Several Master textile artists will hold private textile workshops with natural dyes, just for our groups! Workshops include tie-dyed silk and block-printing with natural dyes and wooden blocks. We tour the world-famous Calico Museum with its exceptional textile collections.

During this wonderful tour, we stay in fascinating Heritage hotels in towns, and new, traditional round "bunghas" in the little-visited northern Gujarat area of Kutch. When we created some beautiful projects in our workshops, and have seen all the art that we can possibly absorb, we head south to relax a bit in the tropical state of Kerala. We land in Cochin and drive to the interior to visit plantations of rubber, tea, coffee and spices. Cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger all grow in the area. Finally we spend 24 hours floating in the gorgeous backwater lagoons/lake, on private, handmade, wooden houseboats! Thoroughly relaxed from out houseboat cruise, at the end of our wonderful tour, we fly home.
