River Cruises in India

India has among the largest rivers in the world, many flowing down from the mighty Himalayas, starting as a stream, and some, like the mighty Ganga, ending as a ten-mile (15 km) wide river delta at the Bay of Bengal. Banks of these rivers have been home to ancient civilizations through India's 5,000 year old history. What better way to end your visit to India than to experience ancient India in your own ship, cruising the mighty rivers after you have toured the country, and relax after all your shopping, sightseeing and the milieu of her roads?

We have packaged the following river cruises of differing lengths departing at different days of the week. Please contact us for departure details and prices.
