“Our first holiday with Authentic India Tours exceeded our expectations. We have done many tailor-made trips with well-known operators and this small company did not disappoint us in any way.
Accommodation and activities were high quality and all guides and drivers made sure we had the best possible experience.”
“We had a wonderful holiday, very well planned and organised. The guides were brilliant, very helpful and knowledgeable. The driver was excellent and looked after us very carefully and attentively at all points.
We were very impressed with the attention to detail in having someone meet us at the airport, at each hotel, and for our return.”
“We felt safe in every way, and could not have found such beautiful places on our own. Authentic India Tours have such depth of knowledge and the passion to prepare a unique experience for their clients.
If you love adventure but want to be well looked after, this company will make sure you have both.”
“We were very grateful for the care and advice taken over all the arrangements and other details like our visas. We felt very well supported and the whole trip was remarkably stress-free as a result.
Thank you very much for a wonderful tour and faultless service.”

“From the start you felt as though you were getting a truly personal service with real knowledge ‘on the ground’ and genuinely friendly and helpful staff who took time to listen to what we wanted for our holiday.
The result was the most amazing trip to India, with the best possible accommodation, service, drivers and tour guides you could imagine.”
“What an amazing holiday. From start to finish the staff at AIT were extremely helpful and accommodating, putting together a bespoke holiday that centred around what we wanted from our trip to Kerala.
We had an amazing experience… would highly recommend, and book again.”
“A perfect escape! We chose a bespoke tour for just the two of us and were fortunate to have Mathew our fantastic driver. Vimal listened to our wishes and curated a wonderful trip including the highlights of Kerala.
Having a houseboat to ourselves was a memorable privilege Thank you for a wonderful trip in a beautiful place.”
“From the outset AIT listened to our requirements, offered helpful and sensible advice and produced an excellent itinerary from Bengaluru to Alleppey which provided a wonderful and fulfilling experience.
A very professional and efficient service delivered at all times.”
“A trip of a lifetime to Kerala, everyone should go! From start to finish the level of service and attention to detail was second to none, our personal driver was very attentive and informative and the local guides were superb.
The itinerary was well put together and our accommodation was excellent.”
“I booked my dream holiday to India (Mumbai, Amritsar, Ranthambore & Rajasthan) with Authentic India Tours. Food was fabulous. My driver was brilliant and never late. There was so much new I tried.
Go with an open mind and trust this company to provide the personal touch all the way through your trip.”
“From the moment I contacted AIT to the moment we arrived back on UK soil, I cannot fault their service. All communication was clear and timely; the advice given on getting our visas to what to pack was extremely helpful; the itinerary and organisation superb. Our guides were all wonderful and we shared some great experiences with them.
India itself was incredible: the culture, heritage, history, architecture, the warmth and kindness of its people were such that I haven’t experienced in quite some time and I can’t wait to book my return trip.”
“I’ve had the most amazing experience visiting India, it’s such an amazing country. We managed to see so much in a short amount of time. There were so many highlights, but the biggest for me was seeing the Taj Mahal. The tour was extremely well organised from start to finish (from enquiry, booking, visa applications and final detailed itinerary).
The tour guides & reps accommodated all of our needs, nothing was ever any trouble. I hope that one day I’ll get the chance to go back again.”
“It was beyond all expectations. Being somewhat apprehensive beforehand mainly about the weather, water and mosquitoes, none of them presented any problem. I loved every minute of the whole trip. Our driver was excellent and any change to the itinerary was no problem to him and our guides including a 5.30 start to the Taj Mahal from the previous evening.
Our three guides were first class and I felt I was in very safe hands. The hotels were excellent. I cannot fault our trip to India in any way whatsoever. Thank you.”
“South India is one of the most memorable places I’ve ever been to. The service was fantastic, and the warmth and friendship we experienced from the Indian people was phenomenal.
We went out of season, so we had both sunny and rainy days, but that didn’t stop us exploring our surroundings and there was always plenty to do. I’d highly recommend a tour of South India, it was magical!”
“As a photographer, the stunning scenery of South India has always appealed to me. I chose Authentic India Tours as I could create my own itinerary for Kerala to fit in with a very short timescale, and wanted an adventure with ABTA protection.
I stayed in some incredible hotels, met amazing people and had a wonderful time. Thank you!”
“Vimal and the team organised a fantastic tour of South India and the Andaman Islands with two weeks’ notice.
We loved the houseboat on the tranquil backwaters, trekking above the Munnar tea plantations the hustle and bustle of Chennai and Kochi. Then unspoilt beaches and scuba diving & night kayaking with bioluminescent plankton. A must-visit!”
“I took a whistle-stop trip to Kerala in September 2019 and managed to fit in all the sights in just five nights. The tour was an excellent blend of culture, wildlife and sightseeing and the food was absolutely amazing.
The Village Life Experience in Kumarakom is not to be missed and was a real highlight of my trip to Kerala. I can’t wait to return!”
“Vimal and his team were extremely helpful right from our first enquiry and our trip was perfectly organised. We cannot thank you enough. Hari our driver was so courteous and the first week touring the beautiful sites of Kerala was a fantastic introduction to the country.
Each of the hotels we stayed in was unique and we had the best level of service every step of the way. We would highly recommend Authentic India Tours for your trip.”
David & Liz, Derby
“We visited Bangalore, Hassan, Mysore, Kabini, Wayanad, Cochin and Kumarakom and stayed in lots of lovely hotels. Our holiday was very well organised and our driver was very polite and informative.
We really enjoyed the activities, particularly birdwatching and the two days spent on the houseboat, where we saw daily life on the river and met the villagers. A really memorable holiday, which far surpassed our expectations!”
“Thank you for arranging a fantastic trip. The logistics were smooth from start to finish, which allowed us to really enjoy the places we visited and the many spectacular birds we found with the expert help of the local guides.
Sanu was exceptionally knowledgeable and dedicated to helping us find all of our target birds. We saw far more than I ever expected and we are still excited about how successful our trip turned out to be.”
