Family holidays in India

Family holidays in India and Sri Lanka are becoming increasingly popular and not only provide enjoyment but also education for children travelling, says Amaan Khan, managing director of Total Holiday Options.


The latest THO brochure includes 13-day, 12-night private escorted tours with a family focus. The itineraries include activities such as rickshaw rides, National Park visits to spot tigers and other wildlife, and plenty of time to visit markets and villages or just relax. The programmes also take in some of the countries’ ‘must sees’, like Taj Mahal in Agra or Lion Rock in Sigiriya. ‘These tours are not only about the holiday, but also about sharing life messages,’ says Khan.
