News Boosts Portfolio of Products and Experiences in India Boosts Portfolio of Products and Experiences in India has launched an extensive portfolio of new products and experiences in India, making it even easier for agents to sell wonderful experiences and excursions to all types of travellers visiting the country. Taj Mahal

Annabel Cove, Business Development Manager, said: “It’s not just the intrepid travellers who want to experience the heart and culture of a country; families on a package holiday in Goa are as keen to access something uniquely Indian as the backpackers who book home-stays and the executives with time on their hands while in India on business. We are responding to the growing demand from our agents for inspiring, genuinely authentic experiences in India, accessible from multiple locations within the country.”

India has an almost endless variety of cultures, monuments, landscapes and places to explore. The focused range of Indian products previously sold by DoSomethingDifferent were extremely popular, and so it became obvious more opportunities to explore this amazing country were needed – and the new portfolio does not disappoint.

Probably best known for being the ‘largest slum in Asia’, Dharavi’s Industries actually has an annual turnover of approximately US$665 million. With the new Spirit of Dharavi private tour, travellers can see much more to this historic area of Mumbai than poverty. Anyone lucky enough to take this tour will be moved and inspired as a wide range of these activities: recycling, pottery-making, embroidery, bakery, soap factory, leather tanning, poppadom-making and many more, are created in innovative ways – and in very small spaces!

If travellers prefer to keep it light, there’s the Private Bollywood Tour, which gives a peek-a-boo into the sets, locations and studios where Bollywood has created some of the greatest Indian Epics. The trip even includes lunch in the Bollywood restaurant.

“Anyone in Mumbai with a day to spare MUST do the new Mumbai Full Day Private City Tour,” said Annabel. “Bombay is the commercial capital of India, so little wonder that it is the most modern city in the country. See the Gateway of India, the Prince of Wales Museum and the Rajabai Clock Tower. The most unusual finds can sometimes be the most memorable, like Dhobi Ghat, the largest outdoor laundrette in the world and its endless rows of open-air concrete wash pens, each fitted with its own flogging stone. You’ll be overcome with its vastness and forever grateful for the modern British way of laundering clothes.”

The Full Day Excursion to Agra is, of course, going to be at the top of many to-do lists as it includes a visit to the Red Fort and the (uber) famous Taj Mahal. Meanhwile, transportation via tuk-tuk, metro and private vehicle all make the Temples of Delhi tour a true gem of an excursion that explores some of the better known temples, as well as some that are off the tourist trails, before enjoying a Thali lunch.

So from Elephant Tours in Goa, and Delhi Food Walk Tours to the less obvious Pigeon Racing, has a great new portfolio of glorious Indian experiences; there is definitely something for everyone.
