India has diversity like no other place on Earth and Saga has a collection of holidays to suit first-time visitors or those returning to soak up more of India’s culture - with prices from £1399 for 7 nights.

Soul of Kerala
A gentle introduction in India. Locals say if you stand still for a minute in Kerala you will grow another inch because the land is so lush. Miles of green sculpted tea plantations in the Munnar hills will inspire gardeners to work on a one-colour theme, while lazy days cruising in the backwaters of Alleppey and sampling the delicious cuisine will delight any new visitor. Unwind at the idyllic Marari Beach Resort to complete the south-west India tour.
