While anyone can book a trip through the internet, not every provider is the same. We have heard, countless times, from customers who booked their own trips, that what they got was notwhat they thought they were getting. In fact, they were miles apart!
Experiencing issues with providers, guides, vehicles and accommodations is common when booking a trip on the internet, where what appears like a good deal is not always so. Many resellers of trips to India are just that – resellers. They are selling something they have not directly experienced, researched or planned. In contrast, we only recommend and offer what we have personally experienced!
The travel planners and hosts (who are also the owners) of LETSDOINDIA! are passionate about sharing our beautiful birthplace – India – and take great care in designing what we know will be a Journey-of-a-Lifetime for you!
Do not gamble with your adventure! LETSDOINDIA! owners each have more than 20 years of solid experience. We find the best of everything through our trusted contacts, research, interviews, and most of all – experience! We test every aspect of your trip before it is placed on your Journey-of-a-Lifetime itinerary, and is associated with our brand name. Not only to maintain our excellent reputation but because we want your journey to be made of wonderful moments you cherish forever.
How we guarantee a premium travel experience

We screen our providers...
We have been working for over a decade with excellent industry experts who know the nuances and details necessary for making a good trip, great! The difference is in the small details which we ensure are looked after.
We hand-select tour guides...
who along with being English-speaking, are recognized for their knowledge, personality and professionalism. It is not enough just to know a language – our guides must have a friendly attitude paired with an ability to accommodate the specific needs and requests of our guests. Many guests have built friendships with some of our guides and keep in touch long after the trip!
We ensure the vehicle you get...
from a small car to an SUV, mini-van or bus – is mechanically sound and safe. Your drivers are also vetted for their professionalism, personality, and reliability.
We fully support you...
before, during and after your trip. You get 24/7 support should you need it on a solo or unescorted trip at any point – we are simply a phone call away.
We take care of all the details...

5 MYTHS ABOUT TRAVELING IN INDIA —Busted!
For many Westerners, India is a magical, mystical country. Our romance with it may have started with travel novels set in colonial times. For others, it developed from watching movies taking place in India, filmed on location, featuring fairy-tale landscapes, architectural masterpieces and epic storylines, like found in Gandhi or Slumdog Millionaire.
North American culture is an impoverished, third-world country when one compares the riches of India's culture, including its many artists, architects, poets, philosophers, musicians, writers, physicians, healers, and spiritual leaders who have left us their legacies to study, learn, and inspire the human spirit.
The richness of India is mirrored in the spectrum of colours, like those found in the saturated hues of India's textiles. Or the celebration of senses tasted by our palates in the complexity, subtlety, novelty and medicinal power of herbs and spices found in Indian cuisine. India integrates the worship of the sacred and the divine into the daily rituals of living, such as bathing in the morning and eating daily meals.
India is a culture so foreign to our own that we secretly fear going into culture shock upon arrival, or suffering a dark night of the soul, by shaking our fundamental beliefs about ourselves and the universe. It doesn't help that India is the presumed rite of passage test for solo travellers.
The longer we put off going to India, the greater our fear becomes. The idea of travelling there becomes overwhelming and anxiety-provoking. Will I get sick, in trouble, or completely overwhelmed by the excess and magnitude of this country and its over 1.3 billion people and their stories? As our fears grow, so do our excuses.
LETSDOINDIA!busts 5 myths about travelling in India. We created this short video to overcome your fears and reawaken your dreams of being captivated by its mysteries and rewarded by its spiritual truths.
