India Cultural Tours and Adventure Trips
with Carol and Martin Noval
“A tourist stays on the surface, the skin, of the places he visits but the explorer penetrates to their heart.” Thomas Pynchon
India is the world’s last living ancient civilization. Traditional people today still live in a reality that is 3000 years old. It is that world that our trips bring alive. We’ve lived in India for more than 30 years. Martin – a former professor of philosophy – and Carol have a deep understanding of both Indian and Western culture, and communicate it in lively and relevant ways so that the sites we visit and the people we meet in neighborhood temples, local markets and family homes come alive to our groups in memorable ways.
Our small-group India cultural and adventure tours visit world famous cultural, artistic and natural wonders, and some of our favorite, little-known places where India reveals herself in intimate, unrehearsed ways.
Our trips are personal and informal; you hardly notice that the logistics work precisely, comfortably and flawlessly. Seeing India with us is like traveling with friends who just happen to be experts.
"Simply cannot wait to put on my India travel shoes again and, best of all, experience the wonders with you two at my side.” Margrit V.
“My trip with you replays itself in my mind quite often and makes me more eager every day to go back to India. I have been on quite a few tours and trips, many purported to be "educational" about history and culture of an area. None of them came close to yours. In the end, the leaders of the tour are the key to the experience.” Barbara McD.
