Indus Experiences has announced the launch of two new historical battlefield tours in India, as part of its 2015 programme.
Tapping into the heightened interest in by-gone days and conflicts from the past, which has been boosted by TV programmes such as “Who Do You Think You Are”, the company’s two 12-day organised tours 'From Colony to Independence' and 'Battlefields & More' will be led by military history expert Mike Scott. Both tours will explore and follow the military campaigns which led to India becoming the vibrant and challenging country it is today.
Yasin Zargar, the operator's managing director, said: “Exploring history in general, and the military conflicts which shaped countries and continents is something which is becoming increasingly popular, and we wanted to offer tours which are interesting, informative and gave a real insight into Indian military history. With Mike Scott escorting the tours, there’s no better way to get comprehensive insight into the action that took place all those years ago.
“We are confident that our tours, as well as being the most in-depth available in India, also provide the best value for money. Included in each tour is an accompanying English tour-coordinator and expert ground handling staff, making these tours the ideal choice for those wanting a more detailed experience.
“We are now arranging an increased number of bespoke Battlefield and family history tours for individuals and smaller, family parties who do not want to travel as part of a larger organised group, preferring a more tailored itinerary to suit their individual requirements. Travel agents can earn excellent commission on these tours and we encourage that they promote them and seek out opportunities in their local area by contacting for example Royal British Legion Associations, Military History Associations and all similar organisations to secure their piece of this fast growing sector.”
Prices for 'From Colony to Independence’ lead in at £2,385 per person based on two sharing for a February 15, 2015 departure. The ‘Battlefields & More’ tour departs on September 13, 2015 with prices from £2,430. Both are 12-day tours but can be extended to add personalised itineraries.
