About Us

Far Horizon Tours, was formed in 1992 by two passionate individuals with over two and half decades of experience, in tourism to India.  The vision was to provide a unique, fresh and personal approach for travel to the Indian subcontinent. The company’s ethos is to not only view the famous monuments of this great land but, to experience what we call “Experiencing the Living Cultures of India”.

After 24 years, our journeys are still handcrafted. We owe our growth, recognition and prosperity to: - Strong Partners/Representatives that share our philosophy of eclectic experiences. - Our guests who are most educated, active and culturally sensitive travelers from across the world. - In-house Team of passionate professional and select band of trip leaders, escorts and guides.

Being a tourism organization, which offers an in-house expertise ranging from, adventure travel including trekking and safaris, to cultural, cruising and leisure travel, it is a genuine one-stop “India Travel Shop”.

Result is that it has its own hand picked trip leaders in various languages in each of the regions of India, Nepal and Bhutan.
