Globally, Indian cuisine in not new, but when international tourists come to India the big question for travellers is ‘what and where to eat’? In recent years, we have noticed the three fold change in number of travellers looking for these kinds of culinary tours in India.”
Globally, international travellers are very familiar with the north Indian cuisine. The food trails in India also shows similar trends. Delhi and Rajasthan have emerged as the most favourable destinations for culinary tourism, whereas cities like Mumbai have now started to tantalise some taste buds of international travellers.

We have a strong presence in Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Varanasi, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Mumbai, and we have package tours in all these cities. Our very popular tour is the ‘Golden Samosa’ which is for Delhi, Agra, Jaipur.”
