Any road trip is always going to be rewarding, fun, full of memories, and an opportunity to pack your camera with some amazing photos, but when it comes to choosing where to go, you can seriously up the ‘once in a lifetime’ stakes by choosing somewhere totally iconic and different.
Of course, you can also decide how to do your road trip, i.e. are you going to take your own car? Are you going to hire a car? Are you going to go by motorhome? Or, are you going to do something totally different and go down the route of a motorcycle tour?
This is becoming more and more popular as a method of travel in different countries, and when you think about the advantages, it’s not hard to see why. The wind in your hair, the freedom of the road in front of you, and everything which is passing by really is within touching distance.
Now, with all that being said, designing your own motorcycle journey could be filled with pitfalls, such as knowing where to go, the roads, where to stay, as well as the terrain you will be crossing. If you want to have the best experience, and not miss any of the good stuff, then going with a bespoke company is the best bet. Vintage Rides are a very experienced company who have pre-prescribed motorcycle tours in India on offer. This means you can relax and know that you are in good hands, your guide is going to tell you everything you need to know, and your route is packed with some of the most amazing sights on offer.
India overall is a diverse, colourful, and cultural land, however it is also vast, so having a set route to follow is a must. There are several choices of tour on offer, including the very popular Rajasthan tour, or the Himalaya route, which his packed with high rise roads, stunning views, and an almost lunar-like landscape to pass through. Southern India is also fantastic for exploration, with some of the most beautiful beaches you will find anywhere in the country, and the vibrant atmosphere of destinations such as Goa.
Accommodation and most meals are included in the price of your tour, and you can choose to head off onto the open road with a group of likeminded travellers, who may turn out to be your new best friends! Of course, if you have a large group already in mind, you can opt for a private tour instead.
The fact remains however, that you will be able to experience the best of India, including the culture and authentic heartbeat of the country, away from the usual tourist traps, and that is true travel in its purest form.
