About Indian Excursions Co

Our story


Indian Excursions Co was founded in 2009, by Shiv Gurjar and Madeleine Hann. Together, they make the perfect team, specialising in private and utterly luxurious tours of Rajasthan. With a reputation for excellence and attention to detail, they’ll bend over backwards to ensure your tailor-made journey is nothing short of spectacular.

Personal service is at the heart of what we do. When we say tailor-made, we mean it! There’s no limit on the amount of time we’ll spend refining your itinerary with you until you’re satisfied. No request is too big or too small, and we strive to create a truly personalised experience.


Madeleine Hann

I take care of our guests before they arrive in India. I'm our Tour Designer and it's my job to create your itinerary. I'm there every step of the way, to ensure that your trip to India runs smoothly.

Shiv Gurjar

I'm in charge of operations, so I take care of you when you arrive in India. It's me who does a lot of the behind-the-scenes tasks, such as communicating with drivers and guides.

As specialists in private, luxury, tailor-made tours of Rajasthan, we regularly test first-hand all the routes, hotels and experiences we recommend. This ensures that every moment of our itineraries is as close to perfection as possible.
We are passionate about getting to know our customers so we can gain an understanding of their likes and dislikes, so to match them with the perfect combination of experiences and hotels. We know that what works for one person isn’t always the best for another.
We believe that luxury travel is about more than just opulent hotels. It’s about new experiences, stepping off the usual tourist circuit to seek something more rewarding. We can help you embrace the rich culture of Rajasthan, revealing its beauty and hidden gems in unforgettable ways.
We’re based in India’s capital city of Delhi and have additional offices through Rajasthan and north India.
Our guests are mostly private individuals who have always dreamt of travelling to India but realise the amount of planning required. They recognise that their time is their most precious asset and want to entrust it to experts with a well-proven track record. We’re an intentionally small organisation. We send only a handful of guests a month on tour to Rajasthan. We have deliberately chosen to remain small to look after our guests to the best of our ability and enjoy the process as we go along. For us, Indian Excursions wouldn’t be the same otherwise.

If you’d like to chat with a past guest or two over the phone, many are very happy to do so. On request, we can provide contact numbers of past guests from your country. Most of our guests are from English-speaking countries such as the US, UK and Australia, but we are delighted to welcome people from across the globe to India.
If you’re ready to get started, we recommend taking a look at our sample itineraries for inspiration, before getting in touch to share your ideas with us. You may also like to learn more about how to book.
We are genuinely passionate about and inspired by Rajasthan. It will become evident as soon as you contact us!
