River cruises in India

The rivers of India are a lifeline for millions of people and, as the source of all life, are considered sacred. Ancient cities such as Varanasi and Patna were built on the riverbanks and became centres of art, music, trade, learning and spiritual pursuits due to their location.

A river cruise allows you to explore remote lands, marvel at crumbling palaces and ancient monuments, discover quaint villages and see firsthand the importance of the river in the day-to-day life of local people.

Cruise through lesser-visited Assam, along the Ganges beginning in Varanasi, or appreciate rural south India life on Kerala backwater tours, meandering down river on a day excursion or staying overnight on converted rice barges.
