Best Family Trip Destinations & Things To Do With Kids In India

family trip from india

India might not be the most obvious family cruise holiday choice, but for those intrepid families who yearn for something different, India may be one of the most captivating countries you encounter, and if you’re up for the challenge, the rewards can be great.

The colors, the chaos, the noise, the dirt, the smells … for any first-time visitor to India no matter their age, the culture shock smacks you in the face and can be astonishing, shocking, and often staggering. India is definitely not for the fainthearted, and is rarely considered a top travel destination for the youngest of families. But for those with slightly older and inquisitive children, it’s a destination that attacks and awakens the senses – exhausting yet energising, frustrating yet thought-provoking, mind-boggling yet magical.

Adventure lies around every corner in India, and simple things like a ride in a tuk-tuk will become a memory for life. But neither will you lack for epic encounters and experiences that rival the world’s best, whether it be the opportunity to go on tiger safari, take mountain train journeys, enjoy backwater houseboat holidays, or take camel rides in the desert. Indeed, amid Bollywood beats and such a vibrant culture, your kids may well believe that they’re part of a movie set!

So for those venturesome clans, read on to learn about some of the best family trip destinations in India, including the things to do with kids whilst you are there, plus some top tips for traveling with kids in India.

Indian children at the Taj Mahal

International and local children alike will love to play in the grounds of the Taj Mahal.

Visit the Taj Mahal

If you are planning a once-in-a-lifetime family trip to India, the chances are that you will want to include the Taj Mahal on your itinerary . It is described as the most beautiful building in the world. The best time to visit the Taj Mahal is at sunrise, and it’s also the least busy time of day. Feed your family before you come, as no food is allowed inside. Be patient and be prepared to queue.

It’s a good idea to hire a local guide who knows the best spots for photography and can get the kids excited about the culture and history of the Taj Mahal and how it came into existence. There are quiet areas for kids to play in the grounds, and remember it is okay to say no to selfie requests.

Puppets for sale in Jaipur

A traditional puppet show amid the pink palaces of Jaipur will be sure to go down a treat with little ones.

Explore the flamboyant palaces and impressive forts in Jaipur

The forts and palaces of Jaipur provide a sanctuary of calm children and adults alike. Visit early to avoid tour groups, and marvel at the intricate pink architecture. Let your kids’ imaginations run wild as they discover ornate doorways, maze-like corridors and narrow staircases, peep through lattice windows and explore gardens and opulent courtyards of a bygone era. You may even catch a traditional puppet show, accompanied with live drumming and singing, which will keep your little ones truly engaged.

Giant astronomical instrument at Jantar Mantar Observatory

Astronomy for all ages – Jaipur’s Jantar Mantar Observatory is an unusual and popular place for families keen on the secrets of the skies.

Visit the Jantar Mantar Observatory

Across the road from the City Palace in Jaipur is Jantar Mantar Observatory. More than just a collection of bizarre artworks, it’s a mind-boggling complex of 14 giant and highly accurate instruments constructed to measure time, predict eclipses, and track the locations of the stars. It’s one of the top things to see in Jaipur, and kids of all ages will receive a good lesson in astronomy. Younger children will love exploring all the weird and wonderful shapes and shadows.

Camel riding in Jaisalmer

Exploring Jaisalmer’s surrounding sand dunes by camel safari is great fun for all the family.

Ride camels through the deserts of Jaisalmer

Chances are that you’ll spot some camels on your travels in India so why not take a camel safari into the desert and camp out under the stars. The Thar desert around Jaisalmer in northern Rajasthan is one of the most popular places to enjoy this Indian experience. It’s an awesome way to escape the cities and witness rural desert life.

Darjeeling Himalayan Railway

The snow-capped Himalayan backdrop, zigzagging turns and scarily-steep gradients of a toy train ride on the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway will delight adults and kids of all ages.

Ride the toy train on the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway

Darjeeling is a must-see place to visit with family in India, and a ride on the famous toy train is a must-do activity. The high snow-clad mountains, the zigzag turns and thrillingly steep gradients will delight adults and kids of all ages. You’ll marvel at the Kanchenjunga Peak and an unbelievably picture-perfect view of Darjeeling town, valleys, forests, and tea gardens on this fabulous journey.

Gulmarg Hill Station

Powdered snow aplenty at the Himalayan hill station of Gulmarg – great for snow-loving families.

Ski the Himalayas in Kashmir

The hill station of Gulmarg, in the state of Jammu & Kashmir in northern India, has gained a reputation as one of the best ski resorts in Asia, home to waist-deep powder snow, near-empty ski runs that go for miles and miles and some of the most affordable skiing in the world. During the winter months, a thick covering of snow is perfect for skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing and snowman building.

This is a brilliant place for a family ski or snowboard holiday, and there are a lot of things to do with kids in Gulmarg. For beginner skiers there are a handful of nursery slopes and lessons available, while the options are endless for more experienced skiers and snowboarders.

Tigers roam Ranthambore National Park

Tiger spotting is the main draw for nature-loving little ones to the wildlife-rich Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan.

Spot tigers in Ranthambore National Park

The forested reserve of Ranthambore is home to leopards, wild boar, sambar, chital, sloth bears, langur monkeys and, of course, Royal Bengal Tigers. Morning and afternoon tiger safaris take place in jeeps and usually last three to four hours. It’s one of the best places to visit in India with family, offering an incredible opportunity to see any of these creatures in their natural habitat.

The reserve itself is quite beautiful, dotted with ancient temples, hunting pavilions and large reservoirs where these jungle cats like to hang out. For a bird’s eye view of the park and its surrounds, climb up Ranthambore Fort that was built in 900 AD. Rumor has it that some weaponry still remains in the ancient barracks.

Rice barge cruises in Kerala

Make a family home away from home … on a houseboat! A cruise around Kerala’s biodiverse backwaters is a brilliant option with kids.

Travel on a houseboat and go kayaking through Kerala’s backwaters

Mellow Kerala in the south is one of the best places in India for a family trip and an easy place to travel with kids. One of the best ways to experience the rural lifestyle of the backwaters ― a long chain of lagoons and lakes that wind their way inland, parallel to the Arabian Sea – is on a kettuvallam (rice barge), a traditional Keralan houseboat . As you glide gently along the waterways past villages, temples, churches and wading buffalos, you may spot working boatyards, fishermen hauling in their catch or villagers separating coir and spinning it into threads.

Your kids can help steer your ‘floating hotel’ and wave to the local children heading off to school. Keep an eye out for the local birdlife along the way, egrets and kingfishers are commonly spotted in the backwaters. More family adventures include kayaking through these waterways alongside dugout canoes with farmers transporting their produce.

Tips for traveling in India with kids

Whichever family trip destination in India you choose, there are always some things to be aware of and bear in mind when traveling with kids.

  • Allow for delays, especially in the big cities, where the traffic has to be seen to be believed. Getting from one place to another always takes longer than you expect, and trains become fully booked almost as soon as tickets become available, so book train travel as early as possible.
  • India is chaotic to say the least, infamous for its ever-jostling crowds, incessant honking, haggling, selfie requests, and bureaucracy. To balance this, you need to ensure that the place where you stay is an oasis away from the chaos. This will give you all a breather and much needed time out.
  • Note that it’s unusual to find hotels with rooms housing two double beds, and interconnecting rooms are not common either. More likely you will find rooms with one double bed and a maximum of one extra bed allowed per room. Families with more than one child will usually have to book two hotel rooms. Some hotels are happy for a child to share a bed with their parents. Look for somewhere that includes breakfast too, so you don’t have to head out early with hungry kids.
  • Remember it can be brutally hot and there is often no shade, so carry an umbrella and ensure you always have enough drinking water. Staying in a hotel with air-con is a must and a swimming pool is always a winner with children.
  • It’s dirty everywhere, with litter commonplace, and the dreaded ‘Delhi Belly’ is high on the list of concerns of many travelers. This worry is compounded by the fact young kids love touching everything – from the walls to their feet, to high-fiving strangers – so carrying hand sanitizer at all times is essential.
  • Most kids are fussy eaters and spicy food is an acquired taste, but at most Indian restaurants the chef can make a plain omelette or plain rice, and your kids will probably love the naan bread. In tourist areas you can usually find fries and pizzas and pasta, and there’s always a fruit stall nearby (just stick to fruits you peel).

If you and your little ones are brave and adventurous enough, India family tours allow you the chance to experience incredible adventures like nowhere else on the planet. Filled with spectacular sights, beautiful landscapes, fun activities, delicious food and much more, there is a lot for families to see and do in India. In fact, traveling in India with kids will be one of the most eye-opening trips you will ever take as a family.

Northern India Family Holiday

10 days | tour india and visit agra’s opulent taj mahal.

family trip from india

Take the whole family on an unforgettable adventure to India, a place full of colourful characters, delicious cuisine and remarkable landscapes. Get the most out of this diverse subcontinent by tasting flavourful curries in Delhi, strolling through the Pink City of Jaipur, and exploring the depths of the lush Ranthambhore National Park. Of course, no visit to India is complete without gazing upon the Taj Mahal, an epic monument to love and one of the finest examples of Islamic architecture in the world. With plenty of cultural highlights for the adults and exciting activities for the kids, this trip is bound to excite, enchant and inspire memories to last a lifetime.

Trip overview

  • India is bursting with colour, alive with people, dripping with the powerful smells of spice and incense. Immerse yourself with the sights and smells as you walk through the markets and bazaars.
  • Nothing compares to seeing the Taj Mahal it in person in the glowing morning light. It will definitely make sense why this 17th century masterpiece has attracted worldwide acclaim.
  • Explore through the depths of the Ranthambhore National Park – it’s like the Jungle Book has been brought to life! Keep your eyes peeled for gazelle, antelopes and the stealthy Bengal tiger.
  • Discover the traditional and vibrant city of Jaipur, full of colourful ornate buildings, and understand why its known as the Pink City.
  • Experience a special stay in a 17th-century palace in Alsisar – with its grand courtyards and colourful arcades, you (and your kids!) will feel like royalty.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Positive Change for Marine Life. Donations help them to nurture ocean health with community-led conservation initiatives that inspire coastal restoration, sustainable fishing practices and waste-management.
  • This trip involves some long bus and train rides, which can be tiresome but offer a quintessential experience of the Indian landscape and people.
  • Sleeper trains are clean and air-conditioned and a great way to travel long distances while still getting maximum time in each place. Beds are padded berths with sheets, pillow and blanket provided (although some families prefer to bring their own sleeping sheet).
  • We visit a number of temples on this trip, which requires a certain level of modesty. Please bring clothes that cover the arms and pants/skirts that go past the knees. A light scarf is also a good idea for covering shoulders and arms when it’s hot.

Namaste! Welcome to India. Begin your adventure in the one of the oldest and most interesting cities in the world, Delhi. There will be a welcome meeting today at 1 pm – you can arrive any time before, as there are no activities planned. After a chance to meet the rest of the families and buy some lunch, take a guided sightseeing tour to explore the contrasts of Old and New Delhi. In the narrow streets, everything competes for space – squeeze through the Old City’s fortified walls on the way to Jama Masjid. Dominating the city’s skyline, this mosque is a social hub as much as a place of worship, and a fascinating insight into Delhi’s way of life. If you’d like, why not catch a rickshaw through the throbbing streets, packed with buses, trucks, people and cows, on the way to the brilliantly coloured Red Fort. Then, leave the crowds behind and breathe a little easier in contrasting New Delhi – broad, tree-lined avenues, and former monuments to British power. Visit the main sights – Parliament House, President House, and India Gate, before returning to the hotel.

  • Florence Inn or Similar (1 night)

There are no meals included on this day.

  • Delhi - Visit to the Jama Masjid Mosque
  • Delhi - Leader-led Old Delhi walking tour
  • Delhi - India Gate

It’s very important that you attend the welcome meeting as we will be collecting insurance details and next of kin information for each member of your family. If you are going to be late please let your travel agent or hotel reception know. Ask reception or look for a note in the lobby for more information on where the meeting will take place.

Rise early to catch the morning sun and a train to Agra (approximately 3 hours). The city alternated with Delhi as the capital of the Moghul Empire, and it still grips to its glory days, inextricably linked with the most famous of India’s rulers. When you arrive, take some time to relax after the early start until mid-afternoon, before heading out to see the city’s big hitters. Agra’s not just all about the Taj Mahal, it’s also home to one of the finest looking forts in India, a Friday Mosque and royal tombs. Sitting along the banks of the Yamuna River, Agra Fort is part stronghold, part palace and part prison. Built in 1565 by Emperor Akbar, it was converted to a palace by Emperor Shah Jahan, and it eventually became his jail when he lost power. Enter the dark red sandstone fort by crossing the (now empty) crocodile-infested moat. Search through throne rooms and tiny but incredibly decorated mosques and climb to the top to get your first tantalising glimpse of the Taj across the river.

  • Raj Mahal Palace or similar (1 night)

Not many people like really early mornings, but this one is definitely worth it. Get up before the sun to see it rise over the Taj Mahal. Watch the iconic building bathed in early morning light. Many people believe it to be the most perfectly proportioned building ever constructed; at first glance it appears to be simply white marble, but closer inspection reveals that the surface is inlaid with semi-precious stones that form stylised flowers and bowers. This is truly magical. Best known as a monument to love and loss, the Taj is a beautiful example of Mughal architecture surrounded by trimmed English gardens. Next, head east and pass the Kos Minar medieval milestones, which point the way to the abandoned city of Fatehpur Sikri (approximately 2 hours). Deserted after only a few years because there wasn’t enough water, the incredibly well preserved 16th century royal complex is a haven of courtyards, pavilions, ornamental gardens, the striking Jama Masjid mosque, and home to the intricately carved Rumi Sultana palace. Continue on to Sawai Madhopur and Ranthambhore National Park (approximately 2 hours) – the 'Jungle Book' brought to life!

  • Raj Palace Resort or Similar (1 night)
  • Agra - Taj Mahal
  • Fatehpur Sikri - Guided tour

Ranthambhore National Park is one of the premier national parks of India – a place where nature has reclaimed ancient fortresses and temples, and that is also is teeming with wildlife to spot. You will make a couple of game drives during your stay here, with hopes of getting a sighting of the majestic Bengal tigers that survive among the ruined forts and temples and stalk through the jungle. Game drives take place early in the morning and in late afternoon, as this is when animals are most active. Even if the tigers are being too stealthy, the park is filled with other animals like gazelle, hyenas, sloth bears, crocodiles, jackals, three types of antelope (nilgai, sambar and chital) and leopards to watch out for.

  • Ranthambhore NP - Wildlife safaris

Please note that during the hot summer months, Ranthambhore National Park is closed between 1 July and 30 September each year. Therefore, during this time, we alter our itinerary and take the opportunity to visit the nearby Swai Mansingh Sanctuary instead. A wide variety of interesting wildlife resides here, including hyena, sloth bear, wild boar, panther and cheetah. While there is the rare chance to spot a tiger, this should not be expected. An exciting wildlife walk and a game drive will be included here.

Intrepid requires a scanned copy of your passport bio page at time of booking to secure a permit for your Ranthambore National Park visit. Authorities at Ranthambhore NP follow a strict booking process whereby permits are issued on a first come first serve basis. If we do not receive correct passport details in time we cannot guarantee you on the tiger safari.

Head northwest to the dazzling pink city of Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan (approximately 4-5 hours) in time for lunch. In the afternoon, head to the Jantar Mantar observatory – a favourite with children. The observatory houses a collection of nineteen architectural astronomical instruments built by the Rajput king Sawai Jai Singh II and was completed in 1734. In the afternoon, you will have some free time as a family. Perhaps take a swim in the hotel pool or wander through the Pink City’s streets, busy with camels, motorbikes, rickshaws, and traditionally dressed Rajput men wearing colourful turbans and sporting magnificent moustaches. Enjoy a free evening in Jaipur tonight. Perhaps hit the streets of the old town for raj kachori chaat – a big fluffy chaat served with chutney, yoghurt, chilli and potato - and cool off afterwards with a lassi from Lassiwala on MI road, Jaipur's oldest and most famous lassi shop. Look out for camels carting goods and be careful of the monkeys climbing wires overhead!

  • Hotel Mahal Khandela or similar (1 night)
  • Jaipur - Jantar Mantar Observatory
  • Jaipur - Hand Block printing class - Free

Visit the sprawling City Palace, once home to the Maharaja: an amazing complex that's home to various colourful courtyard gates, fascinating museums displaying royal costumes and weaponry. The palace continues to be a royal residence even after the Jaipur kingdom merged with the Indian Union in 1949. Then it’s on to the distinctive five-storied Hawa Mahal, or Palace of Winds, with its detailed honeycombed facade filled with concealed windows. The impressive structure makes it the most photographed building in the country, after the Taj. Royal maidens once watched the streets below through the fabulous jali (lattice screens), which hid them from prying male eyes. Today snake charmers and fortune-tellers ply their trade below the same hideaway. The rest of the day is free to explore or to find a spot to people watch and relax.

  • Jaipur - City Palace
  • Jaipur - Hawa Mahal (Palace of the Wind) - INR200

Climb the twisting roads of the Aravalli Hills and round the final bend to see the massive Amber Fort loom into view (approximately 30 minutes). Pass Maota Lake before turning uphill, past the elephant stables, to Jai Pol (Victory Gate). This is the ancient capital of the Kachhawaha Rajputs, who gave their loyalty to Moghul overlords. From the spoils of war, they gradually built a fabulous complex of royal rooms, which now make up the Amber Fort. The fallen empire’s legacy, the opulent palace is packed with elaborate rooms of lavish murals, frescoed arches and delicate jali work. Don’t miss the sparkling Mirror Palace, covered floor-to-ceiling in thousands of reflective tiles, looking down over the picturesque Moata Lake. Later in the day, head deeper into the princely state of Rajasthan. Then, leave the city behind and travel to the relaxed village of Nawalgarh (approximately 3 hours). Catch glimpses of life in the most colourful of India’s regions – sari-clad women carrying terracotta pots of water, bangles tinkling as they walk. Take a walk around the village and meet the locals before continuing to your final stop for the day, the small town of Alsisar (approximately 1.5 hours).

  • Alsisar Mahal or Similar (1 night)
  • Nawalgarh - Haveli Museum

The semi-arid village of Alsisar is full of legendary stories with its many hand-painted havelis. This morning, join your leader on a walk around the village to discovery these beautiful and ornately decorated buildings, and perhaps say hello to some of the local residents along the way. The rest of the afternoon is yours to explore this peaceful town or enjoy your splendid accommodation, the Alsisar Mahal, built in the 17th century. With its grand courtyards, colourful dining arcades and heritage rooms it will certainly be a highlight of your trip. And the kids will love the pool!

After breakfast this morning, leave the countryside behind and get back into the beating rhythm of Delhi by mid-afternoon (approximately 9 hours). Use the rest of the day however you like. Practice your bargaining skills in Chandni Chowk in the maze of shops and kiosks that sell everything imaginable, buy local crafts straight from the hands of the artisan in Janpath market, or gobble down street chaats (Indian snacks, including deep fried fritters and flatbread). Hear the story behind the man at Gandhi’s house, see one last ancient structure at Qutb Minar, or relax in the Mughal gardens. No doubt you’ll like to get together in the evening with your group leader and the other families for a special dinner. Your leader will have great recommendations on where to eat.

  • Delhi - Connaught Place Market - Free

There are no activities planned for the final day and you are able to depart the accommodation at any time. If your family would like to spend some more time in Delhi, why not book into an Urban Adventures tour? The Made In Delhi Shopping Tour takes you to the best markets to shop, so you can find some bargains. Better yet, it’s child-friendly! Find out more information at We would be more than happy to organise additional accommodation for you (subject to availability).

Luxury Family Trips to India

family trip from india

Famous for being one of the world’s most colourful, energetic and diverse countries, India is the perfect destination for a luxury family vacation.

Whatever your requirements, Jacada’s expert travel designers will ensure that your itinerary is carefully planned and that you are accompanied by a private guide who will not only provide insight into the fascinating history and culture of this incredible country, but will make sure every transfer, train journey and tour runs smoothly.

Home to majestic palaces, soaring mountain peaks, emerald green waterways, and national parks filled with wildlife, there really is something for everyone in the family.

The major cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Jaipur and Jodhpur are frenetic and exciting and a wonderful place to experience the traditional and modern ways of life side by side. Expert private guides will bring to life the incredible monuments scattered across these cities, but just as fun is weaving your way in and out of the colourful local markets and winding through narrow lanes that throng with bicycles, rickshaws and cows.

The south of India is the perfect place to relax and enjoy some quality time together as a family. Distinctly different to the north, this is a landscape of serene waterways and  lush rice paddies. Glide along the canals and rivers on a houseboat, enjoy a cooking class where you’ll learn how to get the blend of spices just right, and spend some time unwinding in the rolling green hills of the tea country.

For active families the possibilities are endless, from hiking through the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas and horse riding in the desert to cycling through the Aravalli Hills. Not only does this show off some of India’s incredible natural beauty, but it brings you close to some of the more remote communities that live outside the country’s main metropolises.

Perhaps the most exciting part of any family trip to India is getting close to its incredible wildlife. Ranthambore and Bandhavgarh are home to beautiful Bengal tigers while JAWAI safari camp in the middle of the wide-open wilderness is your best bet for tracking the elusive leopard. Pretty much everywhere you go, you’ll be greeted with the sight of mischievous monkeys swinging between buildings on the lookout for juicy fruit to steal from the local market.

Looking for more inspiration? Here are a few experiences you can enjoy on a visit to India with your family.

  • Visit Varanasi, India’s spiritual capital on the banks of the Ganges
  • See the iconic domed mausoleum of the Taj Mahal at sunrise
  • Explore India’s largest salt pan at Rann of Kutch Salt Plains
  • See where one of the world’s favourite drinks is produced at the tea fields in Darjeeling
  • Marvel at the great Indian one horned rhinoceros in Kaziranga National Park
  • Visit the capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur and experience its cultural delights
  • Explore the central religious site of the Sikhs, the Golden Template in Amritsar
  • Admire the palaces and forts of the White City, Udaipur
  • Take the family on a Tiger safari in Ranthambore National Park

Our top example family trips to India

Jacada Travel (as well as their partner in India, Banyan Tours) put together an extraordinary three week tour of India for my wife and I. We've been back home for two weeks now and I still can't stop thinking about what an amazing experience we had. Our guides, particularly Sameer who was with us in Rajasthan, were really able to…

Jacada provided my family a wonderful tour in India. Our guides in each city were awesome and knowledgeable! We learned history, culture, saw some beautiful art and ate delicious meals. The people are beautiful! Jacada was able to customize our tour from our own starting point and we had a fantastic trip!

Jacada planned a glorious 11-day trip to northern India--and kept us safe and healthy! We are in our 70s, and unafraid to travel with Jacada. (Jacada also took us on a marvelous trip to Machu Picchu and the Galapagos a year ago.) First, we had an unimaginably excellent India guide--Mangit. He is incredibly knowledgeable, thoughtful, caring, and funny. I use…

In a word - amazing. ALL of the recommendations - from the hotels, to the tours and sights, and most especially to the fantastic guides, drivers and handlers who made it all so seamless and engaging on the ground in India- made this a truly memorable experience. And of course a special thank you to Rachel O'Leary and Gilda Tang…

We have just returned from a wonderful trip to India. Keith and Gilda from Jacada organized the tour, helping with recommendations for hotels and tours at each of our stops. I cannot find superlatives good enough to describe the trip - the Taj Lake Palace, the Umaid Bhawan, Sher Bagh, the Imperial, and the two Oberoi properties were stupendous. The…

The best time to visit is during the dry, cool season between October and March. National parks in central and northern India are open from October until the end of June with sightings better from February onwards when there is less foliage. The dry season is also ideal for those wanting to trek in the far north.

Family Trip To India: The Ultimate Travel Guide

The idea of traveling to India with kids can be quite daunting for some families. Hearing about the loud and crowded cities, pungent smells, colors, and cultural shocks aren’t helpful to convince you to plan a trip. That’s where personal and family travel blogs come to the rescue. Traveling to India with kids has been one of the most magical and enlightening experiences we’ve ever done. In fact, India has a very special place in our hearts since both AJ and Natasha were born here. Natasha was raised here too. There is truly is no other place like India in the world, and we could not be more supportive and encouraging for other families to come and explore this extraordinary country we’re lucky to have on the planet. That being said, it’s nevertheless important to be well prepared and equipped to undertake an adventurous family trip to India.

Although it’s one of the most amazing countries we’ve been to, it can be quite intimidating and overwhelming to navigate it. Figuring out where to go and what to do, how to get around, figure out the weather, the food and where the best and safest areas to stay in are can be a bit tricky. Fortunately, this post addresses everything you need to know to plan your way around India with kids strategically and effectively to create the most delightful trip. Welcome to the complete guide to traveling to India with kids.

Make your next family vacation a breeze

Travel with your kids now and build amazing memories as a family! Get our book, written by parents just like you, that will guide you all the way.

family trip from india

When to Visit India

The first thing to keep in mind is that India is an enormous country. Besides being large, it is composed of a wide variety of altitudes, ecosystems, and climates. This means that throughout the year, one place in India will be likely to have completely different weather conditions than another. Make sure to take this into account when planning your itinerary. You definitely want to pack efficiently and ensure your travels are not badly affected by drastic, surprising changes in weather. 

Visit India in Spring with kids

Although we’ve said that India is likely to vary in weather, the entire country seems to be in agreement that spring is the time where temperatures and humidity levels rise to the highest they can get. Delhi, one of the most visited places in India, can become as hot as 40°C (104°). Because of the unbearable heat, we don’t recommend planning a family trip to India over spring. It’s likely that you’ll only want to stay indoors or in all-inclusive hotels with constant access to the pool. But India has a lot more to offer than spending the entire time between four walls!

On the other hand, spring is indeed the time to visit India if you want to witness one of the largest and most famous festivals in the world – Holi.  Known as the festival of color, Holi celebrates the end of winter. Celebrated over a week, an incomparable sense of enthusiasm and joy fill the streets, with people covering themselves in colorful powders, building bonfires and relishing on the best Indian delicacies you can imagine. If you have the chance to visit India during this festival, you can be sure that it will be a family trip you’ll never forget, or even come close to comparing. 

Summer in India with kids

Visiting India in the summer is something we don’t recommend doing at all. On top of the high temperatures and humidity, it tends to be monsoon season. This means that you’ll most likely be faced with days of heavy rain, limiting your sightseeing plans quite significantly. Besides its large cities, some of the most parts of India are in rural areas; which will be almost impossible to visit due to roads being easily flooded and the risk of landslides. It will be difficult to move around in a car as well. Overall, it’s quite an inconvenient time for families to visit because of the poor weather conditions and low chances of mobility. 

On the other hand, summer is when the tourist season is at its lowest, so you’ll find it easier to find more budget-friendly options. If you’re interested in visiting, we suggest you stay more towards the Indian countryside, where the hill stations are. 

Fall in India with kids

Although it’s the start of the peak tourist season, autumn is definitely the best time to plan a family trip in India. By autumn, the rain has died down all over the country, while the heat stays pleasurable and easier to handle. During the months of October and November, Diwali, one of the biggest festivals in the world, takes over India. The word  ‘Diwali’ comes from “a series of lights”, and intends to celebrate the victory of good over evil. Entire streets and homes are illuminated using clay lamps, giving the illusion that the entire landscape is covered in gold. 

This is certainly one of the most breathtaking ways to experience India with kids, and have a clearer idea of the true essence of this wonderful country. 

Winter in India with kids

Winter is still a good time to travel to India, but you might need to be a bit more strategic. It’s the season where most weather contrasts are made evident throughout the country. For example, Delhi can go as low as 5°C (41°F) and as high as 25°C (77°F). The north of the country tends to remain a little bit cooler, but nothing more dramatic. The south and coastlines have quite pleasant temperatures and are perfect options if you’re looking to celebrate Christmas or New Year’s abroad. Most tourists travel to Goa for the holidays, a popular destination by the beach. 

On the other hand, we don’t recommend that you don’t spend much time in Delhi during winter. It has a tendency to worsen in terms of air pollution, which would risk resulting in your children or family members getting sick. 

Places to Visit On A Family Trip To India

Places to visit in India with kids - Delhi

Delhi is India’s capital. It’s a massive metropolitan area that lists it as one of the most populated cities in the world. In India, it acts as an important center that concentrates modern and traditional architecture, an array of historical and cultural heritage, and limitless different types of art. It tends to be the first place families come to visit when traveling to India because it is easy to find routes and transport towards other destinations. 

To first time travelers, Delhi can seem like a quite intimidating and loud city to visit with kids. But the most traveled city in India, you can be sure that you’ll have no trouble finding your way around. Especially after reading a little more about the city on guide books or blogs like ours available here: 

In Delhi, there are dozens of amazing things to do and places to visit with kids. Historical and cultural heritage sites like Swaminarayan Akshardham, Humayun’s Tomb and Qutub Minar can entertain them for hours. They all have enchanting stories of the past to tell! There are also parks and museums like the National Railway Museum. It’s also very successful in keeping the excitement for discovery alive.

Read more: See our travel guide for a family trip to Delhi with kids.

Places to visit in India with kids - Rajasthan

Called the Land of Kings, Rajasthan is one of the most splendid and astonishing states in the country. It’s saturated with color, ancient Indian luxury, the most ravishing authentic cuisine, and music. Some would even say it’s the state with most historical and cultural value; with countless majestic and royal palaces. Something peculiar about Rajasthan is that it has some of the most interesting and gripping cities in the entire country. Filled with colors, tradition, music, and royalty, you can expect to see nothing less than exceptional. 

Jaipur, also known as “The Pink City”, is the capital, and largest city of Rajasthan. We have to admit – if you were to visit only one city in the entire state, this would be the one. Some of the best palaces and forts you can find in India are found in this city alone! Make sure to prioritize visiting City Palace, the Amer forts and Hawa Mahal. Not only will they leave the entire family in awe, but they’ll help build the most incredible memories. In Jaipur, take time to explore and dig around the best markets and bazaars. There’s no doubt you’ll find the best souvenirs to take home with you. From handmade sandals to striking traditional saris, we promise that Jaipur shopping will not disappoint. 

Read more: See our travel guide for a family trip to Jaipur with kids .

Nicknamed as the “Blue City”, Jodhpur is another of Rajasthan’s gem cities. As you could probably imagine, Jodhpur gets its name from its blue buildings and houses. From a bird’s eye view, it looks like a blue oasis in the middle of the desert! Since it’s located in the middle of the state and a popular tourist destination, Jodhpur is very easy to reach. We recommend that as a family you visit the Mehrangarh Fort first. The look on your children’s faces as they see the city from above is priceless…although seeing the fort from down below is almost as impressive. Otherwise, strolling around the old town and getting lost in merchant markets, guesthouses, and food stalls is the best way to get a true sense of the bustling vibrant life of locals. 

Another of Rajasthan’s iconic cities that should make it in your list of places to visit on a family trip to India is The Golden City, Jaisalmer. What makes this city so unique is how it appears to be buried in endless waves of golden dunes and castles. Besides visiting the famous Jaisalmer Fort, another of the most recommendable things to do in this stunning city of India with kids is to spend a couple of nights in the desert. There are many tours to choose from which offer exciting camel rides across the dunes and a luxurious camp setting in the middle of the desert. For the most magical nights under the stars and ravishing Indian food, Jaisalmer is one of the best places to go on a family trip to India.

In contrast to Jaisalmer, Udaipur is known as the City of Lakes and is nothing short of spectacular. With a floating palace and stunning pieces of architecture at every corner you turn, you don’t need much convincing to know that Udaipur is one of the must-see places in India. 


For kids, Rajasthan has a very special attraction. Ranthambore National Park is the largest and most reputable tiger reserve in the entire country. It gives people all over the world the chance to experience India’s wildlife, and see the iconic Indian tiger every day. This park is often considered to be the highlight of the entire trip to India, so you simply can’t skip it!

Agra and Taj Mahal

Places to visit with kids - Taj Mahal

Agra owes its name of the City of Love to the Taj Mahal, the jewel of India and one of the seven wonders of the world. The Taj Mahal is the result of a wonderful love story. The Mughal emperor Shah Jahan built it in memory of his late wife as a sign of appreciation and love in the early 1600s. The best way to understand the true story and cultural significance of this globally-loved monument, we recommend hiring a guide or joining a guided tour. There are hundreds of details and secrets buried in the history of the Taj Mahal, many of them only being revealed by the locals and local guides who have deeply studied it. 

You can imagine, of course, that this is among the best attractions to go to on a family trip to India. It will definitely act as the highlight of your trip, with memories that will last forever. Upon arrival, you will be issued with shoe covers to keep the grounds clean, so don’t be surprised when being handed shower-cap looking things. Keep in mind that it is strictly forbidden to bring in any food. Security is very serious about this, and any food item taken from you will be confiscated. Other than that, you’ll be happy to hear that children under 15 years old have free entrance!

Banaras – The Eternal City

Places to visit in India with kids - Banaras

By now you could probably tell that India has many names for its cities. This city, often known as Banaras, was officially renamed as Varanasi in the 1990s and is also referred to as the Eternal City. This is the most thrilling city to see in India with kids. It’s vibrant, loud, colorful and “the” place to see the most beautiful and unique ceremonies and festivals. 

People know Varanasi as the most spiritual city in India. When people think of spirituality, they normally think of peace, quiet and calmness. But in this city, spirituality comes in the form of music, intensity and a strong sense of community. Especially during the Diwali festival, the city’s spectacle of lights looks as if it came from a dream. However, if you miss the festival you mustn’t worry. There is a ritual performance ceremony at the famous Dasaswamedh Ghat. It gets filled with the most incredible music and colors, and the feeling of togetherness in the air will feel like nothing else in the world. Ironically, during the day, the Ghats steps overlooking the water is the best spot in the city to get some rest and peace from all the flamboyant chaos happening in the background.

We do suggest that you visit the Holy City when your children are a little older and are able to process and deal with crowds and noise. It will make the trip a lot smoother and enjoyable for you and your kids!

Himachal Pradesh

Places to see in India with kids- Himachal Pradesh

Himachal Pradesh is one of the best places to visit in India with kids. It’s quite different from the image people usually have of India. Located in the Western Himalayas, the weather is cold. But it’s eager to leave you in awe by the spectacular natural views. Seeing the immense mountains bathe in the colors of the sunset is one of the most striking scenes in India. Make sure you consider it on the list of places to go to during plan a family trip in India.

Feeling excited to discover someplace completely out of the typical tourist route? visiting Himachal Pradesh is an excellent option. There are many adrenaline-filled tours like kayaking, rafting, and jeep tours. You can even meet their iconic hairy beasts, the Yaks. When visiting Himachal Pradesh, we strongly suggest visiting the capital, Shimla. Shimla is an exquisite town that stretches along on a ridge of 12 km. Only pedestrians are allowed to walk on the main streets! It can become quite hard to believe it’s even India! Previous visitors have described Shimla as a breath of fresh air and peacefulness. On the other hand, make sure to peer through its bazaars…those never fail to be exciting and vibrant.

One place you have to see in Shimla is the Jakhoo Temple. Located at the very top, this temple is dedicated to the worship of the Monkey God. It’s famous for its giant red statue of Hanuman, and the incredible view of the town from above the grounds. However, your kids will be most impressed by the mischievous monkeys roaming and jumping about all over the place. Make sure to not have any food items or valuables within reach! The monkeys are not shy, and will take them from you!

Places to travel in India with kids - Kerala

The state of Kerala is one that you should definitely travel to when exploring India with kids. It’s most distinguished for its beautiful network of canals and ghats containing endless fields of coffee, tea and spice plantations. There are many must-do things to see and do in Kerala with kids. The capital, Kochi, is always a good starting point for Kerala. It will take you back years into the Portuguese colonial period. You can see great contrasts of colonial and traditional houses, bungalows and buildings, as well as temples and churches. However, what stands out the most is the Chinese fishing nets touching the water. If you ask nicely, you’ll even be able to help toss a net yourself! 

Alleppey is quite the star of the show when it comes to Kerala. It’s a wonderful area consisting of beautifully intertwining lagoons and canals that navigate along the rustic side of Kerala. The best way to explore them is through houseboat rides. They will let you see Indian rural, quiet life in its most authentic form. When visiting India with kids, you simply cannot skip on booking a houseboat trip like this. There are many businesses on the spot or online that will be happy to take you around!

Make sure you also visit Munnar, a hill station in the Western Ghats of Kerala. It’s perfect to see what seem to be tea plantations that spread endlessly over the horizon. It’s an ideal place for a family trip to India since it shows what India is most famous for in the world; tea.

Havelock Island, Andaman

Places to visit to India with kids - Havelock Island

If you’re looking for a beach getaway destination when planning your family trip to India, there really isn’t a better place than Havelock Island. Located in India’s Andaman Islands, Havelock is the perfect place for spending time outdoors either resting on the paradisiac beaches or discovering the world that lives underwater.

The best beaches are Elephant, Vijayanagar, and Radhanagar; each proving to be unique and beautiful in its own way. Some of the best things to do on these jaw-dropping beaches of India with kids is to snorkel, go on sunset boat rides, submarine trips, and scuba dive for those who are certified. This island is truly a success among children – you won’t regret taking the trip over.

The resorts and hotels are also very kid-friendly. They’ll offer you any experience you’re looking for: from something a little more on the local and understated side to full-on tropical luxury.

What to Pack with Travelling to India with Kids 

What to pack for India with kids

Whether you’re thinking of moving a lot around the country or staying in one spot, one of the things we found most useful was to pack light, and practically. There will be no space for you to bring “just in case” items, nor will there be enough energy to carry around extra weight. Here’s a list of essentials to pack when traveling to India with kids:

The first essential you should definitely fit into your suitcase is a first aid kit. It would really be terrible for someone in your family to become sick and feel unwell. You should be ready to face all kinds of challenges: Spicy food, hot temperatures, iffy water sources, air pollution, and mosquitos. Here is our take on the best travel first aid kit for India:

Breathable, loose-fitting clothing

India can get very hot and very humid. The best way to achieve this is by breathable, loose-fitting clothing. You can find great options at mountaineering, trekking or mountain climbing sports stores at home. But textiles and clothes sold at markets in India work perfectly well too. Locals rely on this type of clothing to get around their day, so we recommend purchasing a few pieces when you’re there. Indian clothes beautiful are beautiful as well, and are a good way to bring home a souvenir!

Long sleeve and long pants

Something important to take into account when traveling to India with kids is being comfortable. This includes far more than feeling safe and at ease in your clothes. It’s better to opt for breathable T-shirts, long sleeve shirts, long pants or long skirts. Avoid shorts or spaghetti-strap tops for modesty reasons, but also to protect yourself and your kids from the sun and being stung by bugs. 

It’s always handy to carry a long, flowy scarf with you, especially for moms, and slightly older daughters. You will sometimes need them to cover your head or shoulders when entering temples or other sacred sites.

Sneakers or trekking/sturdy sandals

When in India, you need to be prepared to spend a lot of your days walking on irregular sidewalks, roads and dirt roads. It’s very important to invest in good walking shoes that are light enough to wear in the sun, but that will not get damaged in the rain. It’s a good idea to also bring with a sturdy set of sandals to wear when it’s hotter outside, or when at the beach. Make sure your shoes are easy to remove and put on, since temples often require visitors to enter barefoot as a sign of respect.

Baby Carrier

The most popular places to visit in India are usually very crowded, and the streets aren’t the best for walking around with a stroller. To be honest, our stroller (GB Pockit) worked great on some streets but bringing a stroller can sometimes be more of a burden than helpful. We suggest that you should always be prepared for carrying your baby. If you’re still considering a stroller, read our post on the best travel stroller options.

Taking a baby carrier with you, and taking turns between the two parents to carry it throughout the day is a great way to get around. There are many options for baby carriers out there. It’s definitely an easier option than bringing a stroller. It will make planning a trip around the country a lot easier too. Local women tend to wrap their children around them too!


Here is a list of other miscellaneous things to pack that we recommend packing for your family trip in India:

Padlocks and chain: Although we don’t think of India as an unsafe or dangerous place, we find that it’s always better to add an extra layer of security wherever we travel. For long train rides or overnight trains, a lock can be very useful for when you want to take a nap or want to feel like your luggage is safer. Simply tie a lock around a train pole and your backpack to avoid it getting stolen or taken. Padlocks around the zippers are also helpful to reduce the chance of getting pickpocketed.  Toilet Paper: You don’t need to pack this from home, but it’s always a good idea to bring a roll or a few spare tissues to use in case there is none available.  Thermometer: A thermometer can be helpful to check your baby’s temperature every now and then. They’re especially helpful with younger children who struggle to get their words across, packing Canned/pot baby food: When traveling with younger children or babies in India, it can be quite challenging to find food for them that you sure will not cause them an upset stomach. We recommend you buy canned or pot baby food at the supermarket. Carry it around with you during the day, so you’re always prepared for snack time. If you’re traveling to a more remote location, it’s very important to be prepared and buy enough food to last you enough time.

What to Eat in India with Kids

What to eat in India with kids

We couldn’t speak more highly of Indian food. However, it’s true that kids might be a little more sensitive to drastic changes in food, strongly scented spices, and tastes. But here is a list of some of the best kid-friendly Indian food they can enjoy.

Samosas are a delicious Indian pastry with potatoes, onions, peas, and lentils, with an option to have mincemeat inside. They are very easy and fun to eat, and available anywhere. It’s a great snack to carry around the day as well, in case hunger strikes. 

An Indian staple. Biryani comes in over 40 different ways, but children will absolutely love any kind that sits on the table. The hypnotizing aromas and flavors of pepper, cardamom, onions, garlic, bay leaves, cilantro, and many more spectacular ingredients are so good they’re almost addictive! You can find biryani everywhere, making it the perfect go-to dish for kids in India.

Butter Chicken

Butter chicken is the most kid-friendly Indian curry. It’s not too spicy but seasoned enough to create a rich, flavourful sauce that is able to uplift anybody’s mood. It’s easy to make as well, so be prepared for your children to ask you for some when you return home!

For kids who don’t like to eat a lot, Tikkas are the perfect Indian meal. It’s normally eaten as a starter. Tikkas are marinated meat or paneer (delicious cheese for vegetarians) in yogurt and a combination of spices. Try it with an exquisite tamarind sauce or with cilantro and lemon wedges. 

Aloo Ka Paratha

You could think of Aloo Ka Paratha as Indian pancakes. However, they are savory and made out of potatoes. They are flavored using very simple ingredients like butter, ghee, and coriander. They’re perfect for younger children who are getting introduced to a wider diversity of solid food, but they’re equally as successful among everyone. It’s a great breakfast option if you’re looking to show your kids cultural differences around the world!

Bonus Tips – India with kids

Tips for traveling to India with kids

We’ve come up with a couple more tips and advice for traveling to India with kids that we think are useful, and will hopefully answer other any questions you have. 

Book a tour

For smooth travel with small children, book a tour. It’s as much of your holiday as it is theirs, right? If you want to keep enjoyment to the fullest while worrying about planning to a minimum, booking a tour is the best way to go. Of course, you don’t have to book a tour for the entire time you are there. But it may be a good idea to book one if you’re looking to explore a more rural or remote area for a few days. Transport, food, guides, and accommodation tend to be included in the price

Embrace the culture and the locals

We could not be more enthusiastic about encouraging you to mingle with the locals. India has some of the most outstanding, kind-hearted and hospitable people, and most of them will be more than happy to connect and get to know your own family and culture. There are often homestay accommodation options that will let you experience Indian culture, food, and values in the best way possible. Support local businesses by purchasing tours or handicrafts made by them, but also make sure to integrate with them when you think it’s appropriate. You never know the incredible stories they have to tell, and the unforgettable memories your kids can have by learning and playing with kids their age.

Learn About Vaccinations

Educate yourself about the types of vaccines you and your kids will need. The CDC has an extensive list of vaccines you should seriously consider before traveling to India with kids. Check it out!

Don’t Get Scared

Be aware that Western children get a lot of attention in India. There might be locals that want to take pictures, pinch cheeks and touch them, all with a good intention of course. But we encourage you to explain the situation to your children since it can be overwhelming but also ask the locals kindly to not touch/take pictures if you feel uncomfortable

Skip The Street Food

Even though the most amazing food in the world is Indian and we strongly encourage you to try it, we suggest that you stay away from food being cooked on the street. It’s a much option better to go to a restaurant and ask for street food there if you want to try it!

Only drink bottled water

We could not stress this point enough. Tourists do well at all drinking tap water and risk getting diarrhea or typhoid. Under any circumstance, only drink bottled water!

Don’t settle for the first price merchants give you when shopping in markets – items are most likely to be overpriced. We suggest that you negotiate until the price is around half or a third of what it initially was

Thank you for reading! We hope our tips, guidance, and advice help you get excited and prepared for your family trip to India. Nothing but treasured and magical moments are bound to come your way while exploring this extraordinary country. We’d love to know about any other tips you’ve found helpful when discovering India with kids! Comment down below to let us know.

Indian Family Kickstarts Mission Impossible Road Tour: Spread over 3 Continents, 57000 km & 55 Countries

Posted: 16 November 2023 | Last updated: 16 November 2023

Bengaluru: 15th November 2023: In a story that blends Ripley's Believe It or Not with Mission Impossible, Musaif Shaan Mohamed and his family have kickstarted their incredible adventure that could potentially earn them a place in the Guinness Book of World Records or the Limca Book.

Bengaluru-based Advocate Musaif Shaan Mohamed, known for his extensive road trips in India and neighboring countries, has crossed Dubai and is currently in Oman with his family on a Mission Impossible-style Road tour of 55 countries spread over 3 continents and 57000 km starting November 12th, 2023.

What makes this journey truly exceptional is that it includes not only Musaif but also his 62-year-old father, mother, sister, and his 6-month-old nephew, Wildan Ezlin Adaam. Musaif has traveled the length and breadth of India by road multiple times in the past 10 years and across Nepal, Bhutan, and Myanmar too!

Musaif, a legal professional and Chairman of Campus Continent, is also a motivational trainer who guides MBBS students seeking better growth prospects. Inspired by Jules Verne's "Around the World in 80 Days" from his school days, he nurtured the dream of traveling around the world, albeit in a slightly extended timeframe.

An Inspiring Tale of Determination:

Musaif's travel saga is a testament to determination and living life to the fullest. Over the years, his passion for travel grew, leading him to yearn for more adventure. His latest expedition commenced on November 12th this year from Dubai and is a journey that spans several countries, including Dubai, Turkey, Iran, England, Spain, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Portugal, and some rarely heard of exotic countries with beautiful landscapes such as Georgia, Albania, Romania, Kyrgyzstan, Moldovia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Latvia, Austria, Ireland, Russia, Tajikistan, and Kazakhstan. This incredible journey will conclude in India via China, China (Tibet), and Nepal next year.

Customized Ford Endeavor for the Family:

Recognizing the unique needs of his aged parents and an infant, Musaif made the thoughtful decision to customize his Ford Endeavor to make it an all-terrain SUV. A capable team from The Wrench Virtuoso having branches across India and Germany undertook the challenge of customizing the SUV to ensure the family's comfort, safety, and protection in varying weather conditions, be it rain, shine, hail, sandstorms, or snow. This custom-built vehicle took nearly three months to complete.

Notably, Mr. Nitin Dossa, Chairman, Western India Automobile Association (WIAA) and Federation of Indian Automobile Association (FIA) along with Mr. Edil Katrak flagged off the journey in Mumbai on the 26th of October 2023.

You name it, this SUV has it

Musaif's commitment to safety is evident as the vehicle includes a side tent, a main tent, foldable chairs, a portable toilet, and a kitchenette. Incidentally, an extended fuel tank is also built-in to ensure there are no stoppages. Every detail has been meticulously planned to ensure the family's well-being throughout their journey.

A Collaborative Family Effort:

Musaif's family plays a significant role in this extraordinary expedition. His sister, Dr. Muneefa A.K., a doctor, is responsible for caring for her son and her mother, Mrs. Nafeesath A.K. While Musaif and his father, Mr. Mohammed Kunhi K.M., a retired businessman, manage the driving and handle entry and exit formalities in each country.

For the family, this journey isn't just about sightseeing; it's a profound opportunity to learn about diverse cultures, history, and nature. It's a way to step out of their comfort zones and explore new places.

A Mission of Peace:

While the initial intention of their tour was exploration, their plan evolved in light of recent global conflicts. The primary goal of their world tour is to spread the message of living in peace and harmony.

This is the first part of the five-part series that the family has planned out. The 2nd part will witness Musaif covering 47 countries in Africa, followed by Australia in the 3rd part, and the 4th part of the globe will be the Americas and Canada.

Musaif and his family intend to share their experiences and promote the importance of peace in their travels, reinforcing the belief that travel has the power to transcend borders and foster understanding.
