“Travelling-it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”-Ibn Battuta
There’s a saying in India, “Atithi Devo Bhava”, which means “The Guest is God”. India is a vast country and best way to explore tradition and culture of country with Indian Family. Imperial Voyages offer to stay in every city with Indian Family. There’s nothing like Indian hospitality. Homestays offer an unparalleled opportunity to experience the incredibly diversity and charm of India. The Homestays are generally housing typical to the region. Our Homestays have separate rooms for guests with attached bathrooms within the house. In any case, guests can have as much privacy as they require and as much familiarity with the family as they like. Guests are invited to feel at home and there really is no hospitality like Indian hospitality. By staying at a homestay, you’ll be able to taste authentic Indian home cooked food, made to order. Some homestays even welcome their guests into their kitchen and let them watch and participate in the cooking process.
There’s no better way to celebrate India’s many festivals than with an Indian family. You’ll gain a deep appreciation and understanding of what the festival is about, as well as get to participate in the rituals associated with it.
