Travelling on North India tours with children can be an incredible family experience. To make sure that a good time is had by all, there are a few things that you should consider. With some planning, everyone can enjoy the experience of India.

Make sure children are permitted with the group

If you are planning to go on a group tour, make sure that the group allows for children. Some will have age restrictions, some may be adults only, and some may be for 50+ only too. While you may want your child to experience other cultures and countries, not everyone on the North India Tours  will feel the same – which is why letting the agent know you are travelling with children is important.

Make sure that the agent knows the age of the children for booking

Not only will this enable the agent to make sure you are with one of the North India Tours that is welcoming to children, but they can make sure your accommodations are suitable for your child too. They may also have suggestions, depending on the age of the child, as to your planned destinations. Nappies are more easily found in some locations than others.

Things to watch out for – sun

The sun is the biggest thing to watch out for when travelling with children on the North India tours. No matter where you live, you won’t be prepared for the strength of the sun in India. Make sure that your children have their arms and legs covered, don’t just rely on sunscreen. You should also apply sunscreen even under cloths and reapply it several times a day.

Things to watch out for – heat

Especially when out on one of the North India tours you need to be mindful of the effect of the heat on children. Dehydration can happen very easily and it is essential that you carry water with you. Have your child drink several a small amount several times an hour, don’t wait until they say they are thirsty.

Things to watch out for – etiquette

Children are given a lot of leeway in India, but there are a few things that are expected from them. Respect for elders is very important, as is eating or greeting someone using the right hand only. While many of the cultural etiquette rules that govern clothing for adults don’t apply to small children, any child over the age of 8 should be dressed according to the common adult code.

Things to watch out for – animals

Many of the destinations included in the North India Tours will take you into populated areas that will also have a lot of animals roaming around. Monkeys and cows are sacred and allowed to roam free. Packs of dogs are also a common site. As they have no direct caretaker, many of these animals may not be used to children and can carry diseases. They are sacred, but that doesn’t mean you should pet them. Make sure your children understand this.
