Namaste and Welcome!

 Join us in 2018  on our Gala Signature Experience to India as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles historic journey to Rishikesh. Let’s make history together.

 

From “Rocky Raccoon” to “Revolution“…and every note in between, chances are “The White Album” is your favorite Beatles LP.         In the ’60’s it was the record of choice – the best selling one of the decade.

And the inspiration for most of these iconic songs: India.

“We sat in the mountains eating lousy vegetarian food…and we wrote all those songs. We wrote tons of songs in India….I did write some of my best songs while I was there. It was a nice scene.”            – John Lennon

 

The Beatles traveled to India in 1968 to study mediation with a guru. They came away with their heads full of tunes – what would become their most classic songs with unforgettable lyrics and magical imagery that turned the world upside-down. Perhaps we have never recovered. But who would want to? Take a trip inspired by the Beatles with that jet engine opening of “Back in the U.S.S.R.” and you’re gone…

Rishikesh, India…The Ultimate Pilgrimage for the Beatles Savvy…Making History in 2018

the ultimate pilgrimage

If you’re Beatles fans like us, you’ve traveled to Liverpool, birthplace of the Beatles. You’ve been to London’s Abbey Road Studios and famous zebra crossing. You’ve paid homage to Strawberry Fields in New York’s Central Park.  You’ve traveled countless miles and spent untold amounts to see Paul McCartney perform across the USA or around the globe. You’ve enjoyed Ringo Starr with his All Starr Band on tour for decades. You may have been one of the lucky screaming fans to see the Beatles on tour in the ’60’s. Perhaps you simply love their music – it changed your life. That’s plenty.

But chances are you have never been to India.

It’s the last and ultimate frontier for Beatles fans… and we are taking you there to see India through the eyes of fellow fans, music lovers, and India experts. We think you will enjoy what we have created…it’s the India of your dreams, the India of magic and mystery, the India that the Beatles brought to the world fifty years ago. The India you will love.

Designed for the Beatles Savvy

As India Destination Specialists and serious Beatles fans, we have created what we believe is an authentic, rich experience which follows the footsteps of the Fabs to Rishikesh…and beyond.  For our Gala Experience in 2018, we will even catch sunrise at the Taj Mahal to observe George Harrison’s 75th birthday. “Here Comes The Sun,” indeed. We’ve hand-crafted these special journeys to celebrate a magical time in Beatles history. And we are eager to share with you the glorious and amazing treasures of India which are befitting the rock star in us all.

“Rishikesh is an incredible place, situated where the Ganges flows out of the Himalayas in the plains between the mountains and Delhi. …Marharishi’s place was perched up on a hill overlooking the town and the river…”

– George Harrison

from “The Beatles Anthology”

Rishikesh

The “Gateway to the Himalayas,” Rishikesh is one of the holiest places for Hindus, and is known as a pilgrimage town.  It is nestled in the foothills of the mountains with the River Ganges running through. This revered place was the location of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s ashram where the Beatles came in 1968 to study Transcendental Meditation. The ashram is now claimed as part of the Rajaji Tiger Sanctuary. Rishikesh has become known as the Yoga capital of the world and a place where religious pilgrims, sadhus, and holy men and former hippies come to seek enlightenment.

Gala Experience Tour Dates, Itinerary and Pricing

“…I was starting to doze off in the car…It was fascinating seeing naked holy men and the kind of things you just don’t see unless it’s late-night Soho…It was quite bumpy, and the guys were chattering away, but in my twilight zone of sleeping it sounded like they were talking Liverpool. …It was a strange little twilight experience. It was a long journey.”

-Paul McCartney

from Barry Miles’ “Many Years From Now”

Contact

“John came, and Paul came after him, and then Richard [Ringo] followed with fifteen Sherpas carrying Heinz baked beans. There was also the world’s press. I pretended to be asleep all the way to Delhi so I didn’t have to talk to them.”

-George Harrison

from “The Beatles Anthology”

George, Taj Mahal, 1966
