India Gay travel tour operators

Considering traveling to India in a group sometime next year, but have a hard time finding a suitable (gay) tour operator.
Either the tours seem to cater to the budget traveler (Intrepid, Gate1), or in the case of LGBT to the very affluent (Abercromie & Kent, HETravel).
Is there nothing in between?

Thanks for the reply, but the tour operators mentioned under your link are all bespoke.
I am looking for an American based group tour operator.

We recently traveled to India, and worked with Serene Journeys, based in Delhi. The owner, Robin, is gay, and wonderful to work with. I highly recommend his services, as he knows the market quite well, and is great at assisting with booking as much or as little as you need, and crafting the trip to meet your interests and budget.

I am looking to join a existing tour, not to create a personal one.

I think there is an existing HIJRA's tour company you can join, it will be fun.

Coda and Zoom are possible tour companies

Several years ago I went to India on a tour organized by Coda Tours a company specializing in all-gay tours. It was a terrific trip. Well-organized, fascinating and great fun, with a great group of about a dozen guys. I recommend Coda wholeheartedly. It is offering a trip to India at the end of January 2016. Its website -- http://coda-tours.com/dev/types/2016/

I also recommend Zoom Vacations another specialist in all-gay travel. Three years ago I went with Zoom to Buenos Aires and was terrifically satisfied. I assume its India trip, scheduled for September 2016, will be as interesting, professional and as much fun as was my Buenos Aires trip. Its website -- http://www.zoomvacations.com/india

Definitely go to India. It is a marvelous and fascinating experience. Ive been back there 3 times after my Coda tour.

Regards,

Ollie

Serene Journeys, the only gay-owned authentic luxury travel in India. Our experience was simply great, and the owner amazing to work with.
