Post-conference tours

Many of our conference guests will have traveled a long way to join us in India. So we're offering a few special opportunities to share an adventure after TEDIndia -- a chance to see and enjoy the many treasures of the region. Join us!

Working with a top tour operator in India, we've designed four post-conference tours to astonishing places. Special guests will accompany the trips -- world-renowned adventurers, explorers and experts in related fields. A limited number of places are available, and it’s first come, first served. Don’t miss this great opportunity to experience this majestic region and the lasting relationships born out of sharing an adventure.
