    My grandmother heard that my friend and I are going to India next year and has decided this is a place she wants to visit. She asked me if there are senior tours in India? She's looking for something that is easy to do with not too much walking.

    Yes, there are tours and packages being offered by certain travel agencies that specifically cater to senior citizens. All you really need to do is go online and look. For a start, I highly recommend that you go to the official website of Senior Citizen Travel (Senior Citizen Travel | Discounts & Destinations for Senior Citizens) and look for listings there about travel itineraries in India for seniors. If you can't find one there, you can always contact any travel agency that promotes India tours and ask if they can redirect you to an agency that offers senior tours.
