This is a classic cultural tour.

Begin your epic adventure in chaotic Delhi, a city is awash with historical sites, museums and markets. Visit the wonderful walled city of Old Delhi and see one of its most impressive buildings, the Jama Masjid. Join the crowds to explore the bazaars. Everything is for sale here from fireworks and silks to copper and spices.

Next travel by train to the Mughal city of Agra. Learn the tragic love stories and mysterious legends of the Red Fort. Visit the iconic Taj Mahal – constructed from marble and inlaid with jade, crystal and sapphire, it must be seen to be believed.

A highlight of the journey is spent journeying to rural Rajasthan to stay at a royal family residence. Explore the village, meet villagers and chat with traditional craftspeople for a unique insight into local life.

Visit Jaipur next and the Amber Fort en route to Jaipur, Rajasthan’s ‘Pink City’. Jaipur is bursting at the seams with markets filled with jewellery, textiles and folk-based arts. After bargaining for souvenirs there’s an opportunity to laugh, shout and cheer with locals at a lively Bollywood film.

Next up is Ranthambore National Park where you can safari into the heart of the Indian bush to discover lakes and ruined palaces. Keep an eye out for deer, monkeys and the reclusive resident Bengal tigers.

Then journey through rural Rajasthan to Bundi. Admire stunning murals at the palace that presides over the town’s Brahmin-blue rooftops, explore the enchanting alleyways and experience life in remote Rajasthan.

Days 9-10 will be spent in Bijaipur where you can experience the best of both worlds in Bijaipur. Camp lakeside under the stars then spend the next night in the luxurious Castle Bijaipur.

Next iup is Udaipur where rolling hills, white marble palaces and lakes come together to make Udaipur the most romantic city in Rajasthan. Visit City Palace, one of the largest royal palaces in India.

Your last stop is Pushkar with India’s only Brahma temple and a holy lake, Pushkar is the place to rub shoulders with pilgrims and sadhus (holy men). For a change of pace, take a camel ride into the desert and witness a magical sunset among the dunes. In free time, shop, explore or head to a hilltop temple for views over the town. A hot chai at the top makes the effort worthwhile!

Finally arrive full circle on return to the hum of Delhi.
