Experience India through Delhi’s exciting chaos, Agra’s Taj Mahal, Ranthambore’s tigers and other animals, Jaipur’s fortress and palace, Osian’s desert, Jodhpur’s bazaars, and Udaipur’s lakeside beauty. It's all part of an unforgettable journey through Rajasthan.


This 14-day small group adventure ensures a group size of no more then 16, allowing you to enjoy the grandeur of iconic monuments in Delhi and Agra, along with the beauty of Rajasthan’s majestic hilltop forts. You'll even have a chance to ppot wildlife from a jeep in rugged Ranthambore National Park and delight in the region’s sumptuous cuisine.

On arrival in Delhi, meet up with your tour guide and have a welcome drink and a briefing. Visit colourful Old Delhi teeming with masses of people on its narrow, winding back streets. You'll also visit the beautiful Jama Masjid Mosque. Then head for New Delhi to see the impressive India Gate on the Rajpath, the Presidential Palace, and Humayan’s Tomb where a number of former emperors are buried. Enjoy a street food walk and a visit to a Sikh temple.

The following day travel by road to Agra, a name synonymous with the famous Taj Mahal. No visitor will be disappointed by the magnificence of this edifice and the surrounding gardens. It is an outstanding stark white marble monument built by Emperor Shah Jahan in 1630 as a memorial to his beloved wife who died during childbirth. Also visit Agra Fort, an imposing red brick structure built by Akbar the Great.

Your next stop, Ranthambore National Park is one of the largest and most renowned animal parks in the country. Originally the hunting grounds of the Maharajas of Jaipur, it is now a major wildlife sanctuary, especially famous for its tigers. Have a morning and a late afternoon safari in an open cantor (a large open top bus perfect for animal viewing). The park is home to other animals besides tigers such as leopards, hyenas, sloth bears, and exotic birds.

Continue the next day by road to Jaipur. On arrival, visit the interesting Jantar Mantar old time observatory. The following morning, travel to the imposing Amber Fort perched high on a hill overlooking the surrounding countryside. Returning to town, spend time at City Palace and see the Palace of Winds.

The next morning brings you to Nimaj, a traditional Rajasthan country town known for its handicrafts and where you will stay in a centuries-old palace. Enjoy a cooking demonstration here before visiting Osian, an ancient town on the Thar Desert, where you'll enjoy a camel ride over the late afternoon dunes and experience the amazing sunset. Visit the Bishnoi villages and see the local wildlife before your journey continues.

Jodhpur contains an old walled city and the imposing Mehrangarh Fort, perched high on a hill. Enjoy a stroll through the local bazaars and spice markets to experience some local flavour. Continue on by road to Udaipur, possibly India’s most beautiful city with an attractive location on three lakes. Sightseeing here includes the magnificent City Palace, a cruise on serene and Lake Pichola while viewing the palaces on the shores of the lake.
