Two weeks to fully flavour the colour and pageantry of Rajasthan. Rich in history and legend, you will never forget this experience whether it be the palaces, the people or the culture.


Rajasthan is India’s largest state and occupies approximately 10% of the country’s land mass. With its colourful history and geographical beauty, it is no wonder why it has become so popular with visitors to India.

Delhi, the capital, is made up of Old and New Delhi.  Colourful Old Delhi teeming with masses of people has a very strong atmosphere with its narrow winding back streets. Also visit the imposing Red Fort, a city within a city and the important and beautiful Jama Masjid Mosque. Later it’s time to head for New Delhi to see the impressive India Gate on the Rajpath, the Presidential Palace, the ancient tower, the Qutub Minar and Humayan’s Tomb where a number of former emperors are buried.

Head next to Mandawa, once a trading post on the ancient caravan routes. It has an impressive 18th Century fort situated in the middle of the town. Visit some of the several forts and havelis (mansions) here.

Bikaner is a fortified city and is also known for its camel farms. During your say, you will visit a camel breeding and research centre.

Jaisalmer is known as the “Golden City” due to the yellow colours that pervade the city.
There is an imposing 12th Century medieval fortress. Visit some interesting Jain temples and the market place to see local craftsmen at work. Later take a trip on a jeep to view the impressive san dunes nearby.

Next travel overland to Jodhpur, an old walled city which has the huge and imposing Mehrangarh Fort perched high on a hill as a backdrop. Enjoy a stroll through the local bazaars and spice markets to experience some local flavour.  A jeep safari will take you to the Bishnoi villages to experience the desert and to see the local wildlife

Pushkar is a sacred town to the Hindus and is situated close to the Thar Desert. Just strolling around the city will give you a strong and lasting impression.

Next stop, en route to Jaipur, is Fatehpur Sikri, the Ghost city with a story. 

In Jaipur, travel to the imposing Amber Fort perched high on a hill overlooking the surrounding countryside and reached on the back of an elephant. Returning to town, spend time at CityPalace and the interesting Jantar Mantar old time observatory as well as viewing the Palace of Winds.

Then depart by road through the Indian countryside to Agra. The beautiful and spectacular Taj Mahal will be visited followed by Agra’s Fort.

Once you have experienced Rajasthan, you will bring back vivid memories never to be forgotten.
