Once checked in, the remaining evening is at your leisure.
Overnight in Delhi – you can choose your hotel and standards below
Welcome to your first morning in India! After breakfast, you will check out from your hotel for a comfortable drive to the city of love – Agra.
Agra is one of the best-known destinations on any India itinerary. The Mughal emperor Shah Jahan built the Taj Mahal as a monument of love to his wife, overlooking the Yamuna River. The city was once the capital of the Mughals, and their relics are scattered all over Agra. From the Taj Mahal to the massive Agra Fort; the delicately carved Itmad-ud-Daulah’s tomb to Akbar’s deserted majestic capital Fatehpur Sikri, Agra is home to some of India’s most famous sightseeing destinations.
Upon arrival into Agra, you will check-in to your hotel where the rest of the day will be at your leisure.
2 Nights in Agra – you can choose your hotel and standards below
This morning, head out with your English-speaking guide for a visit to the Taj Mahal, an architectural masterpiece. Construction began in 1631 and took some 22 years to complete. It is believed that more than 20,000 craftsmen worked around the clock on this magnificent edifice. The Taj Mahal’s exterior is made of marble and reflects rose and golden tints at sunrise and sunset, while it is dazzling white during the day. Visualising the Taj Mahal in any surroundings other than its paradoxical garden is impossible.
Later, visit the magnificent forts of the Mughal era—Agra Fort. When the Mughal Emperor Akbar established his supremacy in Northern India, he began his first architectural venture: rebuilding Agra Fort as a beautiful palace with marble and mosaic. Richly decorated, it was this fort that Shah Jahan spent his last years—confined by his son Aurangzeb. His private quarters have a magical view of the Taj Mahal across the river Yamuna. Today, this is a World UNESCO Heritage Site. Return to the hotel where the evening will be at your leisure.
After breakfast, check out from the hotel for a comfortable drive to the deserted city of Fatehpur Sikri – a city planned by Mughal emperor Akbar as his new capital. A 16th-century English traveller Ralph Fitch described it as ‘considerably larger than London and more populous.
After visiting Fatehpur Sikri continue your drive to Jaipur in your comfortable private car. Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan and one of India’s “Golden Triangle” cities. It is widely known as the “Pink City” because of its famous pink buildings in the old town.
After checking in to your hotel, the rest of your day is at leisure to explore this famous city’s many forts and palaces.
2 Nights in Jaipur – you can choose your hotel and standards below
Our Deluxe travellers will get an early start to experience the daily life of locals in Jaipur. They’ll visit morning markets, walk through narrow alleys, and witness famous snack sellers who have been in business for more than 90 years. They will also get the opportunity to participate in morning prayers at the Hindu temple before returning to the hotel for breakfast.
After breakfast at the hotel, head out with your private English-speaking guide to visit the magnificent Amber Fort and experience a blessing at the Shila Mata Temple. Amber Palace, also known as Amber Fort, is one of the most beautiful palaces in India. With its large ramparts, maze-like passages and cobbled paths, the fort overlooks Maota Lake, the primary water source for the Amer Palace.
In the afternoon, take a trip to the City Palace Museum to see an imposing blend of traditional Rajasthani and Mughal Art. The museum has robes of royal princes, carpets, an armoury and miniature paintings portraying court scenes, battle scenes, and processions.
Indulgence travellers will enjoy an exclusive private tour of the residential areas of the royal family, which is restricted to general visitors. There they will enjoy a cup of tea/coffee in one of the living rooms before taking memorable pictures of these beautifully decorated rooms where Princess Diana had once dined.
Next, visit the awe-inspiring Jantar Mantar, a stone astrological and astronomical Observatory and a photo visit to the Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds) before spending some time in the city’s crowded and colourful bazaars picking up your final souvenirs for the day.
Note: We do not encourage an elephant back ride at the fort where the animal is used as a taxi and made for walking on the concrete and stone paths. Instead, we can offer an optional exclusive interaction with rescued elephants at Dera Amer, where you can paint the elephant with natural colours that do not damage the skin, and bathe them before enjoying lunch from locally grown organic vegetables. More information can be found in your travel booklet if you would like to include this experience.
After breakfast, check out from the hotel for a comfortable drive to Pushkar’s picturesque little temple town.
Pushkar is one of the holiest centres of Hinduism and is the only place in the country with a temple dedicated to Lord Brahma – the creator of the universe.
After checking in, spend a day exploring this city famous for its temples as one of the five important pilgrimage centres a Hindu must visit in their lifetime.

After breakfast, check out from the hotel for a comfortable drive to the Blue city of Jodhpur.
Jodhpur, or the “Blue City,” is located on the edge of the Thar Desert. It was once the capital of a princely state founded by Rao Jodha in 1459 and is now Rajasthan’s second-largest city.
After checking in, spend the rest of the day exploring the city’s palaces, temples and gardens, or simply enjoy your hotel facilities.
2 Nights in Jodhpur – you can choose your hotel and standards below
This morning, start with a visit to Mehrangarh Fort, perched on a 150-meter-high hill, with your English-speaking guide. Rao Jodha founded it in 1459, but subsequent rulers of Jodhpur have also added to it over the centuries.
Next, visit the beautiful Jaswant Thada cenotaphs and the Jodhpur Fort. Maharaja Sardar Singh of Jodhpur State built the fort in 1899 in memory of his father, Maharaja Jaswant Singh II. The mausoleum is made of intricately carved sheets of marble that emit a warm glow when illuminated by the sun.
Return to the hotel where Comfort travellers will have the rest of the day at their leisure. Deluxe and Indulgence travellers will feel like royalty while they enjoy dinner at Khas Bagh, an ultra-chic oasis that offers a regal lifestyle in all its pleasures.
Dinner included for deluxe and indulgence
After breakfast, check out of the hotel for a comfortable drive to Ranakpur. Considered one of the holiest Jain sites in India, it boasts some of the most exquisite Jain temples in the country, famous for their intricate friezes and sculptures. The main Chaumukha (four-faced) temple was built in 1439 and is dedicated to the first Enlightened One, Adinatha Rishabdeva.
After seeing the marvellous marble-carved temples in Khajuraho, get comfortable and settled for your continued drive to Udaipur. Lush and green, Udaipur looks vastly different from the arid and mountainous landscapes seen across Rajasthan. After checking in at the hotel, spend the rest of the day at leisure.
2 Nights in Udaipur – you can choose your hotel and standards below
Meet your local English-speaking guide for a tour of the Udaipur City Palace and Jagdish Temple. Within the palace complex is the Jagdish temple, an ornately designed temple that is over four hundred years old. The beautiful carved pillars and ceilings and the temple spire that towers over all the other buildings in the vicinity make it an unmissable sight.
In the afternoon, embark on an exclusive boat cruise on Lake Pichola. The picturesque lake entranced Maharaja Udai Singh and inspired him to build Udaipur. Hills, palaces, temples, bathing ghats, and embankments surround the lake. On the lake, two island palaces, Jag Mandir and Jag Niwas (Lake Palace) are of breathtaking magnificence. Return to your hotel, where you can spend the rest of the day at leisure.
Breakfast will be served at the hotel, and the morning will be at leisure before being transferred by your English-speaking driver to Udaipur airport to catch your onward flight to Delhi.
Once you arrive in Delhi, meet up with your English-speaking driver, who will transfer you to your hotel. Once checked in, the remaining evening is at your leisure.
Overnight in Delhi – you can choose your hotel and standards below
Welcome back to Delhi, a city of modern India where you can experience the historical perspective on the past and future. Once greeted by your private guide, enjoy a cycle rickshaw ride around the historic district of Old Delhi. Immerse yourself in this charismatic city’s intoxicating yet chaotic charm on one of these light, three-wheeled vehicles driven by an expert who understands how to negotiate what can appear to be non-navigable streets – it’s quite an art! This is an offbeat and truly “Only in India” experience.
Visit Jama Masjid, India’s largest mosque and plunge into the bustling streets of Old Delhi. Explore Chandni Chowk, the main street lined with shops selling everything from exquisite silver jewellery to perfumes and piping hot jalebis, a deep-fried Indian desert. As you explore the market, you can sample some of Delhi’s delicious street food before heading to the nearby Red Fort and airport – dependent on your flight departure time.
