This tour has been designed to give you a balanced, varied and full experience of the state of Rajasthan and of India.
From Delhi we will visit the iconic Taj Mahal in Agra before criss-crossing our way south to Udaipur, taking in some of the most famous highlights this part of India is so well known for on the way. We will also show you the other side of this colourful state - the rural villages, out of the way temples, hidden lakes and spectacular hilltop forts - all the while providing you with comfortable and characterful accommodation in charming, family-run heritage hotels. We’ll travel through better known as well as more remote regions, and embark on exciting dawn and dusk jeep safaris for the chance to spot some of India's most elusive wildlife, including the rare black buck, chinkaras, nilgais, civet cats and tigers.
On this itinerary you will witness all the colour, culture and beauty of Rajasthan as well as getting away from the madding crowds.
