Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • Arrive into Delhi, be met by one of our friendly, local representatives who will take you to your hotel. Relax before an evening food walk through Old Delhi, a great experience and a chance to try lots of specialities.

  • Today you will have a guided tour around both Old and New Delhi, taking in Jama Masjid Mosque, the markets of Old Delhi, as well as Humayun's Tomb, and India Gate in the heart of New Delhi.

  • The driver will collect you after breakfast and take you into the countryside to Churi Ajitgarh, a small trading town. You have the opportunity to stay in a traditional haveli, an Indian mansion house usually built by merchants.

  • Free day at Vivaana, a heritage property that is full of character. Spend the day visiting the local villages or exploring the countryside. You could also relax by the hotel pool or also try the spa.

  • Continue onward to the Pink City of Jaipur today and have the afternoon at your leisure. A drive of about five hours, your driver will be able to suggest places to stop along the way. On arrival in Jaipur you might like to take a walk through some of the local markets to see the craftsmen at work.

  • Enjoy a guided tour around Amber Fort, the original Maharaja's Palace, before heading back into Jaipur for a tour including visiting the current Maharaja's Palace, the Jantar Mantar Observatory and Hawa Mahal.

  • Head to Ranthambhore National Park today with your private driver. Along the way pass small rural hamlets and scrub desert. You will arrive in time for an afternoon game drive to try to see tigers, sloth bears and deer.

  • Today you will head into the national park to search for the elusive tiger. Be aware sightings are never guaranteed so we have booked a morning and afternoon game drive to heighten your chances. The park is also excellent for birdwatching as well as deer, monkeys and land monitors.

  • Leave the park behind and travel to Agra. It's a long journey but your driver will recommend rest stops en route. On arrival in Agra you might like to visit the Baby Taj, considered a 'practise' for the larger Taj Mahal.

  • This morning you will be taken to see the majestic Taj Mahal for sunrise, do take your time and just soak up the experience, as up close it really does have the wow factor! This afternoon, you have a guided tour of the Red Fort and Agra city. This evening you will enjoy seeing the Taj from a unique angle in Kachpura village, which lies across the river, as the sun sets.

  • Fly via Khajuraho to Varanasi today, one of India's seven holy cities. On arrival, have a relaxing evening overlooking the River Ganges. You might like to take a walk along the ghats and watch some of the evening ceremonies.

  • This morning enjoy a fascinating guided tour through this chaotic city. Your guide will take you away from the crowds to see hidden treasures. This evening go on a boat ride on the Ganges to see the city (and its atmospheric aarti ceremony) from the river.

  • Free morning to relax by the river or visit a market before you fly to Delhi this afternoon. Spend the evening in an airport hotel, well located for your international flight home.

  • Your driver will collect you and transfer you to Delhi's International Airport terminal.
