  4. The City of Lakes, Udaipur is next up, followed by Pushkar.

We will meet you outside the New Delhi airport with our warm Indian welcome (the Sanskrit adage Atithi Devo Bhava or Guest is God, is our watchword). A private chauffeur will drive you to the pre-booked hotel. Check in at your room(s) and make yourself at home for the day.

Hope you had a good night’s sleep because today we are going for a walking tour of Old Delhi. Don't worry! Our team of travel experts will be there with you at all times. We explore: -

  •    Jama Masjid (A holy hideout in the arms of Allah)- Built in the 17th Century, this colossal edifice is oft regarded as the most majestic mosque in India in contemporary times.
  •    Red Fort (Architectural grandeur of the Mughal Empire)- Home to the emperors of the Mughal dynasty for 200 years, this red stone, a UNESCO World Heritage gem, takes you back in time with its regal architecture.
  •    Qutub Minar (Sky is the limit)- The final stop for the day will be the world's tallest brick tower, Qutub Minar.
  • Meena Bazaar (Shopping in the Old-Delhi charm)- One thing about Indian bazaars(markets) is that the vibrance and aesthetic quotient are one of a kind!

The nightlife is for you to enjoy!

Some say Delhi street food is food for the soul! See for yourself if you agree.

The next stop on our classic Rajasthan tour is the erstwhile capital of the Mughal empire, Agra.

  •    Taj Mahal (Mausoleum of royal romance).

Sightseeing for the day begins with THE Taj Mahal, a wonder of the wonders, a legend in its own time, and a name that speaks for itself.

  •    Agra Fort(Immortal emblem of the Mughal power).

Shreds of evidence of the Mughal archaeological prowess will take you aback throughout the Agra day tour- Agra Fort is one.

As the sun sets, the evening is for you to cherish. Walk around the streets of Agra and devour the street food. Mughal cuisine is the hallmark of Agra. A paradise for epicures!

On this morning of our classic Rajasthan tour, we are off to Madogarh. A village where the rhythmic clang of the hammers of the local artisans plays in the backdrop.

Say hi to the Lakhera community, renowned for crafting exquisite resin bangles- a tradition said to be as old as time itself.

Legend has it that Lord Shiva created them to adorn Goddess Parvati with beautiful bangles. Witness their masterful techniques using age-old tools as they transform molten resin into variable works of art.

In the evening, we check in to the opulent Fort Madhogarh, a centuries-old heritage property steeped in royal charm.

Today we are painting the town pink. Why? We are visiting Jaipur, the Pink City of Rajasthan. Jaipur is an enticing concoction of forts, monuments, museums, food, shopping, etc. To help you have the time of your life in Jaipur, you must visit the following-

  • Hawa Mahal(Palace of Breeze).

Not its history of over 2 centuries. Neither is the fact that it comprises 953 windows. The Hawa Mahal is iconic in Jaipur because of its magnanimous concoction of Islamic, Mughal, and Rajput architectural styles.

  • City Palace(Gem in the lap of Jaipur).

If you love forts and love knowing about their history and the lives of the royals, City Palace is just the place! Or should we say the 'palace'?

  • Amer Fort(Reminiscence of the regal legacy of Rajasthan).

Fabricated out of red and white sandstone and marble, the architecture of this fort is a beauteous fusion of Rajputana and Mughal fashion.

  • Jal Mahal(the Island of the Mughals).

Set amid the picturesque Man Sagar Lake, the Water Palace (Jal Mahal) is a structure that seems to float on the lake's surface.

Other renowned places to visit in Jaipur are the Jaigarh Fort, Jantar Mantar and the Maota Lake.

We are sure that by now you are famished. We got your back and stomach too!

Witness the power and grace of Indian wildlife in the wild heart of Rajasthan, in Ranthambore National Park.

Today, we tread an off-the-beaten path and discover Bundi.

Its charm lies in its narrow, colorful streets, which we navigate on foot. On this walking tour of Bundi, Rajasthan, we will introduce you to the vibrant bazaars.
