Rajasthan is made up of a collection of former princely states and has attracted travellers, traders and explorers for centuries. Begin your journey in the bustling backstreets of the imperial city of Delhi; travel to the magical marble mosaic of Udaipur beside shimmering Lake Pichola and follow the aroma of burning incense through the antique bazaars of the Blue City of Jodhpur. Explore beaten tracks into remote villages and live the “caravan” lifestyle in an overnight camp amidst the sand dunes of the Thar Desert.
Hear the faint hum of prayer and devotional pilgrim’s song in the sacred town of Pushkar and learn to cook authentic Rajasthani dishes with a local before leaving Jaipur for Agra – home of the majestic Taj Mahal. This wonder of the world, a monument revered for its Mughal history and architecture, is considered to the epitome of love – and a befitting end to an incredible, exotic journey.

What people are saying...
I thought you would like to hear that the trip was fantastic. I had felt quite ambivalent before I left and couldn't real drum up much enthusiasm. How wrong could I be? It was beyond my expectations. The vibrancy, the stimulation, the differences. I felt exhilarated the whole time. Brenda (2017).
