This exotic tour of Rajasthan transports you to the regal era of Maharajas, opulent palaces, majestic forts and a kaleidoscope of colours set in the expansive Thar Desert.
Our tour, ‘Spirit of Rajasthan,’ has been designed for you to experience the kaleidoscope of culture, tradition, arts, music, food and lifestyle of the most dramatic and colourful part of India.

The ‘Golden Triangle’ is merely the starting point for this exotic adventure. Throughout the tour, we take you off the beaten track to little-known places where the architecture of great beauty and engineering feats present themselves, villages of artisans (pottery, weaving, block-printing, silver jewellery making etc.) enthral you, and the sand dunes of Rajasthan embraces you.

The adventure starts from the architectural gem of India – Delhi. The city of Agra beckons us so you can feast your eyes on an exquisite wonder of the world, the Taj Mahal. We then spirit you away to exotic, vibrant and majestic Rajasthan. Travelling together in a small group (maximum of 10 guests), we will have our own private air-conditioned vehicle with our own driver at our beck and call for the whole tour.

We will stay in boutique accommodation, handpicked by us, for you to rest and rejuvenate in beautiful settings such as palaces, homestays, farm stays and even a desert camp! The breathtaking landscapes, enchanting folk music, mouth-watering cuisine, majestic architecture, ornate crafts and warm and welcoming hosts will enchant you.

Come join us and experience exotic Rajasthan – the land of Rajputs!

ITINERARY

Day 1, 2 & 3 – Delhi - Arrival

We will receive you at the Delhi International airport and take you to the hotel. Delhi is the architectural gem of India, and we will explore the old city on a cycle rickshaw to take it all in. Historically a Mughlai stronghold, we will not miss their delicious cuisine.

Day 4 – Agra

Now that you have acclimatised, we will roll on over to Agra – the home of the exquisite Taj Mahal. Those who would like to can attend a Bollywood-style show enacting the story of Shah Jahan & Mumtaz to give a rich background to the Taj Mahal or just relax in the pool and sip a refreshing drink or two.

Day 5, 6 & 7 – Jaipur

After a very early morning visit of the Taj Mahal, we will make our way to Jaipur – The Pink City of India. We will stop at several unique places of interest along the way. Rajasthan has more to offer than just amazing forts and palaces, so we will explore rural Rajasthan, where artisans bring art and music to life.

Day 8 – Nawalgarh

Day 9 & 10 – Bikaner

Bikaner retains the medieval grandeur of the past. Dotted with scores of sand dunes, it sure is something different. Beautiful havelies line the streets for all to enjoy the intricate and ornate handwork. We will venture out further to explore leather craft, tie & die, hand spinning, embroidery and weaving. The sweets and snacks of Bikaner are mouth-watering.

Day 11 & 12 – Jaisalmer

Stayed in a desert camp before? You will be here! You will also get to experience a camel safari through the desert villages. Meet the villagers and the local craftsmen and enjoy folk singing and folk dance.

Day 13 & 14 – Jodhpur

Enthralled by the beautiful forts and temple architecture, we will also get to enjoy visiting a village where people, animals, plants and trees have lived in harmony since the 15th century.

Day 15 – Ranakpur

Day 16 & 17 – Udaipur

We will spend our final two days in Rajasthan in an organic farm near the Aravali hills. Kick back and relax in the sun or go for a ride!

Day 18 – Ahmedabad - Departure

After a leisurely start, we will drive to Udaipur domestic airport to board our flight to Delhi.

The guests who are booked on our ‘Essence of Kerala & Tamil Nadu’ tour will join us on the trip down south!
