Tour Highlights

India is a destination that has seen incredible rulers in its past. North of India is vivid which has been built by the Rajput’s and Mughal’s. The reminiscent of lifestyle lived by these kings in erstwhile era can be still seen as we jaunt through Delhi to Varanasi to Khajuraho to the princely state of Rajasthan.
In this trip, we travel from New Delhi, the capital city of India which has the charm of both British colonial period and the Mughal era. From thereon to Varanasi, where travelers get an opportunity to see Hindu pilgrims in thousands of numbers as they congregate on the banks of the River Ganges.
One also gets to explore India’s amazing artistic legacy through the exquisite murals of Khajuraho followed by the medieval Mughal marvel of love - Taj Mahal in Agra along with a couple of other monuments.
Then we proceed to Ranthambore, an ideal place for a wildlife enthusiast followed by Jaipur, popularly termed as the pink city of India. The tourists get a chance to enjoy an elephant ride at the Amber fort here in Jaipur.
The journey will then let you witness the mystical town of Pushkar situated in Ajmer city of Rajasthan giving you a chance to witness pilgrims offering their prayers around the holy lake surrounded by many temples, bathing Ghats, and a cluster of onion shaped domes and chalk colored buildings.
After that the itinerary takes us to the lavish city of Udaipur which is adorned by bone white buildings (once royal residences) seeming to float upon shimmering lakes. Our next stop is the luminescent blue patchwork city of Jodhpur that deservingly boasts about the grandeur of its iconic places like the Umaid Bhawan Palace and Mehrangarh fort.
Subsequently, the tour will head onto discover the honey colored magnificence of Jaisalmer peeking from the desert horizon, prevalently called the Golden city as easily distinguishable due to its yellow sandstone architecture. The tourists will then be taken to the sprawling desert town of Bikaner, famous for its fort and a bustling walled city encompassed by dark red sandstone havelis (traditionally ornate residences).
And finally finishing the journey at Mandawa - a fictional story book town decked with wildly colorful and bizarrely painted havelis.

The fort stands proudly amidst the golden stretches of the great Thar Desert, on Trikuta Hill, and has been the scene of many battles. Its massive yellow sandstone walls are a tawny lion color during the day, fading to honey-gold as the sun sets, thereby camouflaging the fort in the yellow desert. For this reason, it is also known as the "Golden Fort". Life within the citadel conjures up images of medieval times as we wander through narrow lanes filled with havelis (mansions), temples, skilled artisans and of course camels. We then explore the Jain temple dating to the 11th century BC, the Folk Museum and Patwon-ki-Haveli, the home of  a wealthy merchant belonging to powerful Oswal Jain community and banker who had over three hundred trading centres from Afghanistan to China.
