Best for: Historical, First Time Visitor, Cultural & Immersive
This is only a suggested itinerary, but it is one of the most popular itineraries guests do when they visit India for the first time. It gives a perfect balance of seeing the forts and palaces that Rajasthan is so famous for, the imitable Taj Mahal and a chance to head through the jungle hoping to spot a tiger in the wild. Naturally we can tweak and change any element of this journey, but at least it gives a starting point to help the ideas flow. We can tailored the day-to-day experiences to ensure you have the most incredible time, using hand-picked private guides to never offer the standard way of seeing India, but what really will make you smile. This might be seeing the Taj Mahal from the other bank of the Yamuna River the night before giving you another angle to see this amazing building, and completely away from other tourists (of course you can see it the following day at sunrise). In Jaipur, we will take you on an interesting immersive walk through the markets and artisan quarters, seeing more of the local life that just seeing the more famous sights. You can go on a short walk in the tribal villages outside of Jaipur, seeing women in traditional colourful saris, and men farming the land with bullocks. Of course you’ll see the classic sights like the City Palace, Amber Fort and so forth, but India has so much more to offer, and we love let it reveal itself a little more. You’ll have your own private driver throughout, meaning we can be flexible with what you see and do, and you’ll stay in charming boutique hotels or opt for the glamorous palaces – we always select the places that are just right for you. You can of course use the itinerary as a starting point to add on other places you want to visit in India, whether it is heading to the colonial hill-station of Shimla, or a beach-stay in Goa. The possibilities are endless, and so do let us know what you would love to see and do in India, and we will make a reality.
