Rajasthan Tour

14 days from £1675pp plus international flights.

This wonderful trip includes all the very best sites of Rajasthan. 
We take an in-depth look at the contrasting cities of Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Udaipur and Jaipur as well as spending some time in the small villages and towns of the region. 

This is an eminently flexible itinerary, as you have your own driver and vehicle all the way from Udaipur back to Delhi, so you can largely determine where you stop and spend time as you travel through Rajasthan. 

The tour also includes some time in Delhi and a visit to the world-famous Taj Mahal in neighbouring Uttar Pradesh.

Itinerary
Delhi

DAY 1: ARRIVE DELHI

You will be met on arrival at Delhi airport and transferred to your homestay. The rest of the day is free for you to relax after your flight.
Train travel in India

DAY 2: DELHI TOUR & TRAIN TO UDAIPUR

This morning you will be collected from your hotel for a full day tour of both Old and New Delhi. The tour will include sites such as The Red Fort, Jami Masjid, markets, New India Gate, Humayun's Tomb and the Qutub Minar. If time allows you will also have a rickshaw ride in Old Delhi. Later you will be collected from your hotel and transferred to the station for the overnight train to Udaipur.
Breakfast.
Udaipur and lake palace

DAY 3: TOUR OF UDAIPUR

Your train is scheduled to arrive in Udaipur early this morning and you will meet your driver who will be with you for the next 10 days. After checking in to the hotel, you have a morning tour of this attractive lake city. There are many fine havelis, temples and palaces, including the City Palace, the largest in Rajasthan. The famous Lake Palace is perhaps the city's best known site, located in the middle of Lake Pichola. The afternoon is free, maybe explore the alleys and cafes or perhaps opt to relax at the hotel.

Ranakpur

DAY 4: RANAKPUR TEMPLES AND ROHET

This morning you leave the city behind and begin the 5 hour drive to Rohet. On the way you have the opportunity to stop at the beautiful Jain temples at Ranakpur, dating from around the 15th century. There are said to be 1,444 columns inside the main temple, each with its own unique carvings, supporting elaborating carved ceilings and domes. Continue to Rohet.
Breakfast.
Bishnoi woman

DAY 5: BISHNOI VILLAGE

This morning you have the opportunity to visit a Bishnoi village by jeep. The Bishnoi people have a strong love - almost worship - of animals, trees and plants. As a result of centuries of conservation, trees and wild animals thrive in the arid landscape. Herds of animals such as blackbuck and chinkara roam the landscape, and the Bishnois have been crucial to their survival, even allowing them to eat their crops freely. The rest of the day is at leisure.
Breakfast.

Jaisalmer

DAY 6: TO JAISALMER

Continuing your exploration of Rajasthan, you head out into the Thar Desert today, finally arriving at Jaisalmer (about a 5 hour drive). The city is famous for its fort which stands on a ridge dominating the city and can be seen from some miles away. Settle in to your hotel and relax as the rest of the day is free.
Breakfast. 
Jaisalmer

DAY 7: JAISALMER TOUR AND SAND DUNES

A guided tour of the city this morning. The fort is reached by a steep cobbled road. Inside there are several Jain temples open to the public and filled with incredible carvings and sculptures. Outside the fort, there are many fine havelis or mansions, carved out of golden sandstone which glows in the desert sunlight. The afternoon is free and in the evening you have an excursion to Sam Sand Dunes in the Thar Desert. Return to your hotel. Breakfast.
Jodhpur

DAY 8: TO JODHPUR

Today your driver will take you to Jodhpur, a journey of about 5 hours. There are options for stops on the way, as your driver is entirely at your disposal. On arrival at your hotel in the city, relax and settle in. 
Breakfast.
Women in Jodhpur

DAY 9: TOUR OF JODHPUR

This morning you have a tour of the city. Jodhpur is known as the Blue City because of the blue painted buildings that occupy the region north of the fort and make a startling contrast to the desert colours beyond. The most notable feature of Jodhpur is Mehrangarh Fort which sits on a ridge overlooking the city. The fort is famous for its fine stone carvings, and has a commanding view over the town. The rest of the day is free, with the driver at your disposal if you wish. 
Palace of the winds, Jaipur

Breakfast.
Fatehpur Sikri

DAY 12: FATEHPUR SIKRI, AGRA & THE TAJ MAHAL

Today you will be driven to Agra, stopping at the ancient city of Fatehpur Sikri en-route. This red sandstone ghost town dates back to the 16th century, designed as the Mughal capital, it was occupied for only 14 years, due to the water supply being inadequate. Today it is a perfectly preserved masterpiece of Mughal glory. We continue to Agra and this evening we take you to visit the Taj Mahal at sunset. I's lovely to watch as the colours change on the building in the fading light.
Breakfast.
Taj Mahal, Agra

DAY 13: TAJ MAHAL, AGRA AND BACK TO DELHI

An early start (but it's well worth it) as you return to the Taj Mahal, this time to see the sun rise. Return to the hotel for breakfast before visiting the Red Fort and Baby Taj. Later in the day your driver will collect you and take you back to Delhi, for your final night.
Breakfast.
Taj at sunset

Delhi
Delhi
Delhi is India's vibrant capital city. It is a busy, noisy, crowded city filled with modern urban sprawl shooting up around its ancient sites. Although Old Delhi fits the stereotype of narrow alleyways that are almost impossible to negotiate by car, New Delhi was laid out with wide tree-lined streets, and can be surprisingly green and peaceful. 
Udaipur
Udaipur
Known as the White City, Udaipur is an enchantingly beautiful city, with its white marble palaces reflected in the blue waters of Lake Pichola and surrounding by the green Aravalli hills of Southern Rajasthan. 
Jaisalmer
Jaisalmer
Deep in the heart of the Thar Desert, Jaisalmer is one of the last princely bastions in the region. This remote 12th century fort has delicately carved sandstone mansions with facades with sculptural filigree, screen windows, pavilions and beautiful balconies - this is a real architectural feat.
Jodhpur
Jodhpur
Jodhpur, the second largest city in Rajahastan is famous for its magnificent fort and fine palaces and also for its location on the edge of the Thar Desert. The city is known as the Blue City because of the blue painted buildings that occupy the region north of the fort, which make a startling contrast to the desert colours beyond.
Jaipur Palace of the winds
Jaipur
Jaipur, popularly known as the Pink City, is the capital of Rajasthan state and the former capital of the princely state of Jaipur. Jaipur was the first planned city in India and unlike many other India cities, the walled city has broad, straight streets and is remarkable among pre-modern Indian cities for the width and regularity of its streets.
Agra & the Taj Mahal
Agra & the Taj Mahal
Agra is a medieval city on the banks of the Yamuna River. The famous monuments of the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort are both here. The Taj Mahal is one of the most famous buildings in the world. It is the crowning glory of Mughal architecture in India. Not to be missed!
