Authentic Starter Pack
Settle gently into colourful and chaotic India, a riot on the senses. Touching down amidst the commotion of Delhi can be something of a culture shock, so this trip is designed to give you a softer landing. You’ll spend one night in Central Delhi before driving on to the Pink City of Jaipur, crammed with fairy-tale palaces, historic splendour and heaving bazaars stuffed with beautiful textiles.
Camels and Castles in Rajasthan
Soak up the romance of Rajasthan, from mystic lake palaces to desert forts. Hear the soft chants of pilgrims in Pushkar, explore the bazaars of the Blue City and stare out over the sea of sand surrounding Jaisalmer. It’s a trip filled with atmosphere and a fairy-tale tint. You’ll spend five nights travelling across this legendary state, admiring huge forts and feeling lost in the romance of it all.
Sunrise at the Taj Mahal
Visit mystical monkey temples and ghost cities en route to sunrise at the Taj Mahal. A real wonder of the world, it’s a building that will take your breath away. India’s Golden Triangle is the stuff of legend, with the ethereal Taj Mahal at its pinnacle. This trip will take you from the Pink City of Jaipur to Agra, where you’ll watch dawn break over the Taj Mahal.

Travel by Plane
If you don’t fancy taking the train, we can alter this itinerary so you can travel by domestic flight instead. Your itinerary will differ slightly from the one above. On day 10, instead of heading to Jaisalmer, you’ll be transferred to Jodhpur airport where you’ll board a flight to Delhi. After spending the night in Delhi, you’ll head to Agra for the Taj Mahal and continue the trip as normal from here. This version of the itinerary is 14 days and 13 nights long.
