Itinerary

Day 1 Fly to Delhi

Fly to India's capital, Delhi. Depending on your time of arrival the rest of the day is yours to start soaking up the local culture. Meet the group tonight for dinner and start getting to know your fellow travellers.

Day 2 Discover Delhi

Today explore this vivacious city! Starting in Old Delhi, embark on a rickshaw ride through the atmospheric streets, stopping at Jama Masjid, a Mughal masterpiece of a mosque. Then wander through a local market and learn about native herbs and spices. Crossing into New Delhi, admire the colonial grandeur of the Rajpath, including the Rashtrapati Bhavan and India Gate.

Day 3 Travel to Agra

Journey to Agra by road and start explorations with a tour of the magnificent Agra Fort. This mass of red sandstone sits on the bank of the Yamuna River, and from its ramparts catch a first glimpse of the magical Taj Mahal, just two kilometres downstream. Next, take a rickshaw tour of the city, visiting a spice and ayurvedic herb market.

Day 4 Taj Mahal

Rise early to share an unforgettable experience, sunrise at the Taj Mahal. At dawn, when the crowds are at their thinnest, often swathed in mist and tinged pink by the rising sun, the building looks magical. Then travel to Ranthambore National Park, home of the majestic Bengal tigers!

Day 5 Tigers of Ranthambore

Explore Ranthambore National Park in search of tigers, taking early morning and afternoon safaris. There are around 50 tigers living amongst the park's undulating landscapes, as well as leopards, nilgai, sloth bears, wild boar, hyena and over 300 species of bird.

Day 6 Travel to Jaipur

Departing Ranthambore, travel by road to Jaipur, the 'Pink City'. En route stop to admire the exquisitely carved and unique Chand Baori stepwell. On arrival, the rest of the day is free to spend at leisure.

Day 7 Explore Jaipur

The day begins with a photo stop at the Hawa Mahal, the 'Palace of the Winds'. Next, travel out of the city to admire the majestic Amber Fort, the colossal 16th-century yellow and pink sandstone fort just 11 kilometres out of Jaipur. Back in the city, experiment with traditional artistry at a craft centre, including block printing and carpet weaving.

Day 8 Travel to Delhi

Leaving the Pink City, we return by road to Delhi. On arrival, the rest of the day is free to spend as you wish. This evening, the group will sit down together for the last time at a farewell dinner and cooking demonstration at an Indian family home - the perfect time to reflect on recent adventures.

When is the best time to visit India?

The best time to visit is from November to March when you'll experience pleasant warm dry days and low humidity.

Tipping:

Customary tipping amount of approximately US$60pp (AU$87pp) is paid locally in India.

Visas:

Entry visas are required by all visitors to India. Please be advised that your passport must have at least six months validity left on it when you arrive back into Australia.

Transport:

Coaches: Coaches with air conditioning are used on our group tours for city sightseeing, short excursions to the countryside and longer transfers where necessary. Due to Indian Government regulations the use of curtains, tinted glass windows are prohibited across India. Main and inner-city roads in India have a reputation for being very congested. For this reason, it may not always be possible to return to your hotel after sightseeing to freshen up before going to the restaurant for dinner. Roads in India have generally been improved over recent years, but traffic and/or weather conditions may extend driving times. Road construction work usually covers an enormous section of road - not just one or two kilometres as you may be used to. For this reason, the timings listed in the sections above are approximations only.

Air: Internal flights are based on economy class, with reputable airlines. Pre-flight seat allocation is not available on international and internal flight sectors.

Fitness:

This is rated as a physical level 1 tour and requires unaided mobility and the ability to stroll around the sights.. A reasonable level of fitness is required but it’s more about spending time on your feet rather than covering large distances. You’ll be getting on and off coaches and boats, walking around the sights and climbing some steps. Of course, our National Escorts and local guides will always endeavour to provide the highest level of service and assistance; however, they cannot be expected to cater for customers who are unfit to complete the itinerary. If you require any more information about the pace of our tours, please contact our reservations team who will be happy to answer your questions.
