Rajasthan and North India Tour Highlights

Romantic desert cities of Rajasthan

Romantic desert cities of Rajasthan

From the walled city of Bikaner with its imposing fort to the lavishly decorated havelis of Shekhawati, Rajasthan offers history, colour and amazing architecture.

In the capital, Jaipur, visit the ornate Palace of Winds, City Palace and the 16th century Amber Fort. Beautiful Jodhpur, founded in 1459 is famous for its imposing hilltop Mehrangarh Fort, the enormous Umaid Bahawan Palace, part of which is a hotel, and the graceful marble Jaswant Thada mausoleum. Udaipur is probably the most romantic city of all, with its beautiful gardens of Sahelion-ki-Bari, majestic City Palace with its balconies and cupolas, and the exquisite 250 year old Lake Palace, which “floats” on Lake Pichola.
The Golden Triangle and Taj Mahal

The Golden Triangle and Taj Mahal

India’s legendary Golden Triangle is composed of the famous cities of Delhi, Jaipur and Agra, home of the Taj Mahal.

Delhi is India’s dynamic capital where days can be spent exploring the monuments and the fascinating life on the streets. The narrow lanes of Old Delhi contrast with grand government buildings, the towering Red Fort, the magnificent Jama Masjid Mosque and the beautiful 12th century Qutab Minar tower. Jaipur, the ‘Pink City’ is the romantic capital of Rajasthan with dramatic Rajput and Mughal architecture, forts and palaces. Agra is where you will find the wonderful Taj Mahal mausoleum, built of luminous white marble and surrounded by gardens and reflecting pools.
