Rajasthan Experience SummaryAdd to Shortlist
It's big, it's bold, it's busy - and there is nowhere in the world quite like it. Delhi's sights and sounds are sure to engage and intrigue.
Famed for the awe-inspiring Taj Mahal, Agra is a city with a fascinating history and is rich in Mughal heritage, lush gardens and exquisite buildings and temples.
Jaipur was designed by royalty and has delighted visitors for centuries with its pink-hued buildings, wonderful bazaars and rainbow of bright colours dancing along hectic streets.
Often described as an outdoor art gallery, Mandawa is full of intricately painted havelis (mansions) in various state of repair and has an impressive 18th-century fort.
Located in the Thar desert, Bikaner is known for its camel farm, great food, rustic charm and extraordinary palaces, fort and temples.
Like a city risen from the desert sands, Jaisalmer's sand-coloured buildings, busting bazaars and fascinating living fort all help give the city a wonderful old-world feel.
India's enigmatic 'Blue City', Jodhpur, has a captivating Old Town with palaces, heritage buildings, colourful streets and the Mehrangarh Fort shining like a jewel high above the city.
With dusty hills in the background and tranquil lakes its centrepiece, Udaipur is a truly beautiful city with fabulous heritage buildings, restaurants and narrow laneways.
Delhi has been an important city in India for well over 2000 years, and its cultural richness and diversity radiates from every corner.

Rajasthan Experience, April 2014
All aspects of the trip were managed extremely efficiently by Jitu, our tour leader, who took our personal interests (such as horses, jewellery etc.) into account, gave useful advice on health/hygiene and spent time explaining things about India (without turning information into "compulsory lectures" as is often the case in organised tours. Shame that Jitu failed to email us the feedback link (when he said he would, when he collected our email addresses the last night in Delhi). I fail to understand why this happened, as I had a lot of nice things to say....and I gave him a very good tip at the end of the tour. It does not feel very nice to end this way what was otherwise a great trip.

Rajasthan Experience, May 2014
didn't appreciate the effect of heat and digestion difficulties but this did not detract from a thoroughly enjoyable experience it will be obvious from the Crew Question responses that next to India Yadu was the star of the tour! A real trooper who provided a first class service even when unwell at the beginning of the trip.
