Explore India, from Bollywood and big-city icons to the spiritual heartland of yoga
Follow the famed Golden Triangle on this adventure to India’s premier cities – Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. Peel back the curtain on Bollywood with a dance class and a film screening in Jaipur infuse this trip with a glamorous twist. Immerse yourself in India’s history and discover the sparkling relics of lost empires, the legendary Taj Mahal among them. After pounding the pavement in the big cities – and tasting rural village life in Suroth – there’s no better way to finish your journey than with three days in sacred Rishikesh, where the Ganges flows from the mountains to the plains and yoga reigns supreme.
The Taj Mahal is not only a sumptuous masterpiece of Indian architecture, but also a truly meaningful stop on any traveller’s journey
Overlooking the picturesque scene of Moata Lake, the monumental Amber Fort is one sight that will forever be under India’s protection
Sample sweet treats and interact with friendly local folk in Suroth, a fascinating snapshot of rural life off the tourist trail
A dance class and a film screening at Jaipur’s famous Raj Mandir cinema hall make for a thrilling Bollywood experience

For those with limited time, long travel days are kept to a minimum, which is perfect for visiting several icons of northern India
Old Delhi can be very busy and crowded. While it’s an exciting place to see local life moving around you, be aware that on the walking tour you’ll need to navigate through people, tight spaces and walkways.
Rajasthan can reach extremely high temperatures in the summer. While we aim to do our walking tours early in the morning when it’s cooler, remember to keep hydrated and to bring a hat, sunscreen, a long-sleeved shirt and anything else that will protect you from the sun.
We stay at an Ashram and visit a number of temples on this trip, which requires a certain level of modesty. Please bring clothes that cover the arms and pants/skirts that go past the knees for both men and women.
Long distance and overnight trains can often be delayed and occasionally cancelled due to heavy fog between Dec-Feb. Please see the transport section of the essential trip information.
