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 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.

Awesome trip into the south, with opportunity to observe, and learn so much about the religious practices and history of the Moghul period, alongside the ever present Hindu and Sikh religions...Great markets in Jaipur at Karaul Baur, and a great shop at the Heritage stay...Don't forget a hat for wandering around the forts and memorials.. Try to make time for the Ghandi Museum in Delhi...For some, it may be more interesting than the Ghandi Gate.. The Red Fort in Delhi could be missed, as the forts you see down south, are much more spectacular in my opinion.. The Taj Mahal is everything you might imagine, in its glory.. Intrepid manage to bypass the queues and we had a swift entrance.. Thanks Intrepid for a great trip!
