Colourful and chaotic, vibrant, and romantic – welcome to Rajasthan.

Add a touch of comfort and some very special heritage property accommodation for a true Rajasthani travel adventure.
You may have seen hundreds of photos of it already but laying eyes on the Taj Mahal for yourself during a guided tour is bound to leave a deep impression.
From hitting up a local cinema for a Bollywood movie to desert camping – this trip will show you Rajasthan from every angle.
In addition to your local leader, connect with local guides at historical sites and upon arrival in cities to add unmatched regional knowledge to your experience.
Enjoy two home-cooked meals with local families and sample Jain cuisine at a temple while sharing local culture, stories and traditions with new friends.
Taste the snack highlights of Jaipur and get to know your female driver on a tour with the eco-friendly Pink City Rickshaw Company, a non-profit providing employment and economic independence to women from low-income households.
In order to see as much as possible in the vast north of India, this trip involves some long travel days. We use a variety of transport to get around, from train to private vehicles, auto-rickshaws, and a flight. Packing light will make moving around easier!
Don’t underestimate the weather at any time of year in India. In the summer months, heat can be extreme. In winter months, some travellers have been surprised at the cool of the evenings. A hat, sunscreen, and clothing that can be layered will serve you well year-round.
