Explore “the Land of Kings” and discover the majesty of Rajasthan!
On this 11 day tour, experience many of the treasures and charm this region has to offer. We’ll visit all the “must-see” cities in Rajasthan, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh, where you’ll be able to marvel at its ancient palaces and forts.
And as with all our tours, with the help of your tour guide you’ll get under the skin of the places that we visit. In Udaipur, besides enjoying the spectacular view of Lake Pichola, we will also take you on a bicycle ride and have a meal with a local family. In Jodhpur, we’ll go for a camel ride in the desert before having dinner at the camel owner’s home. We’ll wander around the maze-like bazaars, trying the local foods and fruits.
Rajasthan truly has it all.
