We’ll then take a car to Sula Vineyards, covering 160 acres of land, which wine lovers won’t want to miss as India’s most well-known and loved wine is found here. We’ll tour through the lush vineyards, learn the art of wine-making, and taste the wine of course!

In the afternoon, we’ll look around Nashik city, including Panchavati Temple, before taking another train to Aurangabad the home of many World Heritage Monuments including Ellora Cave Temple, Ajanta caves and Bibi Ka Maqbara. We will be arriving in Aurangabad and reach the hotel and take much needed rest from the long and productive day!

After exploring Ellora Caves, we’ll venture to Aurangabad to see Bibi Ka Maqbara, also known as the Baby Taj Mahal, with some fabulous photo opportunities. .

In the afternoon we’ll catch a comfortable train back to Mumbai (7.5 hrs), with some pleasant views of rural Maharashtra. On your arrival in Mumbai, we will transfer you to your hotel and your tour will be complete.
