An incredible 15-day tour through some of the most iconic sites of Northern India. After Delhi, visit the Taj Mahal and take a tour through the desert plains of Rajasthan – home to impressive forts, ornate palaces and wildlife parks. One departure a year is timed to co-inside with the spectacular annual Pushkar camel fair and festival. The tour starts with a full day tour of Old and New Delhi before we head to Agra to visit Agra Fort and the incredible Taj Mahal at sunset. The tour then visits the ruined city of Fatehpur Sikri and enjoys a cycle rickshaw through Keoladeo National Park en-route to the Pink City of Jaipur. Here we tour the city and the Amber Palace as well as enjoying some free time to explore this bustling city. Next we head into the rural arid region of Shekhawati where we stay in a classic Rajasthani heritage hotel and see the colourful outdoor frescoes painted on many of the houses. Our drive through Rajasthan continues through the desert landscape around Bikaner and onward to remote Jaisalmer where we visit one of the largest forts in the world. The next morning we make our way to the 'Blue City' of Jodhpur with its colourfully painted houses. Our circuit through Rajasthan then completes by exploring forts and temples in Udaipur and Barli before heading back to Delhi via the holy lakeside town of Pushkar.
