India, a unique country and civilization, is a melting pot of sights, sounds, colours and experiences!
The jewel of the tour is surely the Taj Mahal, built to house the tomb of Emperor Jahan’s wife. But you’ll also see the real India, including the nation’s unofficial symbol, the tigers of Ranthambore National Park, through to the Rajasthan forts and palaces of the Moghul empire and the more recent Raj and British colonial influence.
We stay in Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, known as the pink city and we visit the Maharajah’s City Palace and the great Amber Fort. We stay at the Castle Mandawa, a restored fort, one of the region’s best heritage hotels.
On selected departures your tour continues on to Shimla, the summer capital of India during the Raj. Victorian engineers managed to build one of the marvels of Indian Railways, the 96-kilometre narrow-gauge line to Shimla, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Genuine Indian cuisine is varied and interesting, from a simple hot chapatti fresh from the oven, to the delicate spices of Kheer, a sweet rice pudding. A trip to India will change your view of Indian cookery..
