Highlights Of Rajasthan

The Best Of Rajasthan

This is a unique itinerary that brings you the best that Rajasthan has to offer while cutting down on the long journey times as much as possible and avoiding the Thar Desert.

Our tour starts with a brief visit to Delhi before travelling onwards to Jaipur, the fabled Pink City of Rajasthan with the awe-inspiring Amber Fort clinging to the rugged Aravalli Mountains nearby.

The citadel of Jodhpur rises starkly above the plains, with the stunning Mehrangarh Fort dominating the Old City. Udaipur is the ultimate romantic destination in India and the highlight of any visit to Rajasthan. The spectacle of the city’s numerous palaces rising on one side of Lake Pichola with the Lake Palace on an island in the centre is simply one of the great sights of the world.

You can travel back to Delhi via an internal flight before your departure from India or even fly to Goa or Kerala for a beach stay in combination with this tour.

Recommended For: Anyone who wants to see the best of Rajasthan while cutting down on long journey times as much as possible.

Day 01

Depart UK
Depart UK – Overnight flight.

Day 02

Delhi
The Manor  

Delhi
After resting on arrival in Delhi, the Chandni Chowk bazaar is the place to go for the full-on Indian experience of crowded, twisting alleys and tiny shops. The brilliant red sandstone Red Fort (Lal Qila) was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as his ruling palace in 1648. Opposite is the Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India.

Rajpath is the main parade route that leads to the President's Palace (Rashtrapati Bhavan) and the splendid India Gate, a nice place for an evening walk when the buildings are lit, and the vendors come out to supply snacks and bites.

Humayun's Tomb is one of Delhi's UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In South Delhi is the astonishing Qutub Minar a 239 ft minaret that was the tallest "skyscraper" in the world when built (1193-1368).

A great way to sample the colonial ambience of Delhi would be to stop for tea at the lovely Imperial Hotel or Claridges.

Day 03

Jaipur
The Trident Jaipur  

The Princely City Of Jaipur
The 'Pink City' of Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan and a glorious city that was meticulously planned by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II in 1727.

Private Guided Tour The Jaipur City Palace
The City Palace is a delightful blend of Mughal and traditional Rajasthani architecture, sprawling over one-seventh of the area of the walled city. The complex is divided into a series of courtyards, gardens and buildings which contains collections of royal costumes and armaments. The Hawa Mahal (1799) or Palace Of Winds, is a five story building that was originally built to enable the women of the royal household to watch the everyday life and processions of the city. The Jantar Mantar was an astronomical observatory, created by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II.

The Old City
Beyond the ramparts the old city has a wonderfully Medieval flavour, and a walk through the rambling lanes will reap rich rewards for the curious, with markets selling cotton fabrics, carpets, jutties (slippers with the unique upturned toes) and ittars (traditional perfume).

Day 04

Jaipur
The Trident Jaipur  

The Amazing Beauty Of The Taj Mahal
Amber has a fantastical location in the Aravali Hills just north of Jaipur. Within its forbidding walls lies a palace with a beautifully decorated interior. The palace with its intricate courtyards offers a highly romantic insight into the medieval lifestyles of Rajput princes.

Approached from a steep ramp, visitors ride up on elephant back, entering through the grand Singh Pol Gateway.

Day 05

Jodhpur
Ajit Bhawan

Ajmer And Pushkar
Pushkar Lake is situated on the edge of the desert and surrounded by hills on three sides, is separated from Ajmer by ‘Nag Pahar’ - the snake mountain. The Bathing Ghats of Pushkar attract many pilgrims throughout the year who take a dip in its holy water.

Jodhpur
Princely Jodhpur sits on the edge of the Great Thar Desert. The city is the gateway to the treasures of western Rajasthan.

A Private Guided Tour Around Mehrangarh Fort
The impressive and forbidding 15th Century Mehrangarh Fort is one of the most stunning hill forts of Rajasthan. It offers some excellent views of the old city. The fort itself, with its enormous gateways, has a fairy-tale feel with palatial apartments that have been built over five centuries of bristling history. On the way up to the fort is the Jaswant Thada - a cenotaph on the hill of Mehrangarh.

Day 06

Jodhpur
Ajit Bhawan

The Old City
The old city offers winding streets with colourful markets and blue painted Brahmin houses. The Girdikot and Sadar markets display a wide range of Rajasthani handicrafts. Tiny shops line both sides of the narrow lanes in these markets. One can find textiles, silver, handicrafts, aromatic spices, vegetables and colorful Indian sweets.

The Umaid Bhawan Palace
Umaid Bhawan Palace (1929)
is a beautiful edifice of marble and pink sandstone. This immense palace is now a grand and extravagant heritage hotel that is one of the most luxurious in princely India.

Day 07

Udaipur

Jain Temples Of Ranakpur
Ranakpur has one of the biggest and most important Jain temple complexes in India. The main Chaumukha Temple has carvings of exceptional beauty.

Lunch At The Maharani Bagh Orchards
The Maharani Bagh, or Queen's Garden, is beautifully located at the foot of the thickly forested Aravali Hills. It is a fruit orchard with acres of mango, lime, and pomegranate giving way to intimate gardens in full bloom. There is a restaurant with a spectacular view of the hills and a charming village courtyard complete with thatched roofs and delicious Rajasthani cuisine.

Udaipur – The Venice Of The East
Udaipur captures the imagination like few other places in the world. Surrounded by gently undulating hills and set around peaceful Pichola Lake, it is a city of great beauty. The location is easily the most romantic in India with The Lake Palace on Jag Niwas island in the middle of the lake complimented by the grand City Palace on one bank and the Monsoon Palace on a hill above. Udaipur is also a centre for performing arts, craft and famed miniature paintings.

Romantic Boat Ride On Lake Pichola
The picturesque lake is surrounded by hills, palaces, temples, bathing ghats and embankments. The lake encloses the Jag Niwas and Jag Mandir islands. The City Palace extends along its eastern banks.

The Lake Palace Hotel
The Lake Palace (1743) is a magical fairy tale property located in the middle of the Pichola Lake on Jag Niwas island. Today the palace is one of the most famous and luxurious hotels in the world.

Private Guided Tour Around The Udaipur City Palace

The main part of the palace is now preserved as the City Palace Museum, housing an armoury and a large collection of artifacts. The rooms of the museum are extravagantly decorated with mirrors, tiles and paintings. The Mor Chowk (Peacock Square) has beautiful mosaics of peacocks. The Saheliyon Ki Bari is an ornamental garden built for the entertainment of the royal ladies.

Fateh Prakash Palace
The Fateh Prakash Palace next door has an astonishing Durbar Hall that is undoubtedly the most lavish in India, and its sheer size makes one gasp in awe. The Crystal Gallery upstairs has a breathtaking collection of the world’s finest crystals.

Vintage Collection of Classic Cars
