(14 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis) Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Udaipur, Goa, Mumbai
Relax and indulge your senses on this romantic tour (perfect for honeymooners!) of India. Enjoy comprehensive cultural touring with your own private guides and drivers, and stay in the country's most acclaimed luxury hotels.
Begin in Delhi, the bustling capital of India. During private touring, experience highlights such as the UNESCO-listed Humayun’s Tomb and Qutb Minar, the Lodi Gardens, and a rickshaw ride through the colorful bazaars of Old Delhi, as well as upscale shopping districts.
Continue to Agra for a spellbinding visit to the Taj Mahal, the world’s greatest monument to love. Also visit Agra Fort and local markets. Stay in the lavish Oberoi Amarvilas in a room with an uninterrupted view of the Taj.
Next, transfer to Jaipur, Rajasthan’s great “Pink City.” See the rich architectural legacy of Jaipur’s merchants and maharajas—hill forts, palaces, the observatory, gardens, temples and havelis (courtyard mansions)—surrounded by stark desert. If desired, ride an elephant to Amber Fort. Marvel at the luminous saris of indigenous tribal women and the bright turbans of Rajasthani men. Explore medieval backstreets and browse bazaars selling textiles, leatherwork, woodblock prints, perfume, jewelry and Jaipur’s traditional blue pottery.
Spend three nights in Udaipur, India's most romantic city, at the beautiful Oberoi Udaivilas. Cruise Lake Pichola and walk through picturesque backstreets, shop for local folk art, tour the City Palace, Jagdish Temple, the Saheliyon Ki Bari Garden, and browse the local bazaars. On a day excursion outside the city, perhaps tour the spectacular Jain temples of Ranakpur, where relief carvings cover every surface, including over 1,400 pillars.
Fly to Goa, India’s smallest state, best known for its beautiful beaches, laid-back atmosphere and Portuguese-inflected cuisine and colonial architecture. Spend three nights at one of India's best resorts, with free time to relax and enjoy the beautiful beach and spa.
Conclude in exciting Mumbai (Bombay). Tour the city’s cultural attractions, bazaars and most interesting neighborhoods, and take a private boat ride to the Elephanta Island Caves—inside are extensive Hindu stone sculptures linked to the cult of Shiva.
