(13 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis) Delhi, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Jaipur, Udaipur
Journey through magical Rajasthan on this in-depth private luxury tour. Stay in the region’s most luxurious—and romantic—historic palace hotels, and tour the most interesting attractions, including hill forts, palaces, markets, villages, caravan stops, sand dunes and fascinating places outsiders rarely see.
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.
Fly to Jodhpur. Stay at the legendary Umaid Bhawan Palace, a sprawling Art Deco masterpiece. Tour Mehrangarh Fort, take in views over the blue houses of the old quarter and visit a nearby village to learn about local herbal remedies and indigenous crafts.
Transfer to Jaisalmer, an ancient city and hilltop fortress town that was once a major stop for silk and spice caravans. Tour the fort, visit impressive Jain temples, and see the elaborately carved stone facades of havelis. One evening, ride a camel across the Sam Sand Dunes.
Next, stay in Jaipur, Rajasthan’s great “Pink City,” visiting the centuries-old ruins at Fatehpur Sikri en route. 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.
Continue to 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.
Conclude with a night in Delhi and enjoy last-minute shopping and sightseeing.
