Embrace the sensory overload of Delhi, see the Taj Mahal at sunrise in Agra and go on incredible safaris in search of Ranthambhore’s wild tigers. Stay in a palace in Jaipur, cycle through it backstreets and feast on a home-cooked meal with a local family. Hike through the ancient Aravalli Hills, stop for a high tea picnic and stay the night in a luxury fort. End your adventure back in Delhi, mingling with local professionals over drinks in a trendy bar.

 

Brace yourself, India is not a destination for the fainthearted. The traffic is downright madness, the flavours mind-blowing and the colours so vivid that you’ll be reaching for your sunglasses (and camera) around every corner. Here the scent of cardamom and tuk-tuk fumes linger in the air, wild tigers roam the jungle and Wonders of the World pierce the skyline. We’ll throw you right in the deep end of North India on our 10-day adventure, immersing you in chanting temple rituals and authentic train rides through the Rajasthani countryside. We’ll join in with spontaneous laughing yoga classes and drink chai tea with local families. We’ll hike through ancient mountains, stop for high tea picnics and go on dawn and dusk safaris in the Ranthambore National Park. There are sunrise visits to the Taj Mahal, early morning bike rides in Jaipur and an optional hot air balloon ride over Amber Fort at dawn. This means a fair few early starts, so if you’re partial to a leisurely lie-in then this might not be the trip for you. We reckon, however, that the pre-dawn starts become that bit sweeter when you return to a Rajasthani palace for the night. Or how about the infinity pool of a luxury fort? Perhaps a coconut-oil massage in a boutique spa is more your style. And, quite frankly, who wants a lie-in when the dazzling sights of India await? Some say it’s too chaotic, avoid the trains and don’t touch the street food – but that’s not really living, now is it?

Day 2: EMBRACE THE CHAOS OF DELHI

Weave through the tuk-tuks of Old Delhi on a history-packed tour, escaping the mayhem for lunch in a serene local temple. Enjoy a free afternoon exploring your new surroundings, or simply relax by the pool at your hotel.

 

Rise and shine for the first full day of your Indian adventure. After breakfast at your hotel, get ready to be bombarded by the sensory overload of Old Delhi. This is chaotic city life at its finest, with the intoxicating sights, smells and flavours living up to exactly how you’d imagine one of India’s most populated cities. Embrace the chaos as we weave our way through the streets and alleyways, passing a rich tapestry of haggling merchants and bold colours around every corner. Delhi has seen the rise and fall of many an emperor, so in the midst of everyday life are many grand monuments and palaces tucked away in hidden courtyards. We’ll veer away from the tuk-tuk pandemonium into one such courtyard, winding down a narrow alleyway to discover a serene Haveli. We’ll enjoy a delicious lunch in this oasis of calm, escaping the crazy smells and beautiful mayhem of Old Delhi. From here we’ll carry onto Bangla Sahib Gurudwara, a beautiful temple that provides a free lunch for anyone that enters its doors, no matter your background or wealth. This is an amazing sight to behold, watching people from all walks of life sit side by side and break bread together in this impressive setting The rest of the afternoon is then yours to as you please, be it kicking back by the hotel pool or bartering your way through the food markets. Get those haggling hats on.

Bid farewell to the vivid delights of Delhi today as we journey onwards to Agra. It’s a four-hour drive so settle in for one of the most unusual drives of your life, with a surprising sight greeting you around every turn. Be it decorated elephants strolling the roads, sacred cows causing congestion or goats on mopeds, the traffic here is an entertaining sight to behold. We’ll then reach the historic city of Agra, where we’ll check into the hotel before heading out to one of the city’s most striking sights. Forget the Taj Mahal, that’s tomorrow’s adventure, today we’re exploring the mighty Agra Fort in all its sandstone splendour. Lesser known than a certain Wonder of the World, Agra Fort can be found overlooking the banks of the Yamuna River with an amazing palatial city within its red walls. We’ll explore our way through the elaborate archways, courtyards and chambers of this royal residence, hearing the exotic stories of past kings and rulers brought to life. Then transport yourself back to modern day at your contemporary hotel, where you can get an early night before tomorrow’s sunrise visit to the Taj Mahal. Have your bucket lists at the ready.
