Rajasthan is often held up to represent 'classic' India, and certainly a luxury tour taking in the dazzling cities, sights and sounds of the region would be an ideal introductory visit to this hugely fascinating country.

Miranda is here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • No building lives up to expectations as much as the Taj Mahal in Agra. For a different perspective of the iconic site, cross the Yamuna River in the evening for wonderful sunset views of the Taj reflected in the river
  • There are too many incredible sights in Rajasthan to list, which is partly what makes it such a stimulating destination. From the majestic palaces and forts to the simple Bishnoi villages, the colourful markets in the bustling cities to the smaller bazaars in the villages, there's something to amaze at every turn

Original Highlight

There's nothing more exhilarating than galloping across the desert on one of Siddharth’s amazing Mawari horses (the warrior horses of the Rajputs).

A note on price

Flights to India cost approximately £570 (economy) and many airlines fly directly from the UK. Accommodation-wise, prices vary hugely: Rajasthan could cost around £3,000 per person for two weeks, whilst South Kerala would come in a lot cheaper comparatively for a stay of a similar length.
