Introducing India

What we came up with

One of the most vibrant country's on Earth, India can conjure up a multitude of conflicting emotions during any stay. As a result it's not everybody's cup of chai, but those who fall for the subcontinent fall hard, and become lifelong devotees. It's a place of unparalleled diversity, from the soaring Himalayas in the north to the tropical palm-fringed beaches in the south, the jungles of the central regions to the deserts of Rajasthan. This itinerary has been designed you give you a taster of both North and South India.

Itinerary Highlights

  • Delhi - 2 Days
    Delhi is a cacophony of people, sounds and smells which make it a truly exhilarating place to start off an Indian adventure. Whether exploring the backstreets of old Delhi on a rickshaw, or taking in the majestic Red Fort or Humayun's Tomb, the sights are endless and intriguing. A stay at The Imperial Hotel will melt away the hustle and bustle with its chic, serene interiors, in the heart of New Delhi.

  • Agra - 1 Day
    Travel by train to Agra, where will find the most famous of all the sights in India, the romantic, alluring and enthralling Taj Mahal. Built by a Mughal Emperor as a tomb for his wife, it is the ultimate gesture of love, and the exquisite detail simply must be seen to be believed. The ITC Mughal Sheraton is ideally situated for relaxation within easy reach of the Taj.

  • Ranthambore - 3 Days
    The elusive tigers of Ranthambore National Park are finally on the up in number, and the camp of Sher Bagh could not be a more appealing place to relax after being out in the bush, trying to glimpse these regal creatures. Game drives aplenty mean this is a nature lovers dream, and will entice the hardiest explorers to quietly take in the magnificent tigers as they pad through their natural habitat.

  • Jaipur - 2 Days
    Known as 'the pink city', Jaipur blends culture and colour in an eclectic mix, while being home to a vast four million people. The Amber Fort, so named for its colour, sits atop the hillside overlooking the city below and is a wonderful place to visit, though simply wandering through the warren-like alleys and streets is an intriguing pastime in itself. The Samode Haveli, an old palace, is a sophisticated and chic place to sit back and unwind when the streets outside become a little overwhelming.

  • Kerala - 4 Days
    Sitting opposite the oldest European church in India is Malabar House, the first boutique hotel of its kind in Kerala. Cochin is a historic fishing village, as well as having been an influential spice route in the past. The town has been greatly influenced by the Portuguese, Dutch and British in past centuries, lending to a rich and colourful culture and history for you to explore.

  • Backwaters - 3 Days
    There's little more relaxing than drifting down the tropical backwaters of Kerala, and spending a night on Purity Houseboat in Lake Vembanad will certainly pay tribute to this testament. The calm and serene waters are the perfect arena to round off a trip, enjoying delectable feasts served onboard, as you float past scenes of riverside life.
