Spend just under two weeks exploring the fascinating sights of India, from the iconic Taj Mahal to the holy Ganges River. Journey through the ages as you visit temples dating back to Medieval India, as well as bustling modern markets and some of the country’s most famous sights.
Take a train journey through the ever-changing landscapes and take in small rural communities, ornate palaces and temples and mountains and plains which stretch for miles. Take a boat trip along the Ganges River and experience a Hindu service first hand before admiring intricate carvings and rich colours. Add an optional extension and unwind on the warm sands of Goa’s beaches, explore its Colonial architecture or make the most of the area’s unique cuisine.
Fly from London to Delhi.
Drive from Jaipur to Agra (around 152 miles).
Along the way stop at Fatehpur Sikri, which is a deserted city dating back to 1569. Emperor Akbar built the city to honour the Saint Sheikh Salim Chisti but left after 14 years, with the population gradually declining due to water shortages. The ghost city is full of well preserved deserted buildings and palaces waiting to be discovered.
