Rajasthan delivers the quintessential Indian experience with its vivid colours, swirling crowds, spectacular deserts, tranquil lakes and rich cuisine.

Our journey begins in Delhi, the Capital City of India and a heady experience of old and new with unbeatable shopping and boundless and vivid energy.  We explore Mughal monuments and architectural masterpieces.  In Agra we visit the greatest monument to love; the Taj Mahal where one cannot help but be awestruck by this most fascinating and beautiful edifice.
We continue through the breathtaking majestic landscape of Rajasthan with its stunning palaces and forts and important cities of Jaipur, Jodphur and Udaipur.

Varanasi, the oldest living city in the world, is often the place in India that has the most profound effect on visitors.  Hindus believe that one who is graced to die on the land of Varanasi will attain salvation and freedom from the cycle of birth and re-birth. Varanasi is considered the most sacred place for all Hindus and is also a pilgrimage site for Buddhists and Jains.

Accommodation on this journey includes luxury hotels, Rawla Narlai – a quaint former hunting lodge and the luxury lakeside tents in the remote town of Nimaj.

Food & Wine

Cuisine of the Indian States of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh are typical of Northern India.  Samosa, Pakora and Kebabs hail from this area and curries are richly spiced with cardamon and saffron.  Breads of Naan, Roti and Paratha along with Biryani, Kofta and Raita are readily available to tempt you.  Western and Indian style breakfasts are served at accommodation featured in this program.

Culinary tour in India, finger-licking!

If you are a foodie (cmon, which one of us is not? hehe), making a cuisine tour in India is a must for you! When you think about India, I bet exotic is the first word that pops up in your head. Exotica is the very essence of this country with India being truly unique in every possible aspect: culture, traditions, lifestyle and, of course, cuisine! When it comes to traditional Indian food, it can be worth exciting and intimidating. Spices are a must in almost every dish but mind the quantity of them used in every of them. Sometimes a dish is seasoned with spices so generously, that you feel like capable of drinking the entire Indian Ocean. In this blog, we will cover some of the most popular cuisine tours in India that will not make your stomach turn :)
