Bustling cities give way to rural bliss
Experience the hustle of India’s vibrant capital city, Delhi, before heading out to the rural lands of Rajasthan, where the city gives way to vast unrelenting deserts and abnormally green lush landscapes. Immerse yourself in the omnipresent colours and smells, maneuver an elephant traffic jam and explore the opulent palaces and forts where we will be staying. This is Butterfield & Robinson’s India—a land of people that conquer and create today, as much as they did centuries ago.Trip designed by Travel Expert Karen MacRae
