Northern India with Joan Hyman
Feb 2 - 10, 2014
After a relaxing week in Goa, join us on an expertly crafted tour through India’s most treasured sights of the north. We’ll delve into rituals, ceremonies and the culture and lifestyle of both old and new India. We’ll begin in bustling Delhi, touring the ancient bazaars, sampling sumptuous cuisine, and taking a rickshaw ride though the narrow lanes. We’ll then take a train to the Taj Mahal — not to be missed! — before heading to Varanasi, one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited cities.
Witnessing all of life’s rituals on full display along the banks of the holy Ganges River is likely a sight that will stay with you forever. The trip concludes with our return flight to Delhi.
An experienced guide will accompany us throughout the journey and we will also have additional local “insider” guides in each city. Restaurants are selected for their excellent cuisine in addition to their hygiene standards, and we’ll have our own private buses in each location, often flying between locations for maximum comfort and minimum travel hassle.
