Join us on an expertly crafted tour through the most treasured sights of Northern India, beginning in bustling Delhi, where old meets new. Hop on a rickshaw through the narrow lanes of Delhi’s ancient bazaars, visit India’s largest mosque and sample some of the subcontinent’s most sumptuous cuisine and best shopping. From here, we may visit the famous Taj Mahal or the sparkling desert city of Jaipur. Our adventure ends in Varanasi, one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, and for many, the highlight of any journey to India. Hinduism’s principal pilgrimage city, people travel thousands of miles to bathe in its sacred waters. All of life’s rituals are on full display along the banks of the holy Ganges River—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’ll 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.
