Tucked away in the north-west corner of India, Rajasthan is India's largest state, dotted almost everywhere with opulent palaces and historic hill-forts, incredibly diverse scenery, vibrant traditional lifestyles and people with wide smiles on their faces. The enticing part is its extremes. You might be driving through a desert, admiring temples, yet soon after you could be engulfed by a sea of people, bright saris and the urgent shouts of street sellers.

Start your trip in Old Delhi. The heart of Old Delhi is a 400-year old tangle of lanes with colorful bazaars, complemented by vibrant temples, the towering minaret of Qutab Minar, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Red Fort.

Next, we fly you to Udaipur, the city of lakes. The majestic white City Palace offers a spectacular view over Lake Pichola and you can enjoy a boat ride with your private guide. At Eklingji, about twelve miles north of Udaipur, you can stroll a vast maze of 108 temples, built to propagate the blessings of Lord Shiva, while the collection of crystals at the Fateh Prakash Palace might just take your breath away.

Situated on the boundary of the Thar Desert, your next stop Jodhpur is also called the ‘Blue City’. You will understand why when your private guide takes you to the city’s most magnificent building, the Mehrangarh Fort, located at a lofty height of 400 feet: most of the houses around the fort are painted blue. Travel by jeep to visit some traditional villages outside Jodhpur and mingle with locals dressed in their traditional attire. With some luck you might spot black buck, chinkaras or peacocks, freely roaming the countryside.

After the ‘desertscapes’ you just left behind, a tour through Jaipur reveals amazing colors. Virtually every building in the historical center is painted a terracotta pink, but they’re in competition with flower markets, turban stalls, brightly painted careering buses, trucks and, yes, elephants. Admire the striking mix of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture of the City Palace and let your private guide explain the fascinating precision of the giant sundial next door at the ‘The Observatory’. The number one attraction, of course, is the Amber Fort, a breathtaking construction of red sandstone and marble.

The conclusion of your trip to this thoroughly captivating part of the country, the Taj Mahal, is a fitting finale. A stunning monument to love and an exquisite example of Mughal architecture, it has captivated the hearts and minds of travelers for centuries. Crafted entirely from white marble, it is an architectural marvel, offering different moods of view depending on if you see it at sunrise or sunset. Many travelers opt to do both.

Day 2: Delhi

The contrasts between Old and New Delhi are striking – Old Delhi boasts spectacular UNESCO World Heritage monuments and holy sites, whereas New Delhi was designed in a typically British colonial style, with manicured tree-lined avenues and colonial bungalows. Meet with your private guide and driver to spend the day exploring the contrasts between the two sides of the city, and an overall orientation of the city’s finest sites. Start with the Laxminarayan Temple, a modern Hindu temple dedicated to Vishnu and his consort Lakshmi, and the first large-scale Hindu Temple built in Delhi. Drive past the impressive India Gate, a famous 137-foot-high War Memorial Arch that is reminiscent of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

Continue to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Red Fort, the captivating historic fort that served as the main residence of the emperors of the Mughal dynasty for nearly 200 years. It was constructed as the palace for Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan’s new capital, Shahjahanabad when he moved his capital from Agra to bring prestige to his reign. The sprawling fort is 1.5 miles long and ranges in height from 60 to 110 feet. The architecture bears a resemblance to Agra Fort. Next, visit Qutab Minar, the tallest brick minaret in the world at 239 feet in height. The minaret is surrounded by many buildings that are fine examples of Indian artwork dating back to 1193 and forms the Qutab complex, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. End the day with a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Humayun’s Tomb, a complex of Mughal-style buildings dating to the Slave Dynasty of 1268-1287 AD. The complex is the first example of this type of Mughal architecture in India, and the mausoleum is built in a similar style as the Taj Mahal in Agra. At the end of the day, return to your hotel by private vehicle.

Ranakpur is home to one of the largest and most important Jain temple complexes in India, the 15th-century sprawling complex made up of 29 halls over 4500 square yards. Located approximately 100 miles from Jodhpur, Ranakpur is one of the five most important pilgrimage sites of the Jain faith. Mornings are reserved for prayers - visitors to the temple are welcome from noon to 5 p.m. Conservative dress is required when visiting Ranakpur: women must cover their legs well below the knee.

Day 7: Jodhpur - Jaipur

Meet your private driver and settle in for a transfer from Jodhpur to Jaipur. Approximate driving time is 5 hours.

The creative energy and ingenuity of Jaipur have long been a drawing point of the city, a lasting legacy of skilled craftspeople and artisans. From the founding of the city in 1727, the royal families and nobles of Jaipur have patronized the craft capital of India, and through their sphere of influence, many valuable and highly prized items can still be found. Using skills passed down through generations, artisans and master craftsmen can be seen in the areas of Ghat Darwaza and Vishveshwar ji. Starting in front of the iconic Palace of the Winds, set out on foot with your private guide and spend a colorful evening walking through the city’s bazaars, mingling and chatting with store vendors and locals alike, and sampling some of the region’s notable culinary favorites. Taste pakoras, aloo tiki, samosas and ladoo from a selection of the city’s most popular street food vendors that have been carefully vetted for quality and hygiene standards. Stroll along and poke your head into local artisans’ workshops to observe the painstakingly careful craftsmanship of jewelers and silversmiths, gold painters and tie-dying experts. At the end the 2.5-hour walk through the bazaars, return to your hotel by private vehicle.

Accommodation: Jai Mahal Palace (5*)

The Jai Mahal Palace is set amidst 18 acres of beautifully landscaped Moghul gardens, and dates back to 1745 A.D. A masterpiece in the Indo Saracenic style of architecture, it blends spotlight-grabbing opulence with tantalizing comforts that transport guests to a world of Rajasthan magnificence. It is located downtown, close to the main shopping center and historical monuments.

Day 8: Jaipur

Meet your private guide and driver at your hotel, and spend the day exploring some of Jaipur’s iconic monuments. Begin the day with a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the magnificent hilltop Amber Fort, also known as the Amer Fort. Originally established in 1592, Maharaja Man Singh I created the imposing citadel on the remains of an earlier 11th-century Jaigarh Fort, and it remained under the control of Kachhawaha rulers until they moved their capital to nearby Jaipur in 1727.

From here, continue to the City Palace, a breathtaking 18th-century royal residence to the rulers of Jaipur. Wander through the sprawling complex and visit areas that have been converted to a museum illustrating the harmony of Rajput and Mughal architecture. Part of the palace, Chandra Mahal, is the home of the current Maharaja and is off-limits.

After the palace, continue to the adjacent Observatory of Jaipur, known as Jantar Mantar. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to the world’s largest sundial. The massive astronomical instruments were built from local stone and marble and is a monument to 18th-century architectural innovations during the Mughal period. End with a visit to the red and pink sandstone Hawa Mahal, also known as the Palace of the Winds. Jaipur’s iconic monument sits adjacent to the opulent City Palace and is adorned in an ornate pale pink façade with a tiered baroque-like build.  The original design was intended to allow royal ladies to observe everyday life and public festivals in the streets below without being seen, in observance of the strict rules of “purdah”, which forbade them from appearing in public without face coverings. The 953 small windows called “jharokhas” are decorated with intricate latticework and offer spectacular views of the city. At the end of the day, return to your hotel by private vehicle.

Day 9: Jaipur - Agra

Meet your driver and settle in for a private transfer from Jaipur to Agra, with a stop at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Fatehpur Sikri, an abandoned ghost city, along the way. Meet with a local guide in Fatehpur Sikri to explore the ruins. Constructed during the second half of the 16th-century by Emperor Akbar, the "City of Victory" served as the capital of the Mughal Empire for approximately 14 years, until the capital was moved to Punjab and the city was later abandoned. The well-preserved complex of monuments and temples reflects the Hindu and Muslim architectural styles of the time, and houses one of the largest mosques in India, the Jama Masjid. After your visit to the abandoned city, continue by private vehicle to Agra. Approximate travel time is 5-6 hours including touring. 

Accommodation: ITC Mughal (5*)

Sprawled over 35 acres of luxurious gardens, and in close proximity to the Taj Mahal, ITC Mughal is a fitting tribute to the great Mughal builders of the past. The only Indian hotel to have won the prestigious Aga Khan Award for its excellent representation of Mughal architecture, the property boasts the 'Khwab Mahal' wing - Palace of Dreams. The opulent rooms and suites that resemble Miniature Palaces recreate a paradise for the contemporary Mogul - full of splendor and perfection which was the hallmark of the Mughal Dynasty.

Day 10: Agra

A stunning monument to love, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Taj Mahal has captivated the hearts and minds of travelers for centuries. Meet your private guide and driver for a private tour of this exquisite example Mughal architecture, crafted entirely out of white marble. Commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in loving memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal who passed away during childbirth, the iconic mausoleum rises above a well-manicured garden. The inside of the Taj Mahal is equally stunning, with elaborate inlay work comprised of precious and semi-precious stones.

After your leisurely exploration of this New 7 Wonders of the World, continue by car to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Agra Fort, a red sandstone fort built on a bend of the Yamuna river. The Mughal Dynasty fort served as the main residence of the emperors until the capital was shifted to Delhi, and is an impressive monument with a rich architectural history. Emperor Shah Jahan was once imprisoned inside of Agra Fort, and the tower of his imprisonment offers views of the Taj Mahal in the distance. At the end of the visit, return to your hotel by private vehicle.
