Dates & Prices


This amazing trip begins from Delhi, the capital city of India. It includes the Taj Mahal, which is one of the eight wonders of the modern world. Its stunning architectural beauty is beyond adequate description, particularly at dawn and sunset. Visit the major Rajasthani principalities and townships, sleep in a palace or castle turned into hotels, dine on the royal Rajasthani meals, and enjoy the colorful folk dances.

Rajasthan, as the name suggests is the land of Maharajas, meaning the King of Kings. Amazing legends of heroism and romance still resound from its equally amazing architecture that still stands to narrate its tale of a bygone era. The stories about their courage and bravery, the heroism and rivalry, the queens and concubines are still told. The magic of Rajasthan is unequalled in the world for its heritage, culture, safaris, sand dunes, and lush green forests full of wildlife. Rajasthan is often expressed as a huge open-air museum with many relics, that are well preserved for the new generations and its visitors.
