A true invitation to India, this tour takes us to the historic city of Delhi, the stately forts and palaces of Jaipur and to the eternal monument to love - the Taj Mahal. We go off the beaten track to seek the elusive tiger in Ranthambore, spend a day in a typical village and visit a bird sanctuary. Ideally suited for first time visitors with limited time or for those who seek group travel with an independent extension.

The varied accommodation includes a modern luxury hotel in Agra, a first class period hotel in Delhi and charming royal mansions in Jaipur and Bharatpur. The jungle resort in Ranthambore is simple though comfortable, in keeping with its surroundings.

The internal travel is by coach or car, with air-conditioning when required. The international flights are on direct non-stop services of British Airways from Heathrow. The flying time to Delhi is around 9 hours.

You travel with a small group, accompanied by one of our excellent hand-picked tour escorts.
