Day-to-Day Itinerary : India: the Ultimate Itinerary

Day 1 Depart The UK

Fly from the UK to Delhi.

Days 2 & 3 Delhi

Your guide will meet you at the airport and transfer you to The Imperial, a glamorous hotel with excellent service, sophisticated guest rooms, colonial architecture and great facilities

During your time here, in order to get a sense of this sometimes chaotic, sprawling and disorientating city, you’ll take a guided exploration of both Old and New Delhi, taking in the main sites, but also building up a sense of where you are: taking in the sights and smells. You’ll travel by vehicle and rickshaw so you can get as close as possible to the incredible action

Days 4 & 5 Agra

Depart Delhi with your chauffeur for the drive along the excellent new highway to Agra where you’ll check in at the beautiful Oberoi Amarvilas with its excellent views of the Taj Mahal.

Here, with a private guide, you’ll explore The Taj itself and Agra Fort with its imposing red walls. You’ll also have chance to attend an 80-minute musical extravaganza depicting the romantic saga of Muhgal Emperor Shahjahan and his beloved wife Mumtaz for whom he created the Taj Mahal.

Days 6, 7 & 8 Amanbagh

 You’ll be transferred by road from The Oberoi Amarvilas to Amanbagh, a beautiful and luxurious base from which to begin your exploration of Rajasthan. The journey will be broken up with a stop at the ghost city of Fatehpur Sikri, this fairy-tale city in the desert is still in pristine condition, despite being completely abandoned 100’s of years ago.

Amanbagh is one of the most beautiful hotels in India so you’ll definitely want to relax and take advantage of the facilities and your immediate surroundings, but there are many fantastic local experiences to enjoy here too. A visit to the Ajabgarh Village is highly recommended, the nearby Somsagar Lake is a great spot for Yoga, a morning stroll or a private meal. And about 35 minutes away is Sariska National Park where you can spot wildlife including leopards, panthers, wildcats and many types of deer.

Days 9 & 10 Aman-I-Khas, Ranthambore National Park

It’s roughly a 4 hour transfer from Amanbagh to your superb luxury accommodation at Aman-I-Khas, an opulent tented camp on the edge of Ranthambore National Park.

Here you’ll enjoy game drives in an open top jeep where you'll have the chance of spotting tigers, hyenas, lizards and more. All meals are included during your stay at Aman-I-Khas

Days 11, 12 & 13 Jaipur

After a morning game drive your driver will transfer you onwards to Jaipur, the ‘Pink City’ and the third point of the famous Indian ‘Golden Triangle’ of tourist sites. Check in at your luxury hotel and there is time to relax or explore if you are keen.   

Jaipur is a riot of colour and as the capital of Rajasthan; it's a very busy place with buzzing spice markets and streets filled with multi-coloured saris and rampaging rickshaw drivers.

Here you’ll spend the day with a local guide exploring the city's Hindu and Mughul heritage and the many palaces and forts, home to intricate and exquisite Indian art and architecture, including the extraordinary Palace of the Winds. You’ll also have chance to take a 2 hour heritage walk with an expert local guide and to enjoy a cooking class and dinner with a local family.

Days 14 & 15 Jodhpur

Travel with your driver to Jodhpur where you’ll check in at your hotel.  Whilst here you’ll take a privately guided tour of the "Blue City”, so named after the many houses that are painted in various hues of blue. This incredible site is best seen from the imposing Mehrangarh Fort, the largest fort in Rajasthan, which looms over 100m above the city. Stroll through the winding alleyways of the Old City and visit the numerous palaces, temples and spice markets that are scattered throughout.

Days 16, 17 & 18 Udaipur

Your journey to Udaipur will take you via the famous and remarkable marble Jain temple at Ranakpur. It’s sublime and feels all the more extraordinary for being in the middle of seemingly nowhere.

There is plenty of time to relax and enjoy your hotel in Udaipur as well as to enjoy guided tours of the palaces and backstreets.  Additionally there is chance to take lunch with the Bedla family,  as the premier jagirdars (feudal landlords) of Udaipur, the Bedla family played a significant role in the affairs of the state over the centuries. Hear some of their fascinating stories whilst sampling a vast number of authentic culinary delights that have been honed over two centuries.
