In this selection of itineraries you will find a focus on the northern and central states of India. Delhi and Mumbai are the major hubs and provide a vast array of flight connections into the central states. Rajasthan is famous for its mighty citadels, resplendent cities and luxurious palace hotels to name just of its many highlights. Next door is Madhya Pradesh; India’s heartland with the incredible national parks which inspired Kipling’s ‘The Jungle Book’, the spiritual town of Maheshwar and the evocative splendour of places such as Bhopal, Gwalior and Khajuraho. Uttar Pradesh is not just about Agra and the iconic Taj Mahal, it is also home to up and coming Lucknow and the vibrant religious city of Varanasi. Up in the very north west is the Punjab, bordering Pakistan, with its religious diversity, distinctive culture and the famous golden temple in Amritsar.
