When most people think of India, what comes to mind are magnificent palaces and forts, brightly colored saris, elaborate turbans, dusty villages and of course, the Taj Mahal. The magic and romance of India in short; an India which delights, infuriates and amazes, often all at once.
Welcome to Rajasthan and India's famous 'golden triangle' of Delhi, Jaipur and the Taj Mahal. This region continues to serve as the hub and jumping off point for a majority of first-time visits to India. Although the options are endless, the framework of a trip covering the magnificent cities of Rajasthan, alongside Delhi and Agra works brilliantly well.
Here are some ideas as a starting point, though we'd encourage you to discuss your ideas with us. Each holiday to India should be completely individual: it's impossible to make the most of this magnificent and beguiling country if not.
