The Wedding of Maharajas

North India - India - Rajasthan
'

Rajasthan, the name itself indicates the character of the region - Raja means "King" & sthan means "place". Rajasthan - "The Land of Kings or Maharajas". This trip to Rajasthan has been specially created to incorporate stays in exceptional places as well as opportunities to discover the fabulous beauty of this region of India. With a private driver, you will have the flexibility to stop along the way at places that interest you choose which route to take.

With its magnificent & charming palaces, superb fortresses and elegant “havelis” owned by proud Rajput lords, Rajasthan is one of the most charming regions of India. This trip to Rajasthan covers a mosaic of landscapes from the pleasant wooded and green Aravelli mountains to the intense arid region of the Thar desert. Start your trip in Delhi, from where you continue to Agra, the home of the magnificent Taj Mahal. Your next stop is the pink city of Jaipur, where you visit the Amber Fort before continuing through smaller and less-visited villages such as Samode, Pushkar, Deogarh and Delwara to reach your last stop: Udaipur

In addition to breathtaking ladscapes, this trip to Rajasthan offers you an incredible insight into mankind, from the peaceful Rebaris and Bishnoi shepherds wearing hugely coloured turbans to the warm welcome of the “Rajputs” for whom honour is more important than life, and the Gadulliya gypsies: nomadic blacksmith or musicians.. Enjoy living like a Maharaja in luxury accommodations - old forts converted into heritage hotels, still occupied by Rajput lords who are know for the warm welcome of their hosts...
