This budget tour provides a fantastic introduction to exploring Northern India and could form the perfect start to a longer stay in India, or as a complete tour in itself. The tour combines the famous ‘Golden Triangle’ of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur with time in Ranthambore National Park. You’ll start with a fun rickshaw ride around Delhi, trying some local snacks and getting the hang of making your way around in an Indian city. You’ll see the beautiful Taj Mahal of course (we visit at sunset when the light is at its best), the deserted city of Fatehpur Sikri, and also have time to explore the ‘Pink City’ of Rajasthan, Jaipur. On top of this we add in several wildlife safaris in search of tigers and other wildlife in Ranthambore National Park. Options are available to add a wide range of further sightseeing tours and extensions.
The tour finishes in Jaipur, the capital of the desert state of Rajasthan, from where we can arrange further tours of Rajasthan (e.g. to Pushkar, Udaipur & Jaisalmer), arrange transport back to Delhi, or tours to other areas in northern and southern India. Alternatively, you can continue your travels independently, with the backup of local contacts nationwide who are available to provide assistance if necessary.
