Overview

Legend has it that colour film was invented specifically to capture the vibrancy of India. (Okay, we made that up, but still…) This adventure offers a look at the history and heritage of this always surprising land, bringing you to the imperial Mughal cities of Agra and New Delhi, stunning capitals of the former princely states—home to sprawling haveli and Rajput-era palaces—and rural Rajasthan villages and fortified towns untouched by time. And with air-conditioned transport and accommodation throughout, you feel a little like royalty yourself.
