Tour Map


Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Delhi

They take their horns very seriously on the roads here. A toot can mean anything from "I'm passing you", "I'm behind you", "get out of the way", or "you look very nice today".

Day 2: Agra - Taj Mahal

Leave your expectations on the train because this is better than any postcard. Is that a tear in your eye, or are your allergies playing up again?

Day 3: Tordi Garh

Everything seems brighter in this tiny village - the saris, the smiles, the marigold chains they put around your neck when you get here. Good thing you bought three pairs of Ray Bans for $11 in the markets of Delhi.

Day 4-5: Jaipur

After the Amber Fort, Palace of the Winds and Johari Jewellery Bazaar, let your local tour guide show you his favourite food hall for masala dosa and thalis.

Day 6-7: Delhi

Back in Delhi there's time for a hot shave and a haircut from one of the barbers lining the streets. You'll go home looking fresh as a daisy.

Tour Grade: Culture

Whether you’re taking in man’s greatest works at places like Petra or Angkor Wat, experiencing grand set-pieces like the Trans-Mongolian Railway or trying your hand at regional specialities like tango in Buenos Aires, getting to grips with local cultures is what travel’s all about. A few tips from a guide and a sense of adventure are pretty much all you need. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to get the lowdown on high Tibet among Lhasa’s magisterial temples; follow up Delhi’s eye-popping bustle with a fix of its fiery food; and mix manic markets and Incan masterpieces in Peru.
