Itinerary

Day One

Your holiday begins with an overnight flight from the UK to Delhi.

Day Two

Arrive in Delhi, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your hotel for lunch. This afternoon a guided tour of the Old City will introduce you to Jama Masjid Mosque and Raj Ghat, Gandhi's cremation site.

You'll also see the Red Fort and take a rickshaw ride through the narrow lanes of Chandni Chowk. Before evening falls you'll see some of the city's Imperial highlights including the India Gate war memorial, the vast boulevard of the Rajpath and Parliament House.

Day Three

Explore the ruins of the Quwwat-ul-Islam mosque and the ornate Qutb Minar tower, this morning. Later we'll plot a course for Agra, India's City of Love and site of the exquisite Taj Mahal. Built as a monument to undying love by grief-stricken Shah Jahan, after the death of his beloved wife, the Taj is seen in all its glory at sunset. Your guided tour of Agra will also take in the royal pavilions, palaces and courtyards of majestic Agra Fort.

Day Four

Start your day with an early morning and a sunrise visit to the Taj Mahal from across the Yamuna River. Afterwards, you'll visit Abhaneri, a small town famed for its amazing baoris (stepwells) and the mighty Harshat Mata Temple. Discover the architectural beauty of the Chand Baoli stepwell and its intricate carved panels.

Leaving Abhaneri you'll travel to Ranthambhore National Park, one of the prime examples of Indian conservation and your base for two nights. Once the hunting ground of Indian princes, this national park stands atop a 600-metre-high hill range and plays host to a number of India's elusive and endangered tigers.

After lunch, relax for the afternoon or take an optional visit to nearby Ranthambhore Fort. In the evening enjoy the 'tiger talk' with a local naturalist, in preparation for tomorrow's adventure.

Day Five

This morning you'll enjoy the first of two guided tours in search of some of the park's most revered inhabitants; striped hyenas, sambar deer, sloth bears and of course tigers (and maybe even a leopard). After lunch there will be another chance to see these and many other incredible creatures at close quarters, on your second guided tour into the park.

Day Six

Today you'll travel through Rajasthan to Jaipur, India's pink city, for a two-night stay. Settle into your heritage hotel in downtown Jaipur, and enjoy the on-site facilities, including a cooling outdoor pool.

Day Seven

Visit Amber, ancient capital of the Rajput Empire, with its magnificent palaces and temples dominated by the stronghold of the Amber Fort. Take time to marvel at the royal halls and the splendid views from the ramparts.

Day Eight

This morning you'll head north to Vanaashrya. En route you'll make a stop at the atmospheric ruined fort of Bhangarh, dating from the 17th Century, where you'll enjoy a welcome tea or coffee. After a relaxing afternoon, hop onto a camel cart and visit the local village before a pre-dinner cookery demonstration with the chef. You'll spend the night in your private, air-conditioned, tent designed to give a sense of the India of the past.

Day Nine

En route back to Delhi, for your final night's stay in India, we'll make a stop at the intriguing Heritage Transport Museum, which showcases the development of road, rail and air in India.

Day 10

Transfer back to the airport and board your flight back to the UK.

Further Information

2016 departures

The itinerary described applies to departures in 2017 and 2018. Departures in 2016 follow a different itinerary, which is available on request. In general the order shown above is followed in reverse in 2016, with the stay in Vanaashrya replaced with an overnight in Geejgarh. Duration and sightseeing in the cities visited is not changed.

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 30 minutes.

Passports and visas

British citizens require machine-readable passports when travelling overseas. Your passport must contain two blank pages and be valid for 180 days after your return date from India. A visa is also required for entry to India. Full details of how and when to apply will be sent out about eight weeks before departure. British CITIZENS and some other European nationals satisfying certain conditions may use the online e-Tourist Visa application process at a cost of $62 (US) per person. Other British passport holders, who are not British CITIZENS, must apply for a full visa which costs £92. You may also, at extra cost, use the services of CIBT, our recommended visa handling partner, who will handle the whole process for you. Note that all travellers of Pakistani descent, regardless of citizenship, will generally be subject to more detailed processing by the Indian authorities which can take up to four months from application.

On your flight

All outbound flights leave in the evening and land at your destination the next day. All return flights leave in the morning and land in the UK on the same day. On-board meals will usually include dinner and breakfast on outbound flights, and lunch and a snack on the flight home. Drinks are complimentary.

Luggage allowance

You are permitted to take one suitcase per person on the aircraft, which should not exceed 23kg.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Travel vaccinations

Requirements and advice can vary over time, and from person to person, so please contact your GP about eight weeks before your trip to check whether you need any vaccinations or any other preventive measures.

Itinerary changes

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

Changes to your hotels

Should circumstances require, we reserve the right to accommodate you in alternative hotels, of a similar standard, nearby. Full details of your hotels will be sent with your Final Travel Documents.

A wonderful experience. We'll researched hotels, excursions etc. Tour guide was very knowledgeable which made the trip even better. An excellent introduction to an amazing country with a rich culture and history. Watch out for hawkers though who are constantly present outside tourist attractions and the prices at the workshops and selected shops can be pricey especially if you don't know the going rate. It's easy to get sucked in to paying over the odds.

This holiday was fantastic, everything was so well planed. All visits were run to exception and our tour guide well! His name was Vinod and I must say I have never met such a lovely tour guide nothing was to much trouble for him what ever was asked of him he done it, he deserves an award. We had 2 disabled people on our tour and it is not easy to get them on and off the coach to do the tours especially in 48 degrees of heat but he was fantastic, the driver was also a very good driver as I have never seen so much traffic in all my life but he made it look easy getting through the traffic so well done him.
The tiger tour was great as we managed to see 4 tigers and the elephant ride was an experience I will never forget.
There was just one little thing that my husband did not like and it was the choice of food in some of the hotels. As he is not a curry eater, not because he does not like curry it is just that it upsets his stomach. He thought that maybe a bit more European food could have been offered. I must say that one of the hotels did make him some pasta when we asked. Just a bit of feedback for you. But over all a fantastic holiday and will definitely use Newmarket again for future holidays. Thank you.

I had the most amazing time, I didn't want to come home. Everything about it was spectacular, a Lot of time on the coach but all the sights made it worthwhile.

I would definitely do this again.
