India...what an amazing, mysterious, vibrant, diverse & fascinating country!
Join us for 20 wonderful days as we tour colourful Rajasthan, admire tigers & other wildlife in world famous Ranthambhore National Park, visit Agra, the Taj Mahal, Jaipur, Varanasi, help look after retired working elephants in an 'ellie' sanctuary, & more. And as a special treat, we’ve designed the itinerary around the spectacular Holi Festival which we’ll celebrate with the locals in a remote desert village at full moon! WOW! AND IT'S BEING OFFERED AT A SPECIAL HOLI FESTIVAL PRICE!
There will be local bazaars, restaurants, & markets to enjoy plus lots of cultural & fun activities. You’ll be immersed in the lifestyle, learn about the history, admire the crafts & architecture, meet the local people & enjoy the delicious cuisine. There will be optional yoga & Bollywood dance classes, a Bollywood movie, henna hand-painting & lots of lovely surprises – we’ll even learn how to tie turbans & saris!
Beginning & ending in Delhi, the adventure will be personally escorted by Jeremy and Jan of Global Gypsies & our national guide from Delhi-based Kipling Travels, as well as professional local English-speaking guides. We’ll travel by air-conditioned coach, train, 4WD's, rickshaws (tangas) – and, of course, we’ll visit the Exotic Marigold movie sets!
We'll stay in quality accommodation (some hotels are former maharajah's palaces!) with most meals included. Package does not include international air fares.
