At a glance

India is a country full of romance and intrigue. This honeymoon incorporates some of its most breathtaking sights, the chance to get under the skin of its bustling cities with privately guided tours, and a luxury tiger safari that brings you face-to-face with India’s majestic national animal.

Your adventure begins in Udaipur, an enchanting city built on a series of lakes and surrounded by the rolling Aravalli Hills. Explore the sprawling City Palace, wind your way through the maze of alleyways in the old city, and head out on a bike ride through the surrounding countryside. You’ll also get to experience the city in all its shimmering glory as you take to the lake for a sunset boat ride.

The next stop is Jaipur, the vibrant capital of Rajasthan. Here you’ll weave your way through its labyrinth-like bazaars bursting with stalls selling everything from saris and spices to bangles and henna. Delve into the city’s history with tours of the City Palace and Jantar Mantar observatory before heading north to Amber Fort, its mighty ramparts soaring up from the ground. You’ll then escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy some time at Dera Amer elephant camp in the company of these gentle giants.

The wildlife experiences continue as you spend two nights in Ranthambore National Park in search of its majestic tigers. Enjoy the natural beauty of India’s wilderness from your luxury safari lodge, relaxing after your game drives with a drink as the sun sinks over the horizon.

Your final stop in India is the Taj Mahal, the world’s greatest symbol of love. You’ll visit at both sunrise and sunset when it is at its most magical; the marble mausoleum is bathed in a soft golden glow, its reflection glittering in the Yamuna River. To end this magical honeymoon you’ll head to the Maldives for five nights. Spend your days on the powder white sand, dipping in and out of the sparkling Indian Ocean and relaxing at your luxury hotel.

The scenic city of Udaipur sits surrounded on all sides by the wooded Aravalli Hills, its grand palaces reflected in serene lakes. The old city is a bustling jumble of alleys and side streets, but tranquility is never far away, be it boating on one of the lakes or a panoramic view from the hilltop Monsoon Temple. For shoppers, Udaipur’s ancient bazaars and a vibrant arts scene make it a great place to find intricate Mughal inspired miniature paintings, marble and silver craft. For those seeking some adventure, the rolling countryside outside the city can be explored on foot or horseback.

Tour of Udaipur's City Palace Tour of Udaipur's City Palace

The City Palace, sat on the banks of Lake Pichola, is one of the architectural wonders of Rajasthan, its detailed art and workmanship a tribute to the skills of local craftspeople. A collection of towers, domes and arches, the Palace illustrates several architectural styles including Moghal and Rajput. The royal family claim to be 'surya vansh', descendents of the sun, and so the whole structure faces east and there is a stunning bejewelled image of the sun at the entrance. Inside the Palace there is an interesting collection of Rajput miniature paintings and the Crystal Gallery which houses an eccentric collection of art and furniture.

Guided walk through Udaipur's old city Guided walk through Udaipur's old city

Enjoy wandering the old city with your guide, winding your way through lanes that teem with cows, elephants and people. You'll pass shops, folk art hung on the walls of houses and pretty latticed haveli windows.

Jal Sanjhvi water painting Jal Sanjhvi water painting

Jal Sanjhvi is the art of drawing on water, a popular ritual performed at temples dedicated to Krishna where coloured powders are used to draw iconic images onto water. A full canvas takes about five hours to create, and you'll arrive in time to see the picture completed.

Cycle tour around Udaipur's lakes and surrounding countryside Cycle tour around Udaipur's lakes and surrounding countryside

This is a great introductory ride to see a very pretty side of Udaipur rarely visited by tourists. You will be taken by boat to a jetty where you will hop on your bikes ready to explore. Ride past the three lakes west of Udaipur town and through nearby villages, farms, and rolling green hills.

The capital of Rajasthan and its largest city, Jaipur is at once the state’s commercial hub and one of its most fascinating cultural destinations. The pace of life here is fast, but take your time and in this somewhat frantic city you'll find some of India’s most majestic palaces and atmospheric relics.

Visit the bazaars of Jaipur's old city Visit the bazaars of Jaipur's old city

Today you'll visit a temple and partake in a short puja ceremony, where the temple priest will perform worship for you and offer blessings. You will also take a walk through Jaipur's traditional markets filled with colourful fruit and vegetable stalls. Set against the backdrop of Sir Samuel Swinton Jacob's vernacular architecture, the bustling alleyways are still where many merchant families live today.

Maharaja Jai Singh II, the founder of the pink city, was an avid astrologer and built five observatories around northern India. The Jantar Mantar is the
largest of the five and houses what is believed to be the world's largest sun dial. The observatory consists of 14 geometric devices for measuring time, tracking constellations and observing the orbits around the sun.

Tour of Amber Fort Tour of Amber Fort

Amber, the ancient capital of the region, still recalls its heydays in the majestic ramparts rising steeply along the contoured hillsides. It is an extremely well preserved building and during your guided tour you'll visit the Jagmandir, or Hall of Victory, with its glittering mirrors, the Jai Mahal and Temple of Kali.

Visit Dera Amer elephant camp Visit Dera Amer elephant camp

Enjoy some time to relax outside the city at Dera Amer elephant camp, where a local family have rescued elephants from carrying tourists to and from Amber Fort. The beautiful and majestic Indian elephants are a joy to be around, and you'll enjoy learning about them from the mahouts. After spending some time with these majestic creatures, you'll make your way to a private venue to enjoy drinks around the fire followed by dinner.

Located in the southeastern corner of Rajasthan, Ranthambore National Park is perhaps the most famous place to spot wild tigers in India - and for good reason. You'll drive through the park in search of these beautiful and awe inspiring creatures with an expert guide who knows the park and its big cats like the back of their hand. As well as being a top tiger spotting destination, Ranthambore is a beautiful park to explore with the 10th-century fort towering over the surrounding plain, its crenellations now sun loungers for Hanuman langurs looking down onto the lakes below. The rest of the park’s jungle is littered with ancient temple ruins, often a favoured rest stop for wandering tigers.

It has graced the pages of books for centuries but nothing quite prepares you for seeing the Taj Mahal for the very fist time. The ultimate symbol of eternal love, this is one of India's most memorable and emotive sights. The Taj Mahal sits on the banks of the holy Yamuna River within 42 acres of beautiful gardens. The domed mausoleum sits 52m above the river bank, surrounded by minarets on all four sides. It is flanked by a mosque and a guest house, both made from red sandstone and mirror images of each other. There is no denying that the Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, is one of the main reasons people visit Agra. However, it’s well worth lingering to explore the city’s magnificent fort that lies just 3km to the west.

Sunset visit to the Taj Mahal Sunset visit to the Taj Mahal

Visiting the Taj Mahal at sunset is a truly magical experience, as the light plays on the marble of the tomb and its reflection shimmers in the water. Heartbroken after the death of his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal, during the birth of their 14th child, Shah Jahan set about building the world’s most beautiful monument in her honour. It took a workforce of more than 20,000 men 22 years to build, painstakingly making sure every slab of marble, precious stone and stroke of calligraphy was perfect. It is undoubtedly one of the most impressive sights on earth and the world's greatest symbol of love.

Sunrise visit to the Taj Mahal Sunrise visit to the Taj Mahal

As the light changes, so too does the colour of the Taj Mahal. One of the best times to visit is in the early hours when it is bathed in the ethereal glow of the morning light.
