With its colourful markets, vibrant cities and amazing wildlife, India is the perfect destination for an unforgettable family adventure. You’ll be taken care of every step of the way with your own expert guide who will accompany you from the minute you step off the plane until the very end of your trip.
You’ll start by exploring Delhi, India’s vast and fascinating capital. Wind your way through its bustling streets, past rickshaws, bicycles and cows on privately guided tours that offer an insight into the local culture and day-to-day life in the city. You’ll also visit the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib Sikh temple where you’ll have fun making chapattis and stirring the huge pots of dal in the community kitchen.
It’s then on to Agra, home to the beautiful Taj Mahal. You’ll visit the iconic marble mausoleum at sunrise when it is looking its most magical, illuminated by the soft morning light. You’ll also get to explore the surrounding area with a village walk, a wonderful opportunity to get a glimpse into life in rural India.
From Agra you’ll make tracks to Ranthambore in search of its majestic tigers. Driving through the park with your expert guide, all sets of eyes will be on stalks as you look out for pawprints in the ground and flashes of orange between the trees. There are also plenty of sprightly deer, colourful birds and mischievous monkeys to keep you entertained along the way. After a day of exploring, your luxury safari lodge is the perfect place for some quality time together and family dinners under the stars.
The next wildlife encounter is a night at Dera Amer elephant camp where you’ll spend time in the company of these gentle giants. There’s more of the countryside to be explored with a walk through the Aravalli Hills and a visit to the magnificent Amber Fort before you make you way to Jaipur, the final stop.
The capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur is a city full of energy and there’s lots of fun to be had with a block printing workshop and a visit to the Galta Ji temples, frequented by tribes of monkeys who come to splash in the water pools. On your final night you’ll visit Nahargarh Fort and gaze out across the city as the sun sinks behind the horizon.
