Mystical and spiritual, chaotic and confounding, India overflows with riches.  Staying at excellent hotels, your small group, limited to just 24 guests, travels the classic Golden Triangle:  bustling Delhi; Agra, home of the sublime Taj Mahal; and Jaipur, great city of the Rajput.  Start your 17-day tour in the Indian capital touring Old Delhi and New Delhi.

Continue to the “pink city” of Jaipur, known for its pink sandstone buildings, and enjoy a home-hosted dinner with a multi-generational Rajasthan family.  Spend two nights at Ranthambore Tiger Preserve, taking game drives in search of the Bengal tiger, then embark on a camel safari in Kalakho to meet the Meena tribespeople.  Travel to Agra to visit the awe-inspiring Taj Mahal and Agra Fort.  Conclude your exploration in the holy city of Varanasi, and visit nearby Sarnath, one of Buddhism’s holiest sites.  An optional 5-day/4-night guided post-tour extension to Nepal is also available.
