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.  Begin the 17-day exploration with Old and New Delhi’s important sights and a rickshaw ride.  Discover the “pink city” of Jaipur, enjoying a home-hosted dinner with a Rajasthan family.  Take game drives in Ranthambore National Park in search of the elusive Bengal tiger.

Embark on a camel cart safari in pastoral Kalakho to meet Meena tribespeople.  Marvel at Agra’s awe-inspiring Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, and savor an Indian cuisine cooking lesson.  Experience life along the sacred Ganges in Hinduism’s holiest city, Varanasi, and visit nearby Sarnath, one of Buddhism’s holiest sites.  Absorb the beauty of the Himalayan kingdom of Nepal on an optional 5-day/4-night post-tour extension.
