Highlights

    • Experience old and new India in the bustling streets of Delhi, where ancient temples stand against billboards advertising Bollywood films
    • Discover the ancient forts, lake palaces, rural villages and colourful cities of Rajasthan: sandy red Jaisalmer, blue Jodhpur, white Udaipur and pink Jaipur
    • Ride out into the Thar Desert on a camel safari. Feast on Rajasthani cuisine at sunset before bunking down to camp between the sand dunes
    • The Taj Mahal in Agra may be one of the most recognisable buildings in the world, but its poetic history and beauty have the power to surprise even the most jaded travellers. Here's everything you need to know about your visit: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/adventures/taj-mahal-travel-guide/
    • Pushkar and Varanasi are among the holiest cities in India. Climb to hilltop temples at sunrise, dodge cows in the street, and observe pilgrims praying and bathing along the ghats of the sacred Ganges River during a boat cruise
    • A homestay with a local family is a special experience, especially in the serene backwaters of Kerala
    • The city of Madurai showcases southern India at its liveliest. Explore the city’s bazaars and discover the colourful, intricately carved Sri Meenakshi Temple
    • Visit the World Heritage-listed Virupaksha Temple in Hampi, a spectacular monument surrounded by ruins
    • Golden beaches and age-old fishing villages make Goa one of India’s most tranquil retreats – and the perfect last stop on your adventure
