Detailed Description

India is bursting with colors and aromas that you will bask in during your 12-day family tour to Northern India. From Agra to Jaipur and from Ranthambore to Fatehpur Sikri, you will explore a landscape shimmering with golden deserts and dry tropical forest. Whether indulging in the sandalwood aromas of incense as you stroll down the market aisles of bazaars or in search of Bengal tigers that hide in the underbrush, your family will create everlasting memories by being immersed in the culture and by uncovering the majestic history of the country.

Your family adventure of Northern India will begin with your arrival in Delhi, where you will have two nights to explore the captivating ambiance of the city’s eight historic districts. A private tour of the city will introduce your family to the interesting and unique architecture of India, from the India Gate to the Red Fortress. As you travel to Agra, you will traverse the fabulous Mughal history of the famous city with guided tours to often-overlooked sites along the banks of the Yamuna River, such as Itmad-ud-Daula’s tomb. Afterward, you will delight in the magnificent colors and prestigious architectural design of the Taj Mahal during a sunrise tour.

Before arriving in Ranthambore, you will venture to the depths of Fatehpur Sikri, which is the former capital of the Mughal Empire. The former capital is brimming with red sandstone and marble details, and your time in the national park will embrace the sounds of the jungle. In the jungle, you will wait for the possibility of viewing prowling Bengal tigers during a guided safari. With three nights in Jaipur, your family will discover hidden aspects of the history around the city, including the stepwell of Chang Baori and the astronomical tools of the royal observatory.

You will spend time traversing the grandeur of the City Royal Palace, where you will find elaborate details that adorn the most intricate spaces of the Amber Fortress. With one night in Nawalgarh and Alsisar, your guides will introduce you to the fabulous artwork and distinctive culture of the havelis, which are established mansions adorned with wooden gates and frescoes. Your final night in Delhi will allow your family to explore the vibrant aisles of the Chandni Chowk bazaar, where saris and jewelry adorn the merchant stands alongside spices and celebrated street food.
