Get a taste of Old Delhi

Start your Indian adventure in capital city Delhi. Join your guide in a rickshaw to explore the narrow lanes and alleyways of Old Delhi. Expect myriad colours, sounds and smells as your tuk-tuk winds in and out of the narrow streets. Make sure to sample some street food, where stuffed parathas (deep-fried stuffed bread) or sticky jalebis (sugary deep-fried dough).

Your guide will also introduce you to the sights of this grand city, starting with the World Heritage site of Humayun’s Tomb and the imposing India Gate, a memorial to 82,000 soldiers who died during World War One.

View Agra's Taj Mahal

Begin your trip to Agra early on that most Indian of transport – the train. India’s rail network is spread over 115,000km and transports 23 million people each day. Granted, you'll be travelling in air-conditioned first-class carriages, but this is a great opportunity to experience commuter life in such a populous city.

Once in Agra, you'll settle into your hotel with a direct view of the world-famous Taj Mahal. With your guide, you'll explore the architecture and history of this monument to love built by Shah Jahan for his wife Mumtaz. Take the time to see Agra's other sights, including the Agra Fort and Chandni Bazaar. If time allows, visit the ancient ruins of the sandstone city of Fatehpur Sikri on the outskirts of Agra.

Search for tigers in Ranthambore National Park

View the Rajasthani countryside on your four-hour drive from Jaipur to Ranthambore National Park, where you'll stay in a luxurious tented site in the outdoors -- complete with site butler.

This will be your base for exploring Rajasthan’s most beautiful national park. You'll take two morning and two afternoon guided game drives in search of Ranthambore’s tigers, but make sure to look out for the leopards, crocodiles and many other animals that call Ranthambore home.

Marvel at Jaipur's architecture

Known as the Pink City, Jaipur is a Rajasthani royal city that offers spellbinding sights and sounds. Its palaces, observatories and merchant buildings are painted in hues of red and pink, but its crowning jewel is the spectacular Amber Fort which towers over the city on a hillside a short drive from the city. Spend a couple of days exploring Jaipur, including its rich arts and crafts scene, before flying back to Delhi to connect with your international flight.

See Rajasthani palaces in Jodhpur

The beautifully preserved Blue City of Jodhpur is home to one of India's best forts. Perched high on a rock above Jodhpur's Old Town, Mehrangarh Fort's collection of palaces and art galleries are beautifully maintained.

Then, head to the Old Town to view its landmark clocktower, before exploring the bazaar and street stalls. Live like royalty by staying at the Umaid Bhawan Palace. Constructed in 1944, it is one of the last grand palaces to be built in India and parts of it are still occupied by the royal family of Jodhpur.

From here, you'll be able to explore the lakes and labyrinthine streets of Udaipur. Take the time to see the various havelis (merchant houses) of Udaipur -- they're known for their ornate architecture.

From Udaipur, you'll take an internal flight to Delhi before connecting to your international flight.

From the time we first contacted them to when we arrived back from our holiday, Yonder delivered everything and more they promised. The trip they planned for us was perfect and confirmed their detailed knowledge of the country and places we visited. When a small hiccup occurred it only took a call to them for it to be sorted while we had dinner at one of the fantastic hotels they chose for us. They really did give the personal supported service throughout our trip that so many other firms just claim. We now have some fabulous memories to keep us going till we plan our next trip with them.

Our accommodation was first rate and our personal driver was not just knowledgeable but a pleasure to travel with. We were thoroughly looked after at all hotels and the sights and experiences that were arranged for us were all first class. Keep up the good work guys.
