Explore Old Delhi

Start your Indian adventure in capital city Delhi. Your guide will introduce you to the sights of this grand city, starting with the World Heritage site of Humayun’s Tomb, Gandhi’s eternal flame and the imposing India Gate, a memorial to 82,000 soldiers who died during World War One.

Make sure to explore the narrow streets of Old Delhi, founded in 1639 by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, who moved the Mughal capital here from Agra. Try street food, marvel at the architecture and absorb your surroundings – it’s crowded and chaotic, but this is the real India.

Take the train and marvel at the Taj Mahal

You’ll begin your trip to Agra early in the morning and that most Indian of transport – the train. India’s rail network is spread over 115,000km and transports 23 million people each day. You’ll be journeying from the comfort of a first-class carriage, but you’ll still take in the sights, sounds and smells of travel in India.

Your arrival into Agra will give you your first glimpse of the world-famous Taj Mahal. Spend a couple of days exploring this monument to love (Emperor Shah Jahan built it to house the tomb of his wife Mumtaz Mahal), as well as Agra Fort and Chandni Bazaar. If time allows, visit the ancient ruins of the sandstone city of Fatehpur Sikri.

Get cultural in Jaipur

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 Amer 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.

Encounter desert nomads in Jaisalmer

Travel to the far-flung western edge of Rajasthan to see the Golden City of Jaisalmer. Located in the heart of the imposing Thar desert, you'll encounter desert nomads, camel caravans, colourful clothing and a city full of charming buildings. With your guide, you'll explore the labyrinth of streets and the desert beyond.

Float on the lakes of Udaipur

Home to five interconnecting lakes, Udaipur is known as the 'Venice of India' and is one of the country's most romantic cities. Float across Lake Pichola to your floating hotel, visit the City Palace and Jag Mandir and take a guided shopping trip down the mazy alleyways of the old city.

End in iconic Mumbai

Fast-paced Mumbai is the brash, celebrity-filled city of entertainment. Here, Bollywood stars mingle with cricket legends and you'll get a taste of luxury with your stay at the famous Taj Mahal hotel.

It's not all about modern Mumbai though -- your guide will take you on a tour of Mumbai's rich culture and fascinating history, including its crumbling colonial-era architecture.

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.

Used Yonder recently for a holiday for my girlfriend and I and I have nothing but positive feedback for them. The holiday was expertly planned and exceeded our expectations. 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.
