India is a colorful country of mysticism and wonder, full of architectural delights and stunning wildlife. Our new journey combines some of northern India’s most significant historical sites with a great wildlife safari. We explore Delhi’s ancient remains as well as its more recent colonial past. We also sample Rajasthan, touring Jaipur’s princely palaces and forts. Agra provides the incomparable Taj Mahal. Together these three cities form the so-called “Golden Triangle” of India. But we’ve added a little something special to the tour, Ranthambore National Park, one of the most picturesque game reserves in the world. Although famous for its tigers, the park also has a large population of panthers, crocodiles, deer and diverse bird life. From the bustling streets of Delhi, to the iconic, to the tigers of the exotic Ranthambore National Park, discover India’s delights for yourself on this exciting tour.
