Tour description provided by Intrepid

Travel to India and visit the enchanting northern province of Rajasthan. One of the most beautiful places to visit in India, Rajasthan is awash with colour and the nostalgia of a romanticised era. On our classic adventure we discover the grisly history of massive forts and the opulence and splendour of Maharajas' palaces. Stroll bustling markets, enjoy a sunset camel safari and soak up the culture of the local people. This is truly the essence of Rajasthan.
