Could anyone give me their thoughts on planned 2 week trip to rajasthan end of March / start of April -
We're not going to Agra as I have been before.
Sat 23/03 - arrive in Delhi
Sun 24/03 - Delhi
Mon 25/03 Take early morning train to Jaipur
Tue and Wed, elephant festival and Holi getting late train on Wed to Ranthambore
Thurs - Ranthambore and overnight train to Udaipur
Fri - Monday Udaipur
Tue - leave for Jodhpur (bus / taxi ... suggestions?)
Wed - Jodphur
Thurs - pm take flight back to Delhi
Fri - Delhi, flying out Sat.
I'm very aware it's not a lot of time and don't want to be too too rush, thoughts would be much appreciated

2I would suggest to skip Ranthambore. The amount of time you think of spending there does not do justice to it. You can replace that with Bundi if you want.
I would suggest taking a cab between Udaipur and Jodhpur. This will enable you to see Ranakpur / Kumbhalgarh or both on the way to Jodhpur. If you plan on seeing both it would be a long day for you.

3I go along with #2 wrt Ranthambore.
There are 2 must-sees in Rajesthan being Udaipur and Jaiselmeras they are quite unique.
Everyone seems to want to see the bling of Jaipur.
Bundi is delightful and quite remote from a transport aspect but with a shortage of time - it is almost imperative to use car+driver.
May I dare suggest the following
JAIS ( travel to UDA either by buses or car visiting Ranakpur en route)
UDAI (stay in lal Ghat havelis)
JODH (if you have time)
Have a great trip

4Thanks for tips. Do you think it would it be worth doing ranthambore if we allowed time for p.m safari, then a.m. and p.m safaris?
Would love to do jaisalmer but given that it's a ten hour round trip from jodhpur and all the rest of the travelling before and after just makes me think it's not possible (enjoyable) in the time we have.
