Day 2 Delhi/Udaipur (1B) Dive into the heart of India’s capital to explore Old Delhi. Visit Delhi’s famous Jama Masjid (Great Mosque) and climb the minaret for a bird’s eye view of the Old City. Walk through Chandni Chowk, one of India’s oldest and busiest markets, and learn the history of the Sikh religion at the important Gurduwara (Sikh place of worship), Gurdwara SisGanj. Stop for photos at the colourful spice market before finishing at the Victorian Connaught Place, one of the most prominent architectural remnants of British rule. Included Activities: Jama Masjid Visit Chandni Chowk Visit Gurdwara Sis Ganj Visit Connaught Place Visit Transport: Plane (1.50 hour(s))
Day 3 Udaipur (1B, 1D) Visit Udaipur's City Palace, which stands on the east bank of Lake Pichola, a massive series of palaces built at different times starting from 1559. There is also time to visit Jagdish Mandir, the largest temple in the city, before we head out to Bagore Ki Haveli, a palace on the shore of Lake Pichola, where we enjoy a culture show. Included Activities: City Palace Visit Jagdish Temple Visit Bagore-ki-Haveli Cultural Show
Day 4 Udaipur (1B) A morning boat trip around Lake Pichola will give us a better perspective on the beauty of the lake. There is free time after this on Day 4 to explore the city at leisure. Included Activities: Pichola Lake Boat Tour
Day 5 Udaipur/Tordi (1B, 1D) Continue on through the desert along a small road, usually accessible via smaller vehicles. Heading northwards, we are on the way to Tordi Garh, a small remote village where we will stay in an old palace. After arriving, walk around this small area, populated by just 2,000 people. The locals are very friendly and the children are inquisitive, especially if you want to take a picture of them! The owner will take you on a walk around the village through various temples, residential areas, community areas, and the general market. In the evening, opt to visit the dunes to watch the sun set over the wilderness. Included Activities: Tordi Sagar Local Village Tour Tordi Sagar Camel Cart Ride Transport: Private Vehicle (5.00 hour(s), 280km)
Day 6 Tordi/Jaipur (1B) Travel to the capital of Rajasthan and the former capital of a princely state of the same name, Jaipur. Clothed in pink stucco (in imitation of sandstone), wide-avenued Jaipur is one of the most important heritage cities in India, and marvel at the Hawa Mahal (Palace of the Winds). Here, follow in the footsteps of the royal harem or visit the Amber Fort Palace, one of the most spectacular forts in India. Included Activities: Amber Fort Guided Tour Jaipur Cycle-Rickshaw Tour Transport: Private Vehicle (2.00-2.50 hours, 130km)

Day 8 Ranthambore National Park (1B, 1L) Travel to the small town of Sawai Madhopur, where Ranthambore National Park, one of the original Project Tiger Reserves, is located. The undoubted highlight of a visit to Ranthambore, if not the entire trip to India, is the chance to see tigers in their natural habitat. While there is never any guarantee of seeing tigers, numbers have been on the rise in Ranthambore over the last few years, so the chances are good. The park contains a wide variety of wildlife, from sambar deer to abundant birdlife. Included Activities: Ranthambore Safari Local School Visit
