Totally India has introduced a new three-week cultural trip that provides a thorough introduction to the vast wealth of historic sights, sounds, smells and vibrant colours that this unique destination has to offer the discerning traveller.

The packed itinerary is designed to focus on three main aspects of India: the Mughals, the rural villages, and the rich wildlife.

The adventure commences by following in the footsteps of the Mughal rulers who left such dramatic reminders of their rule, including the Amber Fort at Jaipur, the deserted Fatehpur Sikri, and the incomparable Taj Mahal at Agra.

After discovering these extraordinary sites, the next part of the trip is designed to provide an insight into the day-to-day life of the Indian people with visits to some rural villages including Pachewar (which is where the famous Pechewari nan bread hails from) and staying in the renowned Pachewar Garh heritage hotel at Tonk.

The last section of the holiday includes visits to four of India’s National Parks: Ranthambore, Kanha, Bandhavgarh and Panna, plus visits see the temples at Khajuraho and the Fort Palace at Orcha, before taking an overnight train back to Delhi.

The small group trip (max. 16 people) departs on 18 October and costs from £1667 per person (two sharing a room).

This includes all land transportation (coach, train, camel cart, bullock cart, metro, rickshaws, jeep, and cantor – an open truck used for game viewing), two half-day guided tours of Delhi, guided tour of Jaipur, visits to national parks (with game drives) and bird sanctuary as detailed in the itinerary, guided tour of Fatehpur Sikri and Agra, 15 nights’ accommodation (including four nights in heritage hotels and an overnight train), most meals and the services of a tour leader throughout.

The price does not include flights but these are bookable through Totally India on request.
