    Depart the UK on an overnight flight to Delhi.

  2. Day 2: Arrive Delhi, afternoon visit Old Delhi

    Arrive in Delhi and take an afternoon tour of Old Delhi, visiting the Crafts Museum and Connaught Place. There is an opportunity afterwards to visit the Red Fort or take a ride on a cycle rickshaw through Old Delhi.

  3. Day 3: Drive to Nawalgarh, camel-cart safari

    Make the journey from busy Delhi to the small town of Nawalgarh, in time for an exciting camel-cart safari around the town, taking in the amazing temples and beautiful sunset.

  4. Day 4: Continue to Jaipur

    See some beautiful frescoes on temples and palaces on a walking tour around Nawalgarh, before continuing this afternoon to the Pink City, Jaipur. After an orientation tour, the afternoon is at leisure.

  5. Day 5: Jaipur: Bollywood film & puppet show

    This morning, head to Amber Fort, a magnificent hill-top palace complex. This afternoon, there's a trip to the spectacular Raj Mandir Cinema to see a Bollywood film, and then later, an evening puppet show.

  6. Days 6-7 : Drive to Ranthambore National Park

    Travel into the heart of rural India to Ranthambore National Park where, over the next two days, you will enjoy three game drives. The park is spread over a vast area of forest with waterfalls and lakes and is famous for its tigers as well as chital, sambhar deer, blue bull and chinkara, and a variety of birdlife.

    Ranthambore Fort, located inside the park, is rich in archaelogical monuments, including the temples of the God Ganesh and Maa Kali.
