Rajasthan Tour Packages

Rajasthan is a fairy tale universe unto itself, its culture made of fables and myths, of golden deserts and sparkling lakes, ancient havelis (manors), impenetrable fortresses and magnificent palaces. Desert Magic Unleashed is an exemplary expedition, where the travellers can ski over the prime historic places of Rajasthan like Jaipur, Pushkar, Udaipur, Ranthambore, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Mandawa and Bikaner.

Camels pass by nodding to you as you see Rajasthan gives new meaning to colours when you come across countless shades of this cultural domain of India. This was where the Rajputs reigned and made it synonymous with courage, honour and chivalry.

Day 01 / Arrival Delhi
Welcome to Delhi, the Indian capital. Before meeting your surprises, our staffs will take you to your hotel to freshen. Night stay in Delhi.

Day 02 / Delhi
Proceed for sightseeing tour of Old & New Delhi post breakfast: OLD DELHI - A sight-seeing tour of Old Delhi involves paying a visit to the Raj Ghat- where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated, Jama Masjid- the biggest mosque in India and the Red Fort that stands facing the Masjid. NEW DELHI - An all-embracing trip of New Delhi includes paying your respect at the Humayun’s Mausoleum and visiting the Qutub Minar. A short drive along the official boulevard, Rajpath is the highlight of the tour as you can take in the legendary India Gate, the Lutyen gem Parliament House and the Rashtrapati Bhavan. The exploration gracefully comes to a halt at the Diplomatic Enclave. Night stay in Delhi.

Day 03 / Delhi - Agra (By road Approx. 4 Hrs)
You will set out towards Agra, Delhi’s more soulful sister immediately after breakfast. You can check in to your hotel room upon arrival and washes off the cramps and fatigues, if any. Later on, call at the Agra Fort (almost a clone of Red Fort) with Pearl Mosque as its huge draw. Resting serenely on the Yamuna bank, it greets you with centuries old fables from the Mughal Era. Treat your eyes to the Diwan-I-Khas (hall of private meeting) where white marble pergolas with flowery engravings give an otherworldly feel. The Emperor’s jewel-studded peacock throne is still there. Don’t miss the tomb of Itmad-up-Dau erected by Noorjehan in the honour of her father. Night stay in Agra.

Day 04 / Agra - Jaipur (By road Approx. 5 Hrs.)
Yes, it’s the day you have been anticipating much for this tour for today you are going to feast your eyes on the wondrous Taj Mahal. No amount of descriptions or even photographs can do justice to it. The crimson rays of sun bathing the pearly poetry in stone is beyond beautiful, yet humbling too. One of the 7 wonders, it was built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan to enshrine his love for his wife Mumtaz. Watch the beauty, love, sacrifice and grandeur maerge into a single entity, the Taj Mahal. Enjoy a traditional breakfast before driving to Jaipur, the first step to desert magic. But do not forget to stop enroute at the Fatehpur Sikhri, constructed by Akbar in the 16th century. The olden ruins, fortifications and overall grandeur (Jama Masjid, Panch Mahal etc) makes you pity that the beautiful city had to be abandoned for water scarcity. Check into your hotel when you reach Jaipur. Night stay in Jaipur.

Day 05 / Jaipur
Morning excursion to Amber Fort. Elephant ride ascent to the fort. A bucolic city spread with mansions, palaces, fortifications, museums, ancient cultures and the like, Jaipur has the colourful mud shade all over the walls of the old city. A pillar of the well-known Golden Triangle Tour, Jaipur presents everything fastidious and fine-looking. From camel pushcarts, flecked fabrics and historic cars to conventional men donning gay turbans, the city boasts of all that are contentedly traditional.
AMBER FORT PALACE - Amber is the characteristic quixotic Rajasthani Fort Palace, hailing from the 16th century. It has an excitingly sinister peripheral that contradicts its inner beauty where a handsome mixture of Mughal and Rajput architectural styles reach its exemplary expression.
The Amber Fort region is a teensy bit frenzied with shops and touts sprouting on the road that directs to its entrance gates. CITY PALACE - The principal appeal of the old city of Jaipur is its City Palace together with the close by observatory Jantar Mantar, housing several bulky astronomical appliances that are still in use and the much-admired Hawa Mahal (Palace of Wind). It is an imposing structure sprawling over 1/7 of the walled Jaipur, an abode of City Palace Museum, Chandra Mahal and the Shri Govind Dev shrine. .

HAWA MAHAL - Jaipur’s most idiosyncratic hallmark, the Hawa Mahal is an incredible five-storeyed, dexterously honeycombed and crimson sandstone edifice with intricate telliswork and arty balconies. It was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawaj Pratap Singh to facilitate women of the stately house to look at the life and convoys of the city. It’s an astounding model of Rajput creativity, and stays a grand place for people-gazing from behind the tiny shutters. Night stay in Jaipur.

Day 06 / Jaipur - Udaipur ( By road Apprx. 8 Hrs.) via Pushkar
Morning drive to Udaipur- a beautiful retreat in the desert state of Rajasthan enroute visiting Pushkar. A small sleepy town, Pushkar surprises travellers with its gusto and energy at the time of the world famous Pushkar cattle fair. This place is famously known as formed when God Brahma dropped a lotus petal in the Pushkar Lake and is said to have chosen this place himself for his devotees. With its temple dedicated to Brahma as star attraction, Pushkar is home to over 400 temples and numerous bathing ghats. It is believed that a dip in the Pushkar lake washes away all your sins. Pushkar is also earning a name in the field of adventure tourism (Hot air ballooning). After saying farewell to Pushkar you reach Udaipur by nightfall. Night stay in Udaipur.

Day 07 / Udaipur
Morning city sight seeing tour of Udaipur (City of lakes) Yet another vestige of the Rajput magic, Udaipur was named after the Maharaja Udai Singh of the 16th century. It is regarded as a popular honeymoon destination and gushed as most romantic. Udaipur’s main charisma lies in its serene setting, right at the foot of the Aravallis with surprise springs and balmy lakes glisten in the sun. Apart from the awe-inspiring vistas, enjoy a walk to history at the City palace museum and the Folk Art Museum. Then there is the Jagdish Temple and the Pratap memorial; well worth your time. Relax unendingly by the lakes. Night stay in Udaipur.

Day 08 / Udaipur - Jodhpur (By road Apprx. 7 Hrs.) via Ranakpur
Post breakfast it is drive to Jodhpur and on the way pause a while at the Ranakpur, a far-flung city known for the Jain Temple there. Ranakpur is one of the five sacred places of the Jains. These temples hail from the 15th century AD and are protectively enclosed by a wall. The culture and simplicity of Jainism can be well appreciated in the structure of the shrines. Continue the journey to Jodhpur to reach there by end of the day. Night stay in a reserved hotel room in Jodhpur.

Day 09 / Jodhpur
Have a sumptuous Rajasthani breakfast, you have an entire day to breathe in the charm of Jodhpur. The multihued city of Jodhpur orbits around the fierce Rathore clique and is called after Rao Jodha, the head of the Rathores. Positioned at the fringe of the Thar, this majestic city resonates with legends of olden days in the bareness of the wilderness. Visit the graceful Mehrangarh Fort, perched on a low sandstone hillock. Within the citadel are the Moti Mahal and Phool Mahal. Also pause at the Jaswant Thada, an arresting marble commemorative, constructed in reminiscence of Maharaja Jaswant singh II and of course the Umaid Public gardens. Night stay in Jodhpur.

Day 10 / Jodhpur - Jaisalmer ( By road Approx. 7 Hrs.)
It is time to say goodbye to Jodhpur and start to Jaisalmer after breakfast. A pleasant golden yellow seems to dominate the city of Jaisalmer, inducing an image of matchless magic of desert. The simple smiling folk attired in bright clothes contrasts with the aggressive landscape of Jaisalmer. The first visit is naturally the 12th century Jaisalmer Fort and the charming havelis that rings it. You can never gaze enough at the uneven pictorial sand dunes nor camel safaris. Utterly rustic with cattle and vegetations on either side of the road, Jaisalmer is truly picture perfect and pristine. On arrival in Jaisalmer, check in to the hotel room reserved for you. Spend the rest of the day relaxing. Night stay in Jaisalmer.

But it has an even longer trading history as it was a major caravan route connecting Asia to Africa. Be it the impressive fortresses, opulently f

ashioned pink sandstone temples, the landmark Ganga Canal or the swift development of industrialization and farming (mostly bajra, jowar), Bikaner has always managed to take over the public eye for not only its ethnicity and legacy but also for its progression.
