Best of India

Few countries in the world stimulate the five senses with as much intensity as India. From the buzzing energy of Delhi and the abundance of crafts in Jaipur to the solemn beauty of the Taj Mahal in Agra, India’s many regions offer larger-than-life experiences that are spectacular in very different ways. This itinerary makes an approachable trip out of a complex and layered destination that can otherwise become overwhelming. It offers ample time to explore lavish palaces, immerse yourself in Hindu culture and see all the highlights of India’s major cities—Delhi, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Jaipur and Agra—with an insider’s perspective.

A spot on this trip can be reserved with a deposit of $2,500 per traveler, refundable before April 5, 2021. After April 5, 2021, the deposit is nonrefundable, and the remaining balance is due on July 15, 2021.
