Mystical and spiritual, chaotic and confounding, India overflows with riches. Staying at excellent hotels, your small group travels the classic Golden Triangle: bustling Delhi; Agra, home of the sublime Taj Mahal; and Jaipur, great city of the Rajput.

The 17-day exploration begins with Old and New Delhi’s important sights. Discovery of the “pink city” of Jaipur includes the stunning Hawa Mahal palace, Amber Fort, and a home-hosted dinner with a Rajasthan family. Search for the elusive Bengal tiger on game drives in Ranthambore National Park, then meet Meena tribespeople in pastoral Kalakho.

In ancient Agra, encounter the awe-inspiring Taj Mahal, see imposing Agra Fort, and take an Indian cuisine cooking lesson. Experience life along the sacred Ganges in Hinduism’s holiest city, Varanasi, and visit nearby Sarnath, one of Buddhism’s holiest sites.

Absorb the beauty of the Himalayan kingdom of Nepal on an optional 6-day/4-night post-tour extension that includes extensive sightseeing.
