Highlights

India is a destination that is as captivating as it is culturally rich and diverse. A 24 day India Grandeur is the perfect way to discover it all.

Touch down in Delhi and get ready to thrill your senses. Delhi is as fast-paced, chaotic and overwhelming as capital cities come – and that is exactly where its magnetism lies. Explore Old Delhi, wander the grounds of the Red Fort, and hold on tight as you whizz through narrow laneways in a cycle rickshaw. Make the jump into New Delhi and move between its monuments including India Gate and Qutub Minar.

Be captivated as you catch sight of the impressive Taj Mahal. This monument to love is a manmade marble wonder and is worth the early wakeup call. Revel in the magnificent architecture of Rajasthan as you explore the coterie of fortresses and palaces in Jodhpur and Jaipur. Watch the sunset over the holy lake in Pushkar and take to the water with a cruise on Lake Pichola in Udaipur.

Explore local markets in Mumbai and take a city tour in Chennai. Stop off at an ashram to connect with your inner peace, and point out roaming elephants in a wildlife sanctuary. Float along the network of canals and lagoons that make up Kerala’s backwaters and spent the night cruising on a traditional Indian houseboat.
