Our journey through the historic state of Rajasthan reflects our expertise in this magnificent corner of India. From Delhi we board the Shatabdi train to the Pink City of Jaipur and visit the many historic sites as well as undertaking two innovative walking tours. We transfer to Jodhpur and explore the remarkable Mehrangarh fort and colourful markets while at Jaisalmer we explore the walled city that once formed part of the trade link between the Arabian Sea and Central India. Bikaner is the highlight of our journey including time at the Lallgarh Palace and our desert camp from where we undertake camel safaris while at night we are entertained by local musicians and dancers. A memorable conclusion to our remarkable journey before we return to Bikaner for our flight back to Delhi.
