Grand Tour of India


Explore the Golden Triangle and Kerala

Full of fascination, this wonderful tour begins in mesmerising Delhi, and takes in 'Pink City' Jaipur before crossing Rajasthan's dusty plains to the rolling hill country of the legendary 'Tigers of Ranthambhore'. Agra's fabled Taj Mahal is brought thrillingly to life before you fly south to old Cochin, gateway to Kerala's languid waterways. A journey into lush, forested uplands, a visit to eye popping Madurai's exotic temples, and a night in a traditional hill station complete this memorable journey.
