The Highlights Of Northern India tour starts from and ends in New Delhi. It is a local culture trip that takes 9 days taking you through Ranthambore National Park, Jaipur and New Delhi in India. Highlights Of Northern India is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Northern India conjures up memorable and colourful images of turbans, saris, flavoursome curries and rickshaws. We visit the 'Pink City' of Jaipur, home to the wonderful former Maharaja's Palace and the splendid hilltop Amber Fort. Agra and the serene Taj Mahal are not to be missed and fully live up to expectations. An early morning boat ride through the mist along the ghats of Varanasi is probably the most sensory intoxicating excursion in India and is both fascinating and deeply moving – an experience only equalled by spotting a tiger in Ranthambore National Park.

New Year around Northern India
3 - Average
“This is a fast paced tour around some of the popular tourist sites of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh states. There's a good variety to see, but fog was something of a hindrance on most mornings at this time of year (late December) and resulted in an itinerary change that meant we missed out on Varanasi, but saw the less frequently visited sites of Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur and Mathura instead.”
unexpected let down
3 - Average
“Booked the Golden Triangle trip that went Boxing day and returned January. Knew it was going to be fast paced trip ( had 'done' Egypt some years ago) However, after an overnight flight ( 8 hours - plus the 3 hr before at airport and the hour or so when landed ) found the 5+ hours straight off on 'coach' very tiring.
Jaipur - pink city was good. loved the elephants with their decorations. Taj was good and worth a visit- be prepared for it to be shrouded in mist at this time of year.
Then all went wrong- overnight train cancelled -therefore not go to Varanansi, no trip on Ganges etc. Got put up in disgraceful hotel in Agra on New Years Eve. What a let down - cancelling Varanansi bad enough but better accommodation should have been sought. Alternative itinerary followed.Visit to Bharatpur and Mathura - another game park ( mainly birds ) and various temples. What made it worse was the trip before this one had experienced the same problem and yet no e mail was sent warning us of possibility of change.”
Highlights of Northern India trip
5 - Excellent
“I recently went on the Highlights of Northern India trip. The guide Ajay really looked after us and made the trip run smoothly from start to finish. The group were really friendly and I didn't feel as if I was on holiday alone at all. The itinerary certainly packed a lot in and we got a great overview of the sights to see in these towns. The Taj Mahal was breathtaking and I was so excited to see a tiger in Ranthambore National Park along with so many other animals and birds. This is a trip I will never forget.”
Sights of a lifetime
5 - Excellent
“From the majestic beast that is the Bengal tiger in its natural habitat to the architectural majesty of the Taj Mahal. From chaos-that-works of Delhi traffic to the spiritual calm of sunrise on the Ganges being rowed past the ghats of Varanasi. From demonstrations of handed-down skills of weaving and jewelry making to opportunities for bargain purchases. Truly sights, sounds and memories of a lifetime. And all under the confident and learned leadership of an outstanding guide. Enjoyed with an eclectic but bonding mix of fellow travellers.”
