Rajasthan is undoubtedly
the most colourful part of India; despite being such a harsh arid area that culminates
in the Thar Desert. It's the juxtaposition of the deep orange and browns of the
desert with the iridescent reds, yellows, blues and greens of the saris, dhotis,
and turbans that create such a vibrant atmosphere. Add in the spectacle of the multi
coloured spice market, spectacular sunsets over blood orange desert sands, the
vivid deep blues of Jodphur town houses, and the mirror whites of Udaipur and
you get a feel for what awaits the traveller in Rajasthan.This trip
takes us through the great cities of Rajasthan, through the deserts and beyond
to some of India's hidden gems and none more so than the Ghost City of Mandu;
yes, its way off the beaten track and takes a long time to get there, but
that's why so few folks visit. Add to this the great sites and cave temples of
Ellora and Ajanta and you have an amazing trip. Above all its about rural India
and village life…. Oh and, of course, Mumbai and Bollywood!

“I love the group experience and seeing a country warts and all from the road rather than the insides of airports and hotels. I like the Indian people and was surprised at how much I enjoyed the food.

The Indian cooking course was a highlight.”

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
