Sunday, October 6, 2024 to Tuesday, October 22, 2024

Mystical and spiritual, chaotic and confounding, India overflows with riches. Staying at excellent hotels, your small group travels the classic Golden Triangle: bustling New Delhi; Agra’s Taj Mahal; and the sandstone “Pink City“ Jaipur. The 17-day journey begins with Old and New Delhi’s important sights like Qutb Minar and Lal Qila. Travel south to Jaipur to see the stunning Hawa Mahal palace, Amber Fort, and a home-hosted dinner with a Rajasthani family. Search for the elusive Bengal tiger on game drives in Ranthambore National Park, then meet people of the Meena community in pastoral Kalakho. In Agra, encounter the awe-inspiring Taj Mahal, tour imposing Agra Fort, and take an Indian cuisine cooking lesson. Experience life along the sacred Ganges in Hinduism’s holiest city, Varanasi, and visit nearby Sarnath, one of Buddhism’s holiest sites.
