Experience India at its best

Trade Travel has arranged a stunning fully escorted tour to India in October/November 2019.

The 15 day/14 night tour includes all the best sightseeing, most meals, luxury accommodation and a few surprises.

I still recall my first trip to India and often reminisce with my photos on what was one of the most fascinating counties I have ever visited.

This tour concentrates on what is known as the “Golden Triangle”. This will start with a direct flight from Melbourne to Delhi. A tour around Old and New Delhi will soon immerse you in the grand history as well as the sights and smells of India. This includes a visit to the largest mosque in India built in 1656 by 5,000 labourers over five years.

You will travel from Delhi to Agra in “first class” on the Gatimann Express train. Agra is home to one of the “Seven Wonders of the World” the famous Taj Mahal which was built by Sha Jahan for his queen in 1630 and took 17 years to build.

Of all the well-known icons in the world, this truly took my breath away. It is almost impossible to explain the magnificent marble design, architecture, its colours and beauty. Make sure you return at first light for another look at this magical place. One for the bucket list that’s for sure. The Agra Fort is also very impressive.

Another highlight is a visit to Ranthambore National Park. The Wildlife Jeep Safari is exhilarating. While travelling through the game park you will get the opportunity to see crocodiles, an abundant array of bird life and if you are lucky….the elusive tiger. I was fortunate to do this safari and have the photos and memories on my wall at home of the magnificent tiger in its natural habitat. That is something I will never forget.

You will enjoy three nights in Jaipur which is known as the Pink City and the colourful capital of Rajasthan. Founded in 1728 it is one of the most important heritage cities in India. The city is a treasure trove for shoppers with a wide range of handicrafts, textiles, precious and semi-precious stones including diamonds and the local “Kundan” style jewellery not found anywhere else in the world. A day trip to a rural village and the 475 year old Samode palace will be a huge contrast to the busy bustling cities.

You will then stay in Jodhpur and a full day city tour will include a visit to the Mehrangarh Fort. This was built back in 1455, is 5kms long and is situated on a 150 metre elevated hill. This is one of the most impressive and formidable structures in Rajasthan.

The quality of the accommodation continues… staying at Udaipur and visiting the spectacular Ranakpur Jain Temple on the way. Udaipur is the historic capital of the kingdom of Mewer which is known for having the longest ruling dynasty in the world. The City Palace is one of the architectural marvels of Rajasthan and is situated on the banks of Lake Pichola. It boasts a wonderful blend of Medieval, European and Chinese Architecture

Heading back to Delhi, you can enjoy some last minute shopping and sightseeing or you can just relax. The final farewell dinner is at the Kingdom of Dreams where you will also experience a Bollywood show. The following morning it’s a direct flight back to Melbourne.
