A journey into the land of kings – Rajasthan
RAJASTHAN, also known as ‘The Land of the Kings’ and ‘Rajputana’ is made up of a collection of former princely states of India and has attracted travellers, traders and explorers for centuries. Today it is one of India’s most popular tourist destinations, and rightly so. See exceptional examples of the smaller forts and palaces scattered around the country-side along with visits to Rajasthan’s major cities – Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur. Many of the forts’ owners have converted their ancestral homes into small, intimate hotels and these will be your ‘home’ in India during the course of this tour.
