Complete Rajasthan Tour (16 days)

This tour will allow you to discover Rajasthan in 16 days at a relatively calm pace, and to get a real feel of the Rajasthani way of life.

It can be done in one direction or the other, as you prefer. Depending on your arrival day, I can advise you so you don't miss any important monuments. For example, the Taj Mahal is closed on Friday.

You'll have ample time to discover the places that are the hallmarks of Rajasthan: Jaipur the Pink City, Jodhpur the Blue City, Jaisalmer the "Golden City" with its timeless charm, serene Udaipur, not forgetting amazing Agra and the Taj Mahal, as well as many other magical places !

Rajasthan is a land of legend and of reality, where you will meet women draped in beautiful saris and turban-clad men sporting proud moustaches.
You will be captivated by the sumptuous palaces, incredible forts and castles, authentic villages, colourful markets and above all, above all, by the warm welcome of the colourful people.
This trip will always be unforgettable.

Like all my tours, it is possible to modify anything according to your preference. Do not hesitate to contact me, and I will be pleased to organise the tour you are dreaming of.
