India’s a crazy country, there’s no doubt about that, but it’s also an incredible place, rich in sensory experiences and fascinating culture. Every stop on this itinerary offers something unique and allows you to travel on your own terms. And don’t worry, we know you want to get “that picture” in front of the Taj Mahal. We did, too.

"I would go back in a heartbeat. India is everything and more. A marble mosaic, an enchanting trip back in time, an adventure waiting for you at every corner. Everywhere you go, you are spoilt with the most magical scenery, sites, sensations. India, we will meet again!"

Rebecca Kruger - Nemo Traveller

A few more tips...

 

Delhi

 

  • Head to Jama Masjid, a must for those interested in architecture.
  • Experience real India with local children on the Salam Balak trust walk. 
  • Learn about partition and the changing face of Delhi with a local historian.

 

Agra

 

  • Walk to the East Bank of the Yamuna River for quiet views of the Taj Mahal.
  • Two nights are enough in Agra, one if you are short on time.
  • The Taj Mahal is beautiful (and least crowded) in the early morning light.

 

Ranthambore National Park

 

  • Spend at least two nights for the best chance of seeing a variety of animals.
  • Be amazed by the big cats, but don’t miss the other fascinating wildlife.
  • Safari’s are a great social experience, so don’t assume you need a private guide.

 

Jaipur

 

  • Visit the ancient observatory of Jantar Mantar with your Nemo guide.  
  • Take a hike into the Aravali hills for panoramic views over the city.
  • Meet the elephants at Dera Amer. This is an ethical way to get close to these gentle giants.
