Rajasthan, India’s imperial epicenter, literally translates as “Land of the Kings.” Immerse yourself in majestic, yet complex, history and colorful culture on The Evolved Traveler’s 15-day, “Royal Rajasthan,” a once-in-a-lifetime luxury journey that lets you truly experience being one of the royals of this incredible region!
Your journey begins in New Delhi with a unique and moving Evolved Experience. The Salaam Baalak Trust Walk is an organization that rescues young adults from the streets, and your guide on this special tour will be one of those rescued who now has a better life and knows the area intimately. Continue through local markets taking in the sights, sounds, and scents of daily life. The Red Fort will be your final visit before heading to Jodhpur, where your local historian guide offers a truly exceptional perspective. Join the Mehrangarh Museum curator as he takes you on a tour of the wondrous collection, sharing his expertise and insights. Listen to tales of sacrifice, extraordinary events, and adventure while discussing a painting or the fort’s architecture. En route to Udaipur, visit Ranakpur, a stirring setting of pilgrimage and living temples, the most exquisite of which is the Jain Temple of the 15th-century. Udaipur, a splash of color in Rajasthan, is even brighter when tinged with the tones of local lore and legends, and certainly the sparkle of the Crystal Gallery. Completing this sensory fusion will be the flavors of a private cooking lesson with the royals’ personal family of chefs, the Bedla family. Jaipur beckons with the sparkle of the Amber Palace, a classic, romantic Rajasthani fort palace. The rugged, time-ravaged walls of the fort may not look beautiful from the outside, but the interior is a virtual paradise. Your royal experience reaches one of its pinnacles when you are taken by vintage car to the main residential palace of the Maharaja, where the members of the Royal family will receive you. Now, travel from royalty to the roars of wild tigers at Rajasthan’s Ranthambore National Park for a three-night stay and safari. Lastly, journey from Ranthambore to India’s most renowned and beloved royal jewel of them all, the Taj Mahal. A two-night stay in Agra will let you enjoy this magnificent site in every way before heading back to Delhi for your return home.
