Rise early for a private sunrise cruise on the Ganges River to observe activity along the ghats (stone steps leading down to the river), where locals and pilgrims cleanse themselves, literally and spiritually.
Return to your hotel for breakfast and later this morning you check-out and transfer to the airport for your next leg of the tour.
Your destination today is the royal city of Jaipur, with a short stopover en route in Agra, the home of the Taj Mahal.
This stunning mausoleum is decorated with a mosaic of semi-precious stones and Persian calligraphy recreating verses from the Koran.
After your visit to the Taj you have lunch before returning to the airport and continuing your journey. Your destination, Jaipur.
Founded by Sawai Jai Singh II in 1727, Jaipur, Rajasthan’s vibrant, colourful capital, is the gateway to the rich history of the state. Behind its pink walls, lies the original Old City – dating back to the 18th century – with its enticing bazaars, iconic palaces, lavish havelis (old mansions), and beautifully planned layout. Outside is the new Jaipur, with buzzing traffic, splendid hotels, and glistening malls.
On arrival, you are met and you transfer directly to your magnificent hotel.

The menu focuses on original Indian cuisines from the royal houses of Jaipur, Mewar, Awadh, Hyderabad, Vijayanagar, Kashmir and Patiala among others that originate from four different provinces.
