Rajasthan and Varanasi tour (20 days)

Femme Rajasthan

This tour allows you to discover Rajasthan and get a glimpse of Uttar Pradesh in 20 days at a relatively calm pace, to absorb and experience aspects of the Indian way of life.

It can  start in either direction, as you prefer. I can advise you, depending on your arrival day, so you don't miss any important monuments. For example, the Taj Mahal is closed on Friday.

You will have time to discover the places that are the hallmarks of Rajasthan: Jaipur the Pink City, Jodhpur the Blue City, Jaisalmer the Golden City and its timeless charm, serene Udaipur, Khajuraho the temple town, Varanasi and its ghats on the Gange river, without forgetting amazing Agra and the Taj Mahal, as well as other magical places !

Rajasthan is a land of legend and reality. You will meet women draped in beautiful saris and turban-clad men with proud moustaches.
You'll be captivated by the sumptuous palaces, incredible forts, authentic villages, colourful markets and above all, above all, by the warm welcome of the colourful people.
This very complete trip will remain 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.
