To travel through India is to encounter a country that is more complex and beguiling than perhaps any other—profoundly mysterious, gloriously exotic, seemingly infinite, and absolutely unforgettable.

Your adventure begins in Delhi, India’s stately capital and
third-largest city, a compelling blend of different historical
eras and religious influences.

Marvel at the exquisite Taj Mahal in Agra—justifiably considered one of the New Seven Wonders of the World—and hear the tragic love story that inspired its 17-year-long construction. Wander amongst the imposing fortresses and dusky-hued palaces of Rajasthan’s gateway city, the regal Pink City of Jaipur. Explore the atmospheric, centuries-old bazaars that make Jaipur such a magical place. With labyrinthine lanes lined with a plethora of tempting treasures, you’ll find them
a delightful and dizzying spectacle for all five senses.



Embark upon your eight-day cruise along the Ganges River, where many other stupendous sights and experiences still await—Mother Teresa’s home and tomb in Kolkata; an enormous Vedic temple built by Hare Krishnas; splendid garden-tombs and mosques; and grand Victorian buildings
and monuments, the lingering vestiges of India’s rich
colonial legacy.



As intriguing as it is enthralling, India will work its charm on you in myriad ways, making for a journey you will rave about the rest of your life.
