Star Cities

Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Varanasi


Sunrise at the Taj Mahal and sunset by the Ganges in Varanasi – it doesn’t get more magical than this. This classic route covers North India’s most iconic experiences – the colonial heart of Delhi, the Mughal edifices of Agra, the magnificent forts and palaces of Jaipur. But it isn’t only about the must-see-must-do with us. We’ll introduce you to hidden treasures along the way – a sloth bear rescue centre, jewelry craftsmen in narrow alleyways, incredible street food in local bazaars. You can count on us for a truly special take on a popular holiday. 


  • Go on a Mughal Heritage Walk led by a local youth in Agra’s Kachhpura village
  • See the stunning Taj Mahal in the light of the rising sun
  • Meet rescued sloth bears in Agra’s Sloth Bear Rescue Facility by Wildlife SOS
  • Visit the spectacular 1000-year-old Chand Baori stepwell
  • Live like royalty at a restored 1800s palace hotel in Varanasi
  • Watch the vibrant Ganga Aarti from a boat at sunset

DAY 1-4

Delhi has passed through the hands of many empires, all of which have left a lasting imprint on the city’s skyline. Tour the city’s most spectacular tombs and holy shrines, and when the sun lowers, experience the buzz of city life at trendy bars and restaurants. Head to Agra to see India’s most recognized icon, the Taj Mahal, and uncover its wealth of Mughal history. 

DAY 5-9

Jaipur dazzles visitors with its incredible architecture. Discover how royalty lived in the Pink City’s glorious forts and palaces. Mark Twain wrote that Varanasi is “older than history and older than tradition.” In this eternal city by the holy Ganges, life takes on an ethereal quality. The air is charged with spirituality at the evening Ganga Aarti, filled with lamps and flowers and chanting. In both cities, you’ll explore vibrant markets, where the maze of alleys are filled with exquisite textiles, crafts, and delicious street food.
