Come to India and explore Rajasthan, the land of kings and palaces! Dive into the world of 1001 nights, feel like a Mughal king or queen while walking through their ancient palaces and visiting their former kingdoms. Visit world heritage sites and century-old forts, indulge in Rajasthan's delicious cuisine and spend a night out in the Thar desert.
We will pick you up in Delhi, either at the airport or at a hotel, and take you to the Ashram where you can first of all relax from the journey and then get to know the Ashram family. Experience an evening of Ashram life and get to know your guide who will be a member of the Ashram family. You can decide to take an Ayurvedic massage, play with the children at the Ashram or simply relax.
Once we reach Rajasthan's capital, you will see the great architecture of the famous pink city with its many archways and detailed adornments. We will visit the city palace in a part of which still today the royal family is living, we will walk through the Hawa Mahal where even in the hottest summer wind is blowing and cooling the building. You will surely enjoy another highlight: overlooking the city from the Amber Fort from the hills above Jaipur.
Jaisalmer will be our connection to the desert. From here we will go on a camel safari which will take you out into the dunes where we are going to spend the night in a tent camp. Enjoy a night in the desert on this extraordinary safari. Of course we won't miss visiting Jaisalmer's havelis or palaces, the lake and the local market, where you can indulge in shopping or just looking at the vibrant colours of Rajasthan.
With many of its houses painted in blue, Jodhpur is called 'the blue city' and has a lot of sights to offer. We will enjoy visiting Mehrangarh Fort, one of the largest forts in India and can even take a rope tour, sliding from one hill to the other, getting the best viewpoints from all sides and having lots of fun. A less exciting place where we will relax and take a stroll is Mandor garden, a beautifully designed garden with local art and handicraft.
Last but definitely not least we will reach Udaipur, the city of the lakes. Nobody can stay in Udaipur without taking a boat tour and maybe even at sunset time, when the sun bathes the town in gold light, letting the surrounding hills shine one last time before the night. We will visit Udaipur's palaces and enjoy the air of this picturesque town, which was the location for many Hollywood and Bollywood movies. Not far from Udaipur is Kumbhalgarh Fort with a spectacular view on the surrounding!

Everybody. This journey through Rajasthan has been designed upon request by a lot of people who did not want to travel through India on their own but were eager to see this popular desert state with its small and big palaces together with someone who could help them organize their means of transport, their accommodation and whatever else needs to be done. It is thus a Rajasthan trip for individuals, for couples, for friends and for groups, in short for everyone who does not want to struggle with travel arrangements, argue with taxi and rickshaw drivers or worry about committing a cultural faux-pas. You only need to come here and enjoy - we will take care of the rest!
