DAY 1 - Arrive Delhi
Delhi
What’s up Indian explorers! Who’s ready for an intoxicating dose of spice, flavour, yoga, beauty, colour, culture, and everything else wonderful that India can provide? The next 12 days are likely to be some of the best of your life so get ready for some serious memory making, starting off with meeting your new travel fam this evening.
Stay
The Ashtan Sarovar Portico Hotel (or similar)
DAY 2 - Dehli
Delhi
Delhi, prepare to be officially conquered. Today is all about exploring one of the world’s most hustling, bustling, and all out crazy cities, home to a staggering 25 million people (for real). Together with our Local Guide we’ll be taking in the sights and learning the stories of Old Delhi, hopping in rickshaws during our explorations to weave a path through the back streets. Stopping for lunch to appease rumbling tummies with tangy street food delights like kachori, pakora and jelebi we’ll then make our way to the Gurdwara Sikh Temple. Riding high on the culture wave the afternoon is then yours to explore Delhi your way with free time to go a-wandering. Maybe swap mayhem for tranquillity at the Lodi Gardens, or visit the legendary Humayun’s Tomb. Dinner tonight is a DIY vibe, tasting the very best of Delhi with your new crew.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Locally guided sightseeing tour of Delhi
Stay
The Ashtan Sarovar Portico Hotel (or similar)
DAY 3 - Delhi to Agra
Delhi
Today’s the day peeps (you know what we’re talking about). After stocking up at breakfast we’ll jump on the bus with Agra in our sights.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit Agra Fort
Visit the Taj Mahal
Agra
Who’s ready for some serious bucketlist ticking? Linking up with our Local Guide we’ll mosey our way over to two of India’s finest, visiting first the UNESCO World Heritage Agra Fort, and then the main event – the Taj Mahal. We’ll hook you up with an entry ticket so you can explore at your own pace, learning about the incredible love story that resulted in the creation of one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Take your time exploring – after all, you’ve probably been waiting a lifetime for this moment – then tonight head out with the gang for a DIY dinner, Agra style.
Stay
The Retreat Hotel (or similar)
DAY 4 - Agra to Ranthambhore
Agra
Still living off the Taj dream we’ll wave goodbye to Agra early this morning with eyes firmly on the wild horizon.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Special stay at Ranthambhore National Park
Visit to Dhonk Centre
Ranthambhore
Feel the calm of nature sweep over you as we arrive at Ranthambhore National Park, one of the largest and most renowned National Parks in Northern India and our home for the night. After a lunch pit-stop we’ll make our way to the Dhonk Craft Centre, a cooperative that was set up to serve a dual purpose – to employ those who would otherwise only find income from tiger poaching, and also to preserve traditional artistry. Handicrafts lovers will be in craft utopia at the beautiful creations on offer from the local ladies, and spending is guilt free knowing that your money is going towards sustaining a local community. Feel good vibes on high we’ll end the day with a tasty group dinner set against a back drop none of us will be forgetting any time soon.
Stay
Ranthambhore Regency Hotel (or similar)
DAY 5 - Ranthambhore to Jaipur
Ranthambhore
Who’s up for more legendary #NOREGRETS moments? Damn right you are, as this morning is all about one thing – tigers. Oh yes have we got one incredible Free Time Add On lined up for you – a sunrise safari adventure to try and spot these magnificent predators as they should be seen – in the wild. Safari trucks will pick you up from your accommodation, then we’ll head out into the lush forest for some serious wildlife watching. Wild animals AND an epic sunrise all before breakfast, and Jaipur next on the agenda? You could call that one way to start the day.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Locally guided sightseeing tour of Jaipur
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
National Park Safari (must be pre-booked via Reservations team)
INR2150
Jaipur
Old and new, colour and chaos, camels and rickshaws – Jaipur is a hustling hot mess of wonderful. We’ll jump straight in to city life with a locally guided tour of the best bits, checking out the architecturally complex City Palace in the Old City, as well as the vibrant Bazaars selling everything from traditional Rajasthan jewellery to textiles, brassware and furniture (and of course street food, as by this stage we’re totally hooked). Tonight run wild in the city, tasting and exploring with your wolf pack.
Stay
Park Inn Hotel (or similar)
DAY 6 - Jaipur
Jaipur
Ready for more of exotic, chaotic Jaipur? We thought so. Today is all about seeing the city your way, heading out to explore armed with maps, insider tips from your Trip Manager, and a healthy dose of curiosity. For those keen on grabbing a real slice of India, Amber Fort should be high up on the agenda. Built from red sandstone and marble and comprising of multiple palaces, pavilions, temples and more, the Fort has both Hindu and Muslim architectural influence and is a true Indian must-see.
FREE TIME ADD-ONS

INR2600
Cooking demonstration and local family dinner

Stay
Park Inn Hotel (or similar)
DAY 7 - Jaipur to Udaipur
Jaipur
Jaipur you’ve been glorious, but the lush green hills and lavish marble palaces of Udaipur are calling us today as we jump on the coach for a full day of cross country travelling. Watch from the window as the landscape changes from flat dry lands to gorgeous green, and prepare yourself for an entirely different Indian experience.
Udaipur
Stay
The Lavitra Hotel (or similar)
DAY 8 - Udaipur
Udaipur
Completely unique, Udaipur’s colonial architecture and shimmering lakes give the city a distinctly Venetian, romantic feel unmatched arguably in the whole of India. Our locally guided city tour will see us exploring the majestic City Palace and the Jagdish Temple, then after lunch the day is yours to continue your city wanderings. With fantastical palaces, tranquil boat rides on the lake, bustling bazaars, crooked colourful streets and endless eating joints to choose from, you’ll be absolutely spoilt for choice.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Locally guided sightseeing tour of Udaipur
Stay
The Lavitra Hotel (or similar)

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Included flight to Mumbai
Locally guided sightseeing tour of Mumbai
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Bollywood Dance Class
INR3550
Mumbai
Fast, furious and fantastic, Mumbai is a completely unparalleled sensory overload. Slums and millionaire mansions live side by side, tropical forests rub up against towering skyscrapers and colonial masterpieces, whilst gangsters, artists, celebrities, servants and fisherfolk all walk the same walk. The best way to understand this complex city is to get out and amongst it, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do. Our Local Guide will take us to the Dhobi Ghat, a massive human-powered laundromat with 1026 open-air troughs, and to the serene Hanging Gardens. Tonight, we’re hitting the D-floor Bollywood style, with a Dance Class (Free Time Add-On) to learn some of the sweet moves that Bollywood is famous for.
Stay
The West End Hotel (or similar)
DAY 10 - Mumbai to Goa
Mumbai
Want to see a different side of Mumbai? Rise with the locals for our optional Mumbai at dawn tour to watch the city as it starts its day. Back for breakfast, we’ll then make tracks for the airport. Feeling those butterflies at the prospect of golden Goa?
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Included flight to Goa
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Mumbai at dawn
INR2840
Goa
Sunshine, spirituality, tropical palms, golden stretches of beach and a hippy, happy, laid-back charm – this is Goa. Slide seamlessly into beach time with a cold beer in hand, revelling at the prospect of having nothing to do but enjoy your stunning surrounds.
Stay
Acacia Hotel (or similar)
DAY 11 - Goa
Goa
Wake up with a smile this morning as you remember exactly where you are, knowing today is entirely yours to do as much, or as little, as you want. Spirituality is a big part of the Goa experience, so start your day with some optional yoga on the beach, clearing your mind and stretching your travel tired limbs. Tonight is our final one together (sob), so make sure you do it right. Sunset and beers on the beach ticking the boxes?
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Yoga on the beach
INR2390
Stay
Acacia Hotel (or similar)
DAY 12 - Depart Goa
Goa
Even the biggest and best adventures have to end at some point, and this morning sees the finale of ours. After a final breakfast together it’s time for the long (and possibly teary) goodbye. Sure you’ll be sad, but remembering all of the massive moments and seemly insignificant giggles in-between will see you smiling your whole journey home.
