The journey begins at The Oberoi, Gurgaon in Delhi, perfectly located for sightseeing in the capital city. No trip to India would be complete without the Taj Mahal, and at the next stop every room at The Oberoi Amarvillas, Agra, comes with that view. Then games drives in nearby Ranthambore National Park are a magical experience, with or without a sighting of its sometimes elusive tigers.

Your next stop is Jaipur - The Oberoi Rajvilas, Jaipur is the ideal retreat. The fabled Pink City is home to sights almost as recognisable as the Taj Mahal, and exploring the Amber Fort and Palace of the Winds with your expert guide is a memorable history lesson.

You head next to Udaipur which is often said to be the loveliest of Rajasthan’s many riches, and taking in the views from The Oberoi Udaivilas, it’s not hard to see why.
