Highlights of Northern India

Northern India conjures up memorable and colourful images of turbans, saris, flavoursome curries and rickshaws. We visit the 'Pink City' of Jaipur, home to the wonderful former Maharaja's Palace and the splendid hilltop Amber Fort. Agra and the serene Taj Mahal are not to be missed and fully live up to expectations. An early morning boat ride through the mist along the ghats of Varanasi is probably the most sensory intoxicating excursion in India with the sight of so much Hindu culture both fascinating and deeply moving, an experience only equalled by spotting a tiger in Ranthambore National Park

All breakfasts and 1 lunch are included in this trip. You should allow at least £13 - £15 (approx. US$18 - US$20) per day for lunch and dinner. You can eat out very cheaply in India, but if you go to the more expensive restaurants most of the time, you will spend more than the suggested amount. In most of the towns there is a good choice of restaurants and a choice between Indian and Western food. If you are a vegetarian, India is a great destination. Tea and soft drinks are very cheap. A (large!) bottle of beer is approximately £3 (approx. US$4). Mineral water is widely available. Please note that service in restaurants can be quite slow. India is famous for its food and there is ample chance to try various curries such as the familiar tandoori, biriyani and rogan josh. There are wonderful desserts and excellent beers, soft drinks and Indian specialities such as lassi, a refreshing yoghurt drink.
