Day 1
New Delhi, India
The Oberoi, New Delhi Dinner

New Delhi is the capital of India and one of the oldest continually-inhabited cities in the world, making it a must-see and the first stop on your journey through the subcontinent. The metropolis that includes New Delhi is pulsing with a population of over 20 million people. Check out the inside scene of contemporary art on an exclusive tour through the Vadehra Art Gallery, Gallery Espace, Anant Art Gallery and Delhi Art Gallery.

Feel like royalty while staying tonight at the Imperial New Delhi or Oberoi Gurgaon.

Day 2
New Delhi, India
The Oberoi, New Delhi Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Continue your extensive tour of the city as you visit a few of the many houses of worship New Delhi has to offer. The city has a wide diversity of religion. You have the option to spend some time chatting with a professor of Eastern Religions to learn about the different beliefs of Hindus, Jains, Parsis, Sikhs, Muslims, Buddhists, and more. Explore the Chandni Chowk market, the perfect place to try fresh Indian curry cooked up hot from a stall. Visit the Red Fort and Jama Masjid, in the heart of Old Delhi. Other fascinating sites include the Qutub Minar, the Gurdwara Bangla Sahib, the Baha’i Lotus Temple and many more.

Day 3
Agra, India
The Oberoi Amarvilas Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Board your private jet for a flight to the state of Uttar Pradesh, and land in Agra, the former capital of India’s Mughal Dynasty. This is home to one of the most iconic architectural masterpieces in the world-- the stunning Taj Mahal. See the wonder with your own eyes as you tour the complex, which was constructed in the 17th century. Constructed of white marble in memory of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan’s favorite wife, the construction nearly bankrupted the empire and took 20,000 workers to erect. Next, the ghost city of Fatehpur Sikri is a fascinating site to see. The city was abandoned quickly after being built due to flooding. Other fantastic sites include the Jama Masjid tomb site and Agra Fort. Sleep in luxury tonight at the Oberoi Amarvilas. The white exterior hotel is built in a style reminiscent of the Taj Mahal.

Day 4
Ranthambhore National Park, India
Aman-i-Khas Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Board your private Pilatus PC12 turboprop or helicopter, and head into the epicenter of India’s natural beauty-- Ranthambhore National Wildlife Park. This is one of the last places in existence to see the Bengal Tiger in its natural environment. The park is composed of dry savannas, emerald lakes, small patches of forest, and the peaks of the picturesque Aravalli and Vindhya Hills. Sleep easy at either the Aman-i-Khas or Oberoi Vanyavilas.

Day 5
Ranthambhore National Park, India
Aman-i-Khas Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Spend the day exploring the park in search of the famous Bengal Tiger. The park is also famous for its wide variety of bird species. Grab a pair of binoculars and enjoy a birdwatching tour. A jeep excursion is an ideal way to explore the grounds of the national park. Your naturalist guide will help you increase your chances of spotting tigers and other wildlife, which could include leopards and hyenas. Return to the hotel to rest up after an active day.

Day 6
Alwar, India
Amanbagh Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Fly into Alwar, the former capital of the Alwar princely state during the British Raj. Enjoy Alwar’s natural beauty; the city sits in a lush valley and is surrounded by the Aravalli Hills. Mansarover Lake is a beautiful location for a Kashmiri-built boat cruise. If you happen to be traveling from October to February, the birdwatching is especially fantastic. Stay at the Amanbagh for the duration of your stay.

Day 7
Alwar, India
Amanbagh Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Visit the vibrant Sariska National Park, part of India’s Project Tiger conservation efforts. The park is over 300 square miles of landscape occupying the Aravalli Hills. The area is filled with grasslands, dry deciduous forests, steep cliffs, and rocky areas. Keep your eyes peeled to spot macaques, leopards, and the langur. Visit the ancient Ajabgarh Fort known as “the place of mysteries.” The fort was a favorite hunting spot of local nobility in the 10th century. Next, stop by the fascinating historical city of Bhangarh. Folklore claims the city is cursed after a magician tried to unsuccessfully capture the heart of its beautiful queen during the 17th century. Return to Amanbagh to relax for the evening.

Day 8
Jaipur, India
Rambagh Palace Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Board your private jet once again and make your way to Jaipur, famously coined as the “Pink City” for the color of its most elegant buildings. Home to a population of 3.6 million people, this ancient city is a highlight for many. The city’s customs and culture have withstood the test of time and life is lived much the same to how it has been for centuries. Learn about the city’s diverse and fascinating culture and history. Check into the Rambagh Palace to sleep like one of the city’s ancient Maharajas.

Day 9
Jaipur, India
Rambagh Palace Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Take a shopping tour of Jaipur’s unique boutiques and workshops. The city is known for having the finest of silks, fabrics, gems, and Alwari suits - a baggy unisex outfit. Visit the 18th-century observatory, the Jantar Mantar, and learn about the history of astrology within India. Peruse the City Palace and stop in the City Palace Museum to explore the ornate architecture and elaborate interior. Other great sights include the Hawa Mahal, also known as the Palace of the Winds, and  Chittorgarh Fort, the largest fort in India.

Day 10
Jaipur, India
None Breakfast

It’s time to say goodbye to the beautiful country you have been able to explore so extensively.
