International flights NOT included - see below


Rajasthan is one of India's brightest jewels, a vast desert province where Rajput princes ruled for centuries in extravagant pomp and splendour.  The great forts and palaces of the Maharajahs bear witness to this proud and glorious past, but Rajasthan has more than just this rich historical legacy - it is also a land of traditional crafts, musicians and folk dances, women wearing bright saris and bedecked with bangles and silver nose rings, festive village life and the contrasting forms and colours of the desert.  Rajasthan is, simply, India at its best.




 Recommended flight from London: Virgin Atlantic from London Heathrow (see below).  If you are travelling from a country other than the UK we would be happy to give you guidance on your flight options.

You can book the flights yourself on the easy-to-use Virgin Atlantic or British Airways websites.  There are other direct flights and also many other routes involving connections en route.  We recommend the Skyscanner website for searching for the best options.  Alternatively World Discovery can book the flights for you (we levy a service charge of £25 per person for this service).


The sample tour shown above is our most popular Rajasthan holiday but it is exactly that - a sample tour.  We can change it to suit your precise requirements in may ways - by amending or upgrading the accommodation, by taking out or putting in additional sightseeing, by changing the number of nights in each place, by booking special meals, activities or cultural visits.  We are happy to advise and help you create your ideal holiday.
