*Every Yonder itinerary is uniquely created to suit our individual clients. Destinations, hotels, lengths of stay and even modes of transport are all decided by you, with the help of our local knowledge and expert guidance.
You’ll jet into Delhi, one of the most interesting cities on earth, and be met by your private Yonder driver. Your first stop will be the The Imperial, Delhi’s great colonial era hotel that is packed with fascinating history and art. Your Yonder guide will be on hand to take you out exploring. The fascinating lanes of Old Delhi will be navigated by rickshaw. You’ll then get in the car to see some of Delhi’s other major attractions including Humayun’s tomb, Gandhi’s eternal flame and India Gate.
The early morning express train from Delhi to Agra is, in our well-travelled opinion, the most exciting way of making the journey. An early morning start means being part of the daily life in Delhi as commuters go about their business. On arrival in Agra, check into the Oberoi Amarvilas with its direct view towards the Taj Mahal. A couple of days with whizz past as you experience the delights of the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Chandni Bazar.
Another breakfast you’ll set out in your private car for the drive through the spectacular Rajasthani countryside towards Ranthambore National Park. You’ll know you’ve arrived somewhere magical from the moment you arrive at Sher Bagh, your luxurious tented camp. A khaki clad butler will appear with a fragrant cold towel and a cut-crystal glass of bubbles. Over the next couple of days, you’ll venture out into the beautiful national park on four game drives. Hearts will be racing at the prospect of an encounter with ferocious felines as well as many other majestic creatures that call Ranthambore home.
The pink city lingers in the memory for all the right reasons. Its evocative sites, sounds and smells are something to behold. This royal capital is preciously perfect. You’ll be wowed by the beautiful buildings, palaces and the world famous observatory. Just a short drive from the city is the magnificent Ajmer Fort high, perched high on a hill, overlooking the surrounding countryside.
We just love Mumbai. It is the wheelhouse of India’s economy, home of Bollywood and the spiritual homeland of cricket. Your last nights in India will be spent at the iconic Taj Mahal (no, not the same as the one in Agra!) where just being a guest is an experience in itself. You’ll go out into the city with your private guide to discover hidden corners, whole districts dedicated to a single industry and fascinating history and architecture.
