Perfect for solo travellers who want to join a group of like-minded people. Fly overnight from Ireland to India to begin a ten day tour of this incredible country.

Fly overnight to India’s capital, Delhi. On arrival at the airport you will be met by a member of the Wendy Wu Tours team and transferred to the hotel. Meet the group tonight for dinner and start getting to know your fellow travellers.

The next morning we explore this vivacious city! Starting in Old Delhi, together we will embark on a rickshaw ride through the atmospheric streets, stopping at Jama Masjid, a Mughal masterpiece of a mosque. We’ll then wander through a local market and learn about native herbs and spices as we go. Crossing into New Delhi we’ll admire the colonial grandeur of the Rajpath, including the Rashtrapati Bhavan and India Gate. Tonight, there will be a welcome meal.

Journey to Agra by road, where we’ll start our explorations with a tour of the magnificent Agra Fort. This mass of red sandstone sits on the bank of the Yamuna River, and from its ramparts we may catch a first glimpse of the magical Taj Mahal, just 2kms downstream. Next, we’ll take a rickshaw tour of the city and visit a fascinating spice and ayurvedic herb market. 

On day 5 we rise early to share an unforgettable experience; sunrise at the Taj Mahal. At dawn, when the crowds are at their thinnest, swathed in mist and tinged pink by the rising sun, the building looks magical. We’ll then visit a marble inlay workshop to get an insight into the skills that made the Taj Mahal the beautiful building it is; before hitting the road to Ranthambore National Park, home of majestic Bengal tigers! 

Together we will explore Ranthambore National Park in search of tigers, taking early morning and afternoon canter safaris. There are around 50 tigers living amongst the park’s undulating landscapes, as well as leopards, nilgai, sloth bears, wild boar, hyena and over 300 species of bird.

Departing Ranthambore the next morning, travel by road to Jaipur, the ‘Pink City’. En route we’ll stop to admire the exquisitely carved and unique Chand Baori stepwell. On arrival, the rest of the day is free to spend as you wish. 

The following day begins with a photo stop at the Hawa Mahal, the ‘Palace of the Winds’. Next, we’ll travel out of the city to admire the majestic Amber Fort, the colossal 16th century yellow and pink sandstone fort just 11 kilometres out of Jaipur.

Back in the city, we’ll try our hands at traditional artistries at a craft centre, including block printing and carpet weaving, before a stroll through the local bazaar at Choti Choper. Waving farewell to the Pink City, we return by road to Delhi. On arrival, the rest of the day is free to spend as you wish.

On the last evening, the group will sit down together for the last time at a farewell dinner and cooking demo at an Indian family home - the perfect time to reflect on our adventures. On day 10, fly to Ireland, arriving home the same or following day.
