Day Description Arrival Departure
Saturday, October 15, 2022 Delhi

Delhi is India’s capital but also its cultural and historical center. Reflecting its 900 years—ruled by Hindu, Muslim, and Mughal dynasties, the British, and now their parliamentary democratic republic—the city has become an intriguing mix of old and new... and all of it fascinating! Overnight at Oberoi New Delhi.

Sunday, October 16, 2022 Delhi

Today, explore British-influenced New Delhi and Old Delhi’s twisting maze of streets lined with markets of clothing, jewelry, and housewares and aromatic street food. Plus, help cook a meal in a Sikh temple, where a thousand visitors are fed daily, and visit Jama Masjid, India’s largest mosque, completed 1656.

Monday, October 17, 2022 Drive to Agra

We’ll drive to Agra today, where we’ll stay at the Oberoi Amarvilas with an unparalleled view of the Taj Mahal! The Taj Mahal is a glorious monument—not to battle or conquest but to love—built by 20,000 Persian, Turkish, French, and Italian laborers for Emperor Shah Jahan to memorialize his wife.

Tuesday, October 18, 2022 Agra

We rise early to see the majestic Taj Mahal’s white marble and reflecting pools tinged with the pink of dawn. After strolling the grounds and vast interior, we’ll visit Agra Fort on the River Yamuna, built by Emperor Akbar as his citadel in the 16th century. Your afternoon is at leisure with a choice of excursions.

Wednesday, October 19, 2022 Drive to Jaipur

After yoga overlooking the Taj Mahal, we drive to Jaipur, India’s majestic “Pink City.” In the afternoon, explore the renowned local bazaars and marketplaces. Next visit the Birla Temple for an aarti, or prayer ceremony. Finally, consider indulging in a special session at the hotel to choose an Indian ensemble.

Thursday, October 20, 2022 Jaipur

Today we’ll tour the City Palace complex, a showplace of Hindu and Mughal architecture, and its extravagant 18th-c. observatory. We’ll spend the afternoon in a private garden entertained by music, mehndi, and the skills of a bangle-maker, blacksmith, and palmist. Later we’ll visit ornate Amber Fort.

Friday, October 21, 2022 Fly to Udaipur

This morning, we venture to the quaint village of Samode. We’ll visit its lavish palace and spend time with villagers, too. We also visit the village school that Micato supports with the help of travelers. Afterward, we fly to Udaipur, the “Venice of the East,” known as the City of Sunrise and City of Lakes.

Saturday, October 22, 2022 Udaipur

Today we’ll visit City Palace, the state’s largest palace complex, featuring a mix of Mughal and Rajasthani architecture. We’ll stroll the town’s charming market and enjoy a sunset boat ride on Lake Pichola. If you like, enjoy the three-course dinner dressed in custom-tailored Indian finery, tailored at the hotel.

Sunday, October 23, 2022 Fly to Delhi and Departure

After a morning tour of the temples of Eklingji and Nagda, we lunch at the 18th-c. Devigarh Palace. We’ll then fly back to Delhi and then proceed to our rooms at the hotel. Later, return to the airport to fly home, or join Olivia for the “Spiritual Varanasi” Vacation Stretcher, October 26-28.
