Then visit the magnificent Taj Mahal, built in the middle of the 17th century by the Moghul emperor for his wife. Tonight, be treated to dinner at the hotel’s rooftop Mughal dining room.

 
Agra to Ranthambore (B,L,D) (approx 280 kms)

This morning drive to Ranthambore National Park, stopping to wander the deserted plazas and streets of Fatephur Sikri, built in the 15th century and abandoned within 20 years due to a lack of the water. The ornate buildings and palaces are remarkably well preserved, offering a somewhat eerie insight into the grandeur of the Mughal Empire at its peak.  Continue to Ranthambore, a reserve famous for its tiger populuation where we will stay for 2 nights.

 
Ranthambore (B,L,D)

Eary morning rise to start our jeep safari with the possibility of spotting tigers. Keep your eyes peeled for these majestic creatures strolling in the jungle or near any of the local lakes on our morning and afternoon safaris.

This evening there is free time to visit the local bazaars for souvenirs in the vibrant lanes of the pink city.  Stay in Jaipur for 2 nights.

 
Jaipur (B,L)

After breakfast this morning, visit the majestic Amber Fort, rising steeply along the hillside. Built in the 16th century by Rajput Kings from pale yellow and pink sandstone and white marble.  The fort is still well preserved to explore the large ramparts, series of gates, cobbled paths and glittering mirrors.  After a special local lunch, the rest of the day is free to explore the colourful town at your own pace.
