The Indian Royal Tour is organised by Epic India Travel who have curated this ultimate trip to India with exclusive access and privileged private tours being an ongoing theme.
This exceptional tour allows you to experience the rich cultural tapestry of India and an unprecedented itinerary featuring meetings with Indian Royals in four separate locations, including The Khajoorgaon Palace City Palace of Jaipur where guests will arrive through the entrance exclusively used by the family. On Royal visits you can expect to enjoy authentic home-cooked food, complete with live cooking demonstrations of secret royal recipes, as well as participating in a Royal Procession where drums and trumpets will announce your arrival at the palace and you will board elephants or sit in a horse-drawn carriage followed by horses, camels, dancers and musicians.
The magnificent and exclusive trip begins at The Imperial with welcome drinks, and an expert talk ‘British in India’ delivered by a prominent historian.
You will be able to experience Old and New Delhi on a private guided tour. This includes the enormous Jama Masjid where you will walk through the bazaars and narrow streets - a great way to absorb the sights and sounds of Old Delhi, as well as a special spiritual walking tour and exclusive live musical performance of Qwalai (devotional sufi music) at Qutub Minar.
Highlights of the tour include sailing through the River Ganges and breathtaking views of the evening Arti at an old palace on the Ghat, welcome prayers to invoke good luck and health chanted by priests, a visit to the Samath Sarnath - one of four holy Buddhist sites sanctioned by the Buddha himself for pilgrimage where Gautama Buddha first taught the Dharma after his enlightenment - high tea at the Taj Mahal, spa treatments, a bush dinner on the desert dunes of Jodhpur, and a private dinner with Royals on a historic 150-year old boat used by the erstwhile Maharajas.
