Experiencing the splendors of India has never been easier. With increasingly efficient domestic flights and numerous world-class hotels — some of the resorts rank among the finest in all of Asia — travelers can avoid much of the discomfort associated with visiting India in the past. Leading the pack is Mumbai's remarkable Taj Mahal Palace, which recently completed a $38 million renovation of its historic Palace wing.
The cities remain chaotic and crowded, but beyond the urban cacophony, "India possesses epic landscapes, extraordinary architecture and a subtle, varied and distinctive cuisine," notes Andrew Harper. An ideal first-time itinerary might include the Mughal and English colonial monuments of Delhi, the bazaars and fortresses of Jaipur, the lakeside palaces of Udaipur, the tiger reserves of central India, the temples and ghats of Varanasi and, of course, the fabled Taj Mahal in Agra.
Mr. Harper outlined his ideal India Palaces Tour in the May issue of the Hideaway Report.
With the help of our travel partners in India, we ensure that unique special features enrich your journey. In Jaipur, for example, we have arranged for Andrew Harper members to meet with one of the city's foremost astrologers, and in Udaipur, we can arrange for a special blessing ceremony with a Jain priest. One of the most romantic experiences we ever planned was a renewal of wedding vows near the Taj Mahal, celebrated by a special dinner and a traditional Kathak dance.
