Discover the best of Northern India and Royal Rajasthan

India - Jaipur - Hawa Mahal.jpg

Start your Private Jet journey in Delhi, one of the many beating hearts of India. This is a bustling capital alive with the sights and smells evocative of the Indian Subcontinent, where a throng of bazaars give way to ancient tombs, temples and forts which in turn lead to modern houses of worship and structures.

Next is the city of Agra, best known as the home to the truly iconic Taj Mahal, built as a shrine of love in gleaming white marble. Journey on to Udaipur, arguably the most romantic city in all of India, famed for its lakes that line the city and its boundaries, which gained it the moniker of "City of Lakes". Your next stop is the wilderness of Jawai, possibly the best location in all of India to sight the elusive leopard.

Besides its rugged landscape and abundant wildlife, Jawai is an ideal place to experience Rajasthan’s beautiful and completely off-the-beaten-track rural side. You last stop is Jaipur, also known as the "Pink City", where you will discover some of the finest regal architecture in India along with fine folk art and crafts. This journey will undoubtedly allow you to experience India of your dreams with all its grandeur and glamour.
