Beyond India’s most sparkling jewel lies a priceless gem mine of experiences you’ll treasure for a lifetime. Hop in a rickshaw for a ride through Delhi’s centuries-old Chandni Chowk bazaar, sit down for traditional Indian cuisine in the home of a noble family in Jaipur, and embark on three thrilling open-air safari game drives through Ranthambore National Park in search of marsh crocodiles, striped hyenas, and the elusive Bengal tiger. A mosaic of memories awaits on this radiant tour of India. Immerse yourself in the holiest of Hindu pilgrim cities when you add a Globus vacation to Varanasi to your tour of India. A sunrise boat ride on the sacred Ganges River to watch the striking ritual of devotional bathing along the river’s edge is one of many unforgettable experiences found in this city.
