Tips to customize

( Please note, Some  suggested activities might already be included in the published price. Speak to our travel consultant for exact details )

It is always a challenge to customize a long trip, as any addition in days could possibly add to an already stretched itinerary. The best thing to do in a long trip is to add a few days  of just relaxation in between your scheduled itinerary. So perhaps break down your things to do in a city in two days instead of one at some places. This will allow you to relax  on such a long trip. You could possibly use this rest time at places where the travel time is more or where the city allows you the luxury of living in a unique  setting.

On Activity Level:

  • Add a visit to “ Chokhi Dhani” ( 45 kms outside Jaipur) for an ethnic village experience with buffet dinner and entertainment.
  • Take a 3-4 hr cooking class
  • Have dinner with a local family
  • Opt to stay at one of the Heritage Hotels ( living quarters of royalty or nobles from the bygone era, converted in  hotels with similar charm but with contemporary facilities)
  • Elephant ride in Jaipur
  • Camel Safari in Jaislamer – possible  longer safari than usual with nomadic camping out in open
  • Boat ride in Udaipur Lake
  • Stay in a Heritage house in Kerala
