Hi,

The National Park in Ranthambor will be closed in July, so you can skip it. You can choose the above mentioned itinerary with a few changes or can follow the reversed itinerary which is -

Delhi - Mandawa - Bikaner - Jaisalmer - Jodhpur - Udaipur via Ranakpur and Kumbalgarh - Bundi - Jaipur - Agra via Fatehpur Sikri and maybe Abhaneri - Delhi.

Hiring a car for this trip would be the best way to do it. There are several recommendations for drivers on this forum.

Thanks
