two weeks in India

four of us have two weeks to spend in India starting point Delhi.

suggestions please as to where to visit and best way to get around. We do not want to fit too much in so we can enjoy what we see without being rushed. Thinking Agra and Jaipur but is Jodhpur and udaipur worth a visit and how do we get there. also should we book tours from UK or once we get there.

You can visit Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Varanasi, Khajuraho. Suggested itinerary :

Day 1 Arrl Delhi

Day 2 Delhi Sightseeing

Day 3 Delhi - Jaipur

Day 4 Jaipur

Day 5 Jaipur - Agra

Day 6 Agra Evening train to Varanasi

Day 7 Varanasi

Day 8 Varanasi

Day 9 Varanasi - Khajuraho flight

Day 10 Khajuraho

Day 11 Khajuraho - Jhansi - Delhi by Shatabdi Express train

Suggest you to book your tour with an Indian tour operator well in advance or you can book your hotels, train, flight online, and hire a car. It would be cheaper.

dear traveller, for two weeks in india would be good for rajasthan and agra.

delhi agra,jaipur,pushker,udaipur,rankpur,jodhpur,jaislmer,bikaner mandwa,delhi,all these city is historical and many more other thing like people culture colors desert and many more.

its beter to book your tour from your country as in delhi you will be disappointed by the tuk tuk driver hotel people and other hockwer.

the best way to look some company in trip advisor or some self employed driver in the fourm.

warm regards,

atma thakur

As you already mentioned about the cities that you wants to visit, you should add ''Pushkar & Varanasi'' in your itinerary.

If you are flying out from Delhi then the suggested Itinerary should be as follows:-


Above mentioned cities are well connected with the trains but cheapest & best option would be to hire a car & driver since you are 4 persons traveling together. You can chose hotels online based on positive reviews before making the bookings or else get the cost for the whole package from 2-3 reputed/reliable Indian based travel agents whom has recommendations in travel forum.

Visiting southern part of India in summer doesn't sounds a good idea If you are not used to the heat & humidity.

That's exactly what we did in Dec Agra, Jodphur, Jaipur, Ranakpur, Udaipur. Similar time frame as well. It was just right and not too rushed. Adding extra stops would have been fabulous, but so much time would have been spent travelling from A to B it would have been exhausting.

Rankakpur , en route to Udaipur is worth a visit. The Jain temple is phenomenal. We used Oasis - they were great

Can I suggest something more in line with your "see less, enjoy more" request? Delhi has a lot to see, but is very busy. Agra has the Taj plus other worthwhile sites and between those two and Jaipur you can fill 7 days, with time to travel in comfort (ie not o/night driving or buses etc). Then add something that REALLY appeals to your interests. Jodhpur has the fort, the blue city, and the chance to get out into the desert, Udaipur has the lakes and palaces, Ranakhpur was my favourite of the lot - partly because I felt 100% relaxed in the grounds of our hotel, listening to the wildlife - and has the temples, Bundi is small and not over-developed but interesting, Ranthambore has tigers (allegedly) plus lots of wildlife ... and so on.

Don't spoil your holiday with tick-off tours as suggested above - relax, enjoy your time, and store memories to take home!

We toured by private car and picked up guides in some places - you csn do that, or trains, buses, internal flights ... your choice, your taste, your budget
