Have you ever been enticed by India holidays but do not want to forgo on luxury and comfort? Do you dream of visiting palaces by day and, better yet, sleeping in them at night? Journeys by Chance makes the dream a reality for you. We love traveling in luxury almost as much as we love journeying through this magnificent country and we’ve just put the finishing touches on our best India experience yet. Imagine sleeping and dining in sheer, indulgent luxury in former grand palaces; exploring the charismatic cities of Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Udaipur and spotting wild tigers in the thick jungle. Our expert guides will ensure you are escorted smoothly from one highlight to the other.
We love the ancient extravagance of a Mughal Palace, restored to its full glory and converted into one of the world’s most luxurious hotels; and a glorious fort, a lavish bolt hole with fresh modern interiors finished with traditional gold, marble, silk and masses of original artwork. Trust us, every bed you sleep in will be fit for a king… or queen! Arrive in the bustling city of Delhi, rest your head in the height of luxury, at a New Delhi’s landmark hotel before you embark on a day to dive into the ‘real India’. Ride a traditional rickshaw through Old Delhi to experience its pulsing energy and intriguing sights, sounds and aromas. Jump aboard an express train and head to an iconic city of Agra where you will stay in a stunning hotel with view of the Taj Mahal. Reveal the secrets of a monumental fort and it goes with saying, no trip to India would be complete without a visit to the Taj Mahal. Here you can melt in the romanticism of this momentous testament of love as you watch the sun creep up behind it.
Escape the buzz of the city and journey across the rugged Aravalli Mountains in air-conditioned bliss to the lavish 17th century Lake Palace which comes into view like a mirage. Spent a few days in this marble paradise just like 007 in Octopussy! Continue your journey to the architectural delights of Jaipur, the ancient capital of Rajasthan. You will change your vehicle for a more archaic mode of transport: an elephant. Talk about making an entrance!
The next magical highlight on the menu is an unmatched Tiger safari. Situated in acres of jungle forest with ancient forts, this is India no.1 wildlife-spotting territory. Hunt – for the best photo shots!! – during adrenaline rushed morning and afternoon game drives, and in between slow down your pace in uber-luxurious jungle safari tents. You will be spoiled in luxury and pampered all the way by sumptuous cuisine, kindhearted locals and seamless service. You’ll head back home recharged, full of new experiences and with countless photos to share. Just don’t expect the royal treatment to continue back at the office…
