Imagine entering a palace, astride an elephant, being received by Indian royalty and then dining in their home with live entertainment. You can do all this and more at The Royal India Tour for a princely sum of INR 52 lakhs.
What Is It?
Online luxury boutiques VeryFirstTo and Epic India Travel have created a travel itinerary fit for a king. We have to warn you though. This isn’t a trip that promotes modesty and is definitely not meant for someone who doesn’t like the spotlight.
“The Royal India Tour” is a 17 day trip that lets you live life king size. As part of the trip, you get to eat dinner at the desert, make an entry with a royal procession astride elephants and of course stay at the most opulent palaces across India.
Did we mention that you’ll be received by the members of the royal family as well? And they don’t do stuff like us ordinary folk. Think drums and trumpets and rather royal receptions. Those on the tour will be escorted in with horse-drawn carriages, trumpets, horses, dancers and musicians trailing behind. Phew! Talk about living life king-size.
Evenings will revolve around home-cooked meals (by royalty), live entertainment (by royalty) and dance performances (organized by royalty).
The 17 day trip will take you for a sail across the River Ganges. For those seeking solace, there’s also a visit organized to Sarnath, one of Buddhism’s four holiest sites. There are guided tours through narrow bazaar roads selling Indian spices and condiments.
No iconic trip would be complete without a visit to the beautiful Taj Mahal. Guests on the tour will be served High Tea.
As part of the 17 day trip, you will also experience the desert dunes near Jodhpur, the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, and a historic 150-year-old boat that was once used by maharajas, the Rambagh Palace in Jaipur and Taj Lake Palace in Udaipur.
