Authentic Asia India

Mystery, enchantment, intrigue, beauty… it’s little wonder so many seasoned travellers hold India to be an incomparable adventure.

Starting in the bustle of Kolkata (Calcutta), the RV Ganges Voyager, spends 10 nights on a unique cruise all the way to Patna. It’s a magical journey through country side, towns and cities, deep into the culture and homeland of the Bengalis. Next, you will be taken on a holiday of indulgent luxury, starting in Varanasi, a most holy city for Hindus and Buddhists. You will also visit Agra, home to the Taj Mahal and explore Ranthambore National Park for the best chance of seeing tigers. Then, the great cities of Rajahstan await. The Pink City of Jaipur, the desert fortress of Jodphur and the mystical magic of Udaipur are all included in your adventure before it concludes in the excitement of Mumbai.

This itinerary has comprehensive inclusions but it also lets you choose some afternoons and meals so as to control the pace of your day.

There are only four departures per year of Authentic Asia India in 2015 and 2016, with space for just 100 bookings per year. We urge to get aboard now!
