Tag 1 Delhi
Namaste! Welcome to India. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm.

After the meeting, head out for your first optional dinner together with your group.

Visit Delhi’s oldest mosque of Jama Masjid, which is also India’s largest. Escape from the frenetic pace of the city streets by ducking into a Sikh temple, Sheeshganj Gurudwara, to observe the spiritual side of this bustling metropolis. The communal kitchen welcomes all, and there’s a chance to have a simple meal here together. The rest of the day is free for you to enjoy the sights of Delhi.

As the walls are completely covered in little mirrors, the hall illuminates with the light of a single match.

Tag 6 Jaipur
Today is a full free day that you can jam pack with experiences of your choice. This morning, you could take an optional hot air balloon ride. Floating across the skyline of Jaipur in a hot air balloon is a highlight of the trip for many travellers. Jump on a rickshaw to Hawa Mahal, also known as the ’Palace of the Winds’.
