When it comes to heritage, the Indian mainland on the whole has no match to land of the kings. Rajasthan Heritage Tour is yet another trail towards the wonderland of the state through its monuments, architectural legacy, intricate culture and luxurious indulgence. Starting from Delhi’s sightseeing, the tour ascends towards Agra, the city of love famous for the Taj Mahal. On the way to Pink City- Jaipur, the journey explores the fascinating city of Fatehpur Sikri. While entering Rajasthan, one encounters the undulated heritage of the state through imposing forts, rustic culture and impeccable luxuries of exploring the region on elephant’s back. Mandawa is a magical fairytale woven through havelis and forts in the desert backdrop.
