Ker & Downey’s reflective tour of northern India begins in Delhi. The Oberoi New Delhi embodies the city’s spirit in a harmonious blend of tradition and contemporary sophistication. Exquisite interiors, impeccable service and fine cuisine combine to make this the capital’s most graceful and elegant hotel. Set out to explore Dehli’s amazing architecture, from the largest mosque in Asia, the Jama Masjid, to the distinct blend of 20th century styles in Lutyen’s Delhi.

Next, travel to Agra for an afternoon tour of the Taj Mahal, the largest tribute to love ever expressed in architecture. Every room in the Oberoi Hotel Amarvilas has an incredible view of the shrine. Built in a style inspired by Moorish and Mughal architecture, the resort is a splendid display of terraced lawns, fountains, reflection pools and pavilions with rich interiors that take you back to an era of Emperors and Princes.

Jaipur, popularly known as the Pink City, is your next destination. Spend the next two evenings at the Oberoi Hotel Rajvilas. A luxury resort with its own distinctive character, it revives the gracious lifestyles of India’s legendary Rajput princes. The Rajvilas is set in 32 acres of landscaped gardens with pavilions and reflection pools that create the romance and grandeur of Rajasthan. From here, discover the majesty of the Amber Fort and the Jantar Mantar, the largest stone-and-marble-crafted observatory in the world containing 17 large instruments, many of them still in working condition.

Transfer now to the “Venice of the East” – the incredibly romantic city of Udaipur. The Oberoi Hotel Udaivilas captures all the romance and splendor of a royal era. Richly-appointed Premier Rooms include private walled courtyards, complete with silken parasols and furnishings. Explore the massive City Palace built around Lake Pichola, each ornate palace accented by glittering Belgian mirrors and stunning stonework. Take a romantic evening cruise around the lake for an unforgettable view of the lit palaces at night.

After a day of leisure in suburban Delhi and the luxurious Trident Gurgaon, fly north to the cool Himalayas and Shimla, the former summer capital of British India. At 8,350 feet in the magnificent mountains, Wildflower Hall is a fairytale luxury resort set in 23 acres of virgin pine and cedar woods. Indulge your desires in the resort’s impressive spa or venture into the mountains for hiking, horseback riding and exploration of the quaint “Queen of the Hills.”

Before your flight home, revisit vibrant Delhi and relax once more at the Oberoi Hotel New Delhi. The city is yours to treasure for a final day – stroll through the city shops, sample local cuisine and spices and soak up all the sights of the bustling hub.

  • Reviewer: located in Osoyoos, BC Canada
    We recently returned from  taking the "South America Journey" trip arranged by Ker & Downey.  This  was our second trip with Ker & Downey, last year we enjoyed the thrilling "Classic Botswana Safari". South America has been on our list of "things to do", therefore with the excellent service provided by Ker & Downey last year, we decided to book the "South America Journey" which we  saw on  the Ker & Downey website.  Ker & Downey were again able to design a custom trip  which took us to Peru, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.  From the moment we were met at the Jorge Chavez airport in Lima, Peru until we departed from the airport in Quito, Ecuador this journey was   nothing short of clockwork precision.  All our accommodation and tours were first class, excellent food and ALL our personal guides/drivers in Peru and Ecuador should be commended for their knowledge and professionalism and foremost their friendliness.  Both Peru and Ecuador are beautiful, beautiful countries as are their people.  The "Coral 1" and crew were no exception, they were terrific, as was the complete tour in the Galapagos Islands.We again would like to say a "BIG THANK YOU" to Ker & Downey, for putting together  this enjoyable and exciting " South America Journey " one we will remember for a life time. The itinerary and trip could not have been any better! Thanks again and hopefully we  will be able to book another exciting journey with Ker & Downey in the near future.
