By combining a selection of Oberoi Hotels, you will receive incredible value for money, as Oberoi reward you the longer you stay in their hotels. The quality of accommodation throughout will give you a consistency that you can appreciate throughout your entire journey. This itinerary is ideal for those unsure of using heritage hotels, that can for some, not live up to the romance that they portray by not offering creature comforts who get with Oberoi Hotels.
This itinerary is only a framework based upon popular customized itineraries undertaken by Scott Dunn guests. We can of course add on the tiger reserve at Ranthambore, or the Himalayan retreat of Wildflower Hall. Furthermore, if you would like to blend ’Palace hotels’ with Oberoi hotels, then this can be tailored to your particular requirements.
This route begins in Delhi, a city that has more of an open and welcoming feel than most. Here you will stay at The Oberoi New Delhi, which is set to reopen after a extensive renovation. Included throughout your itinerary is a private guide who will help you explore Rajasthan's rich history and culture. In Delhi you will learn what this city is truly about; by taking you on a cycle rickshaw through the bustling and colorful markets and kitting you out with our sought after restaurant guide.
The next port of call is Agra, home to the Taj Mahal, the iconic image of this region. With a room overlooking the Taj Mahal, it makes for a sensational stay.
Your journey then turns towards Rajasthan and the city of Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan. Jaipur offers a great deal to any guest; superb shopping (we can arrange private shoppers), the forts and palaces, but also the chance to sit back and relax in The Oberoi Rajvilas.
End in Udaipur, just a short one-hour flight from Jaipur. The Oberoi Udaivilas is located on the banks of Lake Pichola, overlooking the Lake Palace. With three days, you have ample time to sit back and relax. For the more active traveler, Udaipur offers a wealth of things to see and do, as well as longer day trips to the forts, palaces and villages around the city.

When to go
The climate of Rajasthan is extreme and tropical. India has three seasons, the dry season, monsoon season and winter. Summers are extremely hot and the maximum temperature can be as high as 45 C; it is hot in April through to June and is not hard to imagine why it is unpopular to visit Rajasthan during this time. Heavy rains and high humidity mark the monsoon season. During Monsoon season, which lasts from July to September, there can be electrical storms, short rainstorms and dust storms. Though it doesn’t rain all day, it does rain every day. Regardless of the rain, it is still very hot and humid. In September, the monsoon season ends and the weather gets more bearable. However, even in the winter, the climate remains rather tropical. It is advised to visit Rajasthan during the winters, after October to April. During the winter, though at night it can get quite frosty, the days are sunny but more mild, without the sticky humidity.
