More Information
Enter a world of color, culture, and cherished spiritual tradition of India and Nepal. Your guided tour of India, Nepal, and Ganges River cruise begins in the bustling city of Delhi. You'll tour the city with your expert local guide, and take a rickshaw ride through the Chandni Chowk bazaar-brimming with everything from silver and spices to saris of every color. You'll visit Qutub Minar-the world's largest brick minaret, and see Delhi's largest Sikh gurudwara (house of worship), before traveling to Agra-site of the legendary Taj Mahal.

Join a sunrise excursion to the Taj Mahal-the iconic memorial build by Moghul emperor Shah Jahan for his beloved wife. More than 20 years in the making, the Taj Mahal stands as the pinnacle of love's devotion, and is also yours to experience at sunset if you wish.

You'll enjoy the city of Jaipur, with its famous Palace of the Winds, and spectacular Amber Fort, before flying to Kolkata to board your Ganges river cruise. The holy river of Hinduism, the Ganges, slowly courses through one of the world's most fertile and populated areas. Along its banks, human life is connected to its waters and you'll get a glimpse of life away from India's big cities. See muslin weaving in Kalna and candy making in Matiari. Stop in Murshidabad for an excursion to Azimganj and Jiaganj-to savor authentic Indian tea, as well as stunning gold and silversmith workshops. You'll meet saree weavers, goldsmiths, and pottery makers. Explore the fascinating Hare Krishna headquarters in Mayapur, and visit Saint Mother Teresa's former home upon your return to Kolkata.

In Kathmandu, sightseeing is spread over two leisurely days. Visits include Hanuman Dhoka, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Temple of Kumari, residence of the Living Goddess, a child thought to be the reincarnation of a Hindu goddess. You'll also journey to Patan and Bouddhanath, Nepal's largest stupa.

All of this and more await you on this once-in-a-lifetime guided tour of India and Nepal with a Ganges River cruise.
