Globus Icons of India: The Taj, Tigers & Beyond with Varanasi(ODE)

13 Day Tour from Delhi to Delhi 
How do you express your eternal devotion to the love of your life? Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan enlisted the help of more than 20,000 workers and 1,000 elephants to erect a towering white marble mausoleum in honor of his wife who died during childbirth. A sunrise visit to the magnificent Taj Mahal, one of the New7Wonders of the World, is just the beginning of your love affair with India. Beyond India’s most sparkling jewel lies a priceless gem mine of experiences you’ll treasure for a lifetime. Hop in a rickshaw for a ride through Delhi’s centuries-old Chandni Chowk bazaar, sit down for traditional Indian cuisine in the home of a noble family in Jaipur, and embark on three thrilling open-air safari game drives through Ranthambore National Park in search of marsh crocodiles, striped hyenas, and the elusive Bengal tiger. A mosaic of memories awaits on this radiant tour of India. Immerse yourself in the holiest of Hindu pilgrim cities when you add a Monograms vacation to Varanasi to your tour of India. A sunrise boat ride on the sacred Ganges River to watch the striking ritual of devotional bathing along the river’s edge is one of many unforgettable experiences found in this city.
