Our fabulous Luxury India Tour with Oberoi Hotels will awaken all your senses, taking in stunning architecture, rich culture and kaleidoscopic colours. With the opulent Oberoi hotels as your base and Indian Excursions as your tour operator, you can look forward to an award-winning combination for the ultimate luxury India tour experience. Readers of Travel+Leisure magazine voted the Oberoi hotels as their ‘Best in the World’ last year, and it’s easy to see why: these beautiful properties exude elegance and sophistication while remaining true to their surroundings with authentic Indian charm. Enjoy a view of the Taj Mahal from your private balcony at The Oberoi Amarvilas in Agra; soak up the romance and feudal splendour of Rajasthan at The Oberoi Rajvilas in Jaipur. Combine this with our experienced guides, professional drivers and seamless arrangements, and we assure a delightful and unforgettable luxury India tour. Though this itinerary has been designed based on routes and hotels much-loved by our past guests, it’s completely flexible – every detail can be tweaked or completely transformed until we’ve tailor-made your ideal journey.
The rest of the day, if any, is at leisure to settle in, and recuperate from your international journey. Depending on how early in the day you arrive, if you’d like to begin exploring this afternoon, you can let us know anytime. Your chauffeur is always on hand, and we’re only a quick call away on your complimentary mobile phone (or WhatsApp, if you prefer).
Later, continue to Dera Amer to spend a memorable evening with elephants. It’s a magical place on the outskirts of the city, where you can spend time up close with elephants by helping to feed and bathe them, before taking a gentle walk together through the surrounding forest at sunset (Dera Amer do not encourage rides). If meeting elephants isn’t your thing, this can certainly be removed or replaced. Perhaps with a private cooking class or a special dinner recommendation. For those who are interested in spending time with elephants, Dera Amer is a fantastic and ethical place to do it.
Optionally, those with a keen interest in colonial history may like to extend their luxury India tour with a stay at The Oberoi Grand in Kolkata (click here for a sample itinerary). Or take in the spectacular Himalayan foothills at the Oberoi Wildflower Hall in Shimla (we have a fabulous Shima extension that pairs perfectly with the luxury Oberoi tour described above). Alternatively, you could shake things up by replacing one or two of your Oberoi hotels with a beautiful palace for variety (we recommend the Taj Rambagh Palace or SUJÁN Rajmahal Palace, and the Taj Lake Palace). For inspiration, you might enjoy checking out our Insider’s Guide to Oberoi Hotels in India, and 25 of our favourite luxury experiences in Rajasthan. All our tours are private, and tailor-made to complement your taste and interests. In essence, the itinerary described above is just a starting point, and together we can refine it into your ideal Indian experience.
