The holy Ganges is the lifeline of India, and its sights, sounds and smells fill your senses as you experience the daily life of the river aboard a private boat in this Golden triangle with Varanasi tour. Glide past the riverside temples and ritual bathers who use the waters to absolve their sins and, in Varanasi, discover the meaning behind the ancient Hindu funeral ceremonies that cremate the dead while afloat in the Ganges. You’ll also explore the wonders of the Taj Mahal in Agra; ride an elephant to Amber Fort and the vast City Palace of Jaipur; visit the ancient ghost city of Fatehpur Sikri; and take a guided tour of the colonial sites of New Delhi.
Beyond the many photo opportunities at India’s most famous monuments, this trip takes you on a genuine spiritual journey. Private tour guides will help you feel the soulful connection the people of India have with the Ganges and reveal the meaning of ancient Buddhist and Hindu sites.
