      Accompanied by your local guide, you approach the Gateway of India through a cobblestone pathway that bridges your drop-off point and the Gateway. In the comfort of your wheelchair, the flagstones are not too demanding and the curbside parapets are just the perfect height for seated travellers to gaze out at the bobbing yachts and ships or take in the majesty of the architecture.

And don't forget to pack your suntan lotion, sunhat, etc.

      Enjoy the daily activity at the vegetable and flower stalls adorning the sides of the narrow lane as you watch religious pilgrims feeding the holy cow.

      While the actual water body is not accessible due to a large number of stairs reaching down to the banks, the periphery of Banganga offers a much richer experience as you weave through the slightly bumpy cobblestones, peek into temples and get blessed by priests.

A busy metropolis with a magnificent past, an interesting heritage and scenic landscapes, it's easy to see what lures tourists here. The legacy of Mahatma Gandhi, the beauty of textiles and crafts and the relics of history also make for interesting exploration. A reflection of culturally rich Gujarat, Ahmedabad will not fail to astound you.

      Later in the afternoon, you will visit the Sabarmati Ashram, the former residence of the Father of the Nation - Mahatma Gandhi. It is said that he chose this place, as it lies between a cemetery and a prison, and anyone who joined in the non-violent revolution would land up in one of the two places. This is the place from where he initiated the freedom movement, inspiring crores of people to stand up for their rights. You can find out more as you explore the museum, which is thought-provoking and informative. Certain sections of the well-spread Ashram complex, most of which is on ground floor, are accessible by wheelchair. Enclosures on minor elevations may be accessed with a bit of assistance.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • RADISSON BLU HOTEL
  • Day 5
    Ahmedabad
    • Enjoy a heritage tour in Ahmedabad.

      A heritage tour of the old part of town is probably the best way to experience the milieu of this city's vibrant living culture. Early morning, embark on an exploration of the old city with your local guide. As you walk through the streets, check out how the locals begin their day - a visit to a temple, feeding the birds and the holy cow, while some would be busy searching for the best stock to invest in their regional daily newspaper.

      Watch out for beautifully carved bird feeders on the city's narrow streets, affluent mansions that stand out with their wooden facade, flower sellers setting up their stalls, fruit and vegetable vendors decorating their carts, sweet and savory shops busy replenishing their counters with the most delectable regional specialties.

      Later, return to the hotel - we understand you must be ravenously hungry by now.

    • Explore the city of Ahmedabad.

      After a hearty breakfast, set out to visit the famous House of Mangaldas Girdhardas (MG House), a colonial style mansion replete with courtyards and verandahs where you can relax and breathe in some fresh air. MG House is a typical rags-to-riches story of the textile magnate Mr. Mangaldas Girdhardas, who rode through the ranks to build this house in the city centre.

      Cruise through the beautiful open courtyards with an array of traditional flooring, the conventional Gujarati style wooden swings, a statue here and a sculpture there, some period furniture. What's more, you even get the opportunity to peep into a small textile gallery and admire beautiful heirlooms like Bandhej, Mata Ni Pachedi, Kalamkari and many more. It is a wonderful expression of rich Gujarati heritage, encapsulated in exotic colours, intricate designs and rich weaves.

      Later, eat as the locals do, at the traditional Vishalla Restaurant and enjoy a hearty meal with some typical local savouries and tea. Set amidst a typical rural setting, open and expansive, this place is a welcome departure from the busy city.

      Vishalla also prides itself on its presentation of Indian culture and tradition in its village-like environment with its museum of old utensils known as Veechar Utensil Museum, the only museum of its kind in the world. Designed and conceptualised by an interior designer, the museum displays a wide collection of utensils ranging from leaves and a gourd jug to stainless steel and glass utensils, metal utensils made of brass, copper, bronze, zinc and German silver, pots, spoons and vessels for churning buttermilk, etc. What makes it so memorable is that the food you now partake is also served in these utensils.

      Go around the hut-like museum and marvel at the inimitable beauty of these utensils that speak of the unmatched art and genius of mankind at a time when people did not have modern facilities . Being able to touch the exhibits is the best part of this visit and one of their crew members is always available with explanations to ensure you have a more fruitful visit.

      Both, the restaurant as well as the utensils museum, are wheelchair-inclusive.

    • Meals included: Breakfast, lunch
    • RADISSON BLU HOTEL
  • Day 6
    Ahmedabad
    • Post breakfast, the day is free to relax or you also have the option to select one of the exciting optional excursions crafted for you.

      You could choose to visit the only surviving Sun Temple in Modhera. It is one of the greatest monuments of the Solanki dynasty, whose rulers were believed to be descended from the sun. Its magnificence begins from the outside with the exterior that is intricately carved with demons and deities. Step inside to find 52 sculpted pillars depicting scenes from the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, and a hall with 12 niches that represent the different monthly manifestations of Surya (the sun god).

      This is followed by a drive to an architectural wonder, Rani Ki Vav - the queen of stepwells in India. On the list of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites, it is a perfect example of necessity leading to an invention wherein arid climate inspired the need for stepwells. The minute and exquisite carvings here are a testament to skilled craftsmanship.

      Both the attractions are partially accessible to wheelchair users. Though, it might be a little difficult to enter the main sanctum sanctorum, the affluently carved temple exteriors surely make up for it, as they offer you amazing photography opportunities. We suggest you carry a powerful pair of binoculars - a perfect value addition for a closer look at the profusely carved stepwells of Rani Ki Vav.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • RADISSON BLU HOTEL
  • Day 7
    Ahmedabad - Udaipur
    • This morning, following a heavy breakfast, you would be driven to the city of lakes, Udaipur (a journey of 260 km / approx. 6 hours drive) through the picturesque countryside of the Aravalli's, past the villages of the Bhils - the warrior tribes.

      There are provisions along the way to stop for a cup of tea or coffee along with fairly clean washrooms, these might not be completely wheelchair accessible. Conversely, we suggest you reduce your intake of beverages.

      On arrival into the beautiful city of Udaipur, check in to your hotel.

      With stunning marble palaces overlooking pristine lakes, all surrounded by the omnipresent Aravalli hills, Udaipur has all the ingredients of a romantic and dreamy destination. Everything you see, touch and smell in the Venice of the East will leave you wanting more.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Indana Palace
  • Day 8
    Udaipur
    • Enjoy a city tour of Udaipur.

      After a leisurely breakfast, we begin the day with a visit to sections of the striking City Palace Complex. Built on top of a hill, its flamboyant architecture will take your breath away. Like poetry in stone, the interiors are adorned with the beautiful tiles, paintings and mosaic tile work.

      Subject to having obtained prior permission from the City Palace Museum authorities, our vehicle can go right up to the entrance of the museum. With an elevator in place, some of the ornate courtyards (Manak Chowk and Mor Chowk), silver gallery and beautiful rooms such as Priyatam Niwas are accessible.

      From the palace, continue onto the Old City market, past the ancient Jagdish Temple. There are treasures to be found in this buzzing market, so keep a look out for colourful knick-knacks to take back. You never know what you might find.

      Later in the afternoon, we visit Saheliyon Ki Bari, the Garden of the Maids of Honour, designed as a peaceful retreat outside the old city of Udaipur. Built by Maharana Sangram Singh II for the 48 girls that he received as part of his dowry, this quiet garden presents a perfect fusion of Indian and English architecture.

      Away from the city humdrum, it is a good spot to enjoy the tranquility of lush green lawns, fountains, pools, flowers, trees and some marble art.

      Most parts of this garden are easily accessible for all travellers.

It boasts of some of the most exquisite Jain temples in the country famous for their intricate friezes and sculptures. 1,444 intricately carved marble pillars spread out over 48,000 sq ft make this one of the most impressive temples you will ever see. What's most interesting is that no two pillars are alike.

      The age-old temple architecture could not imbibe provisions for wheelchair users. However, today the temple staff is happy to carry you up the steps and around the temple in a palanquin chair provided by them.

      Following lunch, return to Udaipur.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Hilton - Jaipur
  • Day 10
    Udaipur - Jodhpur
    • Post breakfast this morning, proceed on a picturesque drive through the rugged, wooded hills of the Arvallis, to the Blue City of Jodhpur (a journey of 280 km / approx.7-hours drive).

      There are options along the way to stop for a cup of tea or coffee along with fairly clean washrooms, which might not be totally wheelchair-friendly. Conversely, we suggest reducing your intake of beverages for this journey due to paucity of accessible toilets along the way.

      Located at the edge of the Thar desert is a sea of blue brick houses called Jodhpur. It was once the capital of the former princely state of Marwar and is now the second largest city of Rajasthan. Two massive structures stand guard over Jodhpur - the intimidating Mehrangarh Fort on the west and the stately Palace of Umaid Bhawan on the east. While the graceful palaces, forts and temples bring Jodhpur's historic grandeur alive, exquisite handicrafts, folk dances, musicand the brightly attired people lend a romantic aura to the city.

      On arrival in Jodhpur, check into your hotel

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Hilton - Jaipur
  • Day 11
    Jodhpur
    • Explore the Mehrangarh Fort and the Clock Tower.

      After your breakfast at the hotel, proceed for a tour of Jodhpur starting with the mighty Mehrangarh Fort. While Rajasthan is sprinkled generously with a number of forts, Mehrangarh Forts stands out from the lot. Perched on top of a 125-metre high hill, the fort is as imposing as it is magnificent. Get ready to be immersed in legends that whisper through the walls of this monument. Visit the ramparts where you will discover antique artillery that defended the fort during its time. Inside the fort, which is still run by the Maharaja of Jodhpur, visit sections of the palaces with their delicate friezes and respective museums, displaying treasures of the royal family?
      Though you will be accompanied by a local guide, you may want to take the audio tour, as it is a part of your entrance ticket. Due to the architectural layout of this majestic fort, only a few sections are accessible using a wheelchair, which are really worth the visit.
      The entry to the fort is slightly rough through a pretty uneven walkway; the wheelchair can reach the elevator which will take you straight to the point that offers a bird's eye view of the blue houses. You can now head to the Daulat Khana Chowk, one of the most important courtyards, which are a part of the museum. As you sail through this area, listen to the royal family's anecdotes in the wonderfully scripted audio tour, gaze at the craftsmanship that was once described by Rudyard Kipling as "The Work of Angels and Giants" and get transported back in time. With a bit of assistance, you could also visit some of the adjoining sections of the museum around the courtyard.
      Seated like a Royal on your comfortable wheelchair, how about getting lost into the heart of Jodhpur? Yes, we are talking about your visit to the century-old clock tower - a prominent landmark surrounded by the vibrant sounds, sights and smells of Sardar Market, which is marked by triple gateways at its northern and southern ends. Plunge into the old city's commercial heart with crowded alleys and bazaars selling vegetables, Mathaniya'sred chilli, spices, bamboo, wooden handicrafts and sweets. And don't forget to sample the uniquely stimulating flavours of tea as well as the uniquely popular Makhania lassi for a trueRajasthaniexperience.
      Though the entry to the clock tower is through an uneven cobbled pathway, its age-old character more than makes up for this. Post this eventful day, we will head back to the hotel.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Hilton - Jaipur
  • Day 12
    Jodhpur - Jaipur
    • Following breakfast, drive through rustic countryside to the royal capital city of Jaipur (a journey of 335 km / approx.7 hours). On arrival, proceed to check in to your hotel.

      There are provisions along the way to stop for a cup of tea or coffee along with fairly clean washrooms, which might not be totally wheelchair-friendly. Conversely, we suggest reducing your intake of beverages for this journey due to paucity of accessible toilets along the way.

      With its prominent buildings bathed in pink, Jaipur is nestled between mighty forts and the rugged Aravalli Hills. Jaipur is steeped in Rajput history and is characterised by sites such as the City Palace, Jantar Mantar, Hawa Mahal and the Amber Fort, the city's star attraction. The city's bustling streets filled with old-world charm and dotted with modern trappings form a whole new world by themselves.

    • The rest of the day is at leisure for independent activities.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Crystal Sarovar
  • Day 13
    Jaipur
    • Explore Amber, en route photo stop at Hawa Mahal.

      After a hearty breakfast at your hotel begin an exciting day around Amber with a photo stop at the beautiful Hawa Mahal. It would be a great idea to carry a sunhat, sunscreen and sunglasses on sightseeing, and use washrooms just before you head out.

      The Palace of Winds is a five-storey spectacle with a dazzling pyramidal facade and overhanging windows. The journey now continues on to the ancient Amber Palace. Perched atop a ridge just outside Jaipur city, Amber is surrounded by fortified battlements, overlooking the Maota Lake. Built in the 17th century, it was once the seat of power before the birth of the Jaipur's City Palace. Today, though, it stands as a silent spectator to a bygone era, overlooking the ruins and sprawling crenulated wallsspread over the Aravalli.

      Though not long, through a winding uphill and a bit rough drive, you are taken in your car up to the main gate where you can tour sections of the palace that is famous for its excellence in design and ornate decor. With a bit of assistance through a steep ridged ramp, you can easily enter the palace and explore the second courtyard. The palace staff is happy to carry you in your wheelchair to some of the other areas of the palace connected with a reasonable number of steps. There are also places where wheelchair accessibility is possible through some easy ramps.

      Within the complex, see the Ganesh Pol, an awe-inspiring gateway painted with beautiful images of the elephant-headed god, Ganesh. You will not help but notice as you move through the halls of the princes the merging of Rajput and Mughal architectural styles making its way into the apartments, gardens and landscaping of the palace.

    • Take the rest of the day at leisure to explore and soak in the city.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Crystal Sarovar
  • Day 14
    Jaipur

One can now paint a picture about the life and times of the royals.

      Proceed to the awe-inspiring Jantar Mantar Observatory, a stone astrological and astronomical observatory built by Maharaja Jai Singh in the 18th century. Both the attractions are adjacent to each other and are wheelchair-friendly.

    Jaipur - Agra

      Following breakfast, drive from the capital of the Rajputs, to the capital of the Mughals, Agra (a journey of 230 km / 7 hours approx.). En route visit the deserted capital of the Mughals, Fatehpur Sikri.

      There are provisions for tea or coffee along the way along with fairly clean washrooms, though these might not be completely wheelchair accessible. Conversely, we suggest you to reduce your intake of beverages.

      Make a stop at the deserted fort of Fatehpur Sikri, a brilliant fusion of both Hindu and Mughal architecture. Located just 40 km from Agra, it is an enchanting folly that changed the landscape of the region, a mesmerising capital city built by Akbar in honour of Sufi saint Sheikh Salim Chisti only to be deserted within 14 years to fall to slow, poetic ruin. Ramps are placed at appropriate spots, ensuring comfortable mobility throughout the monument complex.

      On arrival in Agra, check in to your hotel.

      The stuff of epic stories and wondrous romance, Agra is enveloped in a tapestry of magic and allure. Known to the world as the city of the Taj Mahal, Agra is a story woven by the Mughals with their political design and artistic propensity. The architectural splendour of the mausoleums, forts and palaces is a vivid reminder of the opulence of the empire that came to shape the ethos of the region for centuries to come. From the Taj Mahal to the massive Agra Fort, Agra is rife with beauty, opulence and an unfound grace.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • The Surya
  • Day 16
    Agra
    • Enjoy a visit to the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort.

      The day begins with breakfast after which we begin with a tour of the Taj Mahal.

      The Taj, considered as the epitome of love, was built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his beautiful wife Mumtaz Mahal. The perfect symmetry, the ethereal glow, its unimaginable scale and the exquisite detailing covering every inch of marble justifies it as one of the most spectacular wonders of the world.

      Accompanied by your local guide, seated in your wheelchair, you can comfortably bridge the gap between the drop-off point and the entrance to the Taj Mahal complex. However, if possible, subject to having obtained prior permission on the day of visit, our vehicle can go right up to the entrance gate of the Taj Mahal complex. The complex itself is very well ramped right up to the last platform. But there is no wheelchair accessibility to the final enclosure where the cenotaphs lie.

      We don't think you would mind taking a washroom break before heading off to Agra Fort, an outstanding example of Mughal art and architecture. An impregnable military structure built by Akbar, the Agra Fort luxuriated with the elegance, lavishness and majesty of an imperial palace. Relive the era as you step into the seat of power and the stronghold of the Mughal Empire. Absorb the glory of this imposing, red sandstone structure, as you cruise conveniently through most of its well ramped palaces, pavilions and courtyards.

    • The rest of the day is at leisure for individual activities.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • The Surya
  • Day 17
    Agra - Delhi
    • Transfer from hotel in Agra to hotel in Delhi, en route visit Itmad-ud-Daulah's Tomb.

      Today, post breakfast, we visit the tomb of Itmad-ud-Daulah followed by our drive to Delhi, via the Express Highway (a journey of 202 km / 4.5-hours drive approx.). Along the way, there are provisions to stop for a cup of chai or coffee and to use fairly clean washrooms, which might not be totally wheelchair-accessible.

      The charisma of times of yore greets you right at the outskirts of the city, as you stop to visit the magnificent Itmad-ud-Daulah's Tomb, popularly known as the 'Baby Taj'. Filled with gardens, mini structures and heritage monuments, this elegant tomb is the first structure of its kind to be constructed of pure marble in Mughal India and a perfect draft of the iconic Taj Mahal. The complex itself is very well ramped right up to the last platform. But there is no wheelchair accessibility to the final enclosure where the cenotaphs lie.

      On arrival in Delhi, check in to your hotel.

      Delhi is more than just the capital of India.From the grand monuments, to the chaotic markets, every part of the city has its own story to tell. What's most fascinating is that Delhi is a city that bridges two contrasting worlds. On one hand, Old Delhi is a labyrinth of narrow lanes surrounded by charming havelis and imposing mosques. In contrast, the imperial city of New Delhi is composed of spacious, tree-lined avenues and imposing government buildings.High on adrenaline, the city has much to show you.

    • The rest of the day is at leisure to explore the city.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
  • Day 18
    Delhi
    • Explore the city of Delhi.

      After a leisurely breakfast, we start the day with a tour of Imperial Delhi. We take the morning drive as a great opportunity to drive past some of the most renowned monuments of the city like the mammoth India Gate (War Memorial Arch) that stands in the middle of the crossroads , the stately Parliament House flanked by lush gardens and the Rashtrapati Bhawan (the President's Residence).

      Next, we continue onwards to the Humayun's Tomb - a mausoleum built by Bega Begum in 1569, dedicated to her beloved husband. The monument is a seamless blend of Persian and Mughal architecture and seems to hover over a bed of well manicured lawns.

      The initial path leading you to the main complex of Humayun's tomb has some slightly bumpy patches of cobbled stones, which gradually smoothen out into fine sandstone gravel, leading up to the base of the plinth carrying the main mausoleum. Though the principal edifice on the plinth is inaccessible to wheelchairs, it is anyway viewed better from a distance.

      Following a tantalising Dilli lunch and clean and accessible washrooms, we drive through the lively streets of South Delhi and head to visit Qutab Minar, the leaning tower of India (it leans 2 feet off its axis) located in a lush green complex. Though, it was the first formal entry of Islamic rule in India, its various structures offers very interesting insights into its architecture.
      If time permits; enjoy some shopping at the designer mall, Emporio.

      Later, return to the hotel.

      A word of advice: before leaving your hotel, we suggest using the washroom as the tour of the old city takes a couple of hours to navigate comfortably on your wheelchair and there aren't any clean accessible toilets nearby. And, of course, don't forget to pack your suntan lotion, sunhat, etc.

      Your introduction to the grand old city begins with a short drive around the locality enveloping the Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India. Situated on a mound in the heart of the erstwhile capital of the Mughals, this impressive red sandstone structure projects beautifully into the Old Delhi skyline with a courtyard capable of holding 25,000 devotees.

      After having experienced all the hustle-bustle of the old city, we now head to the calm and serene Raj Ghat - the cremation site of Mahatma Gandhi. Raj Ghat with its sublime expanse of lush green trees affords a perfect ode to one of the greatest souls ever. It is bound to leave you with an aftertaste of inspiration.

      Later drive pass the Red Fort. Once the residence of the Mughal Kings till 1857, the Red Fort was the pride of the Mughal empire, built at the pinnacle of their reign. Head to the calm and serene Raj Ghat - the cremation site of Mahatma Gandhi. Raj Ghat with its sublime expanse of lush green trees affords a perfect ode to one of the greatest souls ever. It is bound to leave you with an aftertaste of inspiration.
