You shall be boarding a bus/coach from our partner hotel in New Delhi to Bharatpur (ETD 0700 hrs).   A 4-5 hour journey will bring you  to Bharatpur (ETA 12:00 hrs).  After lunch, we shall be having an exhaustive briefing regarding the riding conditions & safety.

Day 02: Bharatpur (short familiarisation ride to Deeg - 90 KM)

Early morning you can visit the Keoladeo Ghana National Park and do some bird watching.  Soon after breakfast, we shall be doing a "familiarisation" ride (in an effort to know your bike better, to get familiar with its controls and the riding conditions in India) to Deeg where we also visit the beautiful Palace.  The rest of the evening is free for leisure.

Day 03: Bharatpur - Jaipur (215 KM)

After breakfast you’ll kick-start your motorcycle tour and head towards Jaipur, the state capital of Rajasthan.

Day 04: Jaipur

The day is yours for sightseeing and Jaipur has a lot to offer in that field.  A bus coach and an English guide will take you around the most popular spots (0830-1630 hrs).

Day 05: Jaipur - Nawalgarh (195 KM)

Leaving Jaipur, you head north-west on the NH-11 towards the Shekhwati region, to the town of Nawalgarh.   

Day 06: Nawalgarh

Referred to as the "open air art gallery" of Rajasthan, the entire Shekhawati region is dotted with fascinating mansions (havelis) embellished with frescoes & colourfully painted walls.  You may either explore the town or use the day for rest/ relaxation.  Alternatively, if you are keen to ride, we’ll be organising a short ride in the surrounding region (optional).

Day 07: Nawalgarh - Bikaner (250 KM)

Joining the NH-11 again, you’ll head westwards towards the city of Bikaner, one of the famous desert cities of Rajasthan.  Bikaner's landscape is dominated by the indomitable Junagarh Fort and the red sandstone Lalgarh Palace.

Day 08: Bikaner - Jodhpur (250 KM)

After breakfast, you’ll saddle-up again for a 250 Km ride to the city of Jodhpur.  Today our route turns south as we head through the Thar desert into the Marwar region of Rajasthan.    

Day 09: Jodhpur

The day is yours to visit the places of interest like the impressive Mehrangarh Fort, the spectacular Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jaswant Thada or the bazaars around the clock tower.

Day 10: Jodhpur - Ranakpur - Udaipur (270 KM)

After Breakfast it’ll be time to bid adieu to “the blue city” and take your journey further south towards the Aravali hills.  On the way, you’ll get the opportunity to make a brief stop at Ranakpur, a small town located in a wooded valley on the western side of the Aravali range, famous for the white marble Jain temple with intricate carvings.  Your final destination today will be Udaipur, the city of lakes.

Day 11:  Udaipur

Udaipur, a tourists delight as it is, will most likely have you spending the entire day visiting all it has to offer.  The evening will be a great time to absorb the stunning views of the “Pichola Lake” from the sunset point or one of the numerous roof-top restaurants lining the "ghats" around the lake and reminiscing the past few days after you left Bharatpur, as the sun sets.

Day 12: Udaipur - Chittorgarh - Bijaipur (165 KM)

Heading north-east from Udaipur, you first stop today will be the spectacular fort of Chittorgarh, one of the most romantic of Rajasthan’s fortifications.  After a visit to the Fort,  you’ll ride further 40 KM to Castle Bijaipur, now a heritage hotel and your destination of the day.

Day 13: Bijaipur - Pushkar (240 KM)

Leaving Bijaipur, you'll head north to Pushkar, a holy town famous for its lake, various ghats and temples spread all around it.

Day 14: Pushkar  - Bharatpur (355 KM)

Today, you’ll saddle-up one last time and head back to Bharatpur.  Having gone around the best of  Rajasthan you’ll be “homing” back to this bird sanctuary.  Tonight’s dinner will be a “Farewell” dinner.

Day 15: Bharatpur - Agra - New Delhi

Today, it’ll be time to say good-bye to the Royal Enfields & Rajasthan.  After breakfast, you’ll be boarding a bus coach for the last leg of this journey.  However, first stop of the day will be the city of Agra where you will see the most spectacular of the monuments on this tour, The Taj Mahal.  From Agra you shall proceed to New Delhi (ETA 1700 hrs).  If you’ve purchased a “Farewell” add-on you’ll be transferred to our partner hotel where your accommodation has been arranged.

We regularly get emails from around the world enquiring about the standard of accommodation on our Rajasthan tours.  We realized many assumed that since our tour prices are “budget”, the only way we must be cutting on costs is by arranging “cheaper” accommodation.  Well, that is not the case at all.  Contrary to the notion, the accommodation is the highlight of our tours.  None of our hotels fall in the “budget” category.  We have carefully chosen a mix of the best possible “mid-range” hotels all of which are very popular on this travel circuit.  Some are “heritage” properties; erstwhile residences of royalty,  now converted into luxury hotels.  We call it “affordable luxury”.  Most of them are ranked within top 10 in their respective cities on “TripAdvisor”.    We are giving you a glimpse of the hotels on a small “Photo Slide Show” we’ve added on our website’s Rajasthan Gallery page (below the videos).
