The tour starts in Delhi and UNESCO World Heritage Sites will be seen. From Delhi, the tour will head to Jaipur and after Jaipur participants will experience the highlight of the package, the Holi festival, or festival of colours. This is a nationwide festival that truly enchants even the most seasoned of travellers. Different hues of gulal and abeer are tossed and quite quickly, crowds of people are covered from head to toe in a rainbow of colours. The tour will continue through to Agra, home of the Taj Mahal, and then Varanasi. On their return to Delhi, the tour group will take a ride on the River Ganges, one of the most sacred rivers in the world. (http://www.chinapac.ca)
