day 1: You and your maharaja or maharani are transferred from the airport to your Delhi hotel, where your guide introduces you to the local area. Overnight in Thikana Hotel.

day 2: The two of you fall in love with the Indian capital during a day of sightseeing, including a cycle rickshaw ride around Old Delhi and visits to the Jama Majid mosque, the Mahatma Gandhi cremation ground, the Indian parliament buildings, Humayun's Tomb, and India gate. Overnight in Thikana deluxe guesthouse with breakfast and dinner.

day 3: Your English-speaking guide drives you and your beloved to Agra, stopping at Akbar's Tomb and Sikandra en route. On arrival, you visit the UNESCO World Heritage Agra Fort, before an afternoon tour of the incredible Taj Mahal and a romantic evening tonga—horse chariot—ride. Overnight at Radisson Blu Agra with breakfast.

day 4: You're driven to Jaipur via Fatehpur Sikri, a now-abandoned 16th-century city that was once the capital of Mughal emperor Akbar's empire. You and your little lovebird also stop off at Keoladeo National Park, known for its colourful birdlife. Arrival in Jaipur is late afternoon, and your evening is free for stolen moments with the option of adding an elephant ride and dinner in Dera Amer. Overnight in Jaipur with breakfast.

day 5: You and your sweetheart explore the Amber Palace with an elephant ride up to the ramparts and a guided tour. The afternoon is free to swoon over additional optional tours such as kite flying, visiting craft markets, food-shopping and tasting, and Bollywood cinema. Overnight in Jaipur with breakfast.

day 6: You'll feel butterflies in your stomach as you take a guided tour of Jaipur, including Hawa Mahal (Palace of the Winds) Jantar Mantar (observatory), City Palace, local temples, and the colourful street life. Your afternoon is free for just the two of you, while there is an additional evening option to visit Chowki Dhani village and learn about Rajasthani culture, crafts, food, and drink. Overnight at Shahpura House Hotel with breakfast.

day 7: You gaze into each other's eyes as you're driven into the semi-desert Shekhawati region, the so-called 'open art gallery of Rajasthan'. You'll cuddle up for the night in a heritage hotel that speaks to the faded grandeur of times gone by. Overnight at the Suraj Garh Fort with breakfast and dinner.

day 8: After exploring more of rural Rajasthan you return to Delhi for a final evening to explore the city. Overnight in Thikana with breakfast.

day 9: Another day in Delhi is free for some precious one-to-one time, shopping and sightseeing before you're returned to the airport for your flight home.
