See the best of India’s man-made and natural icons with ‘Taj Mahal and Tigers’ River Cruise Package Save up to A$2230 per couple – Book by April 30, 2019
The majestic jewel of India, the Taj Mahal, the legendary Bengal tiger and the remote, sacred river of Brahmaputra combine as highlights of a new river cruise tour to India in 2019.
Released by Cruise Traveller in partnership with Indian river cruise company, Adventure Resorts and Cruises (ARC), the 12-night ‘Taj Mahal and Tigers’ package in December, 2019, links a five-night tour of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur with a seven-night cruise on the sacred Brahmaputra River in Assam, a culturally intact region in far-north-east India that sees few tourists but boasts so much wildlife it is known as the ‘Serengeti of India’.
Cruise Traveller and ARC are offering an early-bird discount of up to A$2230 per couple on the Taj Mahal and Tigers tour if booked by April 30, 2019. Including international return flights with Singapore Airlines from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide or Perth plus domestic flights in India, the 12-night land and river cruise package is available from A$6495 per person, twin-share, in a riverview stateroom – a saving of A$764 including the early-bird discount. The fare in a suite is from A$7555 per person, twin-share – a saving of A$1,115 including the early-bird discount. The early-bird discounts are only available if booked before April 30, 2019, and are subject to availability.
Departing Australia on December 9, 2019, the tour package offers two nights in Delhi, a night in Agra and two nights in the ‘pink city’ of Jaipur, which, together, form India’s popular ‘Golden Triangle’. The on-land itinerary takes travellers on daily excursions that include the iconic Taj Mahal at sunset, the Palace of the Winds – the Hawa Mahal, the formidable forts of Rajasthan and an authentic Indian dinner with a local family in Jaipur.
Travellers then board ARC’s boutique, 46-guest river ship, MV Mahabaahu, for a seven-night journey from Neamati Ghat to Guwahati on one of India’s great rivers, the Brahmaputra, in the mystical, culturally intact state of Assam, a rich, green land of valleys located in the foothills of the Himalayas. The cruise features aromatic Indian cuisine, complimentary excursions and activities such as morning yoga and visits to remote tribal villages. Other highlights include sacred monasteries, tea plantations, ancient palaces and bonfires on deserted river islands at night. The Brahmaputra River also boasts views of the 7000m-high Himalayas.
Assam is home to the greatest population of single horned rhinos in the world which are protected in wildlife sanctuaries that harbour other rare animals like Bengal tigers and wild water buffalo. Assam also provides one of the last wild habitats for the Asian elephant. The Taj Mahal and Tigers cruise tour is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see these animals in their natural environment.
