Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.”

If 2020 is the lost year for travel, 2021 will be the year of discovering new places and finding yourself again. But in a pre-vaccine Covid-19 era, leaving the country and travelling to a foreign location seems a tad bit risky. So, how about exploring a destination close to home and rediscovering it in ways you never thought possible? A heritage tour of Rajasthan promises just that- The comfort of exploring a familiar landscape with the thrill of stumbling upon new experiences.
