Cycling through Rajasthan

From £1599 for 15 days
Trip Overview
Rajasthan has landscapes varying from green rolling hills to barren deserts. The whole state is dotted with dramatic fortresses and the countryside is a patchwork of villages and towns where we see the timelessness of rural India. From the captivating Mehrangarh Fort at Jodhpur, the lakeside palace of Udaipur, the holy town of Pushkar and onto the superb 'pink city' of Jaipur, each place has its own story to tell. A fitting way to finish the trip is at the magnificent Taj Mahal. Cycling is the perfect way to explore Rajasthan, offering a fascinating insight into the traditional way of life here.

This trip is a great way of seeing a selection of famous sites as well as getting glimpses of the real India from cycling on back roads, waving at friendly locals, looping round cows, avoiding wandering pigs, nipping past sleeping dogs, pausing to allow flocks of sheep and goats to cross, overtaking bullock carts and even camels. The sometimes parched scenery may not be as lush as south India but there are plenty of sights to see along the way and regular snack stops to break up the longer cycling days. The longer rides tend to be pretty flat and there are some stiff but achievable hills too. But there's always a back up vehicle for anyone who has had enough and plenty of snacks and sweet chai to keep you going.
       
This was a great trip to be on, saw amazing sights; buildings, landscape, wildlife as well as having a chance to see and interact with local people. We cycled through some varied and interesting landscape as well as some that was dull. The roads were quite a mix, some better than the guides remembered from their last trip, others much worse. The heat was relentless on a few days due to lack of shade and start times being later due to coach transfers, this did cause problems and maybe needs more thought. I have to say that, after a few days cycling, most of us improved but the 34km extenI think the trip will be a five in future but it needs some tweaking of itinerary and trip notes to get there. sion on day eight seemed to be wasted as the countryside was probably the worst we came across, uninspiring. Overall a great trip though with a few adjustments to trip notes and tweaking of itinerary.
       
A great first experience of India
       
This trip was great! The cycling wasn't overly difficult. The trip offers a wide range of sites to please everyone. Our guides and crew were excellent, the bikes were great as was the support vehicle. We always had drinking water and snacks while we cycled. They took great care of us.
       
India is an amazing place - totally different & totally mad but what an experience it was. This is a busy holiday packed with so many different places and many wonderful memories.
       
A fantastic whirlwind assault on the senses - incredible sights, smells and wonderful children waving us on throughout the villages. Delhi was very smoggy and choked to death with traffic, but still amazing views from the coach window as we battled the congestion, but after the overnight train, the visuals start.
       
A great 2 week trip visiting many cities, Palaces and Forts in Rajasthan. Great accommodation, variety of activities and fun guides. Cycling is varied and we were well looked after.
       
Enjoyed it a lot - amazing forts and palaces and mostly good cycling (we had one day on really bad roads I could have done without). Only criticism was lack of free time on our own. As we were a small group (6) it was hard not to join in all the time. On the Kerala trip we had whole days free in Cochin and Varkala but there was nothing similar on this trip. I did get tired of the food - chili with everything.
       
A fantastic experience that lets you get up close to the real India with all its sights, smells and sounds. A great way to have an active holiday whilst a packed itinerary allows you to see many of the iconic sights of India.
       
A great mixture of cycling and sight seeing. A great deal was packed in so not one for those wanting a relaxing holiday. Once again Exodus combine well planned routes, great support and ethical tourism (which is wht=y so many of us come back!).
       
Nice way to discover Indi by bike.
       
Just returned from a wonderful cycling trip from Delhi, around Rajasthan, finishing in Agra with the Taj Mahal. Wonderfully organised with plenty of cycling through rural India and some exciting cycling in cities. Bhopesh and Anand were great tour leaders and the support team were also first class. The premium departure meant we stayed in some very beautiful hotels and the leaders arranged evening meals in some lovely restaurants.
       
A brilliant experience. Seeing Rajasthan close up in the raw. Great itinerary with good hotels throughout. Finally a word for the guides Krishna and Sanjay and the support team. They were fantastic and their knowledge and experience of the history and culture topped the trip. They ensured the group gelled from the start and many friends have been made. It has whetted our appetite to do more of this in the future. I thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone who likes to cycle and see and feel the atmosphere of India.
       
This was a very well designed tour by our leader Krishna. Someone who both understands and loves the region and its history.The distance cycled (519.4K) was perfect.
