On The Go Tours, an award-winning tour operator specialising in locally led group tours and tailor-made holidays to over 60 worldwide destinations, recently hosted a group of Australian travel agents in India on a specialised version of their Shere Khan ten day tour.

With India continuing to grow as a key outbound destination for Australians, it has grown 15% in the last ten years and is now the 12th most popular outbound destination, first hand product knowledge of this fascinating country is invaluable.

The group included representatives from a range of South Australian and Northern Territory based travel agents including,  Flight Centre Travel Group, RAA Travel, Inflight Travel and Escape Travel. The tour was hosted by On The Go’s BDM for South Australia and the Northern Territory, Di Bignell.

The ten-day itinerary was led by On The Go Tours expert local guide Satendra and took the group to experience India’s many spectacular cultural attractions as well as go in search for the elusive Bengal Tiger. Starting in Delhi the famil group travelled south to take in the sights of India’s famed ‘Golden Triangle’, followed by a jungle wildlife adventure in Ranthambore National Park before catching the  train back to Delhi.

This diverse itinerary included everything from iconic bucket list attractions such as; visiting India’s largest mosque, uncovering the secrets of the legendary Taj Mahal and exploring the hilltop forts and regal palaces of Jaipur, to local experiences such as joining in evening prayer (Aaarti) at the Karauli City Palace and visiting a cotton weaving house in Jaipur to see fabric dyeing and block printing demonstrations.

The agents didn’t waste any time getting to know India and opted for a ‘Delhi by bike’ bolt on experience to uncover little known corners of the city, before they took off on their Shere Khan adventure.

The group enjoyed range of comfortable lodgings, from the swish Piccadily in Delhi to the beautiful heritage Mandawa Haveli in Rajasthan. Without a doubt the highlight was staying at the Palace Bhanwar Vilas which belong to the current Maharaja of the Karauli State. As overnight guests, the travel agents could explore the Palace, guest quarters, banquet and reception halls, stables and grounds at leisure. Lucky travellers can also spot the sovereigns residing in the Palace and enjoy a tour from the young Princess who occasionally plays tour guide.
