Insight into life seems to be the dominant theme in Indian history, religion, and literature. It’s also a hallmark of travel to India. Oberoi Hotels and Geringer Global Travel have partnered to create an ideal package for first time visitors to the subcontinent to begin experiencing that insight.
The tour follows a route known in Indian tourism circles as the Golden Triangle. That itinerary is by far the most popular route for first time visitors from the U.S. to India, and is a combination of Delhi, Rajasthan and of course, Agra and the Taj Mahal.
Travelers who book Geringer's 12-day Oberoi India Summer Special by July 15 will receive a $200 per person discount on travel by Sept. 30. The tour, priced from $4,095 per person double land only, visits Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur, and goes beyond with a visit to Mumbai using upgraded luxury accommodations including Oberoi hotels in Delhi and Jaipur.
Passengers receive a bottle of wine upon arrival in Delhi, immersive excursions and the choice of dinner or a private meeting with a local contemporary artist in Udaipur. The package includes transfers, all tours, and activities listed in the itinerary, 12-night accommodations, complementary room upgrades in Delhi and Jaipur, meeting with an artist, some meals, and taxes.
The tour also includes a cooking demonstration and dinner in Jaipur, a private boat ride on Lake Pichola in Udaipur, an exclusive high tea at the home of a local family in Agra, and a guided walk through Kachhpura Village ending with a sunset watch over the Taj Mahal. The Taj Mahal can be viewed from every guestroom at The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra. While staying at the Oberoi properties, guests will receive a 25 percent discount on spa services.
Geringer Global Travel is one of those companies that is a true reflection of its owner. Susan Geringer is dedicated to creating experiential and luxury travel to India, Bhutan, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. She features one-on-one interactions with the local people and their everyday lives. She was a psychotherapist for 30 years but decided to pursue her passion for travel several years ago. She carefully plans her itineraries with great attention to detail.
In Oberoi, Geringer is working with a partner that has one of the most storied names in Indian hospitality. Many travelers have some trepidation about the comfort of traveling in India. India’s luxury hotels rival the hotels of any country in the world; no Indian brand more so than Oberoi. In recent years, the chain has been internally producing experiential programs to offer guests in order to achieve that same kind of one-on-one interaction that characterizes Geringer’s programs.
