India - BobDecember 2, 2013
This exclusive trip is by invitation only, with member agencies selected based on overall production! The incredible, eight day event crisscrossed India by private jet. We visited Delhi and Mumbai, as well as to more rural areas like Udaipur and Jodphur, and had a fantastic stay at the Oberoi Udaivilas; named Top Hotel in the World by Travel + Leisure readers in 2007. Other highlights included:
A family, wedding hosted by Aman
Tours of Colonial Delhi sightseeing by Amber Tours
Private tours and shopping in Udaipur and a dinner at the Udaipur City Palace hosted by Micato Safaris
Dinner and fireworks at Oberoi Udaivilas hosted by Oberoi Hotels and Resorts
An in-depth city tour
A final gala reception at the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower hosted by Taj Hotels with everyone dressed in traditional Indian garb
It is difficult to convey the sensory overload such a trip brings with it. I am hope that my videos will show what its like in India.
We stayed at the Oberoi New Delhi, Oberoi Amarvilas and Oberoi Udaivilas, the Taj Lake Palace, The Imperial, the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower, The Taj Palace, Umaid Bhawan Palace and Aman New Delhi—all great hotels.
The on-sites all did a great job: Peirce & Leslie Amber Tours.
The tour operators Micato Safaris; Greaves Tours.
One of the memorable events was sitting with the Maharaja of Jodphur during a dinner event. I video,™d the event—it was way over the top in opulence! I hope to have the videos on our web site in a couple weeks.
