Hi, we are planning an 8 night trip in Feb 2014, flying into Delhi & hiring a car & driver to visit Jaipur, Jodhpur & Udaipur. We are thinking of missing out visiting the Taj Mahal - are we mad? We want a luxurious trip so are staying at all Oberoi & Taj properties. We know that the journeys will be long & we are keen to keep travelling to a minimum. We have also heard that the drive from Delhi to Agra is not that appealing. Instead of a rushed 1 night stay in Agra we are thinking of doing 3 nights Jaipur, 2 Jodhpur & 3 Udaipur. We are travelling from Abu Dhabi, UAE where we have the magnificent Sheikh Zayed Mosque (which looks quite similar to Taj Mahal!) Is it really worth all the hassle of getting there to see the Taj?
Many Thanks - a weary Traveller Abu Dhabi
