Like many other destinations where gluten free awareness is limited, India has been challenging for gluten free travelers. But now, one of our favorite travel agents, Ellen Morse of Gluten Free Travel-Us, has worked with a very reputable company in India, to develop an itinerary for travel to northern India. It includes all the must-see attractions of this diverse country, and best of all, the hotels where you'll stay and dine have been carefully vetted.
Ellen was diagnosed with Celiac as a toddler and has been gluten free for many decades…long before "gluten free" was a household term. And she has also spent decades working as a travel agent. As awareness of Celiac Disease and gluten free diets has spread across the globe, she has been thrilled to merge her two areas of expertise and work with high quality travel partners to offer gluten free itineraries to fellow Celiacs.
In India, Ellen works with a company called Travel Scope India to design the itineraries and vet the hotels. Ellen does not advocate dining at typical restaurants while traveling in India. That is why she and Travel Scope India have spent considerable time vetting the chefs at luxury hotels where her clients will eat all their meals. These hotels are among the finest India has to offer, with desirable locations, luxury accommodations, and full amenities.
This northern India itinerary allows Ellen's clients to see all that India has to offer…from its ancient roots to its foreign influences. This vibrant country is full of incredible contrasts and paradoxes. Wherever you're from, you'll find something that touches your heart in India.
This northern India itinerary includes being escorted by expert local guides in New Delhi, Agra, Ranthambore, Jaipur, Jodhpur, and Udaipur. This is not a group tour. As with all of Ellen's itineraries, you can customize the trip based on your desired time of travel, length of stay, budget, and interests.
Highlights include the Taj Mahal and other examples of Mughal architecture, Agra Fort, historic gardens, tombs, New Delhi's Colonial Delhi Heritage Buildings, Qutab Minar, the Hauz Khas complex, a Sikh temple, Lodi Gardens, a rickshaw ride, mosques, Ranthambore National Park evening Jeep Safari and morning Game Drive, an elephant safari in Dera Amer, an observatory, the City Palace in Jaipur, Mehrangarh Fort and Jaswant Thada in Jodhpur, temples, bazaars, and a boat ride on Lake Pichola.
