Dining

Inspired cuisine Inspired Cuisine — Every Day of Your Trip

Whether you’re dining on gourmet fare in your hotel’s restaurant; a home-hosted meal of local items; or a buffet overflowing with fresh produce, cheeses, and international favorites, mealtime is an experience to be savored. Breakfasts are all served buffet style with international menu options. Included lunches and dinners feature Indian cuisine. Although the Indian dishes are similar to those you may enjoy in North America, the flavors may not be the same because of different local spices. They may also seem spicier than you are used to. Special meals are also featured during your journey, including Welcome and Farewell Dinners, a home-hosted dinner in Jaipur, and lunch at the Maharaja’s City Palace. Your Adventure Leader and City Hosts can recommend specialty dishes that you may want to try when dining on your own at the hotel or a local restaurant. All meals give you a varied, authentic experience that reflects the true India.

Dining in India
Breakfasts are all served buffet style with international menu options. Included lunches and dinners feature Indian cuisine. Although the Indian dishes are similar to those you may enjoy in North America, the flavors may not be the same because of different local spices. They may also seem spicier than you are used to. During your river cruise, dining varies between set menu gourmet meals and buffet offerings.

Special Meals
Special meals are also featured during your journey, including a Welcome Dinner, a Farewell Dinner, a home-hosted dinner in Jaipur, and lunch at the Maharaja's City Palace. Your Adventure Leader can recommend specialty dishes that you may want to try when dining on your own at the hotel or a local restaurant.

Home hosted mealHome-Hosted Visits Give You a Taste of Local Life
Wherever you travel, one of the best ways to connect with local people is to share a meal, snack, or coffee — with a side of conversation. Whether you're having tea in a family home, sharing a farmhouse lunch, or attending a community-hosted meal, there's nothing more personal — and fun! — than bonding over food, getting to know each other, and exchanging ideas about life in your respective countries. In fact, most of our travelers report that their home-hosted experience was a highlight of their journey. During your stay in the "Pink City" of Jaipur, you will savor Indian specialties during dinner with a welcoming local family.

Healthy choices plateHealthy Choices at Every Meal

Along with international fare, you'll also find many American favorites and choices for the health-conscious. We are happy to accommodate any special dietary requests you may have, such as low-salt, low-fat, gluten-free, vegetarian, diabetic, and lactose-intolerant, provided your requests are received at the time of booking.
