THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE + RANTHAMBORE…BEST KNOWN AS…’TAJ & TIGERS’
Let’s be honest here. The most popular tour really is the ‘Golden Triangle’ (without Ranthambore & the tigers!), which typically runs for 6 days / 5 nights or 7 days / 6 nights. However, for those visitors with more time available, the ‘Golden Triangle with Ranthambore’ (with tigers) is definitely the preferred choice. 10 days/ 9 nights is the ideal duration for the famous ‘Taj & Tigers’ tour.
