Hey all I will be traveling to India in December. I have a school program in Kerala first then will be flying to meet my brother in Delhi afterwards. Here is the itinerary we have planned, after spending time on this site I feel like we could fit more into it but not sure how to work that out. Can anyone give some advice on where to go and how to fit it in? Or is this good as is?? What is not to be missed? Thanks in advance!

Dec 16: Arrive Delhi in the evening
Dec 17: Day Trip to Agra
Dec18-20: Delhi, overnight train to Varanasi
Dec 21-25: Varnasi, half day visit to Sarnath in there (is this too long??)
Dec 25: Flight from Varanasi to Jaipur arriving in the evening
Dec 25-29: Jaipur
Dec 29:Train back to Delhi
Dec 29-31: Delhi
Dec 31: Afternoon flight home

Personally, I'd replace Jaipur with Udaipur.

Try Delhi-Varanasi-Agra-Udaipur-Delhi (all overnight trains)

agree with steven, no need to be in jaipur despite spending money for flight and than not so much time to city.

Include both and make it Delhi/Varanasi/Agra/Jaipur/Udaipur. Each place has its own attractions.

absolutely if you can make it to Udaipur, you wont regret it
When you go to Varanasi I really recommend staying at the Shanti, I had an awesome five nights there.

You have enough time to check out Udaipur or Jodhpur, even Jaisalmer if you push it a bit . . . personally I would recommend Jodhpur, the blue city is really charming, Udaipur is too commercial for my taste . . .

what if . . . maybe . . . say . . . suppose!

Thanks All, I have made some changes and I am now staying one less day in Varanasi to allow for 2 days in Jaipur and 3 days in Jodhpur...Now the question is, has anyone done a day camel trek from Jodhpur? Do these exist?

Three days in Jodhpur! What would you do in Jodhpur for three days? Yes, you can find camels in Jodhpur, you can also find semi-arid desert conditions in Jodhpur on the periphery of the city. But for a desert safari, the real place is Jaisalmer. BTW, does Udaipur figure in your itinarary, Venice of Rajasthan, as they say?

i agree with you, 3 days in a row does n't seems to be a wise idea in jodhpur. instead safari should be done in jaisalmer.
