Delhi-Agra-Jaipur-Jodhpur-Jaisalmer-Udaipur in Two Weeks in February?

My girlfriend and I arrive in Delhi on February 15, and we depart on February 28. We plan to hire a car for all of our travel. It is our first trip to India.

We would like to visit Agra, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, and Udaipur. Will our travel dates allow for this itinerary? We can fly back from Udaipur to Delhi at the end of the trip, if necessary. We definitely want to see Agra, Jaisalmer, and Udaipur. If the entire itinerary is too much, what should we cut out? Thanks.

Definately do-able. Have a look at this tour from Namaste India Tours for an example of an itinerary. It's 16 days so too long for you but you can get a quote from them and many others for the sites that you want to see.

My current plan is Delhi (1 night), Agra (1), Bharatpur (2), Jaipur (2), Pushkar (1), Jodhpur (3), Udaipur (4), train to Jaipur (1), Ranthambhore (4), Alwar (3), Delhi (3).

I'm sure you can miss out Bharatpur and Pushkar and spend less nights in Udaipur and Jodhpur to fit it want you want.

For interest, travel costs in the one of the pre-bookable-from-abroad operators for 11 days Delhi to Udaipur will be around Rs30k in a pretty good/big car.
But others will rightly tell you that this is way too dear: this thread goes over all this stuff and if you get the train to Jodhpur like Dhans did you'll be able to get 10 days for Rs21k.

If you find yourself ending your trip in Udaipur you can catch the overnight Mewar Express back to New Delhi. It's got all classes. Alternatively, catch the UDZ GWL SUP EXP back to Agra, and taxi back to Delhi after an overnight.

If you fancy doing a couple of overnight trains you could start with a train (DLI JSM EXPRESS) from Delhi to Jaisalmer, taxi to Jodhpur, taxi to Udaipur via Rankpur/Kumbalgarh, overnight train to Agra train and taxi back to Delhi.

Hopefully there's some things here to think about and help you on your way...back bear in mind...I've done none of this...yet!

completing all the places in this sort of time looks a bit ok. [if covered by car as you mentioned lately] i would love to have this plan-

delhi -agra-bharatpur-jaipur-pushkar-udaipur -jodhpur-jaisalmer-jodhpur-delhi.

all the places come along with each other in a round cricle so make some what easier for you..can stay at each place as you like else skip which you you dont like ..

on the other side catch a train staright from delhi to jaisalmer than go this way

jaisalmer-jodhpur-udaipur-pushkar-jaipur-bharatpur- agra-delhi..

bet come helpful for you

It's all about your interests and priorities. So far, I've spent close to 20 days in Delhi and my list to see places/things next time there is long and growing.

News from Ranthambore suggest that several cubs were born recently. From previous info, you might have to make more than one effort and in favourable seasons to see more than an occasional footprint.

Cut out Jaipur if you have to. It's Rajasthan-lite.

A car and driver will give you all sorts of flexibility to adjust as you go.
