We leave for India on the 18th of Jan. 2008 and have 6 weeks ... We, that is a couple 50+, travel experienced in Asia, first time in India (though speaking some Hindi ), on a mostly medium budget. No pre-bookings (except the hotel in Dilli), because we want to stay where we like it as long as we want to ...

Our plans are so far:
Delhi, 4 days, to get used to ... whatever
Varanasi
Khajhurao
Orccha
Agra
Jaipur
Ajmer/Pushkar
Jaisalmer
Jodhpur
Udaipur
Ajanta/Elora
Mumbai (at least 3 days)

Iīm sure there will be other stopovers - Bundi sounds pretty, but I donīt know if it fits in ... We are planing to travel by train and in Rajasthan also by car with driver. Buses are ruled out, my hubby is a big guy.

What do you think - is this to much for firsttimers? What could we skip? Are there other places not to miss?

That's not too much to fit into 6 weeks.

But please don't miss out Bundi - it's one of the nicest places in the whole of India and not yet overrun with tourists.

Give Ajmer/Pushkar a miss. Pushkar is a tourist circus, overrun with new-age hippies and Israeli backpackers, with little to occupy you for more than an hour.

That sounds like a good place to avoid - so we will try to get to Bundi. Thanks for the advice. What do you think - where would it fit in? Between Udaipur and Ajanta Caves? Or is it better to go there from one of the other spots?
