Self(55) & wife(45), mature but adventurous, have flights into Delhi 19th Oct, departing 5th Nov. We usually 'flashpack' independently in less touristy areas but here we want to see the 'sights'.
We will land in Delhi 0700 hrs & immediately travel by car to Fetephur Sikri (organised by hotel at a v good rate), next day early car to start to see Taj Mahal /Fort in Agra then....
We'd thought of:-
Agra to Jaipur (car or train?), to Udaipur (train), to Jodphur (by car taking in Kumbalgarh/Ranakpur), to Jaisalmer(train), then somehow getting back to Delhi for home (maybe a flight Jodphur Delhi if this makes more time available.
This means repeating the Jaisalmer-Jodphur journey of course unless we did Udaipur-Jaisalmer-Jodphur-Delhi
We have 18 days to get the best of the area ...is this a good itinary? Suggestions please...preferably with ideas as to how long in each place / modes of transport / dropping or adding places.
Budget is not the major issue; most important is getting the most out of the trip... we enjoy mixing/meeting people so we don't want a full tour in a car.
All tips welcome.
Please assist...we will continue to do the research but this is a 'last minute' opportunity
Trains...seen the threads, is it easy to book from the uk, or should i use an agent?

Petersclan - I suggest you first check out this thread
which is in the forum you are presently posting in, now.
Try and rough up a general itinerary - where you want to go, how many days at each place, and the general direction of the route. What you have so far outlined for us, I think is possible in the 18 days. Do a more precise timetable.
Set it out here, and it will be easier for us to comment and help.

Re trains - yes, do try booking from UK. Look at Threads in Indian Railways Forum for help there.
Mod Note: I can see your question requires urgent attention, because you are leaving very shortly. But 'Help???' doesn't give us a full idea, and often puts people off! So I have modified your title.
Every cloud has a silver lining!
