Enjoy the perfect introduction to India’s Golden Triangle, three most popular destinations – Delhi, Agra and Jaipur.
Starting in the capital Delhi, explore winding narrow streets crammed with ancient architecture and bustling medieval bazaars. Head to Agra to witness the Taj Mahal in all its unrivalled glory, explore the ghost city of Fatehpur Sikri and venture to the fabled “Pink City” of Jaipur to see the magnificent Amber Fort and the Palace of the Winds.
You will meet your guide on arrival, transfer and check-in to your hotel. Enjoy free time for the remainder of the day. India’s capital is an exciting, busy, and often chaotic city but it’s also one of the most interesting in the world with historical sites from different eras, museums and galleries, shops and endless bazaars!
Head out on a guided city tour of Old and New Delhi. Discover the sights and sounds of this exciting capital. Explore Jama Masjid, the “Great Mosque”, and enjoy its massive courtyard and take a rickshaw through the old bazaar. Pick up trinkets and textiles, do some window shopping at Chandni Chowk market and enjoy the 18th century Sikh temple of Gurdwara SisGanj. (B)(L)
This morning you’ll visit the Agra Fort en-route to your hotel in Agra. Later in the day you’ll tour the majestic Taj Mahal. The Taj Mahal is known as one of the wonders of the world. This marble masterpiece is a stunning example of the perfect interplay of art and architecture. Built in memory of his wife Mumtaj Mahal, this mausoleum today houses the remains of both the king and the queen. (B)
This morning you’ll travel via the ghost city of Fatehpur Sikri to Jaipur. Fatehpur Sikri was founded by the mighty Mughal Emperor Akbar who chose this place to create a new capital for India. The ‘Pink City’ of Jaipur is a friendly, busy city crammed with palaces and bazaars full of jewellery, textiles and folk-based arts. It is a firm favourite with travellers. (B)
Jaipur, Rajasthan’s capital, is an enthralling historical city and the gateway to India’s most flamboyant state. The city’s colourful, chaotic streets ebb and flow with a heady brew of old and new. Careering buses dodge dawdling camels and leisurely cycle-rickshaws frustrate swarms of motorbikes. Visit the Amber Fort, the Hawa Mahal or the ‘Palace of the Winds’, the Royal City Palace and discover the extravagance of a Bollywood blockbuster, with all the Hollywood-style elements of action, romance, drama and music at the spectacular Raj Mandir Cinema.
