Delhi (international flights can be arranged)
Upon arrival at the airport in Delhi, you will be met by our representative, assisted through formalities and transferred to your hotel.
After breakfast, discover both old and new Delhi in all its majesty with history that goes back centuries. You will see the Red Fort, the most opulent Fort and Palace of the Mughal Empire. Also visit Raj Ghat, the memorial site of the Mahatma Gandhi; Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India; and Chandni Chowk, the bustling and colourful market of the old city. Continue to New Delhi. Visit two monuments from Delhi’s past – Humayun’s Tomb and Qutub Minar. View the Lotus Bahai Temple. Your drive takes you along the ceremonial avenue, Rajpath, past the imposing India Gate, Parliament House and the Presidential residence. Return to your hotel for overnight. (B)
After breakfast, depart for the medieval city of Agra. Visit Sikandra, the mausoleum of Emperor Akbar. Proceed onto the main attraction of Agra, the world-renowned Taj Mahal – a “wonder of the world” – beautifully crafted with white marble. It was built under Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favorite wife in 1630 to enshrine her mortal remains. Proceed to view one of the most spectacular Forts of the Mughal Heritage, the Agra Fort. An important fort in India and an UNESCO World Heritage site. Continue for overnight at your hotel in Agra. (B)
Start your drive in the morning towards Jaipur, the famed Pink City of India aptly named after the pink coloured buildings. En route, visit Fatehpur Sikri, an abandoned capital from the Mughal Empire. Akbar built this city to celebrate the birth of his son and future heir to the throne, Emperor Jahangir. Fatehpur Sikri is one of his masterworks. Sadly, it served as the capital for little over a decade, eventually abandoned for lack of accessible water. Arrive to the old city of Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan. Overnight at your hotel in Jaipur. (B)
After breakfast, visit the Amber Fort. Ascend the hill to the fort by jeep or on the back of an elephant (if available) and admire views of Jaipur’s original city walls and the Maotha Lake below. Continue to visit a local Rajasthan textile and handicrafts market. In the afternoon, tour Jaipur, including visits to the observatory of Maharaja Jaisingh and the museum at the Maharaja City Palace. Return to your hotel for overnight. (B)
Depart Jaipur in the morning for Delhi. Arrive in Delhi. Transfer to the airport for your flight or extend your tour.
