Tour Overview

Day 1

Arrive Delhi

Welcome to India! On arrival at Delhi Airport, you will be greeted by our guide in the arrival hall, who will escort you to your hotel and assist you in check-in. Later, embark on a sightseeing tour of Delhi. Begin with exploring the Old City of Delhi, where Mughal art and architecture still survive in the narrow lanes lined with havelis, mosques and food stalls serving authentic Mughlai food, an integral part of Indian cuisine. Old Delhi tourist places include Red Fort, Jama Masjid, Chandni Chowk Raj Ghat, and Mahatma Gandhi's cremation site. Also visit Humayun’s Tomb, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first garden-tomb in India which was the inspiration for the Taj Mahal. Later, discover Imperial New Delhi showcasing spacious, tree-lined boulevards and noteworthy buildings. Notable attractions include Connaught Place (CP), the Presidential Palace and India Gate. Overnight, stay at hotel.
Day 2

Delhi - Jaipur

After breakfast, check-out from hotel and drive to Jaipur, 275 km (approximately six hours) from Delhi. Founded by Maharaja Jai Singh II in the year 1727, Jaipur is the first planned city of India. The city was built according to Indian Vastu Shastra (rules and principles of architecture). Jaipur is famously called the “Pink City” as the city was painted pink to commemorate the visit of the Prince of Wales in 1876. Many of its avenues even today remain painted in pink, giving the city a distinctive appearance. On arrival in Jaipur, check-in at hotel and the day is at leisure. In the evening, visit Chokhi Dhani. This is a unique village resort showcasing the traditional lifestyle of Rajasthan. Here, savour authentic Rajasthani cuisine, including the famous Indian platter of Daal Bhati Churma. Overnight, stay at hotel.
Day 3

Jaipur

Start the day with an excursion to the Amer Fort. Perched on a hill in the suburbs of Jaipur, the fort was once the capital of Rajasthan. Former residence of Rajput Maharajas, the fort is notable for its grand architecture showcasing Hindu style of art. Later, explore the City Palace complex that is comprised of two palaces, Chandra Mahal and Mubarak Mahal, a museum, a vast array of courtyards, gardens and buildings. The palace is a blend of the Shilpa Shastra of Indian architecture with Rajput, Mughal and European styles. Diwan-I-Aam (Hall of Public Audience), Bhaggi Khana (a museum), Pitam Niwaa gate and Peacock Gate are a must-see. Other places to visit include Hawa Mahal (Palace of Wind), Jal Mahal (Water Palace), and Jantar Mantar (an observatory). Make sure to spend some time in the charming markets of the Old City. Overnight, stay at hotel.
Day 4

Jaipur - Fatehpur Sikri - Agra

Today drive to Agra, 240 km (approximately five hours) away, the home of the icon of eternal love, Taj Mahal. En route, visit Fatehpur Sikri. It's a UNESCO World Heritage Site showcasing the grandeur of Mughal architecture and well worth the time. On arrival in Agra, check-in at hotel and embark on a city tour. This evening, visit the magnificent Taj Mahal, described by poets as “a teardrop on the cheek of eternity”. The monument was built as a mausoleum by Shah Jahan in the memory of his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. When included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983, it was described as "the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world's heritage". The ivory-white marble tomb surrounded by picturesque gardens attracts millions visitors all year round. Overnight, stay at hotel.
Day 5

Agra - Sikandra - Delhi

After breakfast, check-out from hotel and drive to Delhi, 240 km (approximately four hours) away. Before you leave the city, visit the mighty Agra Fort – a World UNESCO Heritage Site. En route, stop at Sikandra to visit the Tomb of Akbar the Great. The tomb of the great emperor is an architectural marvel showcasing the splendid Mughal architectural style. Construction of the tomb was commenced by Akbar himself and was completed after his death by his son, Jahangir. The four white marble minarets at entrance of the tomb from the South gate are similar to those of the Taj Mahal. On arrival in Delhi, check-in at hotel and the rest of the day is at leisure. Overnight, stay at hotel.
