Day 1

Arrive Delhi

Arrive in Delhi. You will be met by a representative in the arrival zone once you have exited baggage claim. You will then be transferred to your hotel. Delhi, India’s capital and political hub is an ancient city that has something for everyone. Settled seven times over the centuries, this city has grown in a way that reflects its past, while retaining its cosmopolitan flavour. Delhi is India’s showcase, be it the architecture, religion, shopping or the culture - everything is available here, and there is plenty to be discovered. It is a city of contrast, where an elephant can overtake vehicles on the street, where colonial mansions stand next to squatter slums, and where cows are revered, but musicians are labeled 'untouchable'. The city's pace is chaotic, yet fairly relaxed, and makes it ideal for exploring. During your trip, you will definitely be confronted with some strange and exotic sights. Remainder of the day free. Overnight at the hotel.

Day 2


Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the hotel before meeting your guide in the hotel lobby. Today, you will visit, in your included full day tour of old and new Delhi, the Jama Masjid - the largest mosque in India. Drive past the magnificent Red Fort - a marvel to look at, built out of red sandstone, situated on the banks of River Yamuna; the Red Fort was constructed by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. Next visit Raj Ghat, Mahatma Gandhi’s memorial. Old Delhi contains a charming selection of colorful bazaars and narrow winding alleys. In the afternoon you continue your tour in New Delhi, the city that was created to reflect the might of the British Empire. New Delhi consists of tree-lined avenues, spacious parks and somber government buildings. The 12th century Qutab Minar is gracefully hand-carved for its entire height of 234 feet. Visit the mausoleum of emperor Humayun - a forerunner of the Mughal style of architecture. Drive past the India Gate, a World War I memorial, the Presidential Palace, Parliament House and the Secretariat buildings - an interesting blend of the Victorian and 20th century architecture. Overnight at the hotel.

Delhi - Agra

After breakfast, drive to Agra (4 ½ hours). On arrival in Agra, check-in to your hotel. Agra is known all over the world due to the fabulous Taj Mahal and is situated on the right bank of the river Yamuna. Agra is a city with a glorious past and has the distinction of being the capital of various ruling dynasties. Included afternoon visit the Agra Fort. This fort was started by Emperor Akbar in 1565. The high red stone monument stretches for around 2½ kms. The palace is a notable for its smooth blending of Hindu and central Asian architectural styles. Later proceed to the included visit of the magnificent Taj Mahal at sunset (closed on fridays). Built by Emperor Shah Jahan in memory to his favorite wife Mumtaz Mahal, this is the ultimate tribute to love ever transcribed in architecture. Overnight at the hotel.

Day 4

Agra - Jaipur

After breakfast drive to Jaipur, including a visit to Fatehpur Sikri en route. Fatehpur Sikri is situated about 40 kms/1 hr from Agra. This was the erstwhile capital of the great Mughal ruler - Emperor Akbar. This magnificent fort palace had to be abandoned after just 15 years of occupation due to lack of potable water.

After your visit to Fatehpur Sikri you continue your drive to Jaipur. On arrival in Jaipur you will be checked into your hotel.

Jaipur is an essential stop in any tour of Rajasthan.The old walled section of the city is known as the Pink City; it was painted red (a lucky color in Hindu culture) to welcome England’s Prince Alfred in 1853 and the fading old buildings retain their hue. Jaipur is one of India’s newer cities, founded in 1727, and was the creation of Jai Singh II, the Maharaja of the Kuchwaha Rajputs, who decided when Mogul power was on the decline to move from his outmoded hillside fortress at Amber to establish a new capital on the plains further south.

The Pink City was built in only eight years. Much of it was designed by Jai Singh himself, including the City Palace and the Jantar Mantar, a fascinating astronomical observatory with massive instruments used to predict the monsoon and identify the movements of the stars. Most impressive is a gigantic sundial that is accurate to the nearest two minutes. All seven gates into the old city remain, one of which leads into Johari Bazaar.

Overnight at Hotel

Day 5


After breakfast at the hotel, proceed on your included sightseeing tour of the Amber Fort, which is a classic Rajasthani Fort Palace, with its rugged, time-ravaged walls and fascinating palaces inside. Visit the enchanting palaces and gardens inside the fort palace to complete your tour. On your way back, stop at Hawa Mahal - Palace of Winds for a brief stop for photographs and as it is in the heart of Jaipur’s shopping district, to buy souvenirs. Afternoon we continue with your included tour to the City Palace, the former residence of the royal family, a part of which is converted into a museum. Built in the style of a fortified campus, the palace covers almost one-seventh in area of the old city. One of the major attractions in the museum is the Armory Museum housing an impressive array of weaponry. Later visit the Jantar Mantar, which is the largest stone and marble crafted observatory in the world. The observatory has 17 large instruments, many of them still in working condition. The remainder of the day is free to tour the Pink city on your own. The car remains at your disposal. Jaipur is a shopper’s paradise especially for clothes and precious and semi precious jewels.
