Itinerary

Welcome to the capital of India, Delhi. A chaotic medley of bazaars, temples, mosques and colonial buildings, Delhi is an ideal place to kick-start this adventure. Weave through the cars, rickshaws and bullock carts to experience fast-paced city life. Stroll through the exuberant alleyways of Old Delhi and see the magnificent Jama Masjid. Visit a local Sikh temple to learn a little about this fascinating religion.
Travel by train to Agra. This former Mughal capital is home to some impressive buildings, including the romantic Taj Mahal of Agra and massive Red Fort that dominates the skyline. Admire the Taj Mahal's intricate carvings then visit the fort - a maze of halls, mosques, chambers and gardens.
Explore India's deserted palaces and pavilions of the Mughal kingdom in Fatehpur Sikri, a perfectly preserved ghost town. Visit a village and learn about life in rural India and enjoy an evening of traditional music and food during a heritage stay in a palace.
The gem of Rajasthan, Jaipur's pink sandstone 'Palace of Winds' and the lively streets make the city a colourful destination. This friendly town is brimming with bazaars full of jewellery, textiles and local art. If there's time, be sure to catch the latest Bollywood blockbuster in the Art Deco splendour of the Raj Mandir Cinema.
Search for textiles or folk art in the Jaipur bazaars before returning to Delhi for a final taste of the capital. Perhaps feast on a traditional aloo gobi or seek out a range of sweet treats from a food stall - the perfect way to end this tour of India's Golden Triangle.
