Itinerary

Welcome to Delhi, a magical city of surprising contrasts. Get to know this mammoth metropolis on a guided sightseeing tour of Old and New Delhi. Visit the Jami Masjid, Delhi’s largest mosque, then ply your way through the crowds and down to the impressive Red Fort. Marvel at New Delhi's wide boulevards and imposing buildings and visit Parliament House, President House and India Gate.
Witness the sunrise bathe the Taj Mahal in pink hues. Marvel at the ornate beauty of this exquisite monument to love decorated with semi-precious stones. Head just outside Agra to visit the rose-coloured Fatehpur Sikri.
Explore Ranthambhore National Park, a real-life 'Jungle Book' that is home to historical ruins as well as wildlife, including the Bengal tiger, the jungle cat, crocodiles and three types of antelope – nilgai, sambar and chital.
Glimpse a complete cross-section of Indian life on a train ride to the ‘Pink City’ of Jaipur, where camels and bullock-carts fill the streets and monkeys live in the city walls. Visit the City Palace, once the home of the maharaja, before seeing the 18th-century Jantar Mantar, an astronomical observatory built by the city’s founder, Jai Singh.
Drive through the princely state of Rajasthan and catch glimpses of life in the most colourful of India’s regions. See sari-clad women carrying terracotta pots of water and, if time allows, stop for a game of cricket with the locals.
Return to Delhi. Perhaps stop by Ghandi’s house, chase a bargain in the shops and markets around Connaught Place or say farewell to India with a hearty local meal.
