This tour takes you to the best cultural sites along with the must do visit to the iconic Taj Mahal and the royal city of Jaipur. This is one of the most popular golden triangle tours in the world.
We start with Delhi, India's capital city, where we take you for a tour of the magnificent Mughal past, the monuments and architectural gems of British and modern India. The tour will include visits to the glorious Red fort, Qutab Minar, Asia's largest mosque-The Jama Masjid, Lutyen's Delhi of the British Raj and modern India's architectural marvels like the Bahai temple.
Our next destination is the walled heritage city of Jaipur. With its enchanting old bazaars, havelis, forts and pink hued buildings, it is full of romance and royal charm. There is so much to see in Jaipur that the best way to explore it is being on the roads, soaking up the sights and sounds of this bustling city. Visiting the old heritage sights like City Palace, Hawa Mahal and various havelis and old palaces that have now been converted into luxury hotels, gives you a glimpse of its erstwhile grandeur. The stunning Amber Fort Palace established in 1592 by Man Singh I is a sight to behold. The narrow lanes of the charming bazaars in the walled city are full of colour and beckon you to buy handcrafted souvenirs, paintings, textiles, blue pottery, traditional jewellery, bangles etc. Every lane is a veritable treasure of some artistry, tie and dye art, gem cutting and polishing, leather work, bangle making. You can see it all here.
We also take you to a very interesting resort away from the city where the ambience transports you to a traditional Rajasthani village where you can enjoy a traditional meal, local folk dance and music performances, puppet shows etc.
After the hustle bustle of a city, we take you to Agra. A trip to India seems incomplete without a visit to the most iconic manmade structure in the world, the Taj Mahal, where we shall take you next. Built by Shah Jahan as the symbol for undying love for his wife Mumtaz Mahal, the sight of the white marble structure does take your breath away. We also take you to Fatehpur Sikri, the new imperial capital built in the name of Sufi saint Salim Chishti who had given the childless Emperor Akbar the blessing to have sons. An architectural and creative marvel, this structure still inspires awe.
