Package Itinerary

Arriving Delhi

Your arrival at Delhi is followed by getting acquainted with the entire tour plan with the assistance of our representatives. They will escort you to the car and will also be responsible for handing over the documents to you. This would be followed by the overnight stay at the hotel.

Delhi City Sightseeing Tour

After breakfast, our tour of New Delhi begins, visiting cultural heritages, Humayun’s Tomb (1586), the Qutub Minar 72 meters high and one of the most perfectly built towers in the Persian era, the Iron Pillar which has survived the vagaries of weather for over 1500 years. We then continue to a drive through Embassy area, the Government buildings (1921-1930) and Connaught Place, the hub and prime shopping district of the capital. We then head to India Gate.

 

Next in league, we enter into the walled gates of Old city with visits to the Jamma Mosque (1650) and drive through the fabled area of Chandni Chowk (aptly translates to Moonlight Square) where the multitude of shoppers and vendors are a signature site depicting the area. Next is the visit to the cremation grounds of the founder of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi and thereafter Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi, the Raj Ghat.

 

The most bracing part of this tour would be riding pillion on cycle rickshaws which are 3-wheeled cycles with a sofa seat at the back. The Ricksha-walla (Rickshaw driver) sits on a small cushion in the front and two passengers on the sofa seat behind. This is one of the classic ways to explore the snaking streets of Old city of Delhi  in its utmost honesty. Stay Overnight at hotel. 

Delhi / Jaipur (280 Kms) (06 Hrs Drive)

Breakfast at hotel. Later on check-out from the hotel and drive to Jaipur. Arrive Jaipur and check-in at hotel. Rest of the day free to explore the multitude of shopping options of Jaipur along with our driver. Block-printing being a symbol of Jaipur we will be exploring the process from start to finish in some of the popular stores here. The opportunity also exists here to tailor make outfits to your design and size.

 

We also explore one of the chief and hard to miss attractions of Jaipur - its jewelry, which offers a variety that ranges from chunky tribal jewelry to enameled gold to modern diamond jewelry. Kundan (art of stone setting) and enamel jewelry has been a specialty of Rajasthan, particularly that of Jaipur. The stones are embossed into decorative shapes & patterns and embellished with delicate enamel ornamentation in the champeve (raised field) technique. Jaipur is well known for its gold and silver enameling. Colorful bangles made of lac and set with semiprecious stones make an inexpensive buy. The finesse of the craftsmen to embed the hundreds of stones into the lac is unmatchable. The skilled gem-cutters of Jaipur carve enchanting little animals and birds from rock, crystal, jade, smoky topaz and amethyst. Intaglio beads & buttons and crystal scent bottles are also available. Overnight at Hotel.

After breakfast, we visit Amber Fort, the former capital of the regal Jaipur. The dramatic Rajput grandeur of this hilltop fortress-palace 11 km north of Jaipur boasts of the extravagant lifestyle of the Rajputana clans. Mounted on the dry Aravali hills and fenced by fortified battlements, the palace straddles two sepia-hued tundra hills overlooking Maota Lake, and its sprawling crenellated walls lattice the surrounding hills.

 

We will ride up to this hilltop palace on a majestic, caparisoned, painted elephant, passing through the ancient main gate where Maharajas of Jaipur have entered for four hundred years just to get the taste of their glorious past. Our guide will elaborate on the history of this architectural masterpiece with its mirror-studded alcoves, dazzling mosaics and water-cooled swings that delight today's visitors as they did their former royal residents.

 

We shall visit the Hawa Mahal or Palace of the Winds, a five-storied structure of pink sandstone with semi-octagonal and delicately honeycombed windows overlooking the main street of the old city. It was built in 1799 so that veiled royal women could peer down unseen by the world through its 593 stone screens.

 

Later in the afternoon, we proceed on a tour of the City Palace & Observatory. The City Palace in the heart of the old city is a blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture. The palace lies in the heart of the city and occupies the entire central grid. The fortified wall has seven gates and was built for protection from invading armies and animals that lived in jungles, which surrounded the wall that time. Next, we visit the Solar Observatory - an astronomical treasure house, with solar device that give accurate predictions till date. Overnight at Hotel.

Jaipur / Fatehpur Sikri / Agra (245 Kms) (05 Hrs Drive)

After breakfast, we head to our final destination, Agra stopping at deserted capital city of Fatehpur Sikri. This abandoned capital of the Mughals is a perfectly preserved city at the height of the empire's splendour. The city dissected into religious and secular parts has interesting well-sculpted buildings. From here we continue riding to Agra.

 

Arrive Agra & check-in at hotel. Evening, we will visit to Mehtab Bagh. The Moonlight Garden was an extension of the Taj Mahal Garden - on the other side of the river. In 1652 Aurangzeb wrote to his father telling of a visit to 'the blessed tomb' and commenting that 'the Mahtab Garden was completely inundated and has lost its charm, but soon it will regain its verdancy. The octagonal pool and the pavilion around it are in splendid condition.' The Mahtab Bagh was lost under the mud but re-excavated in the 1990s. Originally, the garden was planted with fragrant flowers and used in the cool of the night as a place from which to view the Taj Mahal reflected in the octagonal pool and in the river. Overnight at Hotel.

Agra / Delhi (Departure)

We finally bring you to the home of the biggest epitome of love that the world bows before, Agra- The city of the Taj Mahal. The unparalleled glory and beauty of the building surpasses beyond all human imaginations. At sunrise we visit one of the greatest sights of one's lifetime - Taj Mahal. A dawn visit to the fabled Taj Mahal to witness the mystical ambience caused by the reflections of the changing colours of the rising Sun on this brilliant white marble building. Later we return back to our hotel for breakfast.

After breakfast, we ride to the magnanimous Agra Fort. The elegant buildings inside reflect an interesting synthesis of Hindu and Central Asian architectural styles. Built by Emperor Akbar, the maze of the courtyards, mosques & private chambers of the fort, all call for the story of the Mughal Empire

In the afternoon, we will drive to Delhi. Upon arrival, transfer to the International airport to board your onward flight.
