Your Itinerary

HIDE FULL ITINERARY

DAY 1 UK/Delhi

You'll depart on your scheduled flight to Delhi today.

Please note that on this tour if you book the “make your own way” option please ensure you are at the first hotel for 12 midday local time.

DAY 2 Delhi

​On arrival in Delhi we will transfer you to your hotel. After time to settle in, we're off on a half-day sightseeing tour. You'll see UNESCO-listed highlights including the exquisite Humayun's Tomb and the ancient Qutub Minar, a soaring sandstone tower. We're then going to drive along the ceremonial avenue, Rajpath, and past the imposing India Gate and Parliament House – two grand reminders of the city's colonial past.

DAY 3 Agra

A great way to start your day is with a morning cycle rickshaw ride through the 17th century walled city of Old Delhi. As we go we'll delve into its maze of crowded streets and thronging markets, and see the spectacular exterior of the Red Fort. Next, we'll explore by foot as we take a stroll through the fabled street bazaar, Chandni Chowk, and admire the impressive marble domes of Jama Masjid Mosque. We'll also visit Gandhi Smriti Museum, the location where Gandhi spent the last 144 days of his life and the place of his assassination. Our day concludes with a drive to Agra.

DAY 4 Agra

Get ready to experience one of the highlights of your holiday today – a dawn visit to the incredible Taj Mahal. This magnificent mausoleum, built by the Emperor Shah Jahan for his wife Mumtaz, is one of the world's most glorious sights. We'll watch in awe as the sun rises over its white marble walls which are inlaid with semi-precious stones. We'll also head to nearby Mehtab Bagh, a centuries-old garden complex, for a fabulous view of this iconic masterpiece from the other side of the Yamuna River. Our next stop is at the red-sandstone Agra Fort, where Shah Jahan was imprisoned by his son, then we'll see the Itmad ud Daulah tomb. This was the first monument in India to be built entirely from marble and is also known as the 'Baby Taj'. If you would like to enjoy an evening out, there's the option to watch a performance of Mohabbat the Taj, about Emperor Shah Jahan and his wife. Featuring colourful costumes, enchanting songs and energetic dancing, this is the perfect end to our day.  Please note: The show is not available on May to July departures.

DAY 5 Ranthambore

Today we're going to travel by train, quite an experience in India, but before we reach the station we'll visit the deserted city of Fatehpur Sikri. At the railway station, stop to take in the vibrant atmosphere as you join the throng of travellers. You'll see vendors selling spicy samosas and small boys serving chai from huge silver kettles as you board the train. Once on board, sit back and enjoy the ever-changing scenery with your fellow travellers as you are taken to Ranthambore.

DAY 6 Ranthambore

A thrilling day lies ahead, with not just one but two safaris in Ranthambore National Park, said to be the best game reserve in India. On morning and afternoon game drives we'll make our way through thick forest, where pretty waterfalls provide the perfect habitat for more than 300 species of birds. Our knowledgeable Local Guide will help you to spot other residents of the park, including crocodile, hyena, jackal and more. Keep your fingers crossed for a sighting of the elusive tiger, or the even rarer leopard too.

DAY 7 Talabgoan

Today we journey by road to our next hotel, which is the 200-year-old Talabgaon Castle, a beautifully restored fort offering us a truly unique experience. You're free to relax and do just as you wish on arrival. Perhaps you'll sit in the lovely gardens with a cool drink, or maybe a dip in the swimming pool will prove too tempting to resist.  Later, we're going to get together to enjoy a barbecue dinner, with entertainment in the shape of a traditional dance performance.

DAY 8 Jaipur

Today we've the famous 'Pink City' of Jaipur in our sights, which we'll reach by road. Views of sandstone buildings tinged with pink and ochre set amongst barren hills will greet us on arrival in the capital of Rajasthan. We'll get our bearings with an afternoon guided tour, which includes the commanding City Palace and the Mughal treasures in its museum. We'll also see the elaborate facade of the Palace of the Winds, from where ladies of the court could watch unseen. Before we head to our hotel, there will be time to browse the colourful ceramics and textiles in the Old Town's bustling markets.

DAY 9 Delhi

Your day begins with a short drive to the marvellous Amber Fort, a 17th century stronghold which sits on a hilltop overlooking the desert. We'll step inside to see the eerie Temple of Kali, the jewel-like Palace of Mirrors and the enchanting Hall of Pleasures. Later, we return to Delhi by road.

DAY 10 Delhi/UK

This morning we'll transfer you to the airport for your return flight to the UK. As you are travelling westwards, you will arrive later the same day.

Optional Shimla add-on

Extend your holiday with our optional Shimla add-on and discover this fascinating region located in the foothills of the Himalayas.

DAY 10 DELHI TO SHIMLA
Early this morning you’ll transfer to Delhi railway station to board the Shatabdi Express train to Kalka, where you'll then take the narrow gauge railway to Shimla. You'll then transfer to your hotel and check in.

DAY 11 SHIMLA
This morning you'll enjoy breakfast at the hotel before a half day city tour of Shimla. This city boasts the natural beauty of green grasslands, snow-capped peaks and forests. It retains its colonial heritage with grand old buildings, charming iron lamp posts and British street names. Here youll visit the Temple of Tara Devi, a famous goddess in Tibetan Buddhism. Goddess Tara is thought to be one of the nine sisters of Goddess Durga. The temple's history dates back to more than 250 years ago. It is believed that Goddess Tara was brought from the eastern state of Bengal by a King from the Sen Dynasty and to honour this in later years, Raja Bhupendra Sen created this temple with a wooden idol of Tara Devi. The Temple is located at the top of a hill in Shimla surrounded by the lush green environment, creating a peaceful atmosphere. The breathtaking views of the countryside combined with the backdrop of the Himalayas is a must-see. The afternoon will be at your leisure to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

Later, you can explore the village market and visit a local family to learn a little about village life in Shimla. After lunch youll visit Jakhu Temple, the highest point in Shimla. Jakhu Temple is Shimla’s most famous temple and is dedicated to the monkey god, Hanuman. Nearby a 33 metre-high pink statue of Hanuman looms above the treetops and is visible from most of Shimla.




DAY 13 CHANIGARH
After breakfast we’ll drive down to Chandigarh (approximately 3-4 hours). Chandigarh is the joint capital of Punjab and Haryana and the first city of independent India.

Youll visit the white-domed temple of Goddess Chandi Devi that stands on the slope of a hill in the north-east of Chandigarh and youll also see the unique sculptures of the famous Rock Garden open-air art exhibition. Rocks as well as urban waste such as china and bangles are used to create fascinating sculptures of palaces, soldiers, animals, temples and scenes of village life. The Rock Garden is now a heritage site attracting artists from all over the world. You will have the opportunity to explore the Rock Garden at your own pace.
