Itinerary

Depart from the UK today to begin your journey.

Today you will arrive in Delhi and transfer to your comfortable hotel. There’s time to freshen up before this afternoon’s included sightseeing in New Delhi.


This spacious, imperial city was created by the British in 1911. Drive through elegant boulevards and lush green parks where the iconic India Gate and imposing Parliament House are both reminders of a colonial past. Step back in time at the ancient Qutub Minar, a soaring tower of sandstone, and visit Humayun’s Tomb, both UNESCO-listed sites.

A morning included sightseeing tour will introduce you to the 17th century walled city of Old Delhi. Delve into a maze of crowded narrow streets and thronging markets on a cycle rickshaw, stroll through the fabled street bazaar of vibrant Chandni Chowk, admiring the spectacular Red Fort en route. Witness the impressive marble domes of Jama Masjid Mosque and visit Raj Ghat, the simple memorial to Mahatma Gandhi.


Later you will drive to Jaipur for an overnight stay. Sandstone buildings tinged with pink and ochre and set amongst barren hills will greet you as you arrive in the capital of Rajasthan.

This morning you’ll take a short drive to the marvellous Amber Fort, a 17th century stronghold that commands a hilltop setting high above the parched desert and surrounding valley.


Step inside and visit the eerie Temple of Kali, the jewel-like Palace of Mirrors and experience the enchanting Hall of Pleasures.


In the afternoon, explore the famous ‘Pink City’ of Jaipur on an included city tour. All the buildings here were to be painted pink by Maharaja’s decree. Explore the commanding City Palace, still the official residence of the Maharaja and discover Mughal treasures in the museum. Linger at the elaborate facade of the Palace of the Winds, from where ladies of the court could watch unseen, and seek out colourful ceramics and textiles in the bustling markets of the old town.


This evening, you could choose to enjoy a cooking demonstration at a local home, with dinner included.

Today you will take a drive to Bharatpur, stopping en route at Abhaneri’s step well, an ancient and ingenious system of drains, wells and tanks constructed to provide a water supply during dry periods.


After lunch at your hotel, you’ll spend the afternoon visiting the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary by rickshaw. Look out for fascinating water birds and waterside birds, as well as sambar and chital deer, boar and nilgai – the largest Asian antelope.

This morning you’ll travel to Agra, stopping at the deserted city of Fatehpur Sikri en route. Stroll through the pink and red sandstone pavilions and palaces built by an emperor in 1569 to celebrate the birth of his son.


In the afternoon, enjoy a visit to the red sandstone Agra Fort where Shah Jahan was imprisoned by his son. Wander through the chambers and capture glimpses 
of the shimmering white Taj Mahal, framed by a perfect archway.

Today you’ll have an early start for one of the highlights of your holiday – an included dawn visit to the world-famous Taj Mahal. You will travel to the banks of the Yamuna River where this magnificent mausoleum built by the Emperor Shah Jahan for his wife is located. Nothing prepares you for the reality of this glorious building, especially as the sun rises and the light is reflecting on the marble in shades of rose and gold. Set in classical gardens with shimmering mirror pools, its white walls inlaid with semi-precious stones are truly breathtaking and you’ll soon understand why 20,000 men took 20 years to complete the world’s most extravagant and beautiful expression of one man’s love of a woman. You’ll then drive to Delhi to enjoy the evening at your own pace.

After breakfast you’ll transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK.

Optional Excursions

Experience even more of your destination by adding one or more optional excursions to your holiday before you set off. Right now is the perfect opportunity to do that – with everything booked and paid for you’ll have even more to get excited about and all you’ll need to think about while you’re away is having a great time.

By the way - look out for ‘Optional Excursion Packages’. For some holidays we’ve grouped a selection of excursions into a package which means you can make a saving when you book in advance.
