Day 01 / Arrival Delhi
Arrive Delhi, Meet and assist upon arrival in Delhi and transfer to your hotel in Delhi. Night stay in Delhi.

Day 02: Delhi
After breakfast, proceed for sightseeing tour of Old & New Delhi:

OLD DELHI - A sight-seeing tour of Old Delhi would entail visiting the Raj Ghat - the memorial site where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated; Jama Masjid - the largest mosque in India.

The heart of Old Delhi lies in the area around Chandni Chowk, one of the oldest market areas in India and certainly one of the busiest.
To explore this area fully would take days, but a great way to get around and experience the vibrant atmosphere and array of sounds and sights on display is by traditional cycle-rickshaw.

NEW DELHI - An extensive sightseeing tour of New Delhi would include a visit to the Humayun's Tomb, the Qutub Minar, a drive along the ceremonial avenue - Rajpath, past the imposing India Gate, Parliament House, the President's Residence and would end with a drive through the Diplomatic Enclave.

Evening witness the Sound and light show at the Red Fort or ‘Lal Quilla' as the fort is popularly known as, situated in Delhi depicts the Mughal architectural brilliance. The 17th century historical events come alive in the evenings at the fort with the sound and lights of the Son-Et-Lumiere. The Red Fort can be entered from both the Lahore and the Delhi gates. The Lahore gate being the principal gate connects the Red Fort and the Chatta Chawk Bazaar beaming with life (except monday). Night stay in Delhi.

Day 03: Delhi / Agra (205 Kms) (04 Hrs Drive)
After breakfast, drive to Agra

Upon arrival in Agra, check into your hotel

Later visit the Agra fort - the rusty and majestic red-sandstone fort of Agra stands on the banks of the river Yamuna and the construction was started by Emperor Akbar in 1566.

At the Diwan-I-Am (hall of public audience), a colonnaded hall of red-sandstone with a throne alcove of inlaid marble at the back, the Emperor heard public petitions. At the Diwan-I-Khas (hall of private audience) where marble pavilions with floral inlays lend an ethereal ambience, the Emperor sat on his gem-studded Peacock Throne and met foreign ambassadors and rulers of friendly kingdoms.

After Agra Fort, the monument that is most important in Agra is the Tomb of Itmad-ud-Daulah or "Baby Taj" as it is called sometimes. A highly ornate edifice, this mausoleum is considered as the imminent precursor of the Taj Mahal as far as elaborate carvings and inlay work are concerned. Though the structure does not have much to offer architecturally, it makes a clear departure from the earlier Mughal tombs built during the period and is softer and with many inlay carvings. Night stay in Agra.

Day 04: Agra / Fatehpur Sikri / Jaipur (245 Kms) (05 Hrs Drive)
Morning, visit Taj Mahal - one of the seven wonders of the world surely the most extravagant expression of love ever created. 20,000 men laboured for over 17 years to build this memorial to Shah Jahan's beloved wife. The Taj is at its most alluring in the relative quiet of early morning, shrouded in mists and bathed with a soft red glow. As its vast marble surfaces fall into shadow or reflect the sun, its colour changes, from soft grey and yellow to pearly cream and dazzling white; it's well worth visiting at different times. This play of light is an important decorative device, symbolically implying the presence of Allah, who is never represented in anthropomorphic form.

Also, enjoy the Tonga Ride to the most beautiful monument in the world

After breakfast, drive to Jaipur, en route visit Fatehpur Sikri -a perfectly preserved red sandstone "ghost town" which was the estranged capital of Mughal emperor Akbar, built in 1569 and deserted when its water supply failed.

Also, visit drive to Abhaneri village, about 95 kms from Jaipur on the Jaipur-Agra Road. A detour is well merited for its amazing stepwell or 'baoris' and Harshat Mata Temple.

Step wells are the unique concept of India. These big tanks were used as cool places of resort and water reservoir in parched days. It was a ritual to wash hands and feet before visiting the temple. Adjoining the Chand Baori, there is a temple, dedicated to Harshat Mata. Raised during the 10th century, the wrecks of the temple still boast of the architectural and sculptural styles of ancient India.

From here, continue drive to Jaipur - the fabled "pink city" of the desert named after Jai Singh, the former Maharaja of Jaipur. This is the only city in the world symbolizing the nine divisions of the universe through the nine rectangular sectors subdividing it. The palaces and forts of the yesteryears, which were witnesses to the royal processions and splendors are now living monuments.

Upon arrival, check into your hotel. Night stay in Jaipur.
