Luxury India Golden Triangle

Duration
6 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,325

This luxurious introduction to India includes the excitement of Old and New Delhi, the Taj Mahal, and the rose city of Jaipur. An ideal India tour for a first timer, or a return visitor seeking a finer experience.


This 6-day trip gives an excellent overview of the classic Golden Triangle, while allowing guests to experience some of India’s most luxurious and iconic properties.

Start in the sensory overload that is Delhi. Spend your first day acclimatising, then dive into the sights of Old Delhi on day two, visiting the Raj Ghat, the Red Fort, one of India’s largest mosques, and Gandhi’s memorial site. Then explore New Delhi at its finest, including Humayun’s Tomb and the Qutab Minar. You’ll also enjoy plenty of time to explore on your own before departing for Agra the next morning.

Hostesses welcome you aboard India’s fastest train, bound for Agra, home to the world’s greatest monument to love, the Taj Mahal. Spend a good length of time exploring this beautiful mausoleum, then go on to the Agra Fort. The Fort has served time as a prison, a palace, and a military structure, and now stands as the other great ‘must see’ building in Agra. Return to Delhi in the evening.

Make your way to India’s first ‘planned’ city, Jaipur, for two days exploring its incredible terracotta pink architecture. You’ll have some time to see its beauty on your own, but a full day tour also takes you to many of the highlights, including the Amber Fort, the City Palace and Museum, and the Jantar Mantar Observatory. Of course, no tour would be complete without a photo stop at the Hawa Mahal, better known as the Palace of Winds, where women of the royal court could enjoy street festivals in privacy and comfort. End your day browsing the local bazaars before spending the evening at leisure.

Return to Delhi for your departing flight.

Day 3

Delhi to Agra to Delhi

After breakfast at your hotel this morning you will be transferred to Delhi's train station, where you will board the Gatimaan Express to Agra. Allow hostesses to greet you with roses and soft music as you board India's fastest train. Upon arrival to Agra, you will proceed to visit one of the world's most recognizable buildings, the Taj Mahal. Once you have finished exploring the mausoleum, you will visit the Agra Fort. Although often overshadowed by the Taj Mahal, this fortification is not a site to be missed. It has been a military structure, a palace, and even a prison at one point. Nevertheless, the detailed and intricate design of the red-sandstone fortress is a must-see for all who visit the city. You will be transferred back to Agra's train station where you will once again board the Gatimaan Express - this time returning to Delhi. Your transfer will return you to your hotel, and you will have the rest of the evening at leisure.

Day 4

Delhi to Jaipur

In the morning you will continue your onward journey to Jaipur. Also known as the "Pink City", Jaipur was built in the 18th century as India's first "planned" city. Originally, the buildings were painted red to imitate the red-sandstone architecture of other cities built under the Mughal Empire, but they were repainted terracotta pink in the late 1800s to welcome the Prince of Wales. Today, Jaipur is filled with historical forts, temples, palaces, and gardens that make it a breathtaking city to visit. Upon arrival, you will be checked into your hotel. Get settled and enjoy the rest of your day at leisure.
