Delhi: Welcome to Incredible India!
On arrival at Delhi International airport, you will be welcomed and assisted by our representative and transferred straightway to your hotel to check in. Remaining time is at leisure till next morning.
We would start the morning with a drive past through impressive boulevards and buildings such as President’s Residence and others in Lutyen’s Delhi (New Delhi). Also, drive past through Satish Gujral’s designed Belgian Embassy building. Later you will be taken for the sightseeing tour of Old Delhi (Shahajahanabad) which would include your visit to the lofty Red Fort, Jama Masjid, Chandni Chowk, Humayun’s Tomb, and Qutub Minar (the astonishing victory tower built in the early 13th century).
We plan to make you visit this part of Delhi in a very special manner. We would take you first to one of the most modern areas of Delhi i.e. ‘Connaught Place’ and from here we will make you board the ultra-modern metro train’. Just a 10 minutes long train journey will make you travel back to 300 years old period where everything still seems to be working in the same old fashion i.e. at ‘Chandni Chowk’ bazaar.
At Chandni Chowk, we would further take you to ‘Khari Baoli Spice Market’ which is a true delight for the eyes. It’s truly unbelievable to see that the spices which we normally see in small sachets & packets are here seen in big sacks & carts. A wholesale market with carts full of different spices and people busy negotiating the prices, it’s a scene.
Morning after breakfast, at appropriate time depart for Agra. En-route you may visit ‘Sikandara’- famous for the beautiful mausoleum of Mughal Emperor Akbar. After breakfast proceed for sightseeing tour of Agra which includes the most beautiful monument of love - The Taj (remains closed on Fridays), Agra Fort and few other attractions. Evening you may enjoy a tonga ride through the legendary city.
Jaipur (Via Fatehpur Sikri)
At dawn, you may re-visit the incomparable Taj Mahal – one of the seven wonders of the world, to observe the effects caused by the reflections of the changing colors of the rising Sun on this masterpiece. Later after breakfast drive towards “the pink city of India- Jaipur” en-route visiting Fatehpur Sikri - the abandoned citadel of Mughal Emperor Akbar and Abhaneri step-well. Fatehpur Sikri is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a perfect blend of Hindu and Mughal architecture. It was once the capital of the Mughal Empire built in 1569 and deserted when its water supply failed. Later drive towards Abhaneri. The Chand Baori is a stepwell built over a thousand years ago in the Abhaneri village of Rajasthan. It is one of the largest step-wells in the world and one of the most beautiful ones.
