WHY YOU’LL LOVE THIS TOUR
Meet Up at Delhi
Delhi | Humayun Tomb , Qutab Minar, Jama Masjid, Chandni Chowk Rickshaw Ride
Let’s tour Humayun’s Tomb - one of the best preserved Mughal monuments and best example of Mughal architecture in India, Qutab Minar - the world’s tallest brick tower, and Jama Masjid - India’s oldest and largest mosque. As we travel through both Old and New Delhi, don’t forget to add photographs of Rashtrapati Bhavan (President House), Parliament House and India Gate to your album.
Experience a busy & bustling local bazaar with a cycle rickshaw through Chandni Chowk. Followed by our group Namaste dinner.
Breakfast Welcome Dinner
Delhi – Agra | Agra Fort, Itimad-ud-Daulah Tomb, Taj Mahal, Mehtab Bagh
Later we visit the legendary Taj Mahal. Built by Emperor Shah Jahan in loving memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz, who tragically died in childbirth in 1631. The Taj Mahal is described as the most extravagant monument ever built for love and remains one of India’s most enduring symbols.
Another must-see, we will view the Taj Mahal from the lesser known, and less crowded, Mehtab Bagh (Moonlight Garden) just across the river. Experience a breathtaking photo-op with a fully symmetrical view of the Taj Mahal!
Agra - Jaipur | Fatehpur Sikri, Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary, Jantar Mantar, Hawa Mahal, Cotton Bazaar
We will have a quick photo-op stop at Keoladeo Ghana National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Keoladeo is a bird sanctuary that attracts many species of birds from India, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Siberia, China and Tibet. The park is also home to deer, antelope and boar, which can be readily spotted. Who in our group will be the champion ‘shooter’?
Visit Jantar Mantar, a UNESCO world heritage site and the largest of five astronomical observatories built by Maharaja Jai Singh in the early 18th century.
And then to Hawa Mahal, a palace so named because it was essentially a high screen wall built so the women of the royal household could observe street festivals while remaining unseen from the outside.
Later we visit a cotton weaving house for a demonstration of fabric dyeing and block printing before touring the City Palace and Jantar Mantar. Later we drive to Jaipur, the bustling capital of the state of Rajasthan.
Jaipur | Amber Fort, Sheesh Mahal, Jal Mahal, City Palace, Step Well near Kheri Gate, Choki Dhani
Continue to Sheesh Mahal, "Palace of Mirrors" which takes its name from the reflective glass tiles that embellish the interior.
On our way, enjoy the sight of Jal Mahal (Water Palace), a palace located in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake.
City Palace is an imposing blend of traditional Rajput and Mughal architecture. It is a vast palace complex occupying nearly one-seventh of the Pink City. It was originally built by Maharaja Jai Singh II. The complex is divided into a series of courtyards, sprawling gardens and buildings. It is home to several palatial structures like the Chandra Mahal, (home to present Maharajah of Jaipur), Mubarak Mahal (housing a textile museum), Diwan-e-Khas (or Hall of Private audience housing the two largest silver vessels in the world), the Diwan-e-Aam ( or Hall of Public Audience) and the gateway Ridhi Sidhi Pol (with four small doorways decorated with motifs depicting the four seasons).
Marvel at a 16th century step well near Kheri Gate. The step well serves as the community well, gathering place and swimming hole. If we are lucky, there will be bright red dragonflies playing on the glassy surface of the water.
We spend the evening at Chokhi Dhani (a Rajasthani cultural village) to enjoy traditional performances of dancers & acrobats, snack stalls, paintings, costumes and tasty Rajasthani thali cuisine at this Rajasthani cultural village.
