WHY YOU’LL LOVE THIS TOUR
Meet Up at Delhi (DEL)
Delhi | Old and New Capital City
Explore both Old and New Delhi, including Humayun’s Tomb of the Mughal Emperor, Qutab Minar - the world’s tallest brick tower and Jama Masjid - India’s oldest and largest mosque. Experience a busy & bustling local bazaar with a cycle rickshaw through Chandni Chowk.
Delhi – Jaipur | The Pink City
Visit 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.
Jaipur is affectionately known as the Pink City because Maharaja Ram Singh had all the Old City painted it a welcoming pink in 1876 to herald a visit by the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII). It is also the bustling capital of the state of Rajasthan. Watch out for snake charmers here!
Jaipur | The Pink City
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.
On our way, enjoy the sight of Jal Mahal (Water Palace), a palace located in the middle of Man Sagar Lake.
Continue to Sheesh Mahal, "Palace of Mirrors" which takes its name from the reflective glass tiles that embellish its interior.
Later this afternoon we enjoy a tour of the City Palace. 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).
We spend the evening at Chokhi Dhani (Rajasthan Cultural Village) to enjoy traditional performances by dancers & acrobats, explore snack stalls, paintings, costumes and tasty Rajasthani thali cuisine at this mock Rajasthani village.
Breakfast Chokhi Dhani Dinner
Jaipur - Agra | Desert Life
Visit Fatehpur Sikri, the former imperial capital of the great Mughal emperor Akbar. Built between 1569 and 1585 it has been deserted for more than four centuries, by all accounts abandoned in 1600 due to a meagre supply of water.
Agra | Mughal Empire
In Agra, we visit the impressive Agra Fort which boasts some of India's finest Mughal buildings behind its fortified walls. Different parts of the fort have been infused with different architectural influences.
This is our chance to size up the Itimad-ud-Daulah Tomb that is a Mughal era mausoleum, often described as a "jewel box" or the "Baby Tāj". This tomb has often been regarded as the inspiration for the Tāj Mahal.
Agra – Delhi - Ahmedabad
Ahmedabad | Art Gallery in Cave, Adalaj step well
To ease the water shortage during the 15th century, Adalaj step well was built to store and provide water for drinking, washing and bathing. It became integral to the dry region of Gujarat and is also a venue for colorful festivals and sacred rituals. The well is intricately carved and is five stories deep.
