Our 9-day Incredible India takes you north, as we explore the Golden Triangle route of Delhi, Jaipur, Agra and includes unique activities and experiences to give you an authentic Indian holiday.
We'll start in India's capital city of New Delhi, which is home to an unforgettable collage of all the cultures, religions and languages. We'll also visit Old Delhi - which served as the home of the Mughal Empire centuries ago. You'll be mesmerised by Old Delhi's rich history, exquisite architecture and its tasty street cuisine, in contrast to the modern architecture and way of life in New Delhi.
We'll also stop at the 'Pink City' of Jaipur, the capital of India's Rajasthan state. We'll explore it's highlights such as Amber Fort, City Palace and the Jantar Mantar Observatory, whilst also taking in the beautiful craft and produce markets dotted all around us. While we're in Rajasthan, we'll also visit the village of Tordi - staying in a converted palace and exploring its remote village, which will give you great insight into the daily lives of the locals who call this rural area home.
We'll visit the massive stepwell at Abanheri, which boasts approximately 3,500 steps and 13 stories, before heading to Bharatpur for a guided cycle rickshaw ride in the Keoladeo National Park, exploring its wide variety of birdlife and other wildlife.
Next on the agenda is a tour of Fatehpur Sikri, a small, deserted city in northern India, just west of Agra. Built during the second half of the 16th century by the Emperor Akbar, Fatehpur Sikri was the capital of the Mughal Empire. A local villager will take us on a Mughal Heritage Walk through villages and farmland on the bank of the Yamuna River, giving us a stunning view of the Taj Mahal.
That won't be the only view you'll get of the Taj Mahal, as we take you on a sunrise tour of this spectacular monument before we head to Agra's Red Fort. We'll make one more stop, to a visit to the Akshardham temple to watch a spectacular multimedia water show.
We'll stay in comfortable mid-range modern-style hotels in Delhi and Agra, mixed with heritage hotels converted from Havelis and Palaces in Jaipur and Tordi, and a resort on the edge of Keoladeo National Park.
