ItineraryExpand
Day 1
Upon arrival at Delhi airport you will be met by our representative who will transfer you to your hotel. There are no activities planned for the rest of the day so you are free to explore this bustling capital city. India's capital is an exciting, busy, and often chaotic city but certainly one of the most interesting. Delhi comprises of conspicuously contrasting Old and New Delhi. Old Delhi was the capital of Muslim India between the 12th and 19th centuries and one can find mosques, monuments and forts related to this Muslim history. New Delhi is the imperial city created as India's capital by the British, intricately planned and comprises of imposing buildings displaying various modern styles of architecture. For those arriving early, explore some of the many attractions on your own - explore the Janatar Mantar, wander the local markets, catch the metro anywhere, visit the Crafts Museum, Indira Gandhi Museum or Birla House (the site of Gandhi's assassination) or relax in the magical Lodi Gardens. Overnight: Delhi
Day 2
This morning after breakfast we undertake a sightseeing tour of Old Delhi and New Delhi visiting the Red Fort (closed on Mondays), Jama Masjid & Raj Ghat, Qutub Minar, Humayun's Tomb, Birla Temple and India Gate. Designed by the builder of the Taj Mahal, Shah Jehan, the Red Fort is famous for its delicate carvings and Royal Chambers. The Raj Ghat is the cremation ground of the father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi. Humayun's Tomb is believed to have been designed in 1565 AD by the widow of Mughal emperor Himayun. Its design and layout is based on the description of Islamic paradise gardens and is known to have inspired the Taj Mahal and many later Mughal tombs. The Qutab Minar has walls inscribed with intricately carved quotations from the Koran and is one of the most perfect towers of the Persian world. Overnight: Delhi
Day 3
In the morning drive to Agra (205 km 3 hours). Arrive in Agra and check into the Grand Imperial hotel (or similar). The 100 year old The Grand Imperial is constructed of biscuit bricks commonly referred to as Lahori bricks, which were also used in the construction of the Taj Mahal and the Red Fort. Post World War II, the Imperial Hotel, as it was then known, played host to distinguished guests such as The Crown Prince of England and Japan and Prince Aga Khan and others. Later in the evening we visit Agra Fort and the Taj Mahal (closed to visitors on Fridays). Built by Shah Jahan as a mausoleum for his wife Mumtaz Mahal the beauty of the Taj Mahal is unmatched. On the death of his beloved wife, in wild extravagance, Shah Jahan built her this memorial. 20,000 men laboured for over 17 years to build this wealth of white marble and precious stone. Agra is a great place to try barbecue meats (kebabs) mixed with Indian spices. Petha, pieces of white pumpkin dipped in sugar syrup, and Gajak, a crumbly sweet made with sesame and jaggery, are delicious local sweets and sold everywhere - try them. Overnight: Agra
Day 4
We have an early breakfast at the hotel and in the morning drive to Jaipur (238 km 6 hours approximately) en route visiting Fatehpur Sikri. The ghost city Fatehpur Sikri was built in red sandstone by Emperor Akbar the Great in 1569 and deserted 14 years later because its water supply failed. Its glorious courtyards and palaces conjure up dreams of the mysterious past. There's the imperial Jami Masjid, the tomb of Shaik Salim Chisti who predicted the birth of Akbar's son Jehangir, the Panch Mahal, a strange building which resembles a Buddhist temple, a cloistered courtyard which was the Hall of Public Audience and the Pachchisi paved with black and white where the Emperor played chess using slave girls as figurines. We arrive in Jaipur and check in to our hotel. Overnight: Jaipur.
Day 5
After breakfast at the hotel, we head out on a morning excursion to the Amber Fort, the honey coloured fortress-palace in the Aravalli Hills just north of the town centre. The sombre exterior belies the richness of the royal apartments, which open to striking views of the gorge. The Hall of Victory presents a galaxy of decorative art - panels of alabaster with fine inlay work of the tenderness hues and the intriguing Chamber of Mirrors. We have an afternoon city tour of Jaipur including a visit to the City Palace, now a museum that contains fine Rajput and Moghul paintings, rare manuscripts and an armory, old carpets, and even amazingly embroidered clothes of the Maharajas and the Maharanis, and Observatory. Overnight: Jaipur.
Day 6
This morning after Breakfast we journey by road to the charming village of Samode (45 km -1 hour) and stay two exhilarating nights at Samode Palace for a real glimpse of life as a Maharaja. Set amidst fairy tale surroundings in the rugged landscape of the northern Aravalli hills, the palace is full of architectural splendour, with its painted ceilings, stained glass windows and intricately carved walls that give this palace an aura of timeless grandeur, a classic reminder of Rajasthan's regal heritage.
Day 7
This morning enjoy a camel or Jeep Safari. This afternoon is at leisure where you will be free to explore. The village of Samode is also an excellent place to relax, far removed from bustling city streets. The village is also well known for its various artisans who sell their work in the markets along the streets.
Day 8
