Day 1: Delhi, India
Upon arrival in New Delhi, a tour representative will meet you at the airport and escort you to check-in to the hotel.
Day 2: Delhi, India (B)
This morning after breakfast, join your experienced local guide on an exciting half day tour of Delhi. Visit historic Jama Masjid and drive past the Red Fort. Experience the narrow winding lanes best traversed by cycle-rickshaw; they house some of the oldest trading establishments and inhabitants of the Old City. Later, drive past the Rashtrapati Bhavan (Presidential Palace) and the secretariat buildings, the impressive Rajpath and World War I memorial arch; the India Gate. Later visit Delhi’s most beautiful monument; the Humayun’s Tomb. On the way back to the hotel, notice the contrasting architectural styles, introduced by colonial rulers, mirroring styles from across Europe and adapted to India.
Day 3: Delhi – Agra (B)
After breakfast at the hotel this morning, view the changing landscape from your comfortable air-conditioned coach to Agra, home of the magnificent Taj Mahal. After checking in, relax or explore in your own time for the rest of the day.
Day 4: Agra – Taj Mahal Sunrise & Agra Fort (B)
Start the day with a sunrise visit to the Taj Mahal. The stunning mausoleum immortalized the name of Shah Jahan’s last wife Mumtaz Mahal, “light of the palace”. Built by artisans from neighbouring Islamic countries as well as India, it is aptly described by the poet laureate Tagore as “A tear on the face of eternity”. Decorated with a mosaic of semi-precious stones and Persian calligraphy recreating verses from the Koran, the mausoleum is an important place of pilgrimage as the empress died in childbirth, making her a martyr. At dawn, the marble structures glow and gently change colour as the sky brightens. After returning to the hotel to freshen up and for breakfast, visit mighty Agra Fort. Richly decorated with marble and mosaic, it was in part of this fort-palace that Shah Jahan, who built the Taj Mahal in homage to his wife, spent the last years of his life, imprisoned by his son. The quarters where he was confined have a magical view of the Taj Mahal across the river Yamuna. Enjoy free time to wander the intriguing streets and laneways of Agra’s old city.
Day 5: Agra – Fatehpur Sikri & Abhraneri, Japuir (B)
The tour departs for Jaipur after breakfast this morning. Just 40kms outside Agra, stop to wander the deserted plazas and streets of Fatehpur Sikri, built by the Mughals in the 15th century and abandoned within 20 years due to a lack of water, the ornate buildings and palaces are remarkably well preserved, they offer a somewhat eerie insight into the grandeur of the Mughal Empire at its peak. After lunch (not included), the tour will stop briefly in Abhaneri, the otherwise unassuming regional town that is home to a stunning stepwell; Chand Baori. Its ornate, symmetrical, and strikingly narrow stepped walls were constructed over 1000 years ago and remain in excellent condition. The day concludes on arrival into Jaipur, look out for the effect of the setting sun on the city’s pink walls as you enter.
Day 6: Jaipur (B)
Spend today exploring the ‘Pink City’ and its historical significance in the region. Start at magnificent Amber Fort, strategically positioned on a hilltop, home to vast halls and the famous entirely mirrored room ‘Sheesh mahal’. In the afternoon visit the sprawling City Palace, a superb marriage of Rajput and Mughal architecture. The seven-storied Chandra Mahal (Moon Palace) is a sprawling complex with multiple courtyards, public buildings, an astronomical observatory, and zenana mahals (harems). From the City Palace, you enter the extraordinary “Jantar Mantar”, an astronomical observatory built-in 1827. Instruments resembling massive futuristic structures are actually highly sophisticated instruments that are accurate even today.
Finally, drive through the busy streets for a photography stop at Hawa Mahal, the ornate pink façade an icon of the city. The five-storied high ‘screen’ composed of projected windows and balconies protected by fine latticed screens, was designed to enable the ladies of the harem to observe the lively street scenes of the city from a position of privacy. Enjoy your free time this evening.
Day 7: Jaipur – Delhi (B)
Depart Jaipur today and drive back to Delhi today for your final night.
Day 8 -9: Dubai, United Arab Emirates (B)

Welcome to Dubai where you will be able to explore some of the most astounding man-made sites in the Northern Hemisphere. Check out The Palm, an island built in the shape indicative of its name, filled with opulent mansions and in close proximity to the Burj Al Arab Hotel. The Burj is a 7 star, unmatched experience built for the ultra-wealthy elitists. The most well-known building in Dubai is without a doubt the Burj Khalifa, extending 830 metres, seamlessly entering the stratosphere.
