The Jewels of India

This classic journey to the area known as the ‘Golden Triangle’ encapsulates some of the highlights of northern India. We begin in the capital, New Delhi, and experience a fascinating sightseeing tour of both the old and new parts of the city, before heading to Rajasthan and the fortress town of Dadhikar. Our journey then continues on to the ‘Pink City’ of Jaipur, where we explore the busy markets, see the famous Palace of the Winds and discover the superb Amber Fort. From there it's on to Agra where we visit the magnificent Taj Mahal. Finally we return to Delhi on day six, where our tour ends the following day.

Occasionally our itineraries are updated during the year to incorporate improvements deriving from past travellers' and local operator feedback. The information given in this itinerary may differ slightly to that in the brochure. It's imperative that you print and review a final copy of your itinerary a couple of days prior to travel, in case there have been changes that affect your plans. For the latest updated itinerary please visit our website: www.peregrineadventures.com Please note that while we operate successful trips in this region throughout the year, some of the changes that may occur in our itineraries could be due to inclement weather and common seasonal changes to timetables and transportation. This can happen with little notice so please be prepared for the chance of possible modifications to the trip en route.

Our ground operator will collect and keep one copy of the key pages of your passport in the unlikely event of an emergency. Please bring this along to the initial group meeting.

Emergency Funds
Please make sure that you have access to at least an additional US$500. This money can be drawn upon in unforeseen incidents or circumstances outside our control (eg. a natural disaster, civil unrest, etc) that result in Peregrine necessitating a change to our planned route.

Issues On Your Trip
While we always endeavour to provide you the best possible holiday experience, due to the nature of travel and the areas we visit sometimes things can and do go wrong. Should any issue occur while you are on your trip, it is imperative that you discuss this with your tour leader/specialist guide or our local representative straight away so that they can do their best to rectify the problem and save any potential negative impact on the rest of your trip. We recognize that there may be times when your tour leader/local partner may not be able to resolve a situation to your satisfaction - if this is the case, please ask the leader/guide to speak to their direct manager.

Responsible Travel
We believe strongly in low impact or rather positive impact tourism. Broadly speaking this means that we try to minimize the negative aspects of tourism on the local cultures and environments that we visit and highlight the positive aspects.
