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.

Your Trip

What's Included

Transport

Non-included Meals

Some meals are included on your trip (except for North America trips - please refer to your day-to-day itinerary). However, sometimes we think you'll benefit from getting out and discovering the local cuisine. So when a meal is not included, it's a great opportunity to try something new. For group trips, ask your leader for tips on where to get the best meal, or you might decide to dine out as a group and experience the fun together.
