NEW DELHI SIGHTSEEING

After morning breakfast, do a full-day guided city sightseeing of Delhi. The capital of India is a true reflection of the old and new of India. We start our morning tour with New Delhi and first visit the famous India Gate - a war memorial dedicated to the thousands of Indian soldiers who lost their lives fighting in the battle during the World War-I and the Third Anglo-Afghan War. Spend some time taking photographs at the war memorial, followed by a drive past through the Houses of Parliament and Connaught Place. Iconic to Delhi, the two attractions offer an inviting view of the British colonial era architecture. Arrive at Old Delhi, here you will enjoy a rickshaw ride and explore the hubbub yet the charming side of the old part of Delhi city. Visit the 361-year-old Jama Masjid - the largest mosque in India with a courtyard that can hold up to 25,000 devotees. The elegant looking mosque with onion shaped dome and minarets was commissioned by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, who built the famous Taj Mahal. Moving ahead in your tour, you will drive past the UNESCO World Heritage site designated Red Fort - [Closed on Monday] that served as the imperial residence of the Mughal dynasty for around 200 years. Built of red sandstone, the construction of the fort took nine years to complete, which started in 1639. Enclosed with massive high walls, the fort is a wonderful structure to admire at. You will now proceed to Humayun’s tomb, a magnificent garden tomb, and the first to mark the grave of a Mughal emperor. It was built in 1565 A.D. by Bega Begum - senior widow of emperor Humayun, nine years after his demise. The arched exterior facade is inlaid with bands of white and red sandstone, and Islamic geometrical style strictly dominates the building’s structure and design. Lastly, proceed to another World Heritage Site in Delhi to Qutub Minar – a brick minaret towering 72 meters into the sky, 15 meters diameter at the base and a mere 2.5 at the top. Built in 1192, Qutub Minar is the highest single tower in India, and perhaps the tallest minaret in the world. The 5 storey tower is made of marble, buff and red sandstone, in a honeycomb design; beautiful Arabic verses are carved on the walls. Evening at leisure. Overnight stay at hotel. Read more

When the prophecy came true, Akbar built his new capital here, including a stunning mosque, still in use today, and three palaces, one for each of his favourite wives – one a Hindu, one a Muslim and one a Christian (though Hindu villagers in Sikri dispute these claims). The city was an Indo-Islamic masterpiece, but erected in an area that supposedly suffered from water shortages and so was abandoned shortly after Akbar’s death.

Jorge Covarrubias , United States

I am very pleased with my tour! Everything was perfect! I am very glad with the high quality of the hotels, the guides, the drivers, the representatives, the tours, the transportation. I didn't have a single problem nor disappointment during the 15 days. It was pure magic. Therefore I congratulate you for the quality of your service and you can be sure that I will recommend you 100%. As stated, everything was perfect and all the people involved were knowledgeable, but I want to recommend three of them (although all were excellent). - Vivak was the most helpful and nice guide. He helped me through the chaos at the train station en Jhansi, waited for the delayed train to come, helped me to find my seat and was always interested in my well being. Very nice guy all the way. - My driver for several days during the second part of the tour was incredible skillful, prudent, patient and nice. You couldn't get a better driver and companion. - My tour guide in Udaipur. He was the better listener. I told him what I needed and wanted, and he tailored the tour to fulfill my needs and interests, instead of overwhelming me with information. He should be an example for other guides. In brief, I loved the tour! And I am VERY PLEASED WITH YOUR SERVICE. Cheers! Read more
