Itinerary

expand_more
Day 1: Arrive Delhi

Fly to Delhi for a two-night stay. Your National Escort or Local Guide will meet you at the Delhi International Airport in the Arrivals Hall. Together with other group members who may be arriving at a similar time, you will transfer 45 minutes to your hotel and check-in.

Day 2: Delhi

Today is a full day of sightseeing around Old and New Delhi, involving approximately four hours on foot. Your exploration of Delhi begins with a drive past the Red Fort, before strolling through the fascinating Chandni Chowk Bazaar to Jama Masjid. Next take a rickshaw ride to Asia’s largest spice market – Khari Baoli, then stop briefly at India Gate to take some photos before visiting Humayun’s Tomb and Connaught Place Markets.

Day 3: Delhi to Agra

Depart Delhi this morning and commence the 3 and a half hour drive to the historic city of Agra. Stop at Sikandra en route to see the marble Tomb of Emperor Akbar.

Day 4: Agra

Rise early and begin the day by viewing the Taj Mahal in all its glory as the sun is rising. To reach the Taj Mahal, you will join your National Escort and drive through the awakening streets of Agra (an early start means that we can avoid the heat and crowds at the Taj Mahal later in the day). Disembarking the coach, you will board smaller electric carts to continue to the entrance gate. After clearing security and baggage checks you will be admitted to the complex. Usually 2 hours is spent here; sightseeing is easy without many steps. For admission to the main mausoleum area, you are required to wear shoe covers (this may be provided on site – be prepared to bring an additional pair of socks). Return to your hotel to freshen up and have breakfast. Later, visit a marble inlay workshop and explore Agra Fort. Sightseeing at the fort involves approximately 1 hour on foot and there are some stairs to walk up. This evening return to Agra Fort for the impressive Sound and Light Show. This new sound and light show provides an insight into the history of the monument, which is a visual delight.

Day 5: Agra - Jaipur

Depart Agra and travel 5 hours to Rajasthan’s capital Jaipur. On route stop to explore the ancient capital city Fatehpur Sikri which involves up to one hour of easy walking. Continue to Abhaneri village to see the Chand Baori Step well and marvel at this ancient construction. Upon arrival in Jaipur, check into your hotel. There is no sightseeing scheduled for this evening. Jaipur is a larger city where it would be unwise to wander around without yourNational Escort at night as there have been reports of pickpockets. Always speak to your National Escort before making own arrangements in Jaipur.

Day 6: Jaipur

Sightseeing today begins with a photo stop at the Hawa Mahal(Palace of the Winds) in downtown Jaipur. Tourists are unable to enter, so you will view it from the busy road opposite. Continue to the impressive Amer Fort, where you will ride jeeps to and from the bus park and palace entrance. Sightseeing this morning involves 2 to 3 hours on foot and there are a number of steps within the fort. Afterwards, tour the City Palace in Jaipur and Jantar Mantar, the UNESCO World Heritage listed ancient observatory. Later, enjoy some time to shop in the local bazaar in Choti Choper. Sightseeing this afternoon involves approximately 2 to 3 hours on foot and tour members are asked to be mindful of their belongings in the Choti Choper Bazaar.

Day 7: Jaipur - Delhi

Depart Jaipur and travel approximately 5 hours back to Delhi for the final night of the tour. This evening, enjoy a farewell dinner with the group.

Days 8-9: Depart Delhi

After breakfast, depending on your flight time, transfer to the airport for your return flight to the Australia arriving home the same or following day.

Questions

expand_more
Tipping:

Customary tipping amount of approximately US$50 (AU$72) is paid locally in India.

Visas:

Entry visas are required by all visitors to India. Please be advised that your passport must have at least six months validity left on it when you arrive back into Australia.

Transport:

Coaches: Coaches with air conditioning are used on our group tours for city sightseeing, short excursions to the countryside and longer transfers where necessary. Due to Indian Government regulations the use of curtains, tinted glass windows are prohibited across India. Main and inner-city roads in India have a reputation for being very congested. For this reason, it may not always be possible to return to your hotel after sightseeing to freshen up before going to the restaurant for dinner. Roads in India have generally been improved over recent years, but traffic and/or weather conditions may extend driving times. Road construction work usually covers an enormous section of road - not just one or two kilometres as you may be used to. For this reason, the timings listed in the sections above are approximations only.

Air: Internal flights are based on economy class, with reputable airlines. Pre-flight seat allocation is not available on international and internal flight sectors.

Fitness:

This is rated as a physical level 1 tour and requires unaided mobility and the ability to stroll around the sights.. A reasonable level of fitness is required but it’s more about spending time on your feet rather than covering large distances. You’ll be getting on and off coaches and boats, walking around the sights and climbing some steps.Of course, our National Escorts and local guides will always endeavour to provide the highest level of service and assistance; however, they cannot be expected to cater for customers who are unfit to complete the itinerary.If you require any more information about the pace of our tours, please contact our reservations team who will be happy to answer your questions.

Itinerary Changes:
  • The domestic airlines in this region have frequent schedule changes. For this reason, we have indicated morning, afternoon or evening flights only in the following section. Your Local Guide or National Escort will inform you of any schedule changes as they are informed of them
  • The Taj Mahal is currently undergoing renovations to its exterior. The work is estimated to be completed by December 2019 and will be done in phases so that visitors to the Taj will still be able to experience the beauty of the architectural wonder.
  • 01 Mar 2020, 08 Mar 2020 and 21 Mar 2021 and 28 Mar 2021 departures coincides with wonderful Holi Festival celebrations and sightseeing may be affected.
