You will be picked up from the International Airport and transferred to your hotel immediately upon arrival. The rest of the day is yours to do as you like.
Stay in Delhi for the night.
We go on a combined Old and New Delhi sightseeing trip, which includes historical tourist attractions such as the Red Fort, Jama Maszid, Chandni Chowk, Purana Quilla, India Gate, Lakshmi Narayan Temple, and Qutub Minar.
DELHI – AGRA
After breakfast, check out and go to Agra, stopping along the way to see Mathura Temple and Sikandra. After checking into the hotel, proceed to the world-famous Taj Mahal, the symbol of eternal love, followed by the Red Fort and Itmad Ud-Daulah.
In terms of atmosphere, Agra is still connected with the Mughal era. The Mughals were not only great rulers, but also brilliant builders, and they left Agra and its environs with their finest architectural marvels. It boasts numerous beautiful monuments, the most famous of which is the Taj Mahal, which is a marvel of Mughal architecture at its finest. Each is distinctive and spectacular, including the vast but exquisite Agra Fort, the delicate artistry of Itimad-ud-tomb, daulah's the grand Taj, and Akbar's desolate city, Fatehpur Sikri. Their architectural brilliance can also be seen in the forts, palaces, and beautifully landscaped gardens, each one a quiet monument to a bygone era's great grandeur.
Upon arrival in Agra, check into your hotel, shower and change, and then go on a sightseeing tour of Agra, including the Taj Mahal (closed on Fridays). Midway during your journey, Tonga's "horse carriages" will be waiting for you and will drop you off at the Taj Mahal's gates.
Everything that has been written about the Taj Mahal is true and more. The white marble was quarried 200 miles distant and delivered to the site by a fleet of 1000 elephants, taking 22 years and 20,000 men to complete. The Taj Mahal was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in the mid-17th century as a symbol of his love for his wife Mumtaz Mahal. It is undoubtedly one of the world's wonders.
Though the Taj appears to be flawless from nearly every perspective, it is the close-up marble inlay work that is truly remarkable. You'll have plenty of time to admire and be amazed by this magnificent structure.
Later, go to Agra Fort, which is a magnificent specimen of Mughal architecture. Under numerous centuries, Agra Fort served as the seat and bulwark of the Mughal Empire. The current construction traces its origins to Akbar, who established the walls and gates, as well as the first structures, on the eastern banks of the Yamuna River. The spectacular quarters and mosque were erected by Shah Jehan, while the outside ramparts were added by Aurangzeb. Visit the Royal Pavilions and the Hall of Public Audience.
The rest of the day is yours to do whatever you choose. The hotel is where you will spend the night.
In Agra, spend the night in a hotel.
AGRA – FATEHPUR SIKRI – JAIPUR
After breakfast, drive to Jaipur, stopping along the way to see Fatehpur Sikri, Akbar's ideal city.
Fatehpur Sikri is a derelict red sandstone city erected by the Great Mughal Emperor Akbar in the late 16th century as his capital and palace. When the local wells ran dry, it was abandoned soon after it was erected, and it is still in much the same state now as it was almost 300 years ago.
When it was first built, it was a town the size of London, complete with palaces and mosques. With its buildings in near-perfect condition, it is now an amazing site to roam about.
Continue your journey to Jaipur after your visit, and upon arrival, check into your accommodation.
Drive to Nahargarh Fort in the evening for a breath-taking 360-degree view of the Pink City at sunset. Later, we'll visit Birla Temple and Jawahar Kala Kendra before heading out for traditional Rajasthani vegetarian cuisine in the evening. Dinner at Chokhi Dhani, or Amber Pride, an Ethnic Village Resort. After dinner, return to the hotel for an overnight stay.
After breakfast, drive to Sawai Jai Singh II to explore the well-planned city. Visit the City Palace's iconic façade, as well as Jaipur's colourful traditional lively bazaar. The Hawa Mahal, City Palace, and Jantar Mantar are all worth seeing. After lunch, tour the Amber Fort and Palace, the Jagat Shiromani Temple, and the picturesque Jal Mahal.
Continue on to Amber Fort. You will be transported to the ancient capital of Amber, just outside of Jaipur, to see the magnificent Amber Palace.
In the 17th century, Maharaja Mansingh, Mughal Emperor Akbar's most successful General, began building on Amber Palace. Amber was the seat of authority before the City Palace was built in Jaipur. A broken-down elephant Jeep will save you the effort of climbing up to the stronghold (Elephant ride is subject to availability).
You will go through the huge labyrinth of courtyards and halls once you reach the top. Many of the rooms feature beautiful wall paintings, as well as valuable stones and mirrors set into the walls.
The Sheesh Mahal (hall of mirrors), where a single lamplight is mirrored in the many mirrors, lighting up the chamber, is possibly the most fascinating.
By the time the sun reaches the peak, you will have completed the gigantic Amber fort and will be ready to visit Jaipur.
The City Palace, an enormous complex of gorgeous palaces, gardens and courtyards, ornamental paintings, and carved entrances, is one of the highlights to visit while touring Jaipur. Rare manuscripts, armoury, costumes, carpets, and miniature paintings are all on display at the royal museum. Walk to the nearby Jantar Mantar or Astronomical Observatory, which was built by the Maharaja of Jaipur in 1726 and is one of Sawai Jai Singh's five astronomical wonders that still makes accurate forecasts today.
You'll come to a halt to witness the 'Palace of Winds,' also known as the Hawa Mahal. It's actually an ornate facade from which the ladies of the court used to observe the daily activities in the street below. Its pink sandstone carving is incredibly detailed. The cold breeze rushes through the windows and latticed screens that previously allowed the queens of the court to observe the city streets.
