The Golden Triangle is a classic introduction to India. If you have never been to the subcontinent before, this 11 day tour is the perfect introduction. The three Indian cities – Delhi, Jaipur and Agra – speak history like no other book can. See with your own eyes the glory of the iconic yesteryear, giving a sense of nostalgia and a sense of belonging. Delhi has the influence of Moghul and British architecture, whereas Jaipur is known for being India’s first planned city where Rajputana architecture shines with its parks, gardens, monuments and palaces-turned-hotels beautifully laid out. While Agra, once the heart of the Moghul Empire, boasts the unparalleled beauty of the Taj Mahal which adorns the banks of the Yamuna River. Once the main tour is complete, enjoy an extension to the city of Goa, on the southwestern coast of India, a land of sun, sand and surf. This exotic city exudes a tropical atmosphere – a completely different side of India from what we’ve seen in the Golden Triangle – featuring delicious cuisine, a pristine coastline and an impressive Portuguese heritage.

DETAILED ITINERARY

Day 1 : DEPARTURE LONDON HEATHROW

Today you will board on an overnight plane to New Delhi. Your flight will have 1 stopover with 1-5 hour stopover; direct flights [Virgin, British Airways and Air India] are available to New Delhi at extra cost, please ask at the time of booking if you wish to fly direct.

Overnight at the plane.

Day 2 : ARRIVAL DELHI

Once you arrive at Indira Gandhi International Airport, a representative will meet and greet you, followed by a transfer to your hotel. Delhi encapsulates two very different worlds, the ‘old’ and the ‘new’, each presenting deliciously different experiences. Rambunctious Old Delhi, the Muslim Indian capital between the 17th and 19th century, has many mosques, monuments, forts and bazaars with a distinctive mediaeval flavour. New Delhi, the imperial city created by the British, flaunts a surprising number of impressive monuments reflecting the glory of the Mughal, Turk, Persian and ultimately the British rulers.

Overnight in Delhi in selected hotel and board option

Day 3 : DELHI SIGHTSEEING TOUR

After breakfast, go out on a sightseeing tour of Delhi visiting highlights of Old & New Delhi. Start the tour by visiting the largest monument of Old Delhi, the imposing Red Fort (Closed on Mondays). Very near the fort is the 17th-century Jama Masjid (‘Friday Mosque’), the largest mosque in India. Walk through the famous bazaars of Chandni Chowk to experience the hustle and bustle of a crowded oriental bazaar. Also visit Raj Ghat, the Mahatma Gandhi memorial, a simple black marble platform that marks the spot of his cremation.
In New Delhi, visit the India Gate, the memorial of the First World War and the road that leads from there to the President House, flanked by the houses of Parliament, the Secretariat building followed by the Humayun’s Tomb, also known as the forerunner of the Taj Mahal. End your tour, before your return to the hotel, by visiting Qutub Minar, the tallest brick minaret of its kind in the world.

Overnight in Delhi in selected hotel and board option.

Day 4 : DELHI – JAIPUR (235km – 5.5 hrs)

Wake up to breakfast at the hotel and proceed to Jaipur. Food fit for royalty, stunning historical monuments, a merry shopping scene and legendary Rajput hospitality: Jaipur offers all this and more. Jaipur is affectionately known as the ‘Pink City’ due to its numerous pink-coloured buildings; at sunset, the mellow golden rays bathe the pink façades in an indescribably beautiful way. Check-in on arrival at your new hotel and enjoy the rest of the afternoon at leisure

Overnight in Jaipur in selected hotel and board option.

Day 5 : JAIPUR SIGHTSEEING TOUR

Breakfast at the hotel is followed by a morning tour of Amber Fort. Located on a spur overlooking a lake, Amber Fort’s robust, time-ravaged walls appear imposing from the outside but they hide an interior packed with beautifully decorated palaces and temples, and landscaped gardens. Be dazzled by Sheesh Mahal, a room with all the four walls and the ceiling completely embedded with glittering mirror pieces. Admire the frescoes of the Ganesh Pol gate and the colonnade of the Diwan-i-Aam.

Return to the old city to visit the City Palace and the beautiful palaces within, such as the Chandra Mahal and Mubarak Mahal and the intricately decorated Peacock Gate. Also of interest is the Armoury Museum, which houses an impressive collection of antique weapons such as blunderbusses, flintlocks, swords, rifles and daggers, which belonged the royals.

Continue to Jantar Mantar, the astonishing largest stone astronomical observatory in the world. Consisting of 14 major geometric devices for measuring time, predicting eclipses, tracking stars in their orbits, ascertaining the declination of planets and determining the celestial altitudes, the observatory is a major attraction in Jaipur.

End your tour by making a stop at the spellbinding Hawa Mahal or Palace of the Winds (photo stop) and the famous Johari bazaar famous for its jewels and saris, the Tripolia bazaar with bronzes, sculptures and lacquerware, the Bapu bazaar renowned for its perfumes and textiles, and Chandpol bazaar for pottery and bracelets.

Overnight in Jaipur in selected hotel and board option.

Day 6 : JAIPUR – AGRA (250km – 6 hrs)

After replenishing your energy with breakfast at the hotel, take to the road and drive to Agra on the banks of the River Yamuna. Agra rose to fame in the 17th century as the capital of the Mughal Empire and was beautified with gardens, waterfalls, bathhouses and canals. In modern times, the city houses a thriving crafts industry, including marble inlay work and carpets. On arrival check-in at your new hotel.

Overnight in Agra in selected hotel and board option

Day 7 : AGRA – DELHI (200km – 3 hrs)

Begin the day with one last breakfast at the hotel before a sightseeing tour of Agra, which includes the awe-inspiring Taj Mahal. Built in the mid-17th century by the heartbroken Shah Jahan following the death in childbirth of his queen, Mumtaz Mahal, this mausoleum is an eternal love poem written in stone. During the visit, admire the intricacy of the work of the 20,000 craftsmen who were brought from Persia, Turkey, France and Italy to build this astonishing monument. (Closed on Fridays). Continue the tour and visit the Agra Fort, whose forbidding red sandstone battlements hide a number of majestic Mughal palaces. Explore the delightful Diwan-i-Am (Hall of Public Audience) where the emperor once sat on his throne to address his people, and the Diwan-i-Khas (Hall of Private Audience) where he hosted kings and foreign dignitaries. The white marble Mina Masjid (Heavenly Mosque) stands in contrast to the rest of the Red Fort.

Afterwards, drive back to Delhi, and check-in to your hotel.

Afterwards, proceed to Old Goa which is the ancient capital of Goa, located 10 kilometres east of the present capital, Panaji, and visit the Portuguese Basilica of Bom Jesus. Continue the tour and visit the Se Cathedral which is said to be the largest church in Asia. On top of its facade hangs the golden bell. End your tour by visiting Panaji, built on the banks of the River Mandovi and spend some time walking the small squares and back lanes of the town’s old quarter where the Portuguese influence is most evident. Here you can spend some time for shopping before returning back to your hotel. Remainder of the afternoon is at leisure.
