The Experience

Day 1 | DEPART LONDON HEATHROW

Today you will board on an overnight flight to Delhi (1 stopover; 1-5 hours). 

Overnight is in the plane

Day 2 | ARRIVE DELHI

Today you will arrive at Delhi’s International Airport. Following customs, immigration formalities and baggage collection, a LUMLE representative will meet you as you exit the arrivals terminal building and transfer you to your hotel.

Perhaps there is no other capital city in the world so steeped in history and legend as the Indian capital Delhi. It was the magnet, which drew the Mongols, Turks, Persians, Afghans, Mughals and the British, all of whom contributed to its glorious but turbulent past. The fascination with Delhi was such that even though it was abandoned many times, its rulers returned to it, again and again, rebuilding it at least seven times. Today, the twin cities of Old and New Delhi still intrigue Indians and tourists alike as the cultural and political capital of the largest democracy in the world.

Overnight is in Delhi

Day 3 | IN DELHI

Early morning you will embark on the combined city tour Delhi. Delhi is divided into two parts New and Old Delhi. First, you will visit the old part of Delhi. You will visit:

Jamia Masjid – One of the oldest Mosques in Asia followed by a rickshaw ride in the old narrow streets of Chandini Chowk, silver streets and spices Markets, and then later visit the Red Fort (photo stop only) and the Rajghat – Cremation place of Mahatma Ghandi. Following this, you will take a break at local ethnic restaurants (at own cost).

After lunch, you will kick off the second part of your Delhi tour for sightseeing of New Delhi by the drive past The Rashtrapati Bhawan and Parliament of India and visit the India Gate, a war memorial. Then you’ll visit the famous Humuyus Tomb – the replica of Taj Mahal made of sandstone and marble. Other highlights of the day included visits to Lotus Temple – belonging to the Bahai Faith. Later visiting the Tallest Minaret called Qutub Minar and return to the hotel.

Overnight is in Delhi

Day 4 | DELHI – AGRA

After breakfast, you begin your journey to Agra (214 Km /5 Hrs).

Upon arrival in Agra, you will check-in at your hotel and a representative will assist you to complete your check-in formalities.

Agra came into the limelight during the rule of the Afghan King Sikandar Lodhi – who had made it the capital of his empire. Later in 1526 A.D., the Mughal Emperor Babar took upon himself the task for rendering Agra, a unique character, and beauty of its own. The next few hundred years of Agra witnessed the rise of the pomp and pageantry of three great Mughal monarchs – Emperor Akbar, Jehangir, and Shahjahan. In modern times, the city of Agra is a thriving carpet industry where you can also find leather workers, sandstone and marble sculptors, some of whom claim to be direct descendants of the craftsmen who had helped build the Taj Mahal.

Visit the Taj Mahal, monument remains closed on all Fridays. Taj Mahal was built by an emperor in memory of his beloved queen. Construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1631 and is believed to have taken 18 years to complete, with over 20,000 craftsmen working around the clock. The design and construction are said to be that of the legendary architect, Ustad Ahamad Lahori. What makes the Taj Mahal unique is its perfect proportions, distinct femininity, the medium of construction and ornamentation. Its marble exterior reflects rose and golden tints at sunrise and sunset, while it is dazzling white during the day. It is impossible to visualize the Taj Mahal in any surrounding others than its paradoxical garden. Paradise, in Islam, is visualized as a lush garden where running streams flow.

Later visit the impressive Agra Fort, the seat and stronghold of the Mughal Empire for successive generations. The buildings within this sprawling fort complex represent the assimilation of different cultures, which was the mark of the Mughal period. Most of the structures within the Agra Fort are a mixture of different architectural styles.

Overnight is in Agra

Day 5 | AGRA – JAIPUR

Today you will be proceeding to Taj Mahal for sunrise (without the guide) and drive to Jaipur.

Enroute you’ll visit Fathepur Sikri and see famous Buland Darwaja, Panch Mahal, and Mughal architecture. Arrive in Jaipur and transfer to hotel.

Overnight is in Jaipur

Day 6 | IN JAIPUR

After breakfast, visit Amber Fort. High above the city, the towers and domes of the Amber Fort are reminiscent of scenes from some fairy tale. The palace itself is within the enormous fort complex and is replete with halls, gardens, pavilions, and temples. The Hall of Mirrors is not to be missed where one lit matchstick can illuminate the entire room.

Later proceed to visit the City Palace Museum where you can see an imposing blend of traditional Rajasthani and Mughal Art. The museum is resplendent with its collection of robes of royal princes, carpets, an armory of old weapons, miniature paintings portraying court scenes, battle scenes and processions, Also visit the awe inspiring Jantar Mantar (an accurate observatory built in 1726 AD).

Your tour also included is a photo visit at the Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds) – a five storied wonder with a spectacular pyramidal facade and overhanging windows with latticed screens, domes, and spires.

Later walk through the colourful markets of Jaipur.

    Golden Triangle with Goa

    First trip to India, great advise and great customer service in the UK. We could not fault, the advise and service we received during the booking process, the recommendations of what to see and where to stay was faultless.

    We were meet by a representative at every step of our journey around India, it made every check in so easy and straight forward, the travel reps go above and beyond any other travel company we have ever used. We would recommend booking a private tour if you want to pick and chose where you go and the times you go. 1st class service from the start to end of your holiday.

    “Amazing tour in India”

    We are just back from a 2 week tour of India booked through Lumle Holidays. We had an amazing trip and went from Delhi – Agra – Ranthambore – Jaipur – Pushka – Udaipur and then finally down to Goa for 3 days to relax. Narayan form Lumle was brilliant from my first enquiry about a tour – initially we were interested in China but then decided on India – nothing was too much trouble for Narayan. After a few emails we sorted the tour out and had confirmation pretty much straight away. Narayan gave us options on the level of hotel and we decided on the 3* hotel options for most of the tour and a 5* one in Goa to relax. All the hotels were fine (the one in Goa amazing) but we probably wouldn’t recommend the one in Delhi – not because it was bad because it wasn’t it – only that the air con was a bit noisy and there wasn’t a pool – but its perfectly adequate for a city centre hotel. we had a private tour which meant we had the same driver for the 9 days touring and he was the most amazing driver ever and so accommodating and felt like a great friend very soon and we will miss him. We had a couple of minor issues when we were there but as soon as I emailed Narayan he emailed me back within a few minutes and was in contact with the Delhi office straight away. At one hotel we were sat in the restaurant when the waiter said we had a call from England – it was from Narayan just checking we were ok and to apologise for the issue and that it had been sorted. It was a minor mis communication from the Delhi office not from Narayan and it was resolved easily. The fact that Narayan is so good with his communication it really gives you confidence in the company and you know you can always get hold of him. We had a rep meet us at every hotel and departure airport to make sure you are ok – this is particularly good if you haven’t travelled much. We had an amazing holiday and would highly recommend using Lumle travel – we told lots of people about the company during our travel. Don’t think that you have to do a tour that is advertised as Narayan will tailor it for you if you want to stay longer at one place. My tips – go to Ranthambore and see a Tiger (we saw one) but I would do at least 2 safari’s – 3 if you have time as they are amazing. Spend it bit more time on Pushkar – we only had a few hours and although the guide was great it would have been good to spend some time on our own looking around (and shopping – the markets are great here). I always felt safe during my time in India and everyone was really friendly and helpful. Thank you Narayan for a great tour and we will be definitely booking another on with you next year.
