Itinerary

Day 1

Days 2-4

Delhi

Welcome to the frenzy of life and colour that is Delhi, India’s bustling capital. Soak up the city’s favourite hot spots, including the imposing Red Fort, the vibrant old city market and the largest mosque in India, the Jama Masjid. Capture the magic with help from an expert photographer, who’ll teach you how to take the perfect shot and create a delightful keepsake of your Indian journey. Later, take a walk with the Salaam Baalak Trust, whose members work to help rehabilitate the city’s street children and improve their quality of life. Join one of the children as they guide you around their side of Delhi and give you an insight into their daily activities.

Days 5-6

Agra

Depart for lively Agra, where you’ll spend your first evening enjoying a performance of Mohabbat the Taj, a passionate play that uses music to tell the story of the Taj Mahal. The next morning it’s time for the undeniable highlight of your trip: the Taj Mahal. You’ll have undoubtedly heard so much about this celebrated monument, but nothing can prepare you for the regal splendour of the architecture and the purity of the white carved marble, which reflects exquisite pink and gold hues at sunrise. But the Taj Mahal is not the only sight to see in Agra – the World Heritage-listed Agra Fort, constructed from red sandstone and once home to the state treasury and mint, is definitely worth a look as well.

Leaving Agra, you’ll stop off at the Mughal imperial city of Fatehpur Sikri to appreciate the grand architecture. The complex is in an excellent condition, making it easy to imagine the place filled with life. Continue on to Jaipur and admire the flamboyance of the ‘Pink City’, once home to the Maharajas and the current state capital of Rajasthan. Take a look around the stunning City Palace and marvel at the Jantar Mantar observatory. Leave the city behind and ascend the steep access roads to the magnificent Amber Fort, filled with decorated halls and intricate glasswork.
