Delhi

Nothing quite prepares you for the colours, sights and aromas you’ll encounter when you first arrive in Delhi. Join your guide and soak up the sights – don’t miss the impressive British Colonial architecture at the President’s House and the Mughal-style Humayun’s Tomb, as well as the more contemporary Lotus Temple, built in 1986.

Agra

Transfer to Agra by air-conditioned private car, and take a look around the World Heritage-listed Agra Fort, built in the 11th Century. Later on, it’s time for the stand-out highlight of your trip: the Taj Mahal. Take your time, soak up the view and admire the exquisite marble façade of what is without doubt the most majestic building on the planet. The next day, set off on a Mughal Heritage walk, learning more about Agra’s fascinating history and taking a relaxing stroll through the flower-filled Mehtab Bagh Gardens, which also afford wonderful views across the Yamuna River to the Taj Mahal. While in Agra, you’ll stay at the delightful Oberoi Amarvilas, which offer perfectly framed views of the Taj Mahal from the windows.
