Welcome to Incredible India! Upon arrival into Delhi, you will be met at the airport by our representative and transferred to your hotel for check in.
Departing Delhi this morning, we journey to Agra, once India’s Mughal capital. Here, we visit the impressive Agra Fort, which boasts some of India's finest Mughal buildings behind it's fortified walls. Later we travel to the legendary Taj Mahal to witness a magical sunset. Built by Shah Jahan in the 16th century as an enduring memorial to his beloved wife Mumtaz. Built entirely of white marble, the Taj Mahal has no peers.
En route to Ranthambhore, we visit ghostly former Mughal city of Fatehpur Sikri. This magnificent fortified city was the capital of the Mughal Empire from 1571 until 1585, when it was abandoned dramatically due to a lack of water to support the peoples who resided in the city. Thanks to the very durable red sandstone, from which it was built, Fatehpur Sikri remains fantastically preserved. Continue on to Ranthambhore National Park which is one of the prime examples of Project Tiger’s conservation efforts in Rajasthan. Overnight Hotel Siris Ranthambhore
Over the next 2 days you will enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in Ranthambhore National Park. The forests around the Ranthambhore Fort were once the private hunting grounds of the Maharajas of Jaipur. The national park is one of India’s most scenic parks and offers a rich diversity of fauna and flora including the Bengal tiger, sambar, chital, nilgai, wild boar, leopard, sloth bear and myriad birdlife.

Take to the skies today with a flight to Goa, you will be met on arrival and transferred to your hotel. The remainder of the day is at your leisure to relax and soak up the sun and Goa's Golden Beaches.

Goa splits neatly into two districts: North and South Goa. South Goa is more laid back, beaches here include Bogmalo, Colva and Benaulim. Today you will enjoy a tour of South Goa with the remainder of the day free to relax on the beach.
