Welcome to India and the start of your adventure with On the Go Tours. Upon arrival into Delhi, you'll be met at the airport and transferred to the hotel. The remainder of the day is yours to relax or independently explore this bustling capital.
Today enjoy a full day sightseeing tour of Delhi, taking in the impressive Red Fort, Jama Masjid - India’s oldest and largest mosque, Raj Ghat - the site of Gandhi’s cremation and more. Tonight enjoy a Namaste Dinner at a restaurant specialising in classic Indian cuisine.
Departing Delhi 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 its fortified walls. Later on take a motorised buggy to the legendary Taj Mahal and 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 Jaipur visit the ghostly former Mughal city of Fatehpur Sikri, abandoned due to lack of water. As you get closer to Jaipur stop for a tasty lunch and visit Chandra Haveli, a charming haveli (mansion house) with small courtyard, lawned gardens and rustic appeal carefully being restored to the splendour of better farming years. Once in Jaipur visit a cotton trading/tailor shop where you can get clothing tailored for delivery to your hotel before you leave!
Maybe opt for an early morning balloon flight over the pink city of Jaipur today. Look out for the snake charmers that dot our route as we travel to the 16th century Amber Fort. An exotic elephant ride transports you to the lofty fort where you’ll enjoy a tour of this Rajput extravaganza. Later in the afternoon tour the City Palace, which boasts an interesting museum of regal attire and Jantar Mantar, an ancient astronomical observatory.
Today we drive to the semi-desert Shekhawati region. The small towns in this region became important trading posts, a lasting legacy of which are the beautiful painted havelis (mansions) constructed by wealthy merchants in the 18th and 19th centuries. Afternoon village walk and time to relax.
Returning to Delhi, the latter part of the afternoon is free for you to relax or independently explore more of Delhi.
Today marks the end of your Indian adventure. After breakfast and hotel check out we will transfer you to the airport in time for your onward departure journey.
