Old Delhi & New

This morning, our Welcome Meeting takes place.

Tonight, we enjoy a group Namaste dinner at our hotel.
Overnight: Delhi  |  Breakfast, Dinner

Day 3

Jaipur - the Pink City!

Delhi - Jaipur. Today we drive to Jaipur. Affectionately known as the Pink City because Maharaja Ram Singh had all of the Old City painted a welcoming pink in 1876 to herald a visit by the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII), it is also the bustling capital of the state of Rajasthan. This afternoon we enjoy a tour of the City Palace and Jantar Mantar - an ancient yet cleverly designed space observatory. Watch out for snake charmers along the way.
Overnight: Jaipur  |  Breakfast

Day 4

Amber Fort

Early-risers can opt for a morning hot air balloon ride over Jaipur, and sail over hilltop forts, regal palaces, sleepy villages, and stone carved temples. Then we travel beyond Jaipur to the stunning 16th century Amber Fort - a sprawling Rajput construction, perched on a hillside overlooks the dusty plains below. Before returning to Jaipur we stop at a cotton weaving house to see a demonstration of fabric dyeing and block printing.
Overnight: Jaipur  |  Breakfast

Village life

Jaipur - Abhaneri - Bharatpur. Departing Jaipur we stop in the village of Abhaneri to see Chand Baori, which is the largest and deepest step well in the world. This incredible well has a staggering 3500 steps and is 13 stories deep. Then we gain an insight into local village life, visiting Adarsh Vidya Mandir local school (if open) where we operate our ‘Change for Children’ programme. After hotel check in at Bharatpur and time to freshen up we visit Keoladeo Ghana National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where we’ll enjoy a leisurely bicycle rickshaw ride through the park.
Overnight: Bharatpur  |  Breakfast, Dinner

Day 6

Taj Mahal

Bharatpur - Agra. En route to Agra, we visit Fatehpur Sikri, former imperial capital of the great Mughal emperor Akbar. Built between 1569 and 1585, it has been deserted for more than four centuries, by all accounts abandoned in 1600 due to a meagre supply of water. In Agra, we visit the impressive Agra Fort before touring the legendary Taj Mahal. Built by Emperor Shah Jahan in loving memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz, who tragically died in childbirth in 1631, the Taj Mahal is described as the most extravagant monument ever built for love and remains one of India’s most enduring symbols.

This is my second trip with On the Go. It was everything we wanted. A trip that is jammed packed with so many tours and sightseeing.

We were lucky to have such a caring and an informative guide. Baazars was not included in the tour and us ladies love to shop and experience these markets. After our day tours our guide took us to a market in Jaipur he waited for us until we were done and took us back to the hotel. We felt very safe and very grateful for that. He gave us so much of information and made us appreciate India so much more. He guided us so well. He stopped so many times for ATM's and the restrooms. His stories were interesting regarding all the gods, different religions and the part of India. We had many fun nights with dancing and activities. We even had a dancing night on the bus.We were very comfortable with him and thank him for everything he has done for us. ON THE GO has 1 of the best guides in INDIA.

The overall trip was perfect and planned really well.

A great taste of India, confronting in one respect but more than I expected, excellent food, great sights. I have done a number of group tours in different countries, a great tour is made by a good tour group and a great guide, we had both on this tour. Mahindra was excellent, related to everyone on tour, good humour, great knowledge, great organisation, a great ambassador for Ön the Go Tours". Everyone that I have spoken to since, I have recommended this tour and suggested that they ask for a tour where Mahindra is the guide.

Mahi was a great guide. He was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We were a very small group which was very lucky for us and although we were of differing ages we really gelled and much of this is attributed to Mahi. He made everyone laugh with his upbeat but relaxed personality.

He had a wide range of knowledge about each site we visited and was happy to share additional information about life in India. Although we saw only a small part of India I feel Mahi gave us a real insight into his amazing country

Despite a rocky start (no fault of On The Go Tours) due to a flight delay. Satendra “Sat” could not do enough to make you feel welcome, comfortable and impart so much knowledge about India. This is my second tour now and thanks to Sat he has ensured that my opinion of On The Go Tours remains very high, I would recommend you to anyone. Not only does Sat do the day job but he made sure things happened when it was the birthday of one of the fellow travellers.

I left India with lifetime memories and new very good friends including Sat. I will never forget dancing on the bus on the way back from the Bollywood restaurant and the immense beauty of India. Money cannot buy the experiences we had and this was largely down to Sat.

I look forward to booking with OTGT! Keep up the great work.

The tour was excellent and Sat was the perfect host. He managed every single detail for us and nothing was uncertain or complicated. Clearly Sat has a huge amount of experience and was incredibly knowledgeable about India. He is possibly the best tour guide we've ever had. The tour itself was excellent, the hotels were more than adequate and the food was exceptional at every place we were taken too.

We got to see everything we wanted to see and more and can't thank you enough for this. The coach was comfortable and the staff on there too - very conscientious.
