The package includes all hotel bookings and food arrangement excluding flight bookings.


Delhi, the capital of India provides a unique experience to witness old and new at one place. Red Fort, a huge structure in Redstone was built by Mughal emperor Shahjahan and also housed the Mughal garrison. Jama Masjid is a beautiful expression of Mughal architecture. Near to it is Delhi’s iconic market-Chandani Chauk, which is as old as Red fort always bustling with people and famous for typical old Delhi eateries. As we move ahead towards New Delhi, we witness wide roads and grand govt buildings reminding us of colonial impressions and one of them is India Gate, a memorial to the soldiers who died in world war-1 and 1971 war. Another grand specimen of European architecture is Rashtrapati Bhavan the official residence of the president of India; formerly known as Viceroy’s House with huge rooms and beautiful gardens surrounding it. Finally we pay our homage to father of our nation-Mahatma Gandhi at Rajghat.


Agra is a historical city on the banks of Yamuna River and is famous for its monuments like Tajmahal, Agra fort and Fatehpur Sikri all of which are World heritage sites. Agra fort is grand structure built by Mughal emperor Akbar. It is built in Red stone and was a precursor to Delhi’s Red fort. Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, is beauty in white marble built by Mughal emperor Shahjahan in the memory of his wife Mumtaj Mahal as a token of love. Fatehpur Sikri was also built by Emperor Akbar and dedicated to Sufi saint Salim Chisti. This is built in red stone and was conceived as Mughal capital till scarcity of water defied it.


Jaipur, the pink city founded by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh is full of historical landmarks that will take you back in time. Amer Fort is a majestic structure of Rajputana architecture with terraces, ramparts, beautiful gardens and halls decorated with ivory and mirror chips providing a spectacular view. City Palace the official seat of Jaipur royal family is now a museum with great collection of artifacts used by the royals. Sawai Jai Singh built Jantar Mantar as an observatory to predict the movement of constellation accurately showing the high standard of Indian astronomy. Hawa Mahal an iconic monument symbolizing Jaipur stands in the middle of the city and is a 5 story structure with overhanging windows and latticed screens for the leisure of royal ladies.
