Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Depart UK

Depart the UK and board an overnight flight to Delhi.

Days 2-3
Arrive Delhi

Arrive in Delhi, India's frenetic capital city, where you'll be met and transferred to your hotel for a two-night stay.

Spend the next day exploring Delhi, a fascinating blend of old and new and home to some of the country's most important landmarks. You'll begin your day in Old Delhi where you'll discover narrow, twisting lanes filled to bursting with crowded bazaars. Elsewhere you'll find ancient monuments and exquisite architecture dating back as far as the Mughal Empire, the most famous of which – Delhi's magnificent Red Fort – is certainly one of India's most impressive sights.

Head to New Delhi in the afternoon, travelling by the Delhi Metro, a new innovation that's revolutionised the city's crowded transport network. In New Delhi you'll discover wide boulevards, impressive government buildings and some of the city's most recognisable religious monuments, such as Humayun's Tomb and Qutub Minar, which reflect the ethnic and religious diversity of India's capital.

Day 4
Agra

A spectacular white marble mausoleum, the Taj Mahal was built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan between 1632 and 1653, in memory of his third wife Mumtaz Mahal and is recognised the world over as a poignant monument to love. Spend your morning wandering the lush gardens that surround the mausoleum, taking in the breathtaking design and craftsmanship that takes its influence from Islamic, Indian, Persian and Ottoman architectural styles.

The journey will take around six or seven hours, passing through the arid landscapes of India's northern plains. You'll stop along the way at Fatehpur Sikri, the imperial city of the Mughal dynasty between 1571 and 1584. Arrive in Jaipur this evening, check into your hotel and enjoy some free time to relax.

The following day you'll enjoy a full day exploring Jaipur – Rajasthan's most colourful capital. Begin your day with a half-day tour of the awe-inspiring Amber Fort – one of the finest examples of Rajput architecture in India. Then, spend the afternoon on a city tour, visiting the City Palace Museum, with its fine collection of Rajput and Mughal art, the City Palace Complex located within the ancient city walls, the fascinating Jantar Mantar, an observatory dating back to 1726AD, and the Hawa Mahal or Palace of the Winds, a five storied façade with intricate carvings, latticed screens and a series of ornate domes and spires.
