Detailed Description

Your 14-day senior India tour immerses you in the culture and authentic heritage of the Golden Triangle and beyond. This tour will lead you to Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, and the Himalayan city of Shimla. You will have private transfers, luxurious accommodations, and specialists guides for the incredible journey into the heart of this region’s culture and remarkable history. From the Taj Mahal to the City Palace and from the Red Fort to the Hanuman Temple, you will find a country that is beyond the typical.

Your senior tour of India will begin with your arrival in Delhi. You will travel by private transfer to your luxurious accommodation that will act as your base during your three days in the Indian capital. Your knowledgeable guides will lead you on unique tours that delineate the line between Old and New Delhi for insight into cultural, religious, and political differences of the eight distinctive neighborhoods. You will discover famous landmarks, such as the Red Fort, and experience the vibrant daily life of the bazaars. You will then transfer to Agra for two nights. Here, you will have an introduction to the city by way of the Taj Mahal at sunset to view the changing colors of the iconic architecture.

You will stop at Fatehpur Sikri for a half-day tour of the former Mughal capital city to view the sandstone architecture and marble embellishments. Afterward, you will transfer to Jaipur, where you will stay for three nights. The capital of Rajasthan will glow with vibrant color and life, and you will explore the Amber Fort and City Palace complex with specialist guides. You will also have a private sitar lesson when visiting a local village. While in Jaipur, you will also traverse the fascinating bazaars, find mouthwatering cuisine, and embrace the culture of a region that is celebrated for its unique characteristics.

You will return to Delhi for one night in order to catch a flight to Chandigarh, which will then allow you to reach the alpine city of Shimla. You will stay here for three nights. During your time in Shimla, you will embrace the beauty of the foothills and majesty of the soaring peaks. You can visit temples and ride a scenic train for a different perspective of the landscape. The pedestrianized city center will offer a charming ambiance that stems from a mixture of British colonial-era buildings and regional culture. You will then return to Delhi for one night before your private transfer escorts you to the airport for your flight home.
