The Golden Triangle

India - North India - Rajasthan - Your tailor-made trip

Day 1

Welcome to India! You are greeted at the airport by your private driver with a "Namaste": welcome in Hindi. After pickup, your Travel Expert will share with you the latest useful information and tips for your Golden Triangle trip. Arrive at your hotel and either start to explore Delhi or have a rest to prepare for your vacation in India. Overnight at the hotel.
Day 2

AM - New Delhi / PM- Old Delhi
Start your day exploring New Delhi; visit Hamuyan's Tomb and the Lodhi Gardens. On the way to shop at Khanna Market, witness the spectacular street art in the Lodhi Art District. Next, meet your guide for an Old Delhi street food tour. While sampling the best of Delhi’s local specialities at our favourite vendors, learn about Delhi’s history and absorb the hustle and bustle of the streets as you visit different locations by rickshaw. When full from eating delicious food, take a rest back at your hotel to prepare for the next step of your Golden Triangle tour tomorrow.
Day 3

270 km - 5h drive
Today your driver will pick you up for your journey to Jaipur. On the way, enjoy an amazing lunch and tour at a 553-year-old medieval Fort-Palace built on the Aravalli hills. This Fort Palace takes you on a grand experience which truly transports you back into the past five centuries in India (if you desire, an overnight at the fort can also be arranged). Journey on and arrive in the evening at your Heritage Hotel in Jaipur, where members of the erstwhile ruling family welcome you personally as their honoured guest.
Day 4

After breakfast, take a jeep to visit the imposing Amber Fort. The fort’s majestic appearance and its geographical advantages make it a special place to visit. The fort presents a fascinating blend of Hindu and Muslim architecture; built using red sandstone and white marble. In the afternoon, explore the Pink City by rickshaw and visit the city monuments including the City Palace and local street markets. Overnight at a hotel in Jaipur.

An extra night can be added in Jaipur to visit this lively city in a much more relaxed mamnner.
Day 5

250 km - 5/6h drive
Start your morning early with a Pink City cycling tour. Along the way, you will stop to climb to the rooftops for a magnificent view of the Palace of Winds and to enjoy some chai masala with the locals in the morning vegetable market before cycling on to more sights. After cycling, enjoy breakfast back at your hotel before departing with your driver on to Agra. Stop by the Abhaneri Stepwell and upon arrival at your hotel in Agra, get your first glimpse of the iconic Taj Mahal.
Day 6

200 km - 3/4h drive
Wake up at dawn to witness one of the highlights of your trip! At sunrise, the marble of the Taj Mahal encrusted with precious stones is shaded with golden tones, revealing like a mirage, one of the seven wonders of the world. Be dazzled by the beauty of this tomb which was built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jehan in the image of his deceased queen, an enduring monument to love. After breakfast, drive back to Delhi. Overnight at a hotel in Delhi.
Day 7

If the schedule of your international flight allows, take the opportunity to make the last visits that are important to you, browse the bazaars to find souvenirs to bring back or sip a last chai masala tea. Your private driver will accompany you to the airport. Our services are coming to an end. Do not hesitate to contact one of our North India Travel Experts who will be happy to answer your questions and your requests.
