About the Holiday

Itinerary:

Day 1 Delhi

Saturday. On arrival in Delhi you’ll be met at the airport and transferred to our hotel. The rest of today is free to explore India’s capital at leisure before meeting the group and guide at the hotel at 18:00 for a Welcome meeting.

Overnight: Delhi

Day 2 Old & New Delhi

This morning we enjoy a packed day of sightseeing in Old and New Delhi. Visit the UNESCO-listed Humayun’s Tomb and Jama Masjid - India’s oldest and largest mosque. See the eternal flame at Raj Ghat, which was the site of Gandhi’s cremation and is now a place of peaceful contemplation. We also enjoy a thrilling rickshaw ride around the Chandni Chowk bazaar and explore New Delhi. Walk down the Rajpath, formerly known as the ‘King’s Way’ and see the famous India Gate monument. This evening we enjoy a group Namaste dinner.

Overnight: Delhi  |  Breakfast, Dinner

Day 3 Taj Mahal

Delhi - Agra. Travel to Agra today and visit the impressive walled Agra Fort. Our day continues with a tour of the legendary Taj Mahal, India’s most famous site. This iconic white monument was built by the Emperor Shah Jahan in the 17th century in memory of his beloved wife. It is perhaps the most extravagant symbol of love the world has ever seen and has no rival.

Overnight: Agra  |  Breakfast

Day 4 The princely state of Karauli

Agra - Karauli. This morning we’ll visit the eerie former Mughal city of Fatehpur Sikri, which has laid abandoned for more than 400 years. Continue to the beautiful Palace Bhanwar Vilas in Karauli, stopping for lunch en route. The palace is our home for the night and also remains the residence of the current Maharaja of the state. Enjoy free time to explore the palace grounds and if we’re lucky, we may be able to join a tour of the site led by the princess herself. The family is lovingly restoring the Karauli City Palace, which we visit later this afternoon. This evening, perhaps opt to attend the evening Aarti (prayer).

Overnight: Karauli  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 Jaipur

Karauli - Jaipur. We travel to a local school this morning (if open) to meet the pupils and teachers. Our ‘Change for Children’ programme operates here and any donations you can spare help make a real difference to the lives of underprivileged children. You may wish to consider bringing some educational gifts with you on your tour (see trip notes) to give out to the children - they will be greatly appreciated.

Later, we continue to the vibrant UNESCO listed Pink City of Jaipur where the rest of the day is free to explore. Perhaps catch a Bollywood movie at the Raj Mandir Cinema or explore the buzzing walled city centre - look out for monkeys scampering across the rooftops.

Overnight: Jaipur  |  Breakfast

Day 6 Jaipur sightseeing

Enjoy an unforgettable experience early this morning with an optional balloon ride over Jaipur. Sail with the wind over the surrounding region and pass above hill-top forts and regal palaces. Later, enjoy a jeep ride to Amber Fort for a guided tour and visit a cotton weaving house for an authentic demonstration of fabric dyeing.

Delhi
Delhi is sometimes referred to as Dilli, which is the second-largest metropolis in India after Mumbai. Delhi is one of the oldest continually inhabited cities in the world. Having been the capital of several empires in ancient India, Delhi was a major city in the old trade routes from northwest India to the Gangetic Plains.

Delhi lies in northern India. It borders the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh on the south and Haryana on the west. Two prominent features of the geography of Delhi are the Yamuna flood plain and the Delhi ridge.

Delhi has been the capital of India since Independence in 1947, but even before that, the British moved their capital here from Calcutta in 1911. For much of its history, Delhi was the center of power of the various Muslim dynasties that ruled swathes of the subcontinent from the 12th century onwards. Modern Delhi is really two cities: Old Delhi and New Delhi.

Delhi has a semi-arid climate with high variation between summer and winter temperatures. Summers are long, from early April to October, with the monsoon season in between. Winter starts in November and peaks in January and is notorious for its heavy fog, which often disrupts road, air and rail traffic.

The best-known sights are the two buildings that dominate Old Delhi, the Red Fort and Jama Masjid. To the south of Old Delhi and in complete contrast to it, is Rajpath and the buildings on Raisina Hill (Rashtrapati Bhavan and the Secretariat) which form the centerpiece of British New Delhi. Heading south once more, through New Delhi, the visitor will find the bulk of the ancient monuments of medieval Delhi. Humayuns Tomb and the Lodhi Gardens are readily accessible from the center of the city. The Qutb Minar complex, the vast and formidable Tughluqabad and the remains at Haus Khaz are located deeper in the southern suburbs.
