The fabled Golden Triangle is the classic introduction to the vast and beautiful India. Bustling streets, havens of tranquillity and architectural wonders await as you dive headlong into the vibrant sights, sounds and experiences of northern India.
Combining the best India has to offer - from the deserts of Rajasthan in the north, to the tranquil backwaters of Kerala in the south, the Bollywood city of Mumbai and the historic caves at Ajanta and Ellora. This tour will leave you with a strong sense of the history, culture, and geography of this diverse country.
See the bustling bazaars of Delhi and Jaipur, the magnificent Taj Mahal at Agra, the deserts of Rajasthan, the bathing Ghats of Varanasi and the erotic temples of Khajuraho. Discover more by adding a visit to the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal.
Draped across a hillside 11 kilometres outside of Jaipur, the Amber Fort is one of the great hillforts of Rajasthan and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built in the 16th century it gives a taste of the life of a maharaja.
At the very heart of the city, this complex of buildings, gardens and courtyards is still the home of the royal family today. The architecture is from a range of eras with Rajasthani and Mughal influences.
A pink sandstone edifice, one of Jaipur’s most recognisable, the Hawa Mahal, or Palace of the Winds, allowed the women of the royal family watch the action on the bustling streets below whilst still observing purdah.
Maharaja Jai Singh had an obsession with astrology and developed an observatory of weird and wonderful instruments that he designed to measure the heavens. Jantar Mantar is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Jaipur is a brilliant place to hit the markets and try out your haggling skills. Browse the stacks of silver and gold, jewellery, gems, handmade shoes, textiles and all that’s inbetween. The streets of the old town are where you’ll find the best bargains.
