More information about some of the included visits:-
Old Delhi, once the capital of Islamic India, is a labyrinth of narrow lanes lined with crumbling havelis and the largest mosque in India. In contrast, the imperial city of New Delhi built by the British during the Raj, is composed of spacious, tree-lined avenues and imposing government buildings, the India Gate, official residence of The President of India and Parliament House.
Located on the banks of Yamuna River, the city of Agra was a former capital of the Mughals. In the 16th and 17th centuries it developed as a centre of art, culture, learning and commerce. Agra houses several prestigious UNESCO World Heritage sites including the majestic Agra Fort and the iconic Taj Mahal. The city of Agra with its laid-back style of living, treasured architecture, jewellery and handicrafts, is an unmissable day trip from Delhi.
Jaipur is the capital of the desert state of Rajasthan, the land of Kings. Enclosed by city walls and protected by a range of forts on surrounding hills, the city of Jaipur was conceived not just as the military retreat of feudal warlords but as a commercial city, a business centre of thriving enterprise. Landmarks such as the Maharaja's City Palace, the Palace of the Winds and the World Heritage Site of Jantar Mantar (Observatory) are only part of what this city has to offer.
