The Golden Triangle package is one of the best tour packages for someone travelling for the first time to India. This illustrious and admired Golden Triangle of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, has its own mystic beauty and magical surprises that none of the areas can compare.
Places to Visit
On arrival at the airport, you’ll be met by one of our representatives outside the exit gate. Just keep a look out for a friendly man holding a placard with your name on it. The representative will take you to your car, from where you’ll be whisked off to your hotel. The rest of the day is yours to do with as you please.
Enjoy the hustle and bustle of the oldest part of Delhi. Poke around the shops, marvel at the architecture, and come shoulder to shoulder with men and oxen pulling carts full of their wares.
This walk around Old Delhi will last for about four hours, taking in Shri Digambar Jain Lal Mandir (Jain temple), Gauri Shankar Mandir (Hindu temple), Sunehri Masjid (Golden mosque), Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib (Sikh temple), Jalebi Wala (sweet shop),Dariba Kalan (jewellery market) and Paranthe Wali Gali (paratha lane).
Two wonderful Mughal monuments (Qutab Minar and Humayun’s Tomb) and a couple of British structures (India Gate and Rashtrapati Bhavan) make this a real journey into Delhi’s past.
At the start of your tour you’ll be driven to the Qutab Minar, where you’ll spend an hour looking around the monuments. Following this, there’ll be about a 30 minute drive before you arrive at Humayun’s Tomb. You can spend around 60-90 minutes here –exploring the monuments and relaxing in the beautiful grounds – before being taken to Lutyens’ Delhi. Here you will visit India Gate and Rashtrapati Bhavan.
The driver will take you to Agra (03 Hrs / 230 KMS Approx.). Along the way you’ll have the opportunity to take breaks for refreshments and photography.
Half Day Taj Mahal and Agra Fort (Agra)
Visiting the Taj Mahal is an absolute must during your time in India. The vast beauty and intricate marble-work of its architecture complements the romance of its back story perfectly.
Contrasting the delicate beauty of the Taj Mahal is the robust splendor of Agra Fort – just two kilometers (1.3 miles) down the road. The red sandstone turrets, impenetrable walls and hidden corridors make it a fascinating place to explore.
On arriving at the Taj Mahal, your guide will show you around, giving you an overview of the monument’s history, as well as sharing some interesting anecdotes. With the guide’s assistance, you’ll be free to wander around the grounds, examine the architecture, take pictures and step inside the Mahal itself. After two hours, the driver will meet you and take you to Agra Fort.
Fifteen minutes after leaving the Taj Mahal, you’ll arrive at Agra Fort and spend some time here before the tour ends.
Optional: If you’d like to see the centuries-old craft of marble-working in action, then mention this to the driver and he’ll happily take you to one of the workshops before the end of the tour. Please note, this optional activity will add an hour to the duration of your tour.
Just 37 km (23 miles) from Agra, Fatehpur Sikri is one of the most overlooked wonders of India. This awe-inspiring ancient city of red sandstone is deserving of half a day sightseeing all to itself.
After a one-hour drive you’ll arrive at Fatehpur Sikri. Here you’ll be shown around by your guide, as he gives you an overview of the city’s fascinating history, as well as answering any questions you may have.
