      A labyrinth of historic relics, kitschy bazaars and bustling cityscapes, Delhi is a metropolis of manifold character. India's capital and a major gateway to the country, contemporary Delhi is a stirring amalgamation of fast spiralling skyscrapers, mega structures, historic pride, heritage monuments and an ethereal legacy. But its history isn't without delectable oomph. Home to a vast palate of Nizami, Punjabi, fusion and international cuisines, Delhi is a food lover's haven. With an unending line of food vendors orchestrating a symphony of fragrances, allow the city to treat you to its versatile and rich flavours - from the street food of North India to gourmet fare, roadside dhabas to fine dining.

  • Day 2
    Delhi
    • Enjoy a city tour of Old & New Delhi.

      This morning, following a leisurely breakfast, take in the sights and sounds of Old Delhi with the visit to the magical old town.

      Your introduction to the old city begins with a short drive around the locality enveloping the Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India. Situated on a mound in the heart of the erstwhile capital of the Mughals, this impressive red sand stone structure projects beautifully into the Old Delhi skyline with a courtyard capable of holding 25,000 devotees. Due to a huge flight of stairs, the monument is not accessible. However, after seeing the whole structure, you are not missing much inside the monument as the mosque is quite plain inside. The main charm of the old Delhi is actually around the monument as you get to experience all the hustle-bustle of the old city.

      Later, drive pass the Red Fort. Once the residence of the Mughal Kings till 1857, the Red Fort was the pride of the Mughal Empire, built at the pinnacle of the reign. Head to the calm and serene Raj Ghat - the cremation site of Mahatma Gandhi. Raj Ghat with its sublime expanse of lush green trees affords a perfect ode to one of the greatest souls ever. It is bound to leave you with an aftertaste of inspiration.

      Proceed to visit Bangla Sahib - the Sikh Temple. Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is one of the most prominent Sikh Gurudwara, or Sikh house of worship. If you are lucky and in time, you may not only get the opportunity to visit the main prayer hall but also the community kitchen that feeds free food to a large number of people every day without any discrimination. What's more, major part of the work in the kitchen is done (including cooking service and cleaning) by volunteers.

      This afternoon, we restart our journey with a mesmerizing tour of the City of Djinns with a visit to Imperial Delhi, accompanied by your local guide. Soak in the grandiose of the city with a drive past the imposing 42 meters tall India Gate (war memorial arch), set amidst the sprawling gardens standing alone as it were. With its eternal flame & the names inscribed on its arch, it affords a perfect tribute to 82000 soldiers of the Indian army who died in the First World War.

      We now drive past the Parliament House & the Rashtrapati Bhavan (the President's Residence), a structure epitomizing India's strength, its democratic traditions and secular character.

      Once you're done, your experience at these national monuments will only be outshined as you head next to the magnificent Tomb of Humayun. Considered a forerunner to the Taj Mahal, the Persian red sandstone structure evokes another era and is bound to lure you with its majestic, old world charm.

      We drive through the busy streets of Delhi catching a glimpse of a bustling life not ready to stop at any point of time. We arrive at the 13th century buff sandstone tower, the Qutab Minar. In AD 1199, Qutbu'd-Din Aibak laid the foundation of this masterpiece in stone, to which were added three more storeys by his successor and son-in-law, Shamsu'd-Din Iltutmish.

      Qutub Minar, the leaning tower of India (it leans 2 feet of its axis) located ideally in the lush green complex still stands tall despite being hit several times by lightening and earthquakes. Though, it was the first formal entry of Islamic rule in India, its various structures offer very interesting insights into its architecture.

      Though the day is action packed & busy, you may still get some time to indulge in retail therapy (time permitting) at the designer mall- Emporio.

      Following your fill of sightseeing, return to the hotel.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • The Surya
  • Day 3
    Delhi - Agra
    • Transfer from hotel in Delhi to hotel in Agra, en route visit Itmad-ud-Daulah's Tomb.

      After a hearty breakfast, it's time for a scenic and smooth drive to explore the renowned, ancient capital city of the Mughals - Agra, via the Express Highway (a journey of 202 km / 4.5 hrs drive approx). There are provisions along the way to stop for a cup of tea or coffee along with fairly clean washrooms.

      The reservoir of epic stories and wondrous romance, Agra is enveloped in a tapestry of magic and allure. Known to the world as the city of the Taj Mahal, Agra is a story woven by the Mughals with their political design and artistic propensity. The architectural splendour of the mausoleums, forts and palaces is a vivid reminder of the opulence of the empire that came to shape the ethos of the region for centuries to come. From the Taj Mahal to the massive Agra Fort, Agra is rife with beauty, opulence and an unfound grace.

      The charisma of times of yore, greet you right at the outskirts of the city, as you stop to visit the magnificent Itmad-ud-Daulah's Tomb, popularly known as the 'Baby Taj'. Filled with gardens, mini structures and heritage monuments, this elegant tomb built by Empress Noor Jahan for her father is the first structure of its kind to be constructed of pure marble in Mughal India - said to be a perfect draft of the iconic Taj Mahal.

      After the sightseeing, check in to the hotel.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Crystal Sarovar
  • Day 4
    Agra - Delhi
    • Visit Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, followed with a transfer to hotel in Delhi.

      Your day begins after a sumptuous breakfast with a visit to the Taj - the epitome of marvellous Mughal architecture. Celebrated for its structural magnificence and aesthetic beauty, partake in the poetry of the beautiful Taj and the lost love stories that surround the mausoleum, as it sits reminiscing by the gurgling Yamuna. A symphony in white marble, this is truly a tribute to eternal love.

      In order to protect the Taj Mahal from vehicular pollution, tourist vehicles are allowed only up to the designated parking zone, which is a short distance away from the entrance. Here onwards, we are expected to board battery operated vehicles (golf cart / bus) to reach the main entrance of the Taj and back.

      We now head off to Agra Fort, an outstanding example of Mughal art and architecture. An impregnable military structure built by Akbar, the Agra Fort luxuriated with the elegance, lavishness and majesty of an imperial palace. Relive the era as you step into the seat of power and the stronghold of the Mughal Empire. Absorb the glory of this imposing, red sandstone structure,as you cruise conveniently through its palaces, pavilions and courtyards.

      In the evening, a scenic drive back to Delhi (202 km / 6.5 hrs approx) allows you soak in all that you have seen and experienced in your trip across the myriad landscapes of Indian grandeur. You could take refreshment stops along the way.
