  • Day 1 Arrive Agra

  • Day 2 Agra

  • Day 3 Agra-Jaipur

  • Day 4 Jaipur

  • Day 5 Jaipur

  • Day 6 Depart Jaipur

  • Day 1
    Arrive Agra
    • Arrival transfer from the designated location to hotel in Agra, en route visit Itmad-ud-Daulah's Tomb.

      Welcome to Agra! An Enable Travel representative shall pick you up at any of the designated locations in Agra. The representative will guide your wheelchair to the awaiting vehicle, facilitating your smooth transfer to your hotel and assist with check in.

      En route, 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 is the first structure of its kind to be constructed of pure marble in Mughal India - a perfect draft of the iconic Taj Mahal.

    • The rest of the day is at leisure to explore the city on your own.

    • Meals included: None (meals on your own)
    • Crystal Sarovar
  • Day 2
    Agra
    • Discover the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort.

      After a sumptuous breakfast visit 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.

      Accompanied by your local guide, seated in your wheelchair, you can comfortably bridge the gap between the drop-off point and the entrance to the Taj Mahal complex. However, if possible, subject to having obtained prior permission on the day of visit, our vehicle can go right up to the entrance gate of the Taj Mahal complex.

      The complex itself is very well ramped right up to the last platform. But there is no wheelchair accessibility to the final enclosure where the cenotaphs lie.

      We don't think you would mind taking a washroom break before heading 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 most of its well ramped palaces, pavilions and courtyards.

    • The rest of the day is at leisure to explore Agra on your own.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Crystal Sarovar
  • Day 3
    Agra-Jaipur
    • Transfer from hotel in Agra to hotel in Jaipur, en route visit Fatehpur Sikri.

      Following breakfast, take the scenic road from the capital of the Mughals to the capital of the Kachwaha Rajputs - Jaipur (a journey of 230 km / 7 hours approx.).

      Just before leaving our Agra hotel, it would be a great idea to use washrooms, as those are not very likely to be available en route to Jaipur. Make a stop at the deserted fort of Fatehpur Sikri, a brilliant fusion of both Hindu and Mughal architecture. Located just 40 km from Agra, it is an enchanting folly that changed the landscape of the region, a mesmerising capital city built by Akbar in honour of Sufi saint Sheikh Salim Chisti only to be deserted within 14 years to fall to slow, poetic ruin. Ramps are placed at appropriate spots, ensuring comfortable mobility throughout the monument complex.

      On arrival in Jaipur, proceed to check in to your hotel.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Hilton
  • Day 4
    Jaipur
    • Visit Amber Palace Fort and photo stop at Hawa Mahal.

      After a hearty breakfast, begin an exciting day around the city with a photo stop at the beautiful Hawa Mahal. It would be a great idea to carry a sunhat, sunscreen and sunglasses during sightseeing, and use washrooms just before you head out.

      The Palace of Winds is a five-storey spectacle with a dazzling pyramidal facade and overhanging windows. The journey now continues on to the ancient Amber Palace Fort. Perched atop a ridge just outside Jaipur city, Amber is surrounded by fortified battlements, overlooking the Maota Lake. Built in the 17th century, it was once the seat of power before the birth of Jaipur's City Palace. Today, it stands as a silent spectator to a bygone era, overlooking the ruins and sprawling crenulated wallsspread over the Aravalli.

      Though not long, through a winding uphill and a bit rough drive, you are taken in your car up to the main gate. You can tour sections of the palace that is famous for its excellence in design and ornate decor.

      With a bit of assistance through a steep ridged ramp, you can easily enter the palace and explore the second courtyard. The palace staff is happy to carry you in your wheelchair to some of the other areas of the palace connected with a reasonable number of steps. There are also places where wheelchair accessibility is possible through some easy ramps.

      Within the complex, see the Ganesh Pol, an awe-inspiring gateway painted with beautiful images of the elephant-headed god, Ganesh. You will not help but notice as you move through the halls of the princes the merging of Rajput and Mughal architectural styles making its way into the apartments, gardens and landscaping of the palace.

    • Take the rest of the day at leisure to explore and soak in the city.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Hilton
  • Day 5
    Jaipur
    • Explore the city of Jaipur.

      Spend a memorable day exploring the royal city of Jaipur at a leisurely pace.

      The day begins with a tour of the Pink City, an abode of Maharajas. The highlights of the tour include a visit to sections of the City Palace a repository of Rajasthani artifacts and culture. It houses a remarkable collection of Rajasthani costumes, and armoury of Mughals and Rajputs, an art gallery, intricately designed carpets, royal paraphernalia and rare astronomical works. Next, proceed to the awe-inspiring Jantar Mantar, a stone astrological and astronomical observatory built in the 18th century. Known for its ingenuity, this scientific 'playground' paved the way for modern astronomy.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Hilton
