The picturesque capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur is instantly recognisable for it’s pink-washed buildings, a colour associated with hospitality in Rajput culture. This beautiful city, along with Agra and Delhi, form what is known as the Golden Triangle of India's tourist circuit. Jaipur is a city where royalty still lives in the grandeur of its palaces, where fighting for the honour of the clan has never been a need but a way of life, and where treating guests as gods has been a tradition from time immemorial. There is a timeless appeal to Jaipur's colourful bazaars, where you can shop for Rajasthani textiles and trinkets. The beautifully laid out gardens and parks, attractive monuments and heritage hotels, once the residence of Maharajas, are all worth a look.

Jaipur (Standard Or Premium Hotel Option) Meals included: Breakfast;Dinner

Today enjoy a full day sightseeing tour of Jaipur - the picturesque capital of Rajasthan. To start off take a morning excursion to Amber Fort. Amber Fort is located 11km from Jaipur and was the old fort of the Kachwaha clan of Amber. The fort is built with white marble and red sandstone and look even more attractive because of the Maota Lake in the foreground. The fort in itself is a beautiful sight to behold, but it's clear reflection on the lake is so beautiful, it seems like an illusion. This afternoon take part in a city tour visiting the City Palace, the former royal residence built in a blend of the Rajasthani and Mughal styles. Jantar Mantar, is the largest of the five observatories built by Sawai Jai Singh. The Hawa Mahal or the Palace of Winds was constructed for the royal ladies to watch royal processions without being seen.

After breakfast, depart for Agra. On the way, visit Chandi Baori Step Well, the well is located opposite a temple known as Harshat Mata temple. It is believed that the Chand Baori step well has a religious connection and that’s the reason to build it in front of the temple. Continue onto Fatehpur Sikri which was made a UNESCO world heritage site due to its stunning imperial complex of pavilions and palaces spread amongst a large abandoned 'city' (37kms from Agra). On arrival to Agra, check-in to your hotel. Agra is the quintessential Mughal City, where the world marvels at the epitome of love, beauty and sacrifice, the Taj Mahal one of the wonders of the world. So overwhelming is the magic monument, that Agra has been immortalised, as the City of the Taj. As visitors walk down the narrow bustling streets, they cannot help but wonder, if the man contentedly smoking a hookah, is a direct descendent of some bygone Mughal.

Agra (Standard Or Premium Hotel Option) Meals included: Breakfast

Customer Reviews

This photo was from a recent trip to India with a very small group of Australians. WHAT A WONDERFUL TRIP. I cannot praise enough our guide and the warm hospitality of the Indian people. Our guide went out of his way to make our tour absolutely one to remember. We were matched with people the same age and meals and hotels were of a very high standard. Would do another tour with trip a deal in a heartbeat. This is a photo of our fun loving group.

Linda S, NSW

India, definitely a land of contrasts. A marvellous trip, well organised with some very special people in our group. It was a real eye opener, and we were shown so many amazing sites and sights, that I will always fondly remember. The jewel of the crown, was seeing the fabulous Taj Mahal. Many thanks for making the trip so memorable.
