Tour Details

Rajasthan, “land of lords”, anachronistic, represents India in its most typical, most picturesque and most romantic aspects. The culture of Rajasthan resisted the invaders as evidenced by the fortresses, the palaces with strange charm and extravagant luxury, the debauchery of colors, the sense of pride and honor, mustaches sported by men, saris of bright colors and silver jewelry worn by women. It is a culturally rich state whose traditions reflect the way of life of ancient India.
The tower is a fusion of urban and rural cultures of the most fascinating regions of Rajasthan – starting with Delhi, the old as the new, chaotic capital where the populous markets are next to the colonial palaces, the glass buildings with the dark cobbled alleys of misery. Then drive to Agra- the city of legendary Taj Mahal, the most beautiful monument erected out of love. Drive Jaipur then, the pink city which shelters the extraordinary Palace of the Winds and where the elephant safari is part of the local tradition. From here let’s fly to Udaipur often called “Venice of the East” is the most romantic city of Rajasthan. And drive to Jodhpur – the blue city, from where most of the houses in the old city are painted blue

Please note check-in time @ 1400 hours, early check-in subject to availability).
We welcome you in the capital city of India, for a journey across the fascinating history- markers of medieval north India. Wars were fought and rulers changed in Delhi but ordinary lives were lived in relative continuity. Glimpses of these can be seen even today as the character of the city underwent massive changes in the last decades. In the lands fabled to have seen seven cities, signs of the old are continuously jostling with the new, presenting an ever-fascinating panorama. We welcome you to its chaos and stability, into its steadfastness and its impatience and into a delightful rainbow of amalgamation, producing a world completely its own.

Day 2IN DELHI

EASTBOUND DISCOVERIES SPECIAL EXPERIENCE – A SPECIAL PRAYER CEREMONY IN A HINDHU TEMPLE BEFORE YOU START YOUR INCREDIBLE TOUR OF INDIA
An arti is a prayer ceremony and a fundamental part of Hindu culture. Representing the elements of fire, earth, water and air as well as the senses, the priest has a tray with a diya (lamp), offerings of food, water, flowers, incense and a small bell. An ‘Aarti lamp’ is passed around a deity and is generally accompanied by the singing of songs in praise of that particular god. In doing so, the plate or lamp is supposed to acquire the power of the deity which is then passed around the people when the priest circulates the plate or lamp to all those present. The ceremony ends with everyone sharing the food which has been offered to the Gods.
Arrive into Delhi international airport (Flight details to advised)

Later proceed for the sightseeing tour of Old Delhi. Begin your day with an exploration starting in Old Delhi, visiting the Jama Masjid, the royal mosque built by the Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan in 1656. It is one of the largest and most beautiful mosques in the world and is constructed in red sandstone and white marble. The main prayer hall has a seating capacity of more than 20,000 worshippers.
Combined with old Delhi Tour on a tricycle rickshaw in the Indian metropolis of Delhi, where fast-paced, cell-phone toting characters out of Monsoon Wedding live side by side with barefoot rickshaw wallahs cycling past roaming cows in the road, you will visit the largest spice market in all of Asia, the bustling Khari Baoli bazaar. At once, all your senses will be over-stimulated to an amplified level.
Red Fort (From Outside)- The largest of old Delhi’s monuments is the Lal Quila, or the Red Fort, the thick red sandstone walls of which, bulging with turrets and bastions, have withstood the vagaries of time, and nature.

EASTBOUND DISCOVERIES SPECIAL EXPERIENCE: Visit of Sikh Temple (Gurudwara Bangla Sahib)
The Gurudwara Bangla Sahib (the temple of the followers of the Sikh religion). The Sikhs, which means “disciples”, are one of the country’s most recognizable groups. Beards and turbans give them a distinctive look. Unlike Hinduism, they believe in one God, and that everyone, regardless of their station in life, should do “seva” or rendering social services. This resulted in the “Langar” or community kitchen, where every member of the religion considers it an honor to come and put in a couple of hours cooking thousands of Indian breads, making huge vat loads of curry, to feed the poor and underprivileged. The food served at the Langar is simple, but fresh and wholesome.
Overnight at the hotel.

Day 3DELHI – AGRA

Agra is globally renowned as the city of the Taj Mahal. But this royal Mughal city has, in addition to the legendary Taj, many monuments that epitomize the high point of Mughal architecture. In the Mughal period, in the 16th and 17th centuries, Agra was the capital of India. It was here that the founder of the dynasty, Babar, laid out the first formal Persian garden on the banks of the river Yamuna. Here, Akbar, his grandson raised the towering ramparts of the great Red Fort. Within its walls, Jahangir built rose- red palaces, courts and gardens, and Shah Jahan embellished it with marble mosques, palaces and pavilions of gem-inlaid white marble. The crowning glory of the city is obviously the Taj, a monument of love and imagination that represents India to the world.
And then visit the Agra Fort, occupying a dominant site on the bend of River Yamuna, the high walled red-sandstone structure was built by Akbar between 1565 and 1573 and thereafter structures within it were added by successive emperors.
