10 Days Golden Triangle Tour with Shimla Hills

Visit Delhi, Agra, Jaipur – and the 'Queen of Hill Stations

Though India can be chaotic at times, it's one travel destination that will amaze you with its colourful exuberance. If you have already planned to see India inside out, the best advice is to begin with the Golden Triangle cities – Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. Located at roughly an equal distance from each other, these cities introduce India in a fantastic way. From bustling markets to tranquil religious places, the Golden Triangle will leave a long-lasting impression on your mind. If you love the hills, it would be a good idea to combine your trip to Delhi, Agra and Jaipur with a trip to Shimla, one of the finest hill stations in northern India and the capital of Himachal Pradesh.

Start your day with a wonderful trip to both Old Delhi and New Delhi. While in Old Delhi, recall the glorious days of the Mughal era. New Delhi, on the other hand, is dotted with numerous modern-day architectural marvels. After you have soaked up the fantastic mix of the old and the new, proceed to Agra where the surreal Taj Mahal awaits your arrival. Also, visit the Agra Fort where Aurangzeb had imprisoned his father Shah Jahan, who built the Taj Mahal. Your next halt is Jaipur where you'll see a number of gigantic forts and exquisite palaces of the Rajput era. Visit Fatehpur Sikri, the 'Royal Ghost Town' en route. While in Jaipur, enjoy a visit to the local markets which sell a wide range of beautifully handcrafted items. Now, get back to Delhi so that you can undertake a road journey to Shimla, aptly termed as the 'Queen of Hill Stations'. Enjoy a fun-filled sightseeing tour in Shimla and visit the very famous Mall Road, Scandal Point and Christ Church. Also go for an excursion tour to Kufir, another picturesque hill station in Himachal Pradesh.

Finally, get back to Delhi for your onward journey or to fly back home.

We went on a 10 days trip to India in June month and had an amazing trip. No comments on services it was outstanding, right from the day i started enquiring about the trip till we departed back from Delhi. Your staff member Amit was assisting us for everything, very nice and co-operative person. All the things promised were provided. We took the 4 star property hotel package and all the hotels offered were quiet decent and in our budget. The driver Mr. Singh stayed with us throughout the trip and drove very safe. The tour guide provided to us is everywhere was very information with good command on English. Thanks to Max Holidays for making our trip memorable.
