India's Golden Triangle Tour
Have the Time of Your Life in Delhi, Agra and Jaipur
India is a land of vast geography and deep history. If you are a first-time visitor and need a befitting introduction to India, you should start with Delhi (a Union Territory of India), Agra (located in Uttar Pradesh) and Jaipur (located in Rajasthan). These three cities present three different aspects of India - beautifully. Delhi is a wonderful mix of the old and the new. Agra is where the Taj Mahal is located. Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan, is redolent with the history of the Rajpur era.
The Extensive Golden Triangle, designed by Max Holidays, is aimed at getting the best out of the three cities – Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. If you haven't been to India before, this is the tour that you need. After your arrival in Delhi, set out on a fun-packed sightseeing tour of both Old and New Delhi. In Old Delhi, visit such popular attractions as the Jama Masjid, Red Fort and Raj Ghat. Also, take a rickshaw ride through Chandni Chowk, which is where the vibrancy of Old Delhi comes to life. New Delhi, on the other hand, is home to the Qutab Minar, Humayun's Tomb, India Gate and the President's Palace among others. Next, drive to Agra where you'll see the Taj Mahal, the Agra Fort and the Tomb of Itmad-ud-Daulah, also referred to as the 'Baby Taj'. Visit Fatehpur Sikri, founded in 1569 by none other than the emperor Akbar.
Your next halt is Jaipur, famously known as the 'Pink City'. Start your day in Jaipur with a fun-filled elephant ride up to the Amber Fort. Later, visit the Hawa Mahal, the Jantar Mantar Observatory and the City Palace Museum. Spend some time shopping around the colourful local markets of Jaipur. The stone work, textile work and jewelry work of Jaipur are famous all across India and outside. Finally, get back to Delhi for your connecting flight or journey back home.
