Today, you embark on a guided tour of New Delhi & beautiful Old Delhi, enjoying a rickshaw ride through the buzzing and lively streets nestled within the Old Town of India's colourful city. Perhaps the most famous sight here is the enormous Jama Masjid, India's largest mosque. This stunning and symmetrical building is a breathtaking sight, standing proud over a spacious courtyard, featuring two 40 meter minarets, and three great gates.

In New Delhi, you will see some of the most spectacular sights of this lively city, including the presidential and Parliament buildings, Humayan's Tomb, and India Gate.

This morning, you enjoy an early morning trip to the Taj Mahal, a UNESCO World Heritage site. This white marble structure was built for Mumtaz Mahal, the beloved wife of the Emperor Shah Jahan, and it is her tomb that is located in the very centre of the building.

Here, enjoy a guided tour and a view of the beautiful sunrise. The morning turns the stunning facade of the Taj Mahal from orange, to pink, to white, in a truly breathtaking display. Return to your hotel for breakfast.

Later on, visit the Agra Fort, an imposing red sandstone complex that also boasts a UNESCO World Heritage listing. After a guided tour here, the rest of your day is at leisure.

  • Breakfast, Dinner

Fatehpur Sikri

Fatehpur Sikri

Explore Fatehpur Sikri this morning. This incredible city was built in the 16th century and was meant to become the capital for the Mughal Empire. After 14 years, it was abandoned due to lack of water, and still stands, almost frozen in time, exactly as it was 400 years ago.

Enjoy some time to explore the ghostly buildings before traveling to Bharatpur, where you enjoy lunch and transfer to the train station for your journey on the Shatabdi Express to Sawai Madhopur. From here, travel to your hotel, the Ranthambore Regency, which is situated near the Ranthambore National Park.

Perhaps the most popular animal in the park, however, is the tiger. This park is one of the very few places in India where it is possible to spot one of these incredible creatures in the wild. Later enjoy a complimentary cooking demonstration before dinner.
