Golden Triangle Delhi Agra Jaipur
Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, Tours
8 day/7 night stay from €2,295
Golden Triangle Delhi, Agra Jaipur – encompasses the perfect combination of sights for the first time visitor to India, or indeed the repeat visitor who has not had the opportunity to experience some of these incredible places.
The journey begins with India’s vast capital, Delhi, which is made up of the ‘old city’ with its bustling markets and stunning Mughal architecture, and New Delhi with wide tree lined avenues, beautiful gardens, and imposing buildings designed by renowned British architect Edwin Lutyens.
Moving on, visit Agra to experience the timeless beauty of the Taj Mahal, and then on to Jaipur, also known as the ‘Pink City’. Jaipur is the capital of the desert state of Rajasthan, dotted with forts and palaces, many still home to Maharajas. It is also home to the elaborate City Palace with its museum brimming with historic memorabilia, an ancient observatory and the hilltop fort of Amber.
