Classical Golden Triangle… with a twist Guaranteed Departures

This is a classic tour of some of the most iconic places in India… with a twist. Delhi with its frenetic modern life style and wonderful Mughal and Colonial architecture. At Dholpur stay at the Raj Niwas Palace, glory of Rajasthani opulence, visit significant pilgrimage sites and the impressive fort. No tour is complete without visiting the fabled Taj Mahal, especially in the glow of sunrise. Fatehpur Sikri is a stunning reminder of the power of the mighty Mughals, but fallen to the vagaries of nature! Finally visit Jaipur with the spectacular Amber Fort, the outstanding Astronomical Observatory and whimsical Palace of Winds.
