Tour Of Old & New Delhi
This morning you will be collected from Colonels Retreat for a full day tour of both Old and New Delhi.

There may also the chance to take a rickshaw ride in Old Delhi, if time allows.
Agra & The Taj Mahal
After breakfast you will be driven to Agra which takes about three hours. You will have a guided visit of the Red Fort and Baby Taj. The visit to the Taj Mahal is left until late in the afternoon so you can see it as the light changes at sunset. Gorgeous! The image is sure to make a lasting impression, backed up by your photographs.
Taj Mahal & Fatehpur Sikri
We suggest an early start today. It's worth it to visit the Taj Mahal at sunrise, before the crowds arrive. After returning to your hotel for breakfast, you will be driven to Jaipur, stopping at the ancient city of Fatehpur Sikri. This red sandstone ghost town dates back to the 16th century, designed as the Mughal capital, it was occupied for only 14 years, due to the water supply being inadequate. Today it is a perfectly preserved masterpiece of Mughal glory. Continue to Jaipur and check in to your hotel.
Amber Fort & Jaipur

Outwardly imposing, inside the fort is ornate, with walls decorated with murals, frescoes, and paintings or covered with intricate carvings, mosaics and elaborate mirror work. You return to Jaipur for a guided tour of this famous 'Pink City'. Highlights include the palace museum, Sawai Jai Singh's fascinating observatory Jantar Mantar and the beautiful Hawa Mahal or Palace of Winds.
