New Delhi on the other hand is referred to as the Imperial city when the British decided to move their capital from Calcutta in 1911.

Perhaps pre-book our city tour and explore famous places in Delhi. Visit the community kitchen at Gurudwara Bangla Sahib - Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is a beautiful temple located in Delhi, India.

Weave through the warren of crooked, congested alleys off Chandni Chowk, one of India’s oldest and busiest bazaars, where you will see the traditional workmanship for which India is well known and still thrives. Visit Raj Ghat, Mahatma Gandhi’s serene and evocative cremation site, and the Jama Masjid, one of the largest mosques in India. The majestic Jama Masjid – meaning World-reflecting’ mosque – is Old Delhi’s principal place of worship, and the largest and most renowned of its kind in India. Built in the 17th century by the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan – who also built the Taj Mahal and the Red Fort – it’s an elaborate structure featuring an expansive geometric base topped with globe-shaped minarets crafted from strips of red sandstone and white marble, and a massive courtyard that can hold up to 25 000 people.

DAY 3 : AGRA
This morning drive to the medieval city of Agra, home of the world-famous Taj Mahal. Agra is one of India’s prime tourist destinations for specifically this reason, though its attractions also extend to an array of other impressive historical sights. The Taj is in a league of its own and needless to say is a must-see for any visitor to the city. Commissioned by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in the 15th century as a memorial to his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, it is an architectural masterpiece of exquisite craftsmanship and perfect proportions. Enjoy your afternoon at leisure or perhaps book an optional tour. Overnight in Agra Optional : Tomb of Itimad Ud Daulah : Visit Itmad-Ud-Daulah, known as the "Baby Taj", the first Mughal structure totally built from marble. It is looked upon as the precursor of the Taj Mahal as far as elaborate carvings and inlay work are concerned. Mohabbat e Taj, Live Show :  A series of play depicting the saga of love. The true and immortal love of Shajahan for Mumtaj Mahal- his beautiful wife; the lavish lifestyle of Mughal era; immaculate hardship of the artisans for 22 years that created the most precious specimen of craftsmanship ‘Mohabbat-the-Taj’ at ‘Kalakriti is exceptionally inviting. The effort to hold up the cultural and historical legacy of India is worth a glance.

DAY 4 : AGRA
Early morning visit the Taj Mahal (closed on Fridays). Often considered the pinnacle of Mughal art in India, the Taj was built by Emperor Shah Jahan for his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. When declaring it a world heritage site, UNESCO described it as “the jewel of Muslim art in India”. There are few words that can describe the magnificence of this monument.  Marvel as light and colors transform this stunning monument in the beautiful rising sun’s rays. Overnight in Agra Optional : Visit to Agra Fort : Known as the Red Fort of Agra, this walled imperial city was founded in 1565 by the Emperor Akbar (1556-1605) and is a well-deserving UNESCO World Heritage site, located just 2.5 kilometers from the famous Taj Mahal. Its palaces, grand mosques and elaborate public hall are crafted from pink-red sandstone and are testament to an era when Indo-Muslim art, strongly marked by influences from Persia, was at its height. Emperor Shah Jahan, who built the Taj Mahal for his deceased wife, was imprisoned by his son Aurangzeb in Agra Fort. He is said to have died in the Musamman Burj, a marble tower he himself built, with one of the most alluring views of the Taj Mahal.

DAY 5 : BHARATPUR
In the morning depart for Bharatpur – a birder’s paradise, en-route visit Fatehpur Sikri an eerily abandoned capital from the Mughal Empire between 1570 and 1586. Akbar built this city to celebrate the birth of his son and future heir to the throne, Emperor Jahangir. While Akbar is believed to have been illiterate, he took great interest in the arts and architecture; Fatehpur Sikri is one of his masterworks. Sadly, it served as capital for little more than a decade, eventually abandoned for lack of accessible water. Upon arrival in Bharatpur check in to the hotel. Enjoy your afternoon at leisure or book an optional visit to the Bird Sanctuary. Overnight in Bharatpur Optional : Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary Tour by Bicycle/Paddle Rickshaws : Enjoy an escorted visit to Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary by bicycle/ paddle rickshaws.

DAY 6 : JAIPUR
After breakfast, depart for the “Pink City” of Jaipur - Rajasthan’s capital, the origin of Jaipur’s nickname becomes immediately apparent as we enter the old city walls and greet the pink-colored buildings that rise at every turn. Jaipur is an excellent place to enjoy unparalleled shopping and people watching. Upon arrival in Jaipur, go on a bespoke shopping tour of Jaipur’s diverse workshops, boutiques and markets. The tour includes the Carpet Weaving Demonstration, Jaipur's shops are known for, among other things, silks, fabrics, gems, Alwari suits (unisex outfits comprised of baggy pants that taper at the ankles and loose-fitting tops), and many more..

DAY 7 : JAIPUR
Enjoy a tour of Jaipur including a visit to the City Palace built between 1729 and 1732 by the ruler of Amber Sawai Jai Singh II. The City Palace covers a large part of the total area of Jaipur; the palace complex was built as if there is a city within a city. A complex of courtyards, gardens, buildings, temples, fountains, pounds, courts, horse stable, workshops, and playgrounds make up the palace grounds. Afterward continue to the impressive Jantar Mantar, an astronomical observatory built in the early 1700s by Maharaja Jai Sing II, the astronomer to which this city owes its name. The term "Jantar Mantar" literally means "instruments for measuring the harmony of the heavens". It houses various architectural and astrological instruments that have caught the interests of astronomers, historians, and architects around the world. It is one of the largest observatories ever built. Spend an afternoon at your own leisure. In the evening enjoy an Aarti Ceremony in Birla Mandir. “Aarti” is a very auspicious Hindu ritual in which we offer our prayers (traditional Hindi song) to God. The Guru or the Master with his devotees, sing the prayers along with the lighting of small lamps. The experience, the view, and the positive vibrations are so inspirational that it is difficult to put into words. Overnight in Jaipur

DAY 8 : JAIPUR
After breakfast spend your day at leisure. The Pink City of India, Jaipur, is considered one of the most spectacular and culturally vibrant destinations in South-East Asia. Jaipur offers the perfect combination of ancient royal heritage and an ultra-modern lifestyle. You may like to visit Nahargarh Fort, Amber Fort, Hawa Mahal, perhaps join our optional tours. Overnight in Jaipur Optional : Experience with the Elephants : Visitors are taken on a journey to the world of elephants and are guided through an unforgettable experience with these magnificent creatures. Visitors can touch, feed, paint, wash, cook and get to know these animals. This tour offers visitors the incredible opportunity to walk hand-in-trunk with elephants. Enter the world of an elephant with an Elephant Back Ride. Bare-back Elephant Back Riding enables us as humans to feel the power and bulk of an elephant in contrast with the quietness, delicateness, and grace of these mammoth creatures’ movement as they walk/glide across the ground. Understand the height at which an elephant stands and experience their environment from an elephant’s perspective. Half day tour of Amber Fort : Amber Fort, officially known as the ‘Amer Palace’, is one of the most famous forts of Rajasthan attracting around 4000 to 5000 visitors a day during peak tourist season. The palace was named after the small town of Amer, where it is situated - only eleven kilometers from Jaipur. Perfectly picturesque, this 16th-century hillside residence is well preserved, boasting grand pavilions and mirrored halls that open onto flourishing gardens and courtyards. Although the palace’s main construction started in 1592 by Maharaja Man Singh, it was added to over the years by successive rulers and continued to be occupied by them until Jaipur was built.
