India's Golden Triangle

Explore the most iconic monuments of India from the Taj Mahal, Amber and Agra Forts to palaces and abandoned cities including classic hotels and special Indian experiences

Most people when travelling to a country for the first time want to take in all the major sights and yet also experience something more authentic. Our tour enriches a classic first-time itinerary with experiences that transport its participants closer to the heart of the country.

The ‘Golden Triangle’ is formed by Jaipur, Agra and Delhi, including the Amber Fort, Jaipur’s amazing astronomical Observatory and the icon of the entire subcontinent, the magical Taj Mahal. The rich heritage revealed derives from the rule of Mughals, Maharajas and indeed the British.

The railway stations, present a tableau as rich as a bazaar, with all classes and castes on its thronging platforms – ‘Passage to India’ springs to mind as one waits to travel (Chair Class) through the Indian countryside.

Discover Emperor Akbar’s deserted city at Fatehpur Sikri and explore Delhi’s rich history including the Qutab Minar of the Delhi Sultanate and the regalia and artistry of the National Museum.

Time to relax or see even more of India!

No one can cover all of India on one tour, so why not make the most of your time in India by choosing further experiences?

We invite you to customise your tour by adding one or more extensions from our great range shown on the following pages. Relax in a resort or discover more of India with our specialist guides.

Also please consider adding extra nights before the tour if you would like to draw breath after the flight to India or stay on to reflect, relax or explore independently. Extra nights can also be added to most extensions. Please talk to one of our knowledgeable Personal Travel Experts to let us know what you are looking for and they will work out the best way. Sometimes extra transfers, internal flights and nights are recommended or needed, and sometimes two extensions can be combined into a more logical sequence.
