India's Golden Triangle

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.

Cocktail at the Polo Bar and dinner at the Rajput Room of Rambagh Palace, former home of the Maharaja of Jaipur. Enjoy a cooking demonstration and dinner with a local family; tea at a colonial house and sunset rooftop drink with views of the Taj Mahal in Agra.

This was an excellent tour (Rating 5) and one that I would recommend wholeheartedly.
