Combining the enthralling cities of the Golden Triangle with Ranthambore’s tigers, this tour takes you from historic Old Delhi to Agra’s Red Fort and Taj Mahal, and Jaipur’s pink palaces, and includes the birdlife of Keoladeo National Park

With majestic monuments, beautiful gardens, wildlife reserves, and ‘ghost town’ ruins, this is a vibrant and varied tour through Northern India’s unique landmarks and untamed landscapes. It begins in Old Delhi, with its cultural blend of colonial buildings and countless relics of a chequered past; and travels by train to Agra for India’s most famous monument, the huge and haunting Taj Mahal, lauded by UNESCO as a masterpiece of the world’s heritage. Travelling by road from here, the journey continues to the relics of medieval Fatehpur Sikri city, eerily deserted for 400 years; and to Bharatpur, best known for the former Maharajas’ hunting grounds on its doorstep, now the UNESCO listed Keoladeo National Park, and considered one of the world’s best bird reserves. Ranthambore National Park reveals its past with a 10th-century fort, ancient tombs and temples, but today the tigers rule the forested gorges, their numbers increasing, along with your chances of sighting them. Pockets of calm punctuate a chaos of street scenes in Jaipur, home to the huge Amber Fort; and enroute back to Delhi, we visit the gorgeous Mughal gardens of Samode Bagh.
