Your Itinerary

Day 1 - UK to Delhi
Depart London Heathrow on your scheduled flight to Delhi International Airport.

Day 2 - Delhi - Lunch & Dinner
On arrival in Delhi, you will be met by your local guide and transferred to your hotel.After settling in, a short tour of the beautifully planned city of New Delhi will follow. Offering you a taste of its imperial glory, you'll drive past the India Gate, President's House, Parliament Building and visit the Birla Temple, made purely out of 2,000 tons of Rajasthani white marble.

Day 3 - Delhi - Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
A full day tour of Delhi commences after breakfast, beginning with the historic Old Delhi in the morning. Lying side by side, Old Delhi dates back to the Mughal period, whilst New Delhi was built just over a hundred years ago. Travelling through the narrow and crowded streets on a rickshaw will transport you back in time, whilst a visit to the regal Red Fort gives you a sense of the lavish life once led by the former rulers. After lunch in a local restaurant, your tour will continue on to New Delhi to see the Mahatma Gandhi memorial and the 12th century Qutab Minar, the tallest stone tower in India.

Day 4 - Delhi to Agra - Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
After breakfast you will be driven to Agra arriving at your hotel in time for lunch. Despite being a small city, Agra was once the capital of the mighty Mughal dynasty whose strength manifested itself in the huge forts and buildings built to maintain its power. During the afternoon, you will visit the vast red sandstone Agra Fort, which was built by the Mughals in 1573 and boasts gigantic pavilions, grand palaces and spectacular courtyards.
Day 5 - Agra & Ranthambore - Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
This magical day starts after breakfast with a tour of one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Taj Mahal. Words do not do this remarkable palace justice; it really must be seen to appreciate its stupendous beauty. Taking 17 years to build, the heartbroken Mughal Emperor Shahjahan dedicated this monument of love to his deceased wife to enshrine her mortal remains. Following this, you will begin your journey to Ranthambore National Park where you will spend the night.
Day 6 - Ranthambore - Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Spread over 1,344 square kilometres, Ranthambore National Park is one of the biggest and most renowned national parks in all of India. Once a famous hunting ground for the gallant rulers of Jaipur, today it is home to a variety of species including tigers, leopards, striped hyenas, jackals, jungle cats and more. Depart your hotel for an early morning jungle safari followed by breakfast and lunch back at your hotel then some leisure time where you can take advantage of the hotel's outdoor swimming pool. A second safari trip will follow in the afternoon to visit further areas of the park.

Day 7 - Ranthambore & Jaipur - Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Today you will journey to the Pink City of Jaipur, which got its name from the distinctive earthy red coloured buildings, painted to emulate the red sandstone architecture of the ancient Mughal cities. Lunch and dinner will be served at your hotel and you will have the afternoon and evening as free time to settle in and relax.
Day 8 - Jaipur - Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Begin your first day in Jaipur with a visit to the spectacular Amber Fort, the ancient capital of the royal family until 1728, located just 11km from Jaipur. Spanning over four huge courtyards, you will travel to the centre of the fort by either elephant or jeep, passing snake charmers, harems of the Maharajah and the Palace of Mirrors along the way which all make for a truly unforgettable morning. An afternoon city tour of Jaipur takes in the major sights including the home of the royal family of Jaipur - The City Palace and the Jantar Mantar, an astronomical observatory. Lastly, marvel at the hundreds of tiny windows on the facade of the Hawa Mahal, known to many as the Palace of Winds, where it is said that the women of the royal family could once watch the streets below without being seen.

Day 9 - Jaipur & Delhi - Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
The morning is left free so that after breakfast you can visit some of the local bazaars and stalls for some last minute shopping. Try the M1 Road and Chaemeliwala market for jewellery, handicrafts, textile and more, or wander the streets and sample the delicious and unique Rajasthani street food that Jaipur has to offer. You will then commence your return journey to Delhi, stopping for lunch on the way. A final farewell dinner in Delhi will bring your tour to a close, celebrated by a cultural dance show to round off this unforgettable trip.

Day 10 - Delhi to Kovalam.
Depart Delhi in the morning for your flight to Trivandrum (via Mumbai) where you will be met and transferred to your beachside hotel.
Days 11-13 - Breakfast and Dinner
