Overview
It's not surprising that most visitors to India make a point of taking a tour around the Golden Triangle with stops at the capital New Delhi, Agra, which is home to the stunning Taj Mahal, the colourful Rajasthan city of Jaipur and the ghostly deserted red stone city of Fatehpur Sikri. And on this wonderful trip you do all this . . . as well as having three exciting tiger safaris in the famous Ranthambhore National Park.
Day 1
Arrive New Delhi
On arrival at New Delhi International Airport you will be met by one of our tour representatives and taken to your chosen hotel. India's capital and a major gateway to the country, Delhi is a contemporary and bustling metropolis which successfully combines the ancient and the modern. Its strategic location was one of the prime reasons why successive dynasties chose it as their seat of power. New Delhi also reflects the legacy the British left behind.

Day 4

It is the best example of the amalgamation of Hindu and Muslim architecture and today the deserted red sandstone city is a UNESCO World heritage site. Later continue your drive to Ranthambore, and check in to your next hotel.
