Both our Golden Triangle tours kick off here, in India’s so-called Pink City. There’s no need for rose-tinted glasses in this place, because the city’s earned its name from its pink-tinged buildings and walls.
You’ll tick off plenty on your two-day stay here, starting off with a tour of the seven-storey city palace. You’ll see the 18th century Hawa Mahal – the palace next door – too. Then, it’s time for another hit of history at the Jantar Mantar Medieval Observatory.
On your second day, you’ll hop in a 4x4 for a trip up to the Sun Gate of the Amer Fort. This UNESCO World Heritage site is pretty colourful, as well – it’s built out of red sandstone. You’ll round off your day with a trip to the city’s markets, so get ready to haggle for souvenirs.
En route to Agra, you’ll stop off at the ghost city of Fatehpur Sikri. This 16th-century town was abandoned by its residents because the water system couldn’t support them. It’s really well preserved – everything’s exactly as it was when the townspeople left – so it’s a great place to get a glimpse of some traditional Mughal architecture.
Next up, it’s the world-famous Taj Mahal. This iconic building took a whopping 21 years and 20,000 artisans to build, and it was built by Shah Jahan as a tribute to his wife.
After you’ve had your fill of marvelling at the Taj Mahal, you’ll stop off at the Agra Fort – another UNESCO-accredited spot – which was commissioned by Mughal Emperor Akbar in 1565.
Delhi’s thought to be one of the world’s oldest cities – you’ll explore New and Old Delhi during your visit. The Red Fort is first on your sightseeing list. This place was home to Mughal emperors for over 200 years, but now it houses a selection of museums.
Jama Masjid, one of the country’s biggest mosques, is on the cards, too. And, you’ll get to have a look at the India Gate war memorial.
Amritsar is surrounded by a dozen Medieval gates, and it’s home to the Golden Temple, which contains Sikhism’s holy book, the Guru Granth. You’ll get to see inside the temple before you head off to the Wagah Border, where you’ll see a military ceremony – the Beating Retreat.
Or, if you opt for Udaipur, you’ll start things off with a visit to the 16th-century City Palace and the even-older Jagdish Temple. Then, you’re in for a relaxing afternoon in the Sahelion-ki Bari Gardens, followed by a boat trip on Lake Pichola.
After all that adventuring, you’ll need some time to relax. Spend the last seven nights of your trip in Goa, in a hotel pulled right up by a beach. You can fill your time with sunbathing, exploring local markets, and having a go at some watersports, if you like. And the best bit is, you get to choose how you spend your time here – you can do it all (or nothing) at your own pace.
Heritage Village Club is just one of the hotels you can choose to stay in after your tour. It's right next to the beach, and has a traditional Goan restaurant on-site.
Another hotel in South Goa is . Just 20-minutes from bustling Margao, it’s set in 45 acres of landscaped gardens and is right next to the beach.
is hidden among tropical gardens in South Goa. With palm-trimmed pools and a Tatra Spa, it's the perfect place to unwind after your tour.
