If arriving prior to standard check-in time, which is generally 3pm local time, you are welcome to leave your luggage with hotel reception and explore your surroundings until check-in becomes available, as there are generally no scheduled activities on Day 1 of the itinerary.

Destination DelhiDestination Delhi Meals included Breakfast, Dinner Hotel 5 The Leela Palace New Delhi , or similar Your adventure begins with a morning welcome meeting led by your expert tour guide. Following the meeting we'll begin our sightseeing tour of Old Delhi, a positively remarkable area dating back to the 1600s. Our tour begins at the Jama Masjid, one of India’s largest mosques, which stands across the road from the historic Red Fort. This glorious mosque was commissioned by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, who also commissioned the Taj Mahal. Built with red sandstone and white marble, Jama Masjid can accomodate up to 25,000 worshippers. Next, we will experience an exhilarating cycle rickshaw ride in the busy market area of Chandni Chowk. Within the market's narrow lanes the traditional workmanship for which Delhi is famous is still very much alive. Originating from the times of the Mughal Empire, it is said that the descendants of royal chefs still work in the market. Later, we will visit the Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib, a magnificent place of worship where we will learn about the history of the Sikh religion. On our way back to our hotel we will stop at the India Gate, a war memorial dedicated to the Indian soldiers who died during WWI, as well as Rashtrapati Bhavan, the official home of the country's president. This evening, you’ll join your guide and the rest of your group for your first Inspiring Taste, a welcome dinner at the world-class Indian Accent. Undoubtedly the best restaurant in India, it’s also been featured in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants. You’ll enjoy contemporary Indian cuisine with this fine dining experience in a stylish setting.
Destination Delhi - AgraDestination Delhi Agra Meals included Breakfast, Dinner Hotel 4 ITC Mughal, A Luxury Collection Hotel, or similar Today, we make our way to Agra, about a four-hour drive. Agra rose to fame in the 17th century as the capital of the Mughal Empire and was beautified with gardens, waterfalls, bathhouses and canals. In modern times, the city houses a thriving crafts industry, including marble inlay work and carpets. In the late afternoon, enjoy a sightseeing tour of Agra which includes an undeniable highlight, the awe-inspiring Taj Mahal. Go inside this iconic monument. Built in the mid-17th century by Shah Jahan following the death of his queen, this mausoleum is an eternal love poem written in stone. During the visit, you can admire the intricacy of the work of the 20,000 craftsmen who were brought from Persia, Turkey, France and Italy to build this astonishing monument. This evening, enjoy your first Inspiring Taste as we jump on a 'chaat crawl' through the city thought to serve up the country’s best. Chaat are savoury snacks (like fried potatoes, or samosa broken into pieces and served with chutney) typically served roadside from stalls or carts; it is the Indian equivalent to fast food. Though chaat is said to originate in Uttar Pradesh, the food has become immensely popular in the rest of India and the Indian subcontinent. Once your appetite has been piqued, we'll enjoy another delicious buffet dinner at our hotel.

Be dazzled by the Sheesh Mahal, a room with its four walls and ceiling completely embedded with glittering mirror pieces. We'll return to the old city to visit the City Palace and the beautiful palaces within, such as the Chandra Mahal and Mubarak Mahal and the intricately decorated Peacock Gate. After, make a stop at the spellbinding Hawa Mahal or Palace of the Winds and the famous Johari bazaar famous for its jewels and saris, the Tripolia bazaar with bronzes, sculptures and lacquerware, the Bapu bazaar renowned for its perfumes and textiles, and Chandpol bazaar for pottery and bracelets. Jaipur is a shopping haven.

This afternoon we'll visit the impressive City Palace. Well known as one of the biggest palaces in Rajasthan, this grand building is set on the banks of Pichola Lake. Though construction began in the late 1500s, under the orders of Maharana Udai Singh II, the palace was added to and tinkered with for a further 400 years, as his successors came and went. Today this monumental complex consists of 11 palaces surrounded by courtyards, balconies, towers and gardens, and is famed for its intricate peacock mosaics. We'll then enjoy a cooling breeze as we take to the waters of Lake Pichola by boat to get an uninterrupted view of Udaipur’s lakeside splendour.

We’ll witness pilgrims performing ancient bathing rituals and ceremonies and learn why Varanasi is considered the spiritual capital of India. Enjoy a buffet lunch and in the evening, we will make a very special visit to the local ghats – steps that lead down to the River Ganges – to witness an Aarti ceremony. Taking its name from the Sanskrit word for homage and devotion, this religious ritual takes place every evening on the banks of the river. During the ceremony, small candle-lit lamps decorated with flowers are floated down the river as an offering to the Goddess Ganga, accompanied by a chorus of chanting hymns, drums and temple bells.
Destination Varanasi - AmristarDestination Varanasi Amristar Meals included Breakfast, Dinner Hotel 5 Taj Swarna , or similar After breakfast this morning we'll depart for Delhi. Upon arrival in Delhi, we board a flight for Amritsar. You’ll be met upon arrival and transferred to your hotel.

This evening we'll visit the Golden Temple to see the enchanting palki sahib ceremony. To the accompaniment of drums and hymns, a gold and silver-gilded palanquin (a portable bed or couch that is mounted on two poles and carried at each end on the shoulders of porters) decorated with silk brocades, is prepared by the devotees to carry the Guru Granth Sahib (the Sikh holy book) from the main shrine in Hari Mandir to Darshani Deorhi (gateway leading to the inner sanctum).

After our tour here we'll return to the hotel for a buffet lunch before spending the afternoon at leisure. This evening we'll head out to the India-Pakistan border to witness the pomp and circumstance of the daily Wagah border flag-lowering ceremony – a military practice that the security forces of India and Pakistan have followed since 1959.
Destination Amristar - DelhiDestination Amristar Delhi Meals included Breakfast, Dinner Hotel 5 Taj City Centre Gurugram, or similar We’ll fly to Delhi in the early afternoon. You’ll arrive at 4:30pm and be transferred to your hotel. This evening, savour a delectable farewell dinner at the opulent Veda Restaurant. There's a warm ambience, thanks to the red brick walls and soft lighting from chandeliers, but the pièce de résistance is the central ceiling dome, which is embellished with thikri kaam, a special decorative feature that uses glasswork from the arid regions of Rajasthan. The menu, meanwhile, is packed with contemporary takes on a variety of Indian classic dishes. This magical dining experience is the perfect way to complete your final day in India.
