Day wise Itinerary


Our Services begin here. Our tour executive will pick you up from the location of your choice in New Delhi for a full-day tour of Old and New Delhi. Start your adventure with Old Delhi, a formal capital of the Mughal Dynasty that boasts a plethora of breathtaking monuments.

Visit the massive Red Fort built, by Shah Jahan in 1648, before exploring the colorful Chandni Chowk market by cycle-rickshaw. Shortly after, we will arrive in Jama Masjid. This is the largest mosque in India at the height of 40m where you are able to view Delhi from the minarets of this last architectural project of Shah Jahan.

Drive past Safdarjang’s tomb to visit the highest stone tower in India, the Qutab Minar, a metallurgical marvel that has never rusted since its iron pillar shape was erected in 1199. Later on, we will take you past the earliest example of Mughal architecture, the Tomb of Humayun. Drive through New Delhi on the way to your hotel. New Delhi is a much more recent city and is also known as Lutyens’ Delhi.

The city’s namesake, Edwin Lutyens, was a British architect who was largely responsible for designing the India Gate (a memorial to the martyrs of World War I), Rashtrapati Bhavan (the Presidential House), the Secretariat, the Parliament House, and many other government buildings. Stay overnight at the hotel.

Note: The Red Fort remains closed on Monday.


Check out of your hotel and set off for the lovely drive to Agra. The journey will take about four hours. Hence an early morning 0700 hrs start is recommended.

Two great Mughal monarchs, Akbar and Shah Jahan, had transformed the little village of Agra into a befitting second capital of the Mughal Empire. In Agra, you will be caught up in a world of contrasting edifices, of red sandstone and white marble, narrow galleys and quaint buggies, as well as the city’s irresistible charm. Unsurprisingly, modern Agra has held onto its Mughal heritage so that the modern city is blended with old and beautiful monuments.

In the afternoon, your discovery of historic Agra will begin with a visit to the world's greatest monument to love, the Taj Mahal. Emperor Shah Jahan built this pristine white marble mausoleum in memory of his wife, Mumtaz Mahal. It is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and had taken 22 years and over 20,000 skilled craftsmen from all over the world to create.

Break for lunch by your own.

Afterwards, visit the red sandstone Agra Fort, built by the Mughal dynasty's greatest Emperor, Akbar, in 1565. A number of the fort’s beautiful palaces, mosques and gardens were built by his successors in later years. A few of the priceless examples of artisanship from the Mughal era include the exquisite Moti Masjid or Pearl Mosque, the Diwan-i-Khas, the Diwan-i-Am, the Jahangir Mahal and the Shish Mahal. Agra is famous for its marble art & manufacturing. Stay overnight at the hotel.
