Agra is home to the world's greatest monument of love and one of the most famous landmarks in India - the Taj Mahal. Though Agra is known globally as the city of the Taj, this royal Mughal city has several other monuments that epitomize the high point of Mughal architecture. Agra was the capital of Mughal India in the 16th and 17th centuries. It was here that the founder of the dynasty, Babar, laid out the first formal Persian garden on the banks of the river Yamuna.

The width of the streets and the pavements, the height of the buildings and the division of blocks are all based on ancient geometric harmony and sound environmental considerations. Founded in 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh, Jaipur is steeped in colourful and romantic Rajput history. Its traditional bazaars selling brilliantly coloured textiles and an endless array of trinkets form an integral part of the city centre.

  • Day 01: Arrival Delhi
Welcomed by GTC representative at the airport and transfer to your hotel. Relax and unwind. Overnight at the hotel. (Vehicle for transfer only)
Day TWO +-
  • Day 02: Delhi
After breakfast visit Delhi. As the capital city of India, its former rulers always prized Delhi for its strategic location. A visit to Old Delhi is always an experience. Walk through the ancient bustling, twisting alleyways of Chandni Chowk, the bazaar area and the Red Fort (Closed on Monday) as well as the Jama Masjid (India's biggest Mosque). For those who want to see more, there is the Raj Ghat where Gandhi was cremated and which today is a peaceful and popular park. The British built New Delhi, carefully planning the city and main metropolitan area, when they moved their capital here from Calcutta in 1911. With many interesting museums and art galleries, besides monuments constructed by the mighty Mughal Empire, such as Humayun's Tomb and the Qutab Minar, there is plenty to explore. Drive past Rastrapati Bhawan (the Presidential Palace) & India Gate. Delhi is also a shopper's paradise, being one big emporium for all of India's handicrafts, and home to some of the best contemporary designers India has to offer. This energetic city now has good dining and nightlife options to complement its considerable historical and architectural interest. Overnight at the hotel. (Vehicle at disposal)
Day THREE +-
  • Day 03: Delhi – Agra (by Bhopal Shatabadi Express)
This morning you will be transferred to railway station to board train to Agra. Upon arrival at Agra you will be taken to visit the  Agra Fort. Agra Fort is situated two kilometers west of the Taj Mahal on the banks of the river Yamuna. It was built by the third Mughal Emperor, Akbar and added to by his son Jehangir and grandson Shahjahan. Agra Fort is an imposing structure with walls of red sandstone, almost 3 kilometers (two miles) long. The eastern part of the fort (the only part open to visitors) contains palaces, audience halls and mosques built by all the three emperors. The fort presents a good sampling of their favoured architectural styles. Akbar drew on Islamic and Hindu traditions and the result is eclectic. By Shahjahan's time, the style had become so homogenized that it is impossible to separate the Hindu and Muslim strands. The Diwan-i-am (public audience hall) once housed the fabled peacock throne, which incorporated virtually all the important gems of the imperial treasury. The beautiful Diwan-i-khas (private audience hall) and the magnificent Moti Masjid (Pearl Mosque) are other attractions within the fort. Later on check-in at the hotel. Post lunch visit Agra city and Taj Mahal. With its incredible lacy white grandeur the Taj Mahal is perhaps the most perfect and romantic architectural monument in the world. Emperor Shahjahan constructed this most famous and incomparable Mughal monument in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal and it is the most extravagant monument ever built for love. The Taj Mahal is amazingly graceful from almost any angle and it is the close up detail, which is really astounding. Taj Mahal is closed on Fridays. Overnight at the hotel. (Vehicle for transfer and at disposal)

Every aspect of this majestic city, known as the pink city due to the colour of its houses, was meticulously planned. The street width, pavements, building height and the division of blocks are all based on ancient geometric harmony and sound environmental and climatic considerations. Founded in 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh, it is steeped in colourful and romantic Rajput history. This can be explored at the City Palace, the Hawa Mahal and the beautiful Amber Fort.

When Should I go?

The months of September through to March are considered to be favourable months to travel to India. September has the added advantage of being in the “good weather” bracket but also technically falls in the off season in most places, so prices are cheaper for travel in September. The months of October through to February are pleasant in most parts of the country, though you will find the temperatures varying between chilly in the North and warmer in the southern parts of the country.

India’s weather is varied and different parts of the country may get monsoons at different times. May and June are hot months across the country except for the hill stations in the North.

Monsoon Months in India

The country gets monsoons in the months of June and July though along the south western coast, there are monsoons in the period between October to December too.

June and July are monsoon months in Kerala, the showers being heavy at first and then easing off gradually. Whilst these are not the best months for tours, interestingly, this happens to the best time for travellers seeking the therapeutic Ayurveda treatment which is said to be most effective in these months.

Best months for travel to India

The months of October through to March are considered to be the most favourable months to travel to India when the weather is sunny and pleasant.
