Feel the significance as the fragrant garland is gently placed around your neck, a mark of respect and honor that will make you truly feel cherished. Soon after, step into a comfortable mode of transportation, where our representative will ensure a seamless journey to your hotel.

Welcome to a splendid morning! Indulge in a sumptuous breakfast at the hotel, setting the tone for an extraordinary day ahead. Today unfolds with an exhilarating exploration of both Old and New Delhi.

In the captivating lanes of Chandni Chowk, embark on a delightful cycle rickshaw ride, immersing yourself in the vibrant tapestry of this historical area. Navigate diverse routes, each offering a unique perspective and a truly distinct experience.

Discover the profound legacy of Mahatma Gandhi at the Gandhi Smriti Museum, his residence during visits to Delhi. The museum houses a captivating collection of photographs, personal belongings, and enchanting exhibits like small dolls illustrating Gandhiji’s life.

Transitioning to New Delhi, visit the sacred Bangla Sahib, a spiritual haven for Sikh devotees. Witness the heartwarming community kitchen, where nearly 10,000 people are served with devotion.

Embark on a scenic drive along Rajpath, the ceremonial avenue, passing iconic landmarks such as India Gate, Parliament House, and the President’s Residence.

This is not merely a tour; it’s an immersive journey through the heart of India’s rich history and vibrant spirituality.

Following a delightful breakfast, the time will come to bid farewell to your current abode as you check out and embark on a comfortable journey to Agra.

Upon reaching Agra, settle into your new haven. Take a moment to relax and refresh in the comfort of your room.

Later, venture into the historical tapestry of Agra with a visit to the majestic Agra Fort. This red-sandstone fortress, initiated by Emperor Akbar in 1566, proudly stands on the banks of the Yamuna River. Explore the Diwan-I-Khas, a hall of private audience, adorned with marble pavilions featuring intricate floral inlays, creating an ethereal ambiance. Here, envision the emperor seated on his gem-studded Peacock Throne, engaging with foreign ambassadors and rulers of friendly kingdoms.

Post-sightseeing, indulge in some leisure time, perhaps exploring the rich handicrafts that Agra has to offer during your free time. This is not just a journey; it’s an opportunity to immerse yourself in the history and vibrant culture of Agra, leaving you with lasting memories.

Today marks the pinnacle of our journey, a truly extraordinary day. Begin with a delightful breakfast, and then immerse yourself in the kaleidoscope of Holi colors in Agra. Adorn yourself in traditional attire and fully experience the festival’s vibrant spirit. This celebration is a spirited carnival of colors, where participants joyfully engage in playful chases, covering each other with vivid dry powder and colored water. Some wield water guns and water-filled balloons, creating a lively water fight. Amidst laughter and chit-chat, the shared joy becomes the heart of the celebration.

Indulge in delectable snacks, sweets, and traditional foods while basking in the ambiance of lively traditional music.

Following the exhilarating Holi celebration, the remainder of the day is yours to relish at your own pace, savoring the memories created during this unique and festive experience.

Embark on yet another thrilling day! The moment you’ve eagerly awaited has arrived—it’s time to witness the enchanting Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the world. As you stand before this magnificent monument, you’ll be immersed in captivating tales of the great emperor who, in a grand expression of love, commissioned the construction of this extraordinary structure in memory of his beloved wife. A testament to love’s extravagance, it took the toil of 20,000 men over 17 years to create this enduring memorial.

Feel the essence of this remarkable architecture as you touch the solid marble, marveling at its endurance through the ages.

After returning to the hotel, relish a delectable buffet breakfast before embarking on a scenic drive to Jaipur—the legendary “pink city” of the desert, named after Jai Singh, the former Maharaja of Jaipur.
