    Upon arrival in Delhi you’ll be met by your driver and escorted to your hotel. Once you’ve checked in and freshened up, the balance of the day is at your leisure. This evening, dinner is at your hotel.

  • Day 2

    This morning, embark on an iconic tour of Delhi unravelling the wonders of both Old Delhi and New Delhi, the country’s capital. Hop on a cycle rickshaw and travel through Chandni Chowk’s bustling streets, savoring the smells and sounds as you approach Jama Masjid, India’s largest mosque, then head into New Delhi. Replete with colonial charm, highlights here include the India Gate, Parliament buildings, Rashtrapati Bhawan, the atmospheric 14th-century step-well, Agrasen ki Baoli, and the Sikh’s holy shrine, Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, a complex featuring a devotion center, a large pond (for holy dipping), a missionary school, an art gallery, a charitable hospital, and Langar, a free community kitchen.

  • Day 3

    This morning, drive to Agra where you’ll proceed to the impressive Agra Fort and Itmad-ud-Daulah. The 16th-century Red Fort of Agra is a powerful fortress of red sandstone that encompasses, within its 1-mile long enclosure walls, the imperial city of the Mughal rulers, comprised of many fairytale-like palaces. Then proceed on a curated experience, designed for you to see traditional Mughal artisanship, showcasing works with semi-precious stones, marble, and Pashmina. Your day ends with a sunset visit to the Taj MahaI, built by Shah Jahan between 1631 and 1652 as a monument to his beloved wife. Although amazingly beautiful from almost any angle, it’s the Taj’s close-up detail that’s really astounding.

  • Day 4

    Following breakfast, you’ll drive one hour to Fatehpur Sikri, an imperial capital seemingly frozen in time. Built by Akbar the Great around 1570, it was abandoned because of its water shortages only 14 years after it was built. Today, the magnificent fortified ancient city remains an Indo-Islamic masterpiece. Then head to the station to board the Jan Shatabdi train to Ranthambore National Park, one of the largest and most renowned national parks in Northern India. Once the hunting grounds of Jaipur’s Maharajas, today it’s a major wildlife attraction spot and a Project Tiger preservation reserve.

  • Day 5

    Early this morning, you’ll head out in search of the magnificent Bengal Tiger on your first game drive of the day. Then, following breakfast, you’ll have a choice of two tours. One offers a visit to a DASTKAR’s Craft Center that promotes and revives traditional Indian crafts, thereby helping empower low-caste village women, who sell their crafts. Alternatively, you can visit Ranthambore’s 1,000-year-old fort that stands at the periphery of the National Park, showcasing a spectacular combination of Rajput and Mughal architecture. The base of the fort provides superb bird watching—you’ll see Parakeets, Doves, Flycatchers, Peacocks, and Painted Spurfowls—along with a large horde of monkeys. This afternoon, enjoy your second game drive.

Must-see sights for first-time visitors include the Gateway of India, Victoria Terminus Train Station, Marine Drive & the Chowpatty Beach, Hanging Gardens, the Boot House at Kamla Nehru Park, Mumbai University, and the Rajabai Clock Tower. Your tour will conclude at your hotel in time for you to check in and freshen up, before regrouping to enjoy a hands-on curry cooking class in a local home, where you’ll dine with your chef before returning to your hotel.
