The Experience

Uncover the unique charm of India as you spend eight days touring some of its most important touristic sites on this Golden Triangle Tour. The Golden Triangle refers to an area that covers the cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur and harbours a wealth of cultural and historical treasures. Among these is the breathtaking Taj Mahal, mausoleum constructed hundreds of years ago by an Indian emperor. The majestic Red Fort in Delhi was a residence for the Mughal Emperors and, like the Taj Mahal, is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its red sandstone exterior and intricate curves and arches will put you under a spell. A trip through India's first planned city, Jaipur, is a must on any India itinerary. Most of the buildings here are painted pink, giving birth to the 'Pink City' moniker.
