Embark on a spectacular journey that travels through the heart of India by train including a journey on the 'bullet train', to explore old and new Delhi, the Taj Mahal in Agra and bustling bazaars of Jaipur that epitomize the rich culture of Rajputana. Travelling by the fastest train in India, the ever-changing scenery and vegetation will slowly unfold as you move from city to city on this enticing itinerary. Delhi is a cosmopolitan city that has a rich history stretching back thousands of years. It has been the capital of at least seven or eight great civilizations, and each of them has left monuments worth exploring. In Old Delhi you will visit the 17th century Jama Masjid and walk through the narrow, winding lanes of the colourful and bustling Chandni Chowk. In New Delhi, you can drive past The Presidential Palace and all the government buildings. Upon arrival in Agra, you will be met by your Tour Guide and will be taken to see the best sites including Agra Fort. Then travel to Jaipur by train. The capital of Rajasthan province is known for its arts and crafts, jewellery, handpainted fabrics and stone sculptures; it is one of North India's finest examples of a planned city embodying the best of Rajput and Mughal architecture.
