Overview

A week’s tour in luxury, with the legendary Oberoi hotels as your hosts, famed for their generous hospitality and warm service with state of the art facilities. The “exotic vacations” deals enables access to most luxurious hotels on offer at reduced prices and a holiday of a lifetime.

This tour blends all that is best in the Subcontinent and is ideally suited to the first-time visitor who is short on time. India's famous Golden Triangle of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur needs no introduction - here we find the Taj Mahal, City Palace Jaipur and the stunning Amber Fort, names which echo the former glory of the Mughal and Rajput rulers and which form the nucleus of the tour. Stay at the regal The Oberoi Delhi, Taj facing Oberoi Amarvilas and the royal themed Oberoi Rajvilas and enjoy award winning resorts.

Day 1 - Arrive Delhi

Arrival transfer to hotel and overnight at The Oberoi hotel.

Delhi, Capital City of independent India rewards the determined sightseer with more than a thousand monuments and two old capital buildings complexes-including the present seat of Government, designed by the British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. Cosmopolitan hotels, shopping, and fine restaurants abound. Delhi also offers a glimpse into the real India: the labyrinthine street bazaars of Old Delhi, and the temples and monuments of Indian's chequered colonial past. In the deepest sense, from Old Delhi's Red fort and Jama Masjid mosque to New Delhi's chic art galleries and nightclubs, Delhi is profoundly Indian city.


Day 2 - Delhi

Morning half day New Delhi tour.

The modern area of Central New Delhi, with its wide tree-lined avenues and solid colonial buildings, has been the seat of the central government since 1931. At this hub the royal mall, Rajpath, runs from the palatial Rashtrapati Bhawan, in the east, to the India Gate war memorial, in the west. Rashtrapati Bhavan is the former Viceregal Lodge, now the official residence of Indian’s President. It is the best example of Lutyen’s expansive, imperialist vision, built- of red sandstone in the India-Saracenic (eastern baroque) style.Covering 330 acres of Raisina Hill, it is a huge place. Northeast of the Viceroy’s house is the Council House, now Sansad Bhavan. Baker designed this and Lutyens suggested that it be circular (173 m diameter). Next visit the tomb of Emperor Humayun.

Afternoon at leisure.

Overnight at The Oberoi


Day 3 - Delhi / Jaipur

Drive to Jaipur (260 Kms, 5-6 hours)and Check into Rajvilas to begin the Golden Triangle tour.

Surrounded on three sides by the rugged Aravali Hills and celebrated for its striking pink buildings, Jaipur, or the City of Victory, was founded in 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II. Jaipur is a marvellous synthesis of architectural influences - Hindu, Jain and Mughal, and is one of the few well planned cities of yore. The walled city is called the pink city, as by law all building must be painted deep pink. The practice follows a tradition that dates back to the visit of the Prince of Wales in 1876, when the entire city was freshly painted in his honour. The city is surrounded by a couple of forts, the most magnificent being the Amber Fort. Its bazaars teem with people, camels, horses and a multitude of varied vehicles, while around them loom magnificent palaces and buildings.

Overnight at the Hotel Oberoi Rajvilas


Day 4 - Jaipur

Full day guided tour of Amber Fort and city.

Amber was the ancient capital of the region. Now a deserted complex, it however still recalls its heydays in the majestic ramparts rising steeply along the contoured hillsides.

Drive to Agra (Land of Taj Mahal) via Fatehpur Sikri (230 Kms, 4-5 hours)and Check into Amarvilas Agra the quintessence of the grand Mughal era, reigns to this day in the public mind as the embodiment of royal grace, imposing architecture and power. Agra, more than being a city, is a synonym for the Taj Mahal - one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
