After your overnight flight, on Day 2 you will arrive into bustling Delhi in the morning, ready to begin your North Indian adventure!  

You will be met at the airport by a VIVID Travel representative and transferred to your hotel. Take some time to check-in, freshen up and find your bearings before heading out on a private guided orientation tour of this bustling, diverse city. First, you will be driven past the grand Presidential Palace: the one-time imperial residence of the British viceroys.  Next, you will visit the India Gate, a memorial built in honor of the Indian soldiers who were martyred during the Afghan war. Finally, you will head along the Rajpath past the Parliament House and onto Gandhi Smriti, a museum honoring the life and service of Mahatma Gandhi.

 

On Day 3 you will continue your exploration of this vibrant city with a visit to both Old and New Delhi. Begin in contemporary New Delhi, where you will first visit the Qutub Minar - a 12th-century tower of victory built by a slave king, before continuing to the tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun. Next, it's time to visit authentic Old Delhi, where you will stop in on Raj Ghat (where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated) before continuing onto the 17th century Jama Masjid mosque. You will then hop aboard a local cycle rickshaw for an exciting and informative ride through the narrow, crowded streets of Chandni Chowk bazaar.  

This evening, venture further into Chandni Chowk with your local guide and experience a sensory delight as you explore the various types of street food on offer before finishing up at a local restaurant for a delicious Delhi dinner.

On the morning of Day 4, you will be driven to the railway station where you will board the first train down to Agra.  Railway stations in India are exciting, busy and often hectic places - an experience in themselves. Don't worry about getting lost as you will be escorted through the station and onto the train by your local guide, leaving your mind free to absorb in the hustle and bustle around you. This comfortable train trip can take around two hours, so sit back and enjoy the view.  When you arrive in Agra, you will be greeted by your guide before embarking on your next city tour. You will explore the sights of the city, including the famous Taj Mahal, before arriving at your hotel.  

This evening you will be heading to Mehtab Bagh for sunset - crossing the Yamuna River for an alternative view of the Taj Mahal at this time of day will ensure a view to remember.
