The Golden Triangle!!
The Golden Triangle is marked as one of the most attractive route by the tourist in India. Cities that are captured in this route are Jaipur, Agra, and Delhi as these cities are the charming, decadent and obsessive world of the Mughals and maharajas.
They have left behind some of the world’s finest construction, from the Qutab Minar in Delhi to the Amber Fort in Jaipur and of course the Taj Mahal in Agra. For this tour, five days are enough to see the highlights of the Golden Triangle. Also, these cities make a triangle on the Indian map and is easily linked by land. This 750 km route is commonly embarked by tourists due to its simplicity.
One should start its tour with Delhi and straightly head to Chandni Chowk. It is also known as silver streets of Delhi and is marked as one of the liveliest parts of the city. The narrow passageways are filled with stalls selling electronics, clothes, spices and any other stuff that you can think off. Secondly, Chandni Chowk is famous for selling all kinds of parantha you wish for.
Later in the day, one can halt for lunch at Karim’s, which is one of the famous places for its mouth-watering kebabs, and then head towards marvelous Red Fort or Lal Qila. It is constructed on the banks of the Yamuna; is one of the unbelievable examples of Mughal architecture and has a wall that covers an area of 2 kilometers. Near to it is Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India that can consist up to 25,000 people! Have a walk up the fine curved stairs of the spire to get the superlative view of Old Delhi.
In the evening, you can visit Raj Ghat, the cremation site of Mahatma Gandhi. Post that head back to Red Fort to see the popular Sound and Light Show.
Set back to the hotel, have dinner and relax yourself.
Next day, have breakfast at the hotel and start your day to Mehrauli, home to Qutab Minar complex and is marked in UNESCO World Heritage site. It is over 72 metres high and construction on this was inaugurated in 1193 A.D. Later, head back into Delhi for a short break and enjoy a picnic at Lodhi Garden. From there, visit Humayun’s Tomb, one of the most remarkable monuments in Delhi.
Return to hotel. Evenings are free for its leisure.
On the Day 3 of the tour, wake up early and head towards Agra and breakfast will be served on board.
On the way, stop at Fatehpur Sikri, the ancient city that was once the capital of the Mughal Empire. The fort delivers a vision into the life of Emperor Akbar, with homes for his Hindu, Christian and Muslim wives, and a remarkable masjid.
By afternoon you will reach Agra and is a course home to the Taj Mahal which is marked as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. This iconic monument is simply breathtaking and was built by Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz.
In the evening you can dine under the stars like a sovereign at Esphahan Restaurant in the luxurious Oberoi Amarvilas.
Next two days are set for Jaipur. It is also known as a Pink City. You can start your journey by visiting Hawa Mahal. It is an iconic building that hides many secrets of the ladies that used to live here once. Near to it you can visit City Palace, Jantar Mantar, Albert Museum and Raj Mandir.
Return to hotel, have dinner and enjoy the evening.

Hello Madam we had a wonderful trip. We have traveled a lot but never to anywhere like India, So we were nervous about the trip. As soon as we met up with your MR Surat Singh – the driver we felt at ease we had a lot of confidence in him and were happy that all travel and hotel arrangements were taken care of by your company. We also liked the fact that the itinerary you have designed such a way that we could visit the sites that interested us, and skip the ones that didn’t interest us or would be to tiring. Also the choices of hotels were wonderful. We really enjoyed our tour and would recommend it to our friends and family members. Thanks for making the trip so wonderful.
I read lots of glowing reports on Facebook and Trip Adviser about India Someday before getting your ideas, itinerary, quotes, hotel suggestions etc. They all said great things about you and all I want to do is simply say that they were all right! We have mentioned India someday to several people planning Indian trips and I hope for their sakes that they contact you! Thanks, Madam Mala for a great job!
India is so intriguing and mystical I knew as soon as I could afford it I would go. India Someday helped us with all the things we would struggle to do ourselves such as book train tickets, find cheap yet beautiful accommodation, stay with Indian families, visit spots off the beaten tourist track as well as giving us invaluable support and advice while in India. Aaliyah and Mala have been a joy & have made our first visit to India one I will remember for all the right reasons
