India’s Golden triangle

Could anything be more thrilling that a culture hit in India? Your senses will go into overdrive on this Golden Triangle India tour as you are wowed by the colours, sounds and smells of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur.

Yonder’s Golden Triangle tour, a bite-sized cultural nugget of Delhi, India’s bustling capital, the Taj Mahal in Agra and the pink city of Jaipur, capital of Rajasthan, is one of those mesmerising experiences that will take your breath away.

*Every Yonder itinerary is uniquely created to suit our individual clients. Destinations, hotels, lengths of stay and even modes of transport are all decided by you, with the help of our local knowledge and expert guidance.

You’ll be in photo overdrive, snapping away at the jaw-dropping scenes you’ll encounter. The frenetic energy and charm of Old Delhi, overlooked by the Red Fort, with its narrow streets jammed with people, rickshaws and wares is an experience unlike any other. By contrast, the Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the modern world, with its perfectly symmetrical construction, is a place of devotion, beauty and tranquility.

And when Jaipur is thrown into the mix, you’ll experience the richness of Rajasthan’s historical and cultural heritage, with spectacular palaces, observatories and modern-day artisans who continue to produce beautiful metalwork, textiles and gems. All told, this is one of the most exciting India Golden Triangle tour packages you will find!

Arriving in India necessitates a soft entry. Check in at The Imperial to satisfy your yearnings for art and provide a dose of colonial history. Your Yonder driver and guide will be on hand to take you out exploring. Humayun’s tomb, Gandhi’s eternal flame and India Gate will all be on the agenda. If you’ve got the energy, get out onto the streets of Old Delhi and absorb your surroundings. It’s like nowhere else on earth.

Our favourite way to arrive in Agra is on the express train from Delhi. An early morning start means being part of the daily life in India… but from the comforts of a first-class carriage. In Agra, check into the Oberoi Amarvilas for your first glimpse of the Taj Mahal. Spend a couple of days at the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Chandni Bazar.

The pink city never fails to deliver. The sounds, sights and sounds of this royal capital are spellbinding. You’ll be bowled over by the architecture and the forward thinking of the maharajas who built the city, its palaces and observatory. And perhaps the crowning glory is the spectacular fairytale Ajmer Fort high on a hill a short drive from Jaipur. Your home from home, the Rambagh Palace, is befitting of the stature of the city. From Jaipur you’ll fly back to Delhi to connect with your international flight.
