Discover colourful Rajasthan and its crowning glory, the Taj Mahal

A visit to the incredible Taj Mahal and other great Moghul cities close to Delhi is an excellent way to begin or end a visit to Northern India. The Taj Mahal in Agra was built by the Moghul Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died in 1631, and is one of the most beautiful sights on earth. Close by is the imposing Red Fort of Akbar with its beautiful courtyards and palaces and let's not forget the deserted royal city of Fatehpur Sikri. We also visit he Pink City of Jaipur, capital of Rajasthan, which is one of the most attractive and colourful cities in India. For pre-trip extensions, you will end your Golden Triangle journey on the first "arrival" day of your main trip, travelling to Delhi from Agra to join your main trip group on the evening of day 1. For post-trip extension, you will start your Golden Triangle journey from the final "departure" day of your main trip, travelling to Jaipur after breakfast at the Delhi hotel. Please note, the post-trip extension is not available if you are booked on the Darjeeling, Sikkim & the Singalila Ridge (TBS) trip.

Viktig Informasjon

The trip destination
  • 5 days Land Only
  • 4 nights comfortable hotels
  • Travel by train and by car
  • Accompanied by local sightseeing guides and a driver
  • Compulsory solo traveller supplement from £400 (our sales team will advise if applicable)
All breakfasts are included in this trip. Other meals are not. India is famous for its food and there is ample opportunity to try various curries, including the familiar tandoori, biriyani and rogan josh. If you are a vegetarian, India is a great destination. There are wonderful desserts and excellent beers, soft drinks and Indian specialities such as lassi, a refreshing yoghurt drink. You should allow at least 1,400-2,400 Indian rupees (US$20-US$35) per day for lunch and dinner. You can eat out very cheaply in India, but if you go to the more expensive restaurants, most of the time, you will spend more than the suggested amount. In most towns we visit, there is a good selection of restaurants and a choice between Indian and Western food. Please note, service in restaurants can be quite slow. Tea and soft drinks are very cheap. A (large!) bottle of beer is approximately 285 rupees (approximately US$4). Mineral water is widely available, but drinking water is provided in a large container in the bus to reduce our use of plastic, so please bring your own refillable water bottle.

During October/November and from February to April, the days are normally warm or hot and nights cool or mild. Humidity is very low and little or no rain falls.

It gets very cold in the early mornings and evenings in December, January and into February and warm clothes are essential. During this time, nightly temperatures in Delhi can be very cold and only a little above freezing. Come prepared for both cold and hot temperatures during the winter period.

In July, August and September, expect hot (or very hot) days and warm nights. Rain is also possible at any time from the end of June until September and can be very heavy. However, it moderates the temperatures.

Is this trip for you?

This trip is rated Activity Level 1 (Leisurely).

There is a lot to see in the time but everything is scheduled so that it doesn't feel too rushed. You should come armed for an experience: India can be hard work and the heat and the bustle of some of the cities can be a little overwhelming. That said, there are places where you can find peace and this is one of the few places in the world from where you will return armed with great stories and memories to last a lifetime.

Please note that the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) is responsible for the conservation of many monuments in India, including the Taj Mahal, and very occasionally this may mean that work is taking place at sites visited on this trip. The ASI’s schedule is never published so it is not possible to forewarn our clients of when work will be taking place.

There is quite a bit of driving involved and one train journey. The drive to Jaipur may take between 5-7 hours. Road journeys can sometimes take longer due to local traffic, national or religious holidays, or road damage after the monsoon and the possibility of train delays also cannot be ruled out.

On Fridays, the Taj Mahal is closed, depending on your travel dates, if necessary we reverse the itinerary to first go to Agra and then to Jaipur.


If you choose to do this extension before your main Exodus tour, the hotel night in Delhi is included on Day 1 instead of day 5 of the itinerary:

Day 1: Start Delhi airport; arrival transfer to Delhi hotel.

Day 2: Drive to Jaipur.

Day 3: Sightseeing in Jaipur.

Day 4: Visit Fatehpur Sikri en route to Agra.

Day 5: Taj Mahal and Red Fort, Agra. Train to Delhi, arriving in the evening. (Join your main Exodus tour).

Please note that when the extension is booked pre-tour, you will arrive back into Delhi on the evening of day 5. If therefore, there are included activities on day 1 of your main Exodus holiday, you will need to start the extension a day early and book an extra night in Delhi before joining your main tour so as not to miss any activities.
