Our experts say

Spice up this classic route with wild tigers and more

It really is the classic route for discovering India’s greatest treasures – bustling Delhi, the Taj Mahal and the royal Pink City of Jaipur - but there are so many different ways to tailor the classic Golden Triangle route and make it your own dream Indian adventure.

You could sneak off to Chambal for a restful couple of nights in the wilderness by the river, head out to lesser-visited fascinating towns like Lucknow or Gwalior, sleep in remote royal forts, or spot wild tigers in Ranthambore. And we'll suggest the best hotels for your tastes.

Below is an example itinerary for the classic Golden Triangle with a stop at Ranthambore for tiger safaris – but we love tweaking this to make it just right for you…so get in touch!

The itinerary…

Day 2: Welcome to India!

Jama  Masjid

Jama Masjid in Delhi

Meet your driver at New Delhi airport - you will have the same car and driver throughout your trip - and head to your hotel to freshen up and get ready for the upcoming adventure.

Day 3: Markets & monuments of Delhi

Tomb Of The  Emperor  Safdarjung In  Delhi

Safdarjung's tomb in Delhi

Explore the gems of Delhi with your own guide. Ride a cycle rickshaw through the old city, stop in at a traditional perfume shop, wander the bridal bazaar and haggle for spices. Later on there’s the stunning sandstone tomb of the emperor Humayun and the medieval tower at the Qutab Minar.

Day 4: Agra & the Taj Mahal

Taj  Mahal From The  Yamuna River At  Agra

Taj Mahal from the River Yamuna

Drive about 3-4 hours to Agra. Check in to your hotel and head out with your private guide to visit the world’s most beautiful building, the Taj Mahal. It’s also interesting to have a look around the nearby Red Fort.

Day 5: Off to Ranthambore

Tiger Spotting At  Ranthambore

The drive to Ranthambore National Park takes about 5 hours, and on the way you can stop at the historical deserted city of Fatehpur Sikri. Check into your hotel in Ranthambore – this was once a royal hunting ground and is now one of the best places in India to see tigers in the wild.

Day 6: Time for Tigers

Ranthambore  National  Park Ruins

Today enjoy two game drives inside the park in an open-top jeep accompanied by an expert naturalist guide - one in the early morning and a second in the afternoon. Each safari lasts about 3 hours and there is plenty of wild and bird life to see as you search for the elusive tiger.

Day 7: Goodbye Ranthambore, Hello Jaipur

Palace Of  Winds At  Jaipur

Palace of Winds at Jaipur

After a final game drive to see if you can spot the tigers of Ranthambore, it’s about 3-4 hours drive to Jaipur, the pink city of Rajasthan. Check into your Jaipur hotel and enjoy the rest of your day.

Day 8: Jaipur – the Pink City

Jaipur

The Amber Fort Jaipur

A full day to explore the Pink City of Jaipur with your own guide. There’s a lot to see, so start at the milk market and move on to the Amber Fort with its palace of mirrors, the City Palace and museum, the astrological observatory of Jantar Mantar and the Hawa Mahal – the palace of winds. The bazaars of Jaipur are a great place to do your holiday shopping.

Day 9: Jaipur – the Pink City

Your last day in Jaipur to wander the old town and do some last-minute shopping. You will have the car and driver at your disposal, so you have all the freedom to move around as you like.

Day 10: Delhi and fly home

Check out of your hotel before 12 noon, and we will drive you about 5 hours to New Delhi airport for your flight home.

(Unless you want to jet off to Goa or Kerala for some beach time first)
