What to expect from our unique tours of the Golden Triangle
Delhi was the seat of power for numerous dynasties before the British took over. Agra had its share of sovereigns including the Mughal emperors who later moved on to Delhi. And while the Rajput rulers of Rajasthan who held sway in Jaipur have a long history of rivalry and infighting, their decedents live on.
As the national capital, Delhi thrives. Progress has long since pushed the boundaries of this grand ceremonial city built during the British Raj, with the development of highways and modern skyscrapers. Remnants of the past such as The Red Fort and Qutab Minar draw visitors to the city, while pockets of boutiques pleasantly surprise.
The centrepiece of our Golden Triangle tours is nothing less than one of the world’s most recognised sites and its greatest monument to love – the unsurpassed Taj Mahal in Agra. By contrast Jaipur has maintained its traditional industries including jewellery, handicrafts and pottery, while the city’s Rajput descendants give the city a vibrant cosmopolitan air. It prospers as the bustling capital and principal gateway to the state of Rajasthan.
During one of our luxury tours of the Golden Triangle, you will find yourself amongst all this and more – making for an experience that is packed with authentic culture, delicious local food, friendly interactions with locals and sights that you will never forget for as long as you live.
