Your India tour begins in the capital city of Delhi. Included sightseeing brings you to stunning sites such as the 11th-century Qutub Minar, Humayun’s Tomb, and Gurudwara Bangla Sahib (Delhi’s most prominent Sikh house of worship). You'll also explore Old Delhi's colorful Chandni Chowk bazaar by rickshaw.

No visit to India would be complete without a visit to the world-famous Taj Mahal—a timeless monument of ivory marble—built by some 20,000 laborers, artisans, and craftsmen between 1631 and 1648 AD for Moghul Emperor Shah Jahan as a memorial to his beloved wife.

Continue your tour of India in the “Pink City” of Jaipur with its opulent City Palace museum and gardens, and the Hawa Mahal (Palace of the Winds). A separate excursion brings you to Amber Fort, the jewel of the city. Here, see intricate mosaics, carvings, paintings, and mirror works of the white marble and red sandstone. Your journey concludes where it began in Delhi.

This remarkable guided India tour is sure to stir the senses, mind, and spirit with the richness of this inspiring land.
