About the tour
This amazing adventure through historic India takes us to some of the glorious country's most exciting sights. On our fascinating journey we discover thriving cities, spectacular forts, and have a chance to see a tiger in the wild, culminating with a night in a 200-year-old palace.
We leave London Heathrow on our overnight flight to Delhi, arriving in the morning of Day 2. We are then transferred into the heart of Delhi, where we spend two nights at the heritage 4-Star Maidens Hotel, located on the banks of the River Yamuna close to the quaint bazaars of Chandi Chowk.

Everything is very well arranged and organised with all excursions coordinated to the very last detail.
A very busy holiday - really enjoyed all the sights at extra trips
A well conceived package for a first visit to India. A good itinerary, giving us a great look at many of the major sights - temples, forts etc, and enough travel to see a range of the natural splendour of the country too, as well as an opportunity to get a feel for the everyday life in the bustling towns and cities. And a touch of tiger magic too. Special mention to our tour manager Nicola, who did a great job throughout, and helped us considerably with arrangements for wheelchairs where necessary, after my wife injoured her foot shortly before departure on the trip.

Amazing trip Thankyou so much . You took all our worries away so we could enjoy the experience, we had a great guide , great driver and assistant. Plus Linda our Tour Manager that took care of everything. Hotels were very good friendly and polite, first rate. If you only have one chance of visiting India this is a must do tour. My only concern was that visiting India the chance of having a upset tummy was not if but when. The coach had a bathroom but was not available to us,? We had some long trips on the coach but we did have comfort breaks , which meant a dash for the bathroom by the majority of us ,I'm not saying we all had a bad tummy far from it but the opportunity to use the coach facilities would have been a added benefit . A very full on tour which enables you to experience the best of the triangle . We will certainly go on anther adventure with these guys.The 4hr coach trip to the airport then the long wait for the flight made it a very long trip home . But we loved the trip.Thank you Great Rail Journeys.

Wonderful hotels although the change to the Hilton Jaipur was a shame. Could have been anywhere. Angela tour manager and Shaju, guide, were simply brilliant making the tours so interesting. A great team. Loved the sights sounds and smells of India. Would definitely recommend.
