Five-Star India’s Golden Triangle, Tigers and Shimla
Anonymous
“Well organised tour, excellent tour manager and local guide, really impressed
India's Golden Triangle
Anonymous
“First time with Great Rail Journey as my usual single provider could only get me to Shimla as an add on and on my own. Have no interest in going to Rathambore for the tigers as I can see them at Chessington. Taj Mahal has been on a 50 year To Do list. Face timed with an Indian gentleman with his wife and 6 week old son. She was delighted when I came on the phone with a Namaste.

Agra Fort

Perched on a hill high above Agra, the Agra Fort was one of India's most important defensive structures. The country was also governed from here and the grounds were home to a state treasury and mint. The foundations of the current complex were laid between 1565 and 1573 on the remains of earlier Rajput fortifications. The fort complex is sometimes referred to as a 'walled city', due to its sheer size, and the number of different buildings within the grounds.

Incredibly, the walls encompass approximately a square mile, and are more than 60 feet (18 metre) high all round. Although not all of the complex is open to visitors, there are still a number of impressive buildings to look around, including the magnificent Jahangiri Mahal. This particular palace was designed for the ladies of the royal family.
