After hotel pickup in Delhi prior to 9am, hop inside a private, air-condition vehicle with a driver and guide and travel between your chosen six sites from the 16 available. When selecting your sites, be aware that opening hours and distances may affect your itinerary. As you travel, hear about Delhi’s history from your guide, and enjoy guided visits to each site if you wish.
If you wish, visit more of Delhi's UNESCO-listed treasures, such as the 236-foot (72-meter) Qutub Minar tower and Humayun’s Tomb. Admire this stunning 16th-century mausoleum for Mughal Emperor Humayun and learn how it inspired the design of the Taj Mahal. Other historical points of interest include the 18th-century Safdarjung’s Tomb and the medieval fort of Purana Qila.
For modern history, meanwhile, you may want to see two sites associated with India’s revered independence leader, Mahatma Gandhi. View Gandhi Smriti, where he was assassinated in 1948, and Raj Ghat, his cremation site.
Alternatively, stick to a religious theme and view Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, a white-marble Sikh temple, or the extraordinary Lotus Temple, a modern Bahai temple shaped like a lotus flower.
If you fancy slowing the pace, perhaps stretch your legs around the tomb-dotted Lodhi Gardens or the ruins of the Mehrauli Archaeological Park.
Alternatively, delve into Hauz Khas Village, an arty shopping enclave within a deer park, or the National Zoological Park, formerly Delhi Zoo.
Explore finishing with shopping at Dilli Haat; a government-authorized bazaar of traditional Indian handicrafts. Or enjoy some retail therapy at Connaught Place or Janpath Market, two popular shopping haunts.
Your tour finishes with a hotel drop-off.
