first time in India for 3 people out of 4 people.

Hello to All

We would really appreciate help.

25/6/14 -3/7/14

I am arriving with my family - My husband and myself and my 2 adult children. My husband has been to India multiple times but not as a standard tourist . It is the first time to India for the rest of us .

We are looking at Delhi- Varanasi- Agra- Jaipur - Delhi. We need to organise our trip now and have only booked the flights in and out of India. If anyone could provide us with any help with our travel, accommodation or sightseeing advice please drop me a line. Thanks for your time.

Hi,

After your arrival in Delhi, do the Golden Triangle tour first for which the order could either be Delhi - Agra - Jaipur - Delhi or Delhi - Jaipur - Agra - Delhi.Usually this is a 5 nights 6 days tour. Then you can visit Varanasi for a couple of nights by train or flight.

Visiting the Golden Triangle by a car is the best option. L

Or, you can follow the above post regarding a night train from Agra to Varanasi.

Thanks
