Delhi, Agra, Jaipur & Goa / The Gems of Goa & The Golden Triangle

In a country known for its dazzling opulence, explore the innumerable facets of India’s most precious gems.

The crown of the nation, The Golden Triangle holds precious stones of ruby and quartz hued architectures within its three grand cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. Begin by roaming beautifully chaotic bazaars and forts of scarlet and gold, unearthing the Arabic inscriptions carefully engraved within the silky marble of the Taj Mahal and following the intricate brush strokes of the paintings lining Jaipur’s City Palace hallways; stepping into the shoes of Mughal emperors and Maharajas of the past.

Follow by flying south to the aquamarine coastline of India’s smallest state, Goa. Said to have once been greater than London or Paris, Goa’s Portuguese origins make it home to an array of aged Roman Catholic churches; including the Basilica of Bom Jesus, the final resting place of St Francis Xavier. Staying upon a peninsula beside the Arabian Sea, become engrossed in Goa’s unparalleled charm that is both tranquil and electric.

Delhi, Agra, Jaipur & Goa /Itinerary

The Gems of Goa & The Golden Triangle

11nights

Day /1

Delhi

Fly from London Heathrow to Delhi with Oman Air. You will be met on arrival and transferred to The Imperial, New Delhi for a two night stay. (BB)

Day /2

Delhi

Delhi

Encased within the ancient walls of the old city beats the pulse of modern India in the largest gem of the crown, Delhi. An explosion of colour and clamorous activity, today will be spent touring the city’s historic architecture, starting with the infusion of red sandstone and white marble that form the Jama Masjid, one of India’s largest mosques. A tour of the Chandni Chowk marketplace leads onto UNESCO World Heritage sites the Red Fort, Qutub Minar and the 16th century mausoleum, Humayun’s Tomb. The day concludes with a tour to Imperial Delhi, with sites including India Gate and the Vice Regal Palace, now home to the President of India. (BB)

The Imperial

Day /3

Agra

Agra

The result of 22 years and 20,000 men, the Taj Mahal stands the pearl to Agra’s oyster on the next stop within the triangle. Commissioned by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife, the glimmering tomb is the subject of many a windowpane; including the towers of the colossal Agra Fort where the emperor spent the last of his days. Today will be spent travelling back in time to 17th century India where you will regard the sublime symmetry and intricately carved inlay of the Taj’s arches and the panoramic desert views from the fort towers at these two UNESCO World Heritage sites. (BB)

The Oberoi Amarvilas

Day /4-6

Jaipur

Jaipur

Driving west, an en route visit to the abandoned city of Fatehpur Sikri offers the chance to leisurely meander the red sandstone turrets of the former Mughal Empire Capital. In time, like a rare pink diamond formed from the Aravali Hills, the salmon-hued walls of Jaipur will be the third and final stop of the Golden Triangle. Three days makes time to study the city’s rich heritage, culture and art; firstly calling for a venture out of its boundaries to the pollen tinted courtyards of Amber Fort. Highlights within the walls of Jaipur itself include the exquisite City Palace, Jantar Mantar Astronomical Observatory and the intricate latticework of the 953 windows of the Palace of Winds; designed to allow royal women to observe celebrations in the streets below without being seen. (BB)

Rambagh Palace

Day /7-11

Goa

Goa

Flying to India’s coast, a different way of life awaits. Once a Portuguese colony, the balmy sea air encompassing the porcelain sand beaches and Crayola washed houses of Goa radiates somewhat of a European aura. Discover the many sides of this free spirited enclave; spending your days living like a local within the bustling cafes and markets, exploring the crumbling Portuguese churches of Old Goa, or spotting exotic wildlife within the sanctuaries that make up approximately one fifth of the state. With so many sides to Goa, you can seek the comfort of the familiar or reveal something altogether new. (BB)

The Leela Goa

Day /12

Return home

Transfer to Goa airport for your return flight home to London Heathrow.
