Itinerary & Notes

Namaste and welcome to India! You will be met at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport and whisked off to your accommodation, where you can freshen up before heading out to explore the majestic boulevards and avenues of New Delhi.

Visit India Gate, built in memory of the Indian soldiers who died in World War 1 and drive along Presidential Avenue for a photo stop at Rashtrapati Bhawan, the official residence of the Indian President. Visit the remarkable UNESCO World Heritage Site, Humayun’s Tomb, the tomb of the Mughal Emperor commissioned by his son Akbar in 1569. Designed by a Persian architect it was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent and the first structure to use red sandstone at such a scale. Later, visit Qutab Minar, the 72.5-metre high brick minaret, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, dating back to the 13th century.
