Day One: Welcome to Delhi
Arrive Delhi. Meeting and assistance on arrival and transfer to the hotel for overnight. Most international flights arrive late at night. If your flight arrives at a different time we will adjust the itinerary to accommodate you.
Day Two: Delhi Old and New
This day there is a combined Old and New Delhi tour. Drive by the impressive India Gate with its eternal flame, the Presidential Palace and Parliament House; then stop to visit Qtab Minar, a 200-foot high minaret and Humayun's Tomb, the first of the great Moghul Tomb complexes. Later, you continue to Old Delhi, and drive past Raj Ghat, the monument to Mahatma Gandhi erected on the site of his funeral pyre and an important place of pilgrimage for People from all over the world. In Old Delhi see the the Jama Masjid Mosque, built by the Emperor Shah Jahan, then continue past the bustling market place of Chandni Chowk, where silver merchants ply their trade.
Day Three: Explore on Your Own or With a Guide
The day is free to explore Old and New Delhi or shop on your own. (But if you want a guide, we can arrange that easily.) There are plenty of interesting things to see, including the Red Fort, built by Emperor Shah Jehan between 1636 and 1658. You can take in the Moghul Gardens, perhaps the Railway Museum, the Digamber Jain Temple which houses a hospital for birds, or even Birla House, where Ghandi was assassinated. You could spend days doing nothing but shopping in Delhi. It may be worth a return trip to Chandni Chowk or Janpath, a great place for bargain-hunting.
If you like we can arrange a full day excursion to Agra to see Taj Mahal (closed Fridays).
