Delhi & Agra

Delhi and Agra make up two points of the classic Golden Triangle in northern India, completed by the Pink City of Jaipur. Both cities boast an incredibly rich history, stunningly beautiful architecture and fascinating local life.

The capital of India is made up of two districts, Old and New Delhi, and is home to several UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Spend a couple of days getting under the skin of this incredible city and experience the contrast between Delhi’s bustling modern life and intriguing history. Wander through the tangle of narrow lanes of Chandni Chowk market in Old Delhi, the air thick with the powerful scent of spices and incense, or stroll the vast tree lined boulevards of New Delhi. Perhaps enjoy some shopping in the boutiques and galleries of arty Hauz Khas Village, or retreat to the tranquil Lodhi Gardens and discover the impressive Lotus Temple, which is particularly beautiful at dusk.

Agra is of course home to the magnificent Taj Mahal, one of the most iconic buildings in the world and a sight that must not be missed! Although it is one of the most photographed monuments and a busy tourist hot spot, nothing can truly prepare you for the magical moment when you step through the arched gateway and catch your first glimpse. We recommend visiting at dawn or at dusk when the Taj Mahal is bathed in a soft ethereal light, adding to the romance of the experience.
