Itinerary

Upon your arrival at the airport, our representative will be there to extend a warm welcome and provide assistance.

Nestled along the western bank of the Yamuna River, Delhi's expanse stretches over the river, interweaving a historic legacy with a vibrant contemporary essence. Boasting a rich historical background and a lively modern ambiance, Delhi is home to some of the nation's most exquisite museums. The creation of New Delhi as the capital was a vision realized by the British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens (1869-1944), resulting in a city adorned with tree-lined avenues and spacious landscapes.

Embarking on a new day after a delightful breakfast, your journey takes you to the heart of Old Delhi. Immerse yourself in the bustling energy of Chandni Chowk as you partake in a rickshaw ride, meandering through narrow alleyways adorned with vibrant markets and bustling local shoppers. A visit to the nearby "Jama Mosque," an expansive ancient mosque complex and one of Asia's largest, adds a touch of historical grandeur. Your exploration continues with a drive by the Red Fort, an architectural marvel commissioned by Shah Jehan in 1648. Continuing your cultural odyssey, you pay homage at Raj Ghat, a solemn memorial dedicated to the revered Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation. Following a delectable lunch at a local restaurant, the journey takes you to New Delhi, where the grandeur of Humayun's Tomb, a testament to Mughal Emperor Humayun's legacy, awaits. This architectural masterpiece was erected in 1562, standing as a timeless symbol. Your voyage through New Delhi encompasses poignant memorials such as India Gate, a commemorative structure erected in 1931 to honor fallen Indian soldiers from World War I and the Afghan Wars. The regal President's House, a splendid abode dating back to 1931 and serving as the official residence of India's President, graces your itinerary. The awe-inspiring Qutub Minar, a towering masterpiece, also graces your path. As your day of exploration concludes, you will be transferred back to your hotel, where you can unwind and rest, reminiscing about the captivating experiences that have enriched your journey. An overnight stay at the hotel completes this chapter of your Indian adventure.

Upon your arrival, you will be greeted and transferred to your designated hotel. Situated in Uttar Pradesh, Varanasi, often referred to as the 'oldest living city,' stands as one of India's revered seven holy cities. The city's paradoxes, vibrant hues, diverse cuisine, and inclusive culture create a captivating allure. Yet, the most enchanting spectacle is undoubtedly the sweeping panorama of sun-kissed ghats and temples that stretch seemingly endlessly along the banks of the Ganga River. As twilight descends, venture to the ancient heart of the city. Aboard a private boat from one of the Ghats, you will glide past timeless temples and storied palaces, casting an enchanting silhouette upon the sacred waters. Your voyage culminates at the principal Ghat, where you will witness the captivating 'aarti' ceremony. Accompanied by the rhythmic resonance of drums, the chiming of bells, and the reverberation of prayers, the ceremony crescendos with the release of countless lamps onto the Ganga's serene surface. After the ceremony, return to your lodging. This evening, savor a distinctive Satvik Thaali, a pure and natural vegetarian feast, at a specialty restaurant. The chef will personally acquaint you with the significance of each dish, shedding light on why the locals fondly refer to this thaali as an embodiment of "non-violence in effect."

The scenes vary from pilgrims immersing themselves in the sacred waters to yogis absorbed in meditation upon the river's steps, and women engaging in the routines of laundering and cleaning utensils. A sense of timelessness pervades these sights, creating an extraordinary atmosphere. Following breakfast, a leisurely stroll guides you through the labyrinthine alleys of the old city, offering a fascinating glimpse into the intricate rituals of Hinduism. Each temple bustles with devoted attendees, while every street corner hosts humble shrines and vendors vending garlands, incense sticks, and other items essential for worship.

leading you to the revered banks of the Ganges. Here, you board a boat that carries you past temples, forgotten palaces, and the crematorium, where a somber queue awaits their turn to perform the last rites for their loved ones. Later, your journey continues as you drive to the airport and embark on your flight to Khajuraho.
