Golden Triangle weekend trip

Only £199pp — Includes private transport, accommodation, meals, and entrance fees

The Golden Triangle is a classic introduction to India and comprises of the three most visited cities in the country's north-west - Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. Walk the crowded streets of the sprawling and fascinating Indian capital, Delhi, and tour around all of the main attractions . You'll also get the chance to explore Agra, once the heart of the Mughal empire that boasts the unparalleled beauty of the Taj Mahal.

The highlight of any trip to India has to be seeing the magnificent Taj Mahal. Arguably the most beautiful building in the world, the Taj Mahal is a symbol of India that is a must see on any trip to the country. Everyone will be up bright and early to make our way to the Taj Mahal for sunrise and an English-speaking guide will teach you all about the story that inspired the building of the Taj Mahal and the sad tragedy involved in creating it.

As a group we will explore everything this incredible region has to offer, including:

  • Watching the sun rise behind the Taj Mahal
  • Getting lost in the hustle and bustle on the streets of Delhi
  • Touring around Agrasen Ki Baoli and India Gate
  • Learning all about the culture at Lotus Temple and Akshardham Temple
