Detailed Itinerary - 7 Day Oberoi Special

 

Day 1: Delhi. Arrive at Delhi - most flights arrive either in the evening or at night. Our services begin here. You are greeted at the airport by an Easy Tours Travel Facilitator, and ushered to a chauffeur driven vehicle. You are then driven to your hotel where you are assisted with your check-in. The next day’s plans are briefly reviewed and you are presented with your welcome package. Among other things, this package includes a beautiful handcrafted journal for your explorations, travel documents such as your air tickets and hotel vouchers, as well as copies of documents (such as our General Travel Guide) that were sent to you earlier.




Day 2: Delhi. Your exploration of India's capital city commences with a tour of New Delhi. This excuRickshawrsion begins with the awe-inspiring Qutab Minar (1193 A.D.). This 239-foot tall medieval tower is a symbol of victory and a beautiful example of Persian architecture from that period. There is a winding stairway inside the tower that goes up all the way to the balcony at the very top of the tower - unfortunately they are no longer accessible for visitors. The Qutab Minar and its Monuments are also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Within the Qutab complex, amidst the ruins of the Quwat-ul-Islam Mosque, stands one of the legendary Ashoka Pillars. This large iron pillar has withstood the ravages of Delhi’s weather (and recent pollution) and has not rusted in more than 1500 years. After the Qutab complex you will be driven to visit the magnificent tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun. Delhi has such an abundance of amazing monuments that this Tomb Complex (1562 A.D.) does not quite get the acclaim that it deserves. It is Delhi’s third UNESCO World Heritage Site and its amazing architecture and the elaborate gardens (all currently undergoing restoration) will captivate you.
There is a break for lunch.
From here you will proceed on a drive to Lutyens’ New Delhi. This drive will include photo opportunities at some of The City's numerous major attractions. This may include the exterior of the massive and awe-inspiring Rashtrapati Bhawan (known as Viceroy’s House during the British era), Delhi’s landmark structure India Gate, the Birla Temple, and Bangla Sahib Gurudwara (a gold domed Sikh Temple). This is Sikhism’s shrine, and people of all religions are welcome here. The last part of this excursion is a drive through Connaught Place, which is New Delhi’s downtown that you can explore with your guide as time permits. You are then driven back to your hotel after your tour.




Day 3: Delhi - Agra. Checkout from your hotel in the morning after breakfast, and then you start your day with a guided exploration of Old Delhi. Drive, walk and ride through the ancient city's streets and alleys; explore crowded and colorful bazaars.
This excursion includes an exploration of the Jama Masjid (1650 A.D.), the largest mosque in India. The Masjid (Mosque) is a magnificent example of Mughal architecture and is constructed of red sandstone and white marble. It is an active place of worship and its courtyard can hold 25,000 worshippers. You continue on to the amazing Red Fort that was finished a decade before the mosque. Both structures were built by Shah Jahan, the emperor who created the Taj Mahal. The great city inside the massive sandstone walls of the Red Fort offers visitors a large number of architectural and historical attractions; it was once known as the 8th wonder of the world. The Red Fort was the seat of the Mughal Empire for more than two hundred and fifty years and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is an amazing example of a blend of Persian, Indian and European architecture. You will also experience a fascinating rickshaw ride in the ancient alleys of the crowded and colorful bazaar at Chandni Chowk, followed by a walk through the ancient spice and street food market that is part of the bazaar. After these experiences a short drive will deliver you to an oasis of calm and serenity, which also happens to be your last destination in Old Delhi. The cremation site of Mahatma Gandhi (Raj Ghat) is a simple yet stirring memorial to the father of the nation. Lush lawns extend beyond the enclosure surrounding the black marble platform occupying the spot where the Mahatma was cremated. An eternal flame burns next to the platform.
There is a break for lunch.
Afternoon - You are driven to Agra on North India's newest highway. Check in to your gorgeous Agra hotel on arrival.




Day 4: Agra. You now start your exploration of Agra with a sunrise visit to the incomparable Taj Mahal. The world’s greatest monument dedicated to love is obviously a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Taj Mahal was completed by Emperor Shah Jahan in 1653 AD as a memorial to his beloved queen, Mumtaz Mahal. This spectacular white marble mausoleum was created by about 22,000 skilled craftsmen and it took twenty two years to complete. When you experience the Taj Mahal with an Easy Tours Guide and have them provide unique insights into its innumerable facets, some of their passion for this masterpiece may rub off on you! Explore the amazing Taj and its surroundings as the sun’s early rays sparkle off the semi precious stones inlaid in the pristine white marble of the world’s finest monument.
Continue your tour with a visit to the first red sandstone fort of North India, the Agra Fort. It was built in 1565 by India’s greatest Mughal ruler, Emperor Akbar. Its royal audience halls, immense stone courtyards, marble mosque and the private royal chambers give us a glimpse of the grandeur of the Mughal Empire.
For the last years of his life, The Emperor Shah Jahan was kept here under house arrest, after being deposed by his son, Aurangzeb. You will visit the Muasamman Burj, a tower with a marble balcony overlooking the Yamuna River, where according to legend, he died with a view of his beloved Taj Mahal.
After your tour, you will be driven back to your hotel, where you can have lunch and relax for a few hours to enjoy the extensive facilities at the resort.
Afternoon - continue your exploration of Agra with a visit to the famous tomb of Itmad-Ud-Daulah. This memorial was built by the Mughal Emperor Jehangir’s queen as a memorial to her father. The tombs sheer beauty will surprise you - the only reason it does not get more accolades is because it shares the stage with the incomparable Taj Mahal. Like the Taj it has amazingly intricate ‘Pietra Dura’ inlay and lattice marble screens. The mausoleum rests in a walled garden with a view of the river Yamuna. Constructed in the year 1628, most historians believe that its design provided the inspiration for the Taj Mahal.
After your exploration of the tomb, you will continue to Mehtab Bagh, which is a 500 year old Mughal garden located across from the Taj Mahal on the other side of the Yamuna River. Watch in admiration as the setting sun’s rays play on the façade of the monument, which will appear to change texture and color before your incredulous eyes.




Day 5: Agra - Jaipur. We recommend that you consider getting a packed lunch from the hotel for your journey. The dining/rest stopover during the journey offers limited choices. Check out from your hotel after breakfast, and then you are driven to Fatehpur Sikri. Enjoy a guided exploration of this beautiful uninhabited city. It was built by Emperor Akbar between 1570 and 1585 A.D. and is constructed primarily out of red sandstone. The Emperor moved his capital from Agra to this city and then, a few years later, abandoned it, returning back to Agra. Visit the tallest gateway in the world, the towering Bulund Darwaza (The Gate of Victory). In the northern part of the courtyard is the superb white marble tomb of Shaik Salim Chishti, built in 1570.
Continue with your journey to Jaipur. Arrive at Jaipur and check-in to your luxurious hotel.




Day 6: Jaipur. Start your day with an excursion to the Amber Fort and Palace, located a short distance from the walled city. Just like the Emperors of a few centuries ago, Amber Fortenjoy the ascent up to the ramparts of the fort on top of a colorfully caparisoned elephant(jeeps are available instead of the elephants, if you so desire). The massive Fort complex was originally built by Raja Mansingh and is one of India's finest examples of Rajput architecture. Explore the chambers and hallways, which are famous for their exquisite designs and handcrafted embellishments. Return to the valley beneath the Fort on your elephant or jeep and proceed back to the Pink City.
There is a break for lunch.
Afternoon - Enjoy a city tour of the walled city of Jaipur, including the magnificent City Palace. Visit Jantar Mantar (UNESCO World Heritage Site), the magnificent stone observatory built by Raja Jai Singh in 1728. After the observatory comes a photo opportunity of the Hawa Mahal (Palace of the Wind). This intriguing facade was built in 1799 so that the ladies of the court could use its unique windows and observe the bustling bazaar without being visible to the people on the streets. Continue the tour with an exploration of the City Palace, the former royal residence (a part of it is still occupied by the Royal family and is not accessible to the public), built in a blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architectural styles. This immense complex also houses a number of museums that offer a large and impressive collection of costumes, armory and miniature paintings. During this afternoon you will enjoy a brief stop for a tour of a collection of Rajput turbans. A turban tying demonstration is included, as are turban and Sari tying lessons.
Evening - You can either choose to enjoy your hotel this evening, or you can join your Tour Guide for a visit to the home of a Rajasthani Nobleman, where you will enjoy a traditional dinner with members of the family.




Day 7: Jaipur - Delhi - International Flight.
You are assisted with your checkout from your hotel by noon, and then you are driven to Delhi, where you will board your flight to your next destination.
Your vehicle and chauffeur stay with you until 9:00pm. This is a good time to do some last minute shopping and/or sightseeing if you are so inclined. If your flight departs early the next morning you may want us to arrange a room for you so you can rest.
Our services end at Delhi airport.
