Detailed Itinerary - 7 Day Vacation from Mumbai

 

Depart from origin. If you are commencing your journey from the United States, we can recommend the best airlines and routings for your particular needs. We can also introduce you to consolidators who offer discounted fares (First, Business and Economy) on these flights. This is a service provided solely as a convenience and extra value for our guests. We do not sell airline tickets to people not touring with us.

 

NOTES:
1. Extensions can be facilitated to include more days and / or other destinations.
2. Rooms for two children 11 or younger can be included at no charge, depending on availability.
3. The Taj Mahal is closed on Fridays.




Day 1: Arrive at Mumbai (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 then ushered to a chauffeur driven vehicle. You are then driven to your hotel where you are assisted with your check in. Your vacation itinerary is 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: Mumbai – Jaipur. Personal guided sightseeing can be provided today with advance request. You will check out of your room by noon and drop your bags off at the bell desk. You are at leisure till your evening flight to Jaipur. You will need to return to the hotel by the late afternoon so that the Oberoi staff can transfer you to the airport for your flight – the timing for these needs to be confirmed between you and them at this time. Taxis are easily available for Mumbai sightseeing although we recommend that you let us arrange a chauffeur driven vehicle if you intend to drive to more than one or two city attractions.

Mumbai’s main tourism attractions are:

Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (Victoria Terminus) – The massive structure is India’s finest example of Gothic architecture and one of the world’s busiest railway stations.

GatewayofindiaPrince of Wales Museum - Built to commemorate King George V’s first visit to India in 1905. Designed in the Indo-Saracenic style, the museum has sections of art, paintings, archeological exhibits and natural history.

The Gateway of India – This is the city’s signature landmark and is located overlooking Mumbai’s harbor. This structure was built to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary to Mumbai. It is also the ceremonial gateway that the last British Viceroy departed from when India gained Independence.

Elephanta Caves –
Please bear in mind that this is usually a 5 hour excursion and we recommend that you let us facilitate this as a guided tour. You board the boat for the one hour journey from a location next to the Gateway of India. Elephanta is Mumbai’s most significant tourist attraction and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are five Hindu Caves dedicated to Lord Shiva and two Buddhist caves. Your tour will focus on the Hindu Caves. Carved out of hard basalt between 450 A.D. and 750 A.D., the main cave was an active place of worship till the Portuguese conquered the area and inflicted severe damage to the caves in the early 16th century.  In its heyday the island was known as Gharapuri (the Fortress city) and there is still a village on the island with the same name. The island was renamed Elephanta by the Portuguese. Although the caves have many massive sculptures of Lord Shiva and other divinities, the most impressive creation at Elephanta is the Trimurthi sculpture. This 20 foot tall three headed figure portrays the three manifestations of Lord Shiva – The Creator of all life, The Preserver of humanity and The Destroyer of the world.

Marine Drive and Malabar Hill Drive – Drive up to Malabar Hill, where the hanging gardens give a panoramic view of the city and the Queen’s Necklace (Marine Drive). You can then drive through the Flora Fountain and Fort area, where you will view the impressive Gothic and Victorian buildings that were constructed during the British Raj. Visit, either before you depart or when you return from this excursion.

Dhobi Ghat –
Be fascinated by the age old tradition of the Dhobi’s doing Mumbai’s laundry.  

Late Afternoon – You return to the hotel in time to be driven to the airport by the Oberoi Mumbai staff. Check-in for your flight to Jaipur. Upon your arrival at the Jaipur airport, you are greeted by an Oberoi Hotel’s chauffeur and driven to your hotel.




Day 3: Jaipur. Personal guided sightseeing can be provided today with advance request. Taxis are not that easily available and we recommend that you let us arrange a chauffeur driven vehicle if you intend to drive to more than one or two city attractions.

Jaipur’s main tourism attractions are:

Amber (Amer) Fort & Palace -  Just like the Emperors of a few centuries ago, you can enjoy the ascent Amber Fortup to the ramparts of the fort on top of a colorfully caparisoned elephant (jeeps are available instead of elephants) – if you intend to do this, we strongly recommend that you let us facilitate this experience. 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 of the Palace which are famous for their exquisite designs and handcrafted embellishments.

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 miniature paintings, costumes, and armory.

Jantar Mantar – Experience the magnificent stone observatory built by Raja Jai Singh in 1728 and is Jaipur’s sole UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Hawa Mahal (Palace of the Wind)
– This is an intriguing facade that 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.

Optional Dining Experience – Visit the home of a Rajasthani Nobleman where you can enjoy a traditional dinner with members of the family. Please request this excursion when you confirm your vacation – this experience is not always available.




Day 4: Jaipur - Agra. You are at leisure to enjoy the facilities of one of the world’s finest luxury resorts this morning or to head out for Agra in the morning – your chauffeur is available to you from 10 am onwards. Check Camel manout by noon and join your chauffeur for the journey to Agra. If you do not start fairly early in the morning (enabling you to dine on arrival at Agra), we recommend that you get a packed lunch from the hotel for your journey.
You can choose to stop at Fatehpur Sikri to explore this beautiful uninhabited city. A guide can be provided on request. It was built by Emperor Akbar between 1570 and 1585 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 on your drive to Agra. Arrive at Agra and check in to your resort on arrival.
Agra’s artists are famous for their creations in inlaid marble.




Day 5: Agra. Personal guided sightseeing can be provided today with advance request. We recommend that you let us arrange a chauffeur driven vehicle if you intend to drive to more than one or two city attractions.

Agra’s main tourism attractions are:


The Taj Mahal
- The world’s greatest monument dedicated to love is obviously a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The TajTaj Mahal 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. Sunset and sunrise (sunrise not recommended Late Dec – Early Feb) explorations are strongly recommended as it allows you to admire the sun’s rays as they play on the façade of the world’s finest monument.

The Agra Fort - The first red sandstone fort of North India 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.

Itmad-Ud–Daulah’s Tomb - This was built by 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.

Sikandra - The tomb of Akbar the Great is an important Mughal architectural masterpiece built in the 16th century. Akbar himself planned his own tomb and selected the site for it. He started the construction and, after his death, his son Jahangir completed the construction in 1613. The impressive tomb is a fascinating architectural achievement and the great gateway to the monument has a large number of inlaid patterns that are timeless in their beauty.

Mehtab Bagh - This is a beautiful 500 year old Mughal garden located across from the Taj Mahal on the other side of the Yamuna River and it offers great views of the monument, especially at sunset.




Day 6: Agra – Delhi. You can choose to enjoy the facilities at your amazing resort till just before noon. Your chauffeur is available to you from 10 am onwards. If you do not start fairly early in the morning (enabling you to dine on arrival at Delhi), we recommend that you get a packed lunch from the hotel for your journey. Check out of your resort and join your chauffeur for the drive to Delhi. Check-in to your hotel on your arrival at Delhi.




Day 7: Delhi – International Flight. Personal guided sightseeing can be provided today with advance request. We recommend that you let us arrange a chauffeur driven vehicle if you intend to drive to more than one or two city attractions.
You can choose to enjoy the facilities at your hotel till just before noon. Your chauffeur is available to you from 10 am onwards. Your vehicle and chauffeur are available to you till it is time for you to board your international flight.
If you are boarding a flight back to Mumbai, or elsewhere in India, you will be driven to the airport at the appropriate time. Please let us know if you would like us to include transfer services in Mumbai (or any other city), and if you will need a chauffeur and vehicle while you wait for your international flight check-in at this other city.
 If you are boarding your international flight (usually late evening or early morning) from Delhi, your vehicle and chauffeur stay with you until your assisted check in at the airport. This is a good time to do some last minute shopping and/or sightseeing if you are so inclined.
If your international flight departs late this night or very early on the next morning, you may want us to extend your room reservations so you can rest on this day (day use rooms are also available).

New Delhi’s main tourism attractions are:  

The Qutab Minar - This 239 ft tall medieval tower is a symbol of victory and an amazing example of architecturalQutab Minar and building skills during the 12th century.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 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 over 1500 years.

Humayun’s Tomb - 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 also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and its amazing architecture and the elaborate gardens (all currently undergoing restoration) will captivate you.

India Gate – This is Delhi’s landmark structure, photo’s of which adorn many descriptions of Delhi. There is an eternal flame that burns within this inspiring structure, in respect for the 90,000 soldiers that gave their lives during the First World War, the Afghan campaign of 1919 and the North-West Frontier Campaigns. Their names are inscribed on the walls of this grand structure. India Gate is a centerpiece of India’s civic ceremonial pathway, Rajpath, it is surrounded by long lush lawns and massive heritage structures that house various elements of India’s bureaucracy as well as other civic structures.

Rashtrapati Bhawan - This massive and awe-inspiring residence houses the President of India and was known as the Viceroy’s House during the British Womanera. It sits at an elevation from its surroundings, next to both houses of the nation’s legislature, and at the apex of Rajpath. It can only be viewed through its ornamental iron gates as tall guarded walls surround the gorgeously landscaped gardens that border the building.

Connaught Place - This is New Delhi’s downtown and is made up of a circular central shopping district that was built by the British. The huge main bazaar retains its regal architectural charm to this day and it is surrounded by tall commercial buildings that house local offices of the nation’s top corporate entities.

Bahai (Lotus) Temple – Nature’s perfect balance has been captured by the architect & creators of this masterpiece. The temple has received awards from all over the world for its architectural genius. It has received similar praise for the contentment and bliss it evokes in the souls of visitors. The lotus represents divinity in Indian spiritual belief. It portrays the magnificence of God as the unblemished flower rises from stagnant water. In a land where all the world’s religions are practiced and where the dominant religion has an abundance of Gods and Goddesses, as well as an incredible plethora of idols, The Lotus Temple contains no idols or deities to be worshipped.  

Akshardham Temple –
The Akshardham complex paints a portrait that spans ten thousand years of India’s spiritual beliefs, history, architecture and culture and manages to illuminate the grandeur and complexity of this ancient culture. Experiencing Akshardham is like going on a journey through India’s history of religious beliefs and glorious art. India’s contributions to the world and to enhancing harmony among the people that inhabit our planet are highlighted at Akshardham.

Safdarjang’s Tomb – This beautiful tomb was completed in 1754 and is surrounded by lush gardens.

Lodi Gardens – This garden is spread over 90 acres in the heart of Delhi and contains the tombs of various rulers of the Pashtun Dynasty which ruled much of Northern India during the 16th century. There are lush lawns and a plethora of flowers and plants mixed in with all the monuments.

Bangla Sahib Gurudwara – This is a gold domed Sikh Temple near Connaught Place, and the main place of worship for many of Delhi’s Sikhs.

Old Delhi’s main tourism attractions are:


The Red Fort - 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, and was completed in 1640 AD by Shah Jahan, the emperor that created the Taj RickshawMahal. 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 Jama Masjid – This huge structure was completed in 1650 AD and is 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.

Raj Ghat - 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 that surrounds the black marble platform occupying the spot where the Mahatma was cremated. An eternal flame burns next to the platform.
