Fly to Delhi for a two-night stay.
Sightseeing begins with a drive past the Red Fort and a walk through Chandni Chowk Bazaar to Jama Masjid, India’s largest mosque. You will also have a brief stop at India Gate and visit the Lakshmi Narayan Hindu Temple, Humayun’s Tomb and Connaught Place Markets.
Leave Delhi this morning and drive to the historic city of Agra, visiting Sikandra en route to see the marble Tomb of Emperor Akbar.
Rise early to view the Taj Mahal in all its glory at sunrise. The Taj Mahal was built by Emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his third wife and is Agra’s most famous monument to love. Later, visit a marble inlay workshop and the Agra Fort. After dark return to the fort to enjoy a spectacular sound and light experience.
Travel to Jaipur, stopping at the ghost city of Fatehpur Sikri en route. The next stop is Abhaneri village to see the Chand Baori Stepwell and marvel at this ancient construction. Afterwards continue to Rajasthan’s capital, Jaipur.
Begin with a photo stop at Hawa Mahal, also known as the ‘Palace of the Winds’, before travelling to the impressive Amer Fort. Continue to the City Palace, Jantar Mantar Observatory and the local bazaar.
Travel to Gurgaon 30km from Delhi, for an overnight stay. This evening experience the ‘Kingdom of Dreams’, a live entertainment venue where you will watch a magical Bollywood performance.
After breakfast visit the Delhi Haat and enjoy some free time to shop and pick up last minute souvenirs. Return to your hotel where you will have some time at leisure and a late checkout before transferring to the airport for your flight to Australia, arriving home the same or following day.
All of our tour departures include international flights and taxes in the price. Our tour prices are from prices based on per person, twin share and are subject to the availability of specific economy class fare levels. If the dates we have available for this tour don't suit your needs, or you are not sure travelling as part of a group is for you, maybe a Private Tour would be more ideal.
Most nationalities require a visa when travelling to India. Travellers should arrange visas well in advance of departure. Unlike many other tour operators, we include your visa in the price of your tour. We handle the entire application process – all you need to do is complete the paperwork and send your passport to us eight weeks prior to departure. We are always on hand to help you with any queries you may have while completing the application form.
While travelling overseas, the Wendy Wu Tours contact number during business hours is +61 2 9224 8888.
Emergency Assistance (24-hours) is 0044 1888 288 288.
You will find mobile phone coverage to be quite high throughout Asia. We recommend contacting your mobile carrier if you intend to use international roaming during your holiday and ensure you investigate all associated call and data costs before you leave Australia. Some hotels may have Wi-Fi, which usually comes at a cost.
Tipping is not commonplace in Australia. In Asia however, it is anticipated that a tip be given to reward good service. With that in mind, we have a tipping system for our group tours. Each passenger ‘tips’ a set amount to the National Escort at the start of the tour or on arrival in each country. They then distribute this as appropriate.
Tipping is appreciated for Private and Tailor-Made travel. In your final documents, we include guidelines for tipping when travelling independently.
Shopping is a fun and entertaining component to any travel adventure. In keeping with most people’s interests while on holiday, your tour includes a reasonable number of opportunities to shop for local goods and souvenirs. Included are visits to establishments that provide locally produced goods, unique to your destination. Witness the creation of these products, and see first-hand how their production supports the local economy. As most travellers like to take home souvenirs, we ensure the shops you visit have a reputation for quality, honesty, and authenticity.
We aim to cater to the tastes of the majority of people and so the food is not too spicy or too unusual.
Breakfast at your hotel includes local and western dishes. A myth about India is that the food is of poor quality and always spicy. This is definitely not the case! In addition, a great deal of Indian cuisine is vegetarian.
Drinks are at your own expense. Beer is widely available. Bottled drinking water and soft drinks are widely available – you should only have ice, juices, or lassies from a trusted source that uses boiled or bottled water.
