The Golden Triangle Tour

The Golden Triangle Tour in India is a popular itinerary that covers the three most famous cities in northern India: Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. This is the quintessential tour of India - the signature of the country. It includes visits to the iconic landmarks of each city such as the Taj Mahal in Agra, the Red Fort and Qutub Minar in Delhi, and the Amber Fort and City Palace in Jaipur. The tour also includes visits to other historical sites, temples, and local markets. The luxury Golden Triangle Tour is a perfect way to get a taste of India's rich culture, history, and heritage. We can recommend adding in Ranthambore National Park for tiger sighting, fly to Kerala for another week, or may be fly to Goa for a relaxing holiday at the end. You can also carry on with the land journey to Rajasthan to see the important highlights.
