Day 1 : Delhi
Pick-up from Delhi Airport and transfer to guest house. Freshen up and relax, then set off on a half day tour of Delhi. Drive by India Gate, the Presidential Palace, lunch en route, and then on to Old Delhi visit impressive Red Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage site - a symbol of India's Mughal past, and now of India's sovereignty. Immerse yourself in the chaos of Chandni Chowk on cycle-rickshaw. Stroll around magnificent Humayun's Tomb and its gardens, watch it change colour as the sun starts to set. Evening to relax and enjoy sumptuous North Indian cuisine. Overnight in Delhi.

India’s capital and a major gateway to the country, contemporary Delhi is a bustling metropolis, which successfully combines the ancient with the modern. Amidst the vast spiraling skyscrapers, the remnants of a bygone era in the form of its many monuments, stand as silent reminders of the region’s ancient legacy. The first impression for any visitor travelling in from the airport is of a specious, garden city, tree-lined with a number of beautiful parks.
