A nine-night India tour taking you from iconic city monuments to the crisp mountain air, with five-star hotel stays– includes all travel, breakfast, an iconic Toy Train journey and sightseeing tours

A riot of colour, noise and activity, there are few more intoxicating destinations on the planet than India. From imperial palaces to chaotic bazaars, this kaleidoscopic country promises an altogether enlightening, humbling and awe-inspiring experience that gets right under your skin.

This nine-night tour begins with a stay in the capital of Delhi, with two nights at the five-star Sheraton New Delhi Hotel. In this bustling metropolis, you’ll experience a full-day tour of Old and New Delhi. You'll drive past the Presidential Palace and visit Humayun's Tomb – a precursor to the Taj Mahal. You'll also get to marvel at the Qutub Minar, a UNESCO World Heritage Site built in the early 13th century, and you’ll take a thrilling rickshaw ride through the markets.

Next, it's onwards to Agra and the five-star ITC Mughal. You'll travel two kilometres to see the most famous love memorial in the world, Shahjehan’s white-marble Taj Mahal, before heading to Agra Fort – one of the finest forts in the country – and seeing the red sandstone monuments and temples of Fatehpur Sikri, once the capital of the Mughal empire.

The alluring ‘Pink City’ of Jaipur is your next stop and the five-star ITC Rajputana your fabulous base. Embellished with royal heirlooms of past Maharajas, fast-paced Jaipur holds majestic palaces, imposing military forts and exceptional shopping. Your city tour reveals the Hawa Mahal ("Palace of Winds"), Amber Fort, the Jantar Mantar observatory and the opulent City Palace complex.

Next, you’ll transfer by train to the mountainside city of Shimla, where you’ll stay within the heritage-meets-luxury comforts of The Oberoi Cecil. A half-day sightseeing tour here will reveal the fantastic architecture of the Vice Regal Lodge, before a stroll up the Mall to Scandal Point. You’ll exit in style – on board the fantastic Toy Train, before boarding the Shatabdi Express to make your way back to Delhi. After a final night in Delhi, it's time to (reluctantly) fly home.
