Day 1 Half day Delhi sightseeing - Agra

As you are already in New Delhi or can reach conveniently New Delhi during morning hours, the itinerary has been chalked out as per this assumption. It obviates stay in Delhi and, thus, helps in optimizing cost as well. On arrival at New Delhi airport, you will be greeted & assisted by Optima Travels’ representative. Optima Travels representative will meet you holding a placard with your name on it at the exit.

Delhi is the capital of India and its political and cultural center. Located on the banks of the River Yamuna, Delhi has been continuously inhabited since at least the 6th century BCE. Delhi emerged as a major political, cultural and commercial city along the trade routes between northwest India and the Gangetic plain. It is the site of many ancient and medieval monuments, archaeological sites and remains. When India gained independence from British rule in 1947, New Delhi was declared its capital and seat of government. Owing to the migration of people from across the country, Delhi has grown to be a multicultural, cosmopolitan metropolis.

Today itself, you will be driven to Agra but before that you will be visiting several important monuments, places and markets of Delhi. Delhi tour guide will meet you at the airport or on the way to the first monument’s visit. Along with tour guide, proceed to visit prime tourist attractions of Old Delhi which include Red Fort (from outside), Jama Masjid (Friday Mosque), Chandni Chowk & Raj Ghat.

Chandni Chowk: One of the most prominent wholesale and retail markets of India, Chandni Chowk is more than 300 years old. It was established in 1650, when Mughal Emperor Shahjahan shifted his capital from Agra to Delhi, as an accompaniment to the fort. Jahanara, the Emperor's favorite daughter, is credited with designing this market.

Do keep in mind that Taj Mahal remains closed for visitors on Friday.

Taj Mahal’s construction started in the year 1631 and took approximately 22 years to build it. An epitome of love, it made use of the services of 22,000 laborers and 1,000 elephants. It was built entirely out of white Makrana marble. Built By: Shah Jahan; Dedicated to: Mumtaz Mahal, the wife of Shah Jahan; Location: Agra; Building Type: Islamic tomb; Architecture: Islamic.

After visiting Taj Mahal, come back to hotel for breakfast. Relax, refresh, check out and move on to visit Agra Fort.

Agra Fort is built alongside the Yamuna River and stretches almost 2.5 km. It consists of a wall built in red sandstone and several buildings inside. The wall has 2 gates, the Delhi Gate and the Amar Singh Gate.

After visiting Agar Fort, drive for the deserted city of Fatehpur Sikri. 35 kms from Agra is located deserted medieval town of Fatehpur Sikri.

The intimidating structure stands 43 meters or 140 feet on the pedestal and a cool 54 feet above the ground. The gateway is approached by a steep flight of 42 steps, which add height and majesty to the entire structure. Buland Darwaja that is counted as one of the tallest gateways in the world is almost entirely made out of the red-sandstone with a generous dose of marble decoration on it.

After visiting Fatehpur Sikri, you will head towards Jaipur, Pink City of Rajasthan. On arrival at Jaipur, you will be received by our representative and directly transferred to Jaipur hotel. Jaipur has been laid according to the conventional nine-grid pattern that astrologers believe to be lucky, and which has been recommended in the ancient Indian treatise on architecture. Jaipur has much to offer visitors — everything from pageants and festivals to extraordinarily clad people, a wealth of handicrafts, a royal legacy of palaces, and sightseeing — that will occupy their time. However, should the visitors simply choose to walk around the streets of the old city instead, they will not regret it. All of Jaipur is an architectural gem, and no scheduled sightseeing can even hope to do justice to this rare city.

Spend the evening in leisure and have overnight stay in Jaipur hotel.

The Mubarak Mahal also houses a museum named after Maharaja Sawai Man Singh.

Hawa Mahal: Hawa Mahal or the "Palace of Winds" is the most striking monument in Jaipur. Though its name suggests it to be a palace, in really it's not a palace.
