Overview
What to Expect
This morning you will be transferred from your hotel in Jaipur to Jaipur railway station for the train departing at 06:00 AM for Delhi / Sarai Rohilla train station. Upon arrival in Delhi, you will be met by your private English speaking guide.   You will embark on a New and Old Delhi tour in a private air conditioned vehicle.

Your tour will start in New Delhi. Drive along Rajpath - the capital's broadest avenue. Along the way you will see Parliament House, a low, circular structure that covers more than five acres of land. You will also see India Gate, a 138-foot-high, arch-shaped structure that stands at the eastern end of Rajpath. It is inscribed with the names of 85,000 Indian Army soldiers who lost their lives in World War I. Below burns the Amar Jawan Jyoti, the Eternal Flame, in tribute to all martyred soldiers of India. Next, proceed to Humayun's Tomb, commissioned by Humayun's widowed queen, Haji Begum, in the sixteenth century. Architecturally it is the forerunner of the world-famous Taj Mahal. You will also have a chance to visit Qutab Minar, a soaring, 238-foot-high stone tower, which was built by Qutab-Ud-Din Aibak in the twelfth century. At its base is the Quwwat-Ul Islam Mosque, the first mosque to be built in India. A twenty-three-foot-high iron pillar, which was built in the fourth century, stands in the courtyard of the mosque. After viewing Qutab Minar, you will move on to Birla Temple, which is one of the major landmarks of New Delhi. The temple, built in 1939, is dedicated to Vishnu and enshrines almost all the deities of the Hindu pantheon.

Lunch is included at a local restaurant. (Beverage Excluded).

Later embark on a tour of Old Delhi including the seventeenth-century walled city of Shahjahanabad. You will visit the Red Fort. Within the thick red-sandstone walls lie halls of public and private audience, domed and arched marble palaces, plush private apartments, a mosque and elaborately designed gardens. Even today, the Red Fort remains an impressive testimony to Mughal grandeur. Later, take a rickshaw ride through Chandni Chowk, the old marketplace of Shahjahanabad, which today is a picturesque bazaar. It consists of many narrow lanes that are crowded with shops selling everything from authentic Indian food and clothing to electronics.

At the end of your tour you will be transferred to Sarai Rohilla Station for your train departing at 5:35 PM for Jaipur. Upon arrival in Jaipur, you will be met and transferred back to your hotel.
