Delhi sightseeing tour will begin with visit to Raj Ghat, a memorial to Mahatma Gandhi. It is located on on the banks of Yamuna River. Then you move to famous India Gate. It is also known as All India War Memorial. This memorial commemorates the death of 70,000 Indian soldiers who lost their lives in the First World War and the Afghan Wars. The first foundation of this heroic memorial was laid on 10th February 1921.

Next to India Gate is the architectural beauty “the President’s House” or Rashtrapati Bhawan. Before independence, the house was the residence of the Viceroy of India. Now, it has become the official home of the President of India. It was completed in the year 1929 after seventeen years of continuous hard work by the workers. The architect of the house is a British architect Mr. Edwin Landseer Lutyens.

From President House, you will visit to the majestic Qutub Minar. Qutab Minar is a soaring, 73 m-high tower of victory, built in 1198 AD by Turkic King Qutab-ud-din Aibak immediately after the defeat of Delhi’s last Hindu kingdom. Made up of marble and red sandstone, the Qutub Minar is included in the list of UNESCO world heritage sites.

Next to Qutub Minar is Lotus Temple, an important Bahai House of Worship. The architect Furiburz Sabha had envisioned this temple to reflect the unity of Hinduism, Islam, Christianity and Jainism. This Lotus temple is closed on Mondays. The temple is made of bright white marble and it is surrounded by beautifully designed lawns, gardens and pathways. It has nine pools with stairs and bridges.

The tour to Delhi will conclude by visiting to Akshardham Temple (closed on Monday). The temple is marvellous piece of beautiful architecture. This is a Hindu temple and also referred to as Delhi Akshardham or Swaminarayan Akshardham. The complex displays myriads of traditional Hindu and Indian culture, spirituality, and architecture. It also showcases a musical fountain in the evening.

Day 3: Delhi- Jaipur (250 km- 5hrs)

Accommodation: Overnight Hotel- Jaipur

After having breakfast, you will travel to Jaipur. Jaipur, Rajasthan’s capital, is an enthralling historical city and the gateway to India’s most flamboyant state.

Jaipur, the Pink City, is known for its historic majesty. It also produces a wide array of hand knotted, hand tufted, flat weaves, durries, shags and many other indoor and outdoor carpets, using only the finest materials, including hand spun wool, silk and cotton. Return to your hotel.

Surrounded by ramparts, this dramatically beautiful fortress is perched on a hill near the rippleless Maota Lake and grows more alluring as you approach it. You may like to ride on elephant and reach the enrapturing Amber Fort. Amber Fort is known for its artistic Hindu style elements.

City Palace would be your next destination. It is a perfect blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture. The centre of the palace is a seven-storied building called Chandra Palace, with breathtakingly beautiful views over the gardens and the Jaipur city.

Jantar Mantar (Solar Observatory) would be your next stop after City Palace. This astronomical treasure house was built by the Rajput King Sawai Jal Singh. This largest observatory ever built, is known for solar devices that give accurate predictions till date.

Next in line will be the Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds). It is a five-storied structure, built of red and pink sandstone. It was built in the year 1799 so that veiled royal women could peer down the busy street market, unseen by the world, through its 593 stone Jharokas (mini windows).

Fatehpur Sikri- It is believed to be one of the first carefully planned cities of the Mughals. It was built by Emperor Akbar in the 16th century AD. Its name basically means the ‘City of Victory.’

Tomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah, would be your next destination point. It is a Mughal mausoleum often described as a “jewel box”, sometimes called the “Baby Taj”.

I don't know where to start, Rohit was absolutely fantastic on his service, from our first email to arriving in India to the end of our 6-day tour. He made us feel safe and our every concern, issues were sorted out without any fuss. He made sure we were comfortable all the times and he checked with our Driver. Mr. Ajeet Singh (driver) who was also great, he was always on time and happy to take us where we wanted to go once our sightseeing had finished.

We felt that SafeHands customer service is excellent and Rohit understands his clients.

Also, price wise Rohit was very reasonable.

Thank you so much for planning our 6-day tour and we enjoyed every moment of it and will recommend you and your company to our friends and family.

Keep up the great work Rohit.

Safehands Travel organised a bespoke adventure to Rajasthan for me.

Kush (my guide) and the driver were wonderful travelling companions, I felt very safe which is so important for a solo female traveller. The driver skilfully negotiated some difficult roads occasionally with great care and professionalism.

Wonderful hotels chosen with care and very appropriate to my preferred taste.

I experience amazing restaurants away from the hotels, in the full confidence that Kush would choose well.

Travelled to villages off the beaten track, all adding to the wonderful experience of Rajasthan. From a camel ride across the desert to see the sunset to the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, an amazing experience I will never forget.

Kush is a great guide and made my adventure complete with his knowledge, great sense of humour and patience. His enthusiasm and love for India and the desire to share his knowledge with others is endless.

Thank you to Rohit and all at Safehands for making my adventure so easy and enjoyable. Great care and attention were taken with the details of the journey with quick response to any questions. Fantastic service from first booking to the end of my journey.

Definitely will return to India and put myself again in the exceptionally capable hands of Rohit and his team, confident in the knowledge that it will be organised personally for me with the greatest of care, professionalism and attention to detail.
