On arrival, we'll transfer you to your hotel for an overnight stay.Delhi is a fascinating place – together, the walled city of Old Delhi and the more modern sector, New Delhi, exemplify the colours and contrasts of all India. This is a city of fine sights – including the majestic architecture of Edwin Lutyens, the seat of power at Parliament House and India Gate, the 42-metre-high War Memorial Arch. Today, you're free to explore at your leisure. This evening, get to know your travelling companions over a welcome drink.
Close by is Mehtab Bagh, a centuries-old garden complex, which sits on the other side of the river. You'll get to see the Taj Mahal from here too, for equally wonderful views.
Later we'll travel to Jaipur, affectionately known as the 'Pink City' because all of the buildings are painted in a distinctive shade of pink. Enjoy an evening at leisure or perhaps join us for an optional cookery demonstration in a local family home, with dinner included.
