Essential Tour of India’s Golden Triangle

One of the most memorable trips around India is the journey of the three ancient, North Indian cities. The busy lanes of Delhi, the love symbol of Agra, and the palaces of Jaipur mesmerise with beautiful areas and architecture such as Qutub Minar in Delhi, Taj Mahal in Agra and Hawa Mahal in Jaipur.

From historic monuments, intricate handicrafts and bazaars, to culinary delights – the Golden Triangle tour is a perfect way to enjoy the Incredible India!


Delhi is the first stop of the triangle. It is so vast, and often intimidating to the first time visitors. So make sure you have at least a day or two to cover all the important monuments, museums and libraries where history unfolds.

India Gate-Delhi


We’d recommend you to take a tour of architectural marvels such as Red Fort, Qutub Minar Jama Masjid. And if you want something unique then you should visit Nizamuddin Dargah for an enchanting experience with Sufi music. You can book a certified Tour Guide to help you with the ways, share the rich culture of this city, and introduce you to best local markets and mouthwatering street food.


Once the center of the Mughal Empire, Agra is the most popular tourist destination thanks to Taj Mahal – the everlasting epitome of love and one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Another set of must visit places here are the Agra Fort, Fatehpur Sikri and Buland Darwaza.

Taj Mahal-Agra


Local markets in Agra are famous for their handicrafts, pottery works, delectable petha, laal maas and more. And, if you love to collect souvenirs, don’t forget to take a miniature replica of the Taj Mahal!


Jaipur, also known as Pink City, is famous for the beautiful palaces and impressive forts. The sightseeing commences with the journey from Amer Fort, Jaigarh Fort and Nahargarh Fort, which offer breathtaking aerial view of the city, to Jal Mahal located amidst the lake, and finally to Hawa Mahal, a honeycomb structure with 953 beautifully sliced windowpanes.

Among the many delightful things to do in Jaipur is shopping. The bazaars of Jaipur are best known for their native handicrafts, from jewellery to traditional home décor items. The folk music and traditional dance forms are also sure to be experienced.

To truly uncover the essence of India, a trip to the Golden Triangle is a must!
