Trip Overview

India’s famed Golden Triangle is comprised of the three most visited cities: Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. During this seven-day train vacation, you’ll encounter the many faces of India. And while this is a very well-traveled route, there will be plenty of time to explore on your own and uncover each destination’s hidden gems. In Delhi, explore the city’s unique blend of ancient history and contemporary culture alongside colonial buildings while strolling down narrow, twisting streets. Visit the majestic Taj Mahal in Agra, see the deserted city of Fatehpur Sikri and iconic Chand Baori stepwells, discover Jaipur on a city tour, and enjoy a cooking demonstration and dinner with a local Indian family. That and so much more awaits along India’s Golden Triangle!
