Itinerary

You land at New Delhi’s international airport and after clearing Immigrations and Customs are met in the Arrival Hall by our colleague carrying the paging board with your names on it.

Transfer to your hotel and check-in.

New Delhi is the capital of India and a microcosm of the country. It is a modern metropolis which still preserves its traditional values and manages its multiple personalities effortlessly, making it a perfect gateway city to any North India journey.

Historians believe that through Delhi’s 1000 year old history, the city has been destroyed and rebuilt eight times, each time built by a new dynasty/ruler. As a result Delhi grew and evolved, absorbing different religions, diverse cultures, both foreign and indigenous, and yet functioning as one organic entity and becoming the culturally secular city you see today.

The remainder of the day is at leisure for your own activities.
