The Incredible India tour starts and ends in New Delhi. The Incredible India is a Bird Watching tour that takes 9 days taking you through New Delhi, India and other destinations in India.

Our 9-day Incredible India takes you north, as we explore the Golden Triangle route of Delhi, Jaipur, Agra and includes unique activities and experiences to give you an authentic Indian holiday.

We'll start in India's capital city of New Delhi, which is home to an unforgettable collage of all the cultures, religions and languages. We'll also visit Old Delhi - which served as the home of the Mughal Empire centuries ago. You'll be mesmerised by Old Delhi's rich history, exquisite architecture and its tasty street cuisine, in contrast to the modern architecture and way of life in New Delhi.

We'll also stop at the 'Pink City' of Jaipur, the capital of India's Rajasthan state. We'll explore it's highlights such as Amber Fort, City Palace and the Jantar Mantar Observatory, whilst also taking in the beautiful craft and produce markets dotted all around us. While we're in Rajasthan, we'll also visit the village of Tordi - staying in a converted palace and exploring its remote village, which will give you great insight into the daily lives of the locals who call this rural area home.

We'll visit the massive stepwell at Abanheri, which boasts approximately 3,500 steps and 13 stories, before heading to Bharatpur for a guided cycle rickshaw ride in the Keoladeo National Park, exploring its wide variety of birdlife and other wildlife.

Next on the agenda is a tour of Fatehpur Sikri, a small, deserted city in northern India, just west of Agra. Built during the second half of the 16th century by the Emperor Akbar, Fatehpur Sikri was the capital of the Mughal Empire. A local villager will take us on a Mughal Heritage Walk through villages and farmland on the bank of the Yamuna River, giving us a stunning view of the Taj Mahal.

That won't be the only view you'll get of the Taj Mahal, as we take you on a sunrise tour of this spectacular monument before we head to Agra's Red Fort. We'll make one more stop, to a visit to the Akshardham temple to watch a spectacular multimedia water show.

We'll stay in comfortable mid-range modern-style hotels in Delhi and Agra, mixed with heritage hotels converted from Havelis and Palaces in Jaipur and Tordi, and a resort on the edge of Keoladeo National Park.
Once you arrive in Delhi, you'll be met by one of our local staff, who will transfer your hotel. Once you're settled in, we'll run through the tour itinerary for the next few days, brief you on the local area and arrange a time to collect you tomorrow.

Today we head to Jaipur, the capital and the largest city of the Indian state of Rajasthan in Western India. We'll stop to visit Amber Fort, the jewel in Jaipur's crown - an ancient fortress built on a hilltop in the 16th century dedicated to the ruling Kachhawa clan of Amber. Be mesmerised by this majestic architectural wonder, with its pink sandstone and marble palace shining in the sun. It's massive fortress walls sprawls across the hills, with many seeing a resemblance of the Great Wall of China.

Today we leave the region's popular tourist areas and head into the heart of rural Rajasthan to the village of Tordi. In the 16th century, Th. Akhey Singh, one of the descendants of Khangar Singh (the founder of Khangarot clan) overthrew the regional chief and built a hilltop fortress here, the ruins of which can still be seen today. The family still lives in the palace and fort built later in the plains below and we'll stay in a wing of the palace which has been converted for guests.

Today we'll head to Bharatpur and the bird watcher's paradise that is the Keoladeo Ghana National Park. Enroute, we'll visit the Abhaneri step well, the largest and deepest step well in the world, which boasts 3500 steps and is 13 stories deep.

We head to Agra via Fatehpur Sikri, a fortified ancient city which was the short-lived capital of the Mughal empire between 1572 and 1585. This sprawling and well-preserved site is fascinating to explore. Once you’ve checked in into your hotel, we'll spend the afternoon on a Mughal Heritage Walk through the ancient village of Kachhpura and surrounding farmland on the banks of the Yamuna River across from the Taj Mahal and Red Fort. This walk has been designed by a local NGO and helps support the local community through employment and new infrastructure. During the walk one of the villagers will give a guide to their village life, the layout of their homes, with living, cooking & religious areas, the farming done, and the local cottage industry for leather shoe making which helps Agra export shoes all over the world. You'll also see some lesser known but important Mughal era monuments. Finally today we'll stroll around the park at Mehtab Bagh - originally built by Emperor Babur as the last in a series of 11 parks on the Yamuna River's east bank, before taking in the magnificent sight of the Taj Mahal at sunset.
