Half Day Old Delhi

Now the capital of modern India, Delhi’s roots were laid as the capital of the powerful Mughal Empire. Nowhere is this legacy more apparent, and impressive, than in the old city, the focus of this 4 hour tour. Begin at the Red Fort, a walled city built by Shah Jahan, the most prolific patron of the Mughal period, whose projects include the Taj Mahal. Within the red sandstone walls are a series of gardens, palaces, and mosques, of which the Moti Majid, or Pearl Mosque is the most spectacular. A white marble building, it is one of the few remaining in its original glory. Outside the fort is the vibrant, if chaotic, atmosphere of the Chandni Chowk market district. Goods of all types can be found in its shops and stalls, while the frenetic pace of life is an attraction unto itself. Finish the tour at the Raj Ghat, a riverside park where the cremation spots of Mahatma Ghandi and Jawaharlal Nehru honor the legacy of India’s independence.

Full Day City

India is home to the world’s second largest population, a fact very much evident in the size and cosmopolitan character of its capital, Delhi. On this 8 hour tour, discover a grand heritage forged by India’s various peoples and empires. Starting in Old Delhi, visit the ruins of the once mighty Mughal Empire. Ruled by Muslim Shahs, the empire was ruled from the Red Fort, whose walls still guard a much reduced royal complex. The area also includes the gleaming Pearl Mosque within the fort, and the Jama Masjid Mosque, the city’s largest and most spectacular. Next, visit the district of New Delhi, designed and built by the British to be their colonial capital. Here the majestic Rajpath boulevard runs from the former Viceregal, now Presidential Palace, to the India Gate, a triumphal arch honoring Indian veterans of World War I. Finish with the Akshardham, a monumental complex exhibiting traditional Indian architecture, art, and Hindu cultural traditions.

Full Day Agra/Taj Mahal

One of the most famous and recognizable buildings worldwide, the Taj Mahal is part of every traveler’s wish list. Experience the pinnacle of Muslim architecture in India on this 8 hour day trip from Delhi. Shah Jahan, one of India’s most celebrated rulers and artistic patrons, ordered the construction of the mausoleum to serve as the resting place of his favorite wife. Built from 1632 to 1653, the Shah oversaw its construction, ornamenting its white marble walls with masterful inlays of gems and semiprecious stone. Below its majestic domes are some of the finest artisan stone work in the world. After visiting the riverside complex’s fantastic gardens, visit the Agra Fort, a red sandstone complex that hosted Mughal rulers. Finish with Fatehpur Sikri, an abandoned but brilliantly intact palace complex. Built by early Mughal rulers but abandoned almost immediately in the wake of political turmoil, it is a marvelous ghost town of untouched imperial splendor.

Half Day City

One of the world’s largest cities, Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay) is a cosmopolitan melting pot, India’s economic powerhouse, and home to the famous Bollywood film industry. Explore this rich culture and its beautiful surroundings on this 4 hour tour. Begin the day with the ceremonial entrance to the city, the Gateway to India. Built in the early 20th century to commemorate and host the arrival of King George V, the colossal archway is a melding of Indian architectural motifs and the European triumphant arch. Next, drive down the perfectly rounded promenade of Marine Drive, built to frame the harbor created by the merging of the Bombay Islands. At the end of Marine Drive is Malabar Hill, where the city’s best parks are decorated with elaborate topiary hedges.

Half Day Elephanta

From the Mumbai waterfront, cruise across the harbor in style aboard a private boat to Elephanta Caves on this 4 hour adventure. The island of Gharapuri sits within Mumbai harbor, and takes its name from the caves hewn out of its basalt foundations. A fascinating series of Hindu and Buddhist sites, the caves are carved directly into the hillsides. Although damaged by wear and neglect under colonial regimes, modern restorations have brought the various statues, columns, and other decorative stonework back to life. Elsewhere on the island are lush tropical forests and various vendors selling local trinkets and food. Finish the day with a ride back across the harbor to Mumbai.
