Connect to your flight to New Delhi, India, arriving late tonight to a traditional warm welcome. Transfer to hotel.
Day 2: Delhi
Delhi, the capital of India and third largest city, consists of two parts: Old Delhi and New Delhi. After breakfast, take a guided tour of New Delhi, and such sights as Humayun's Tomb (1586); Qutab Minar, 72-meters high and one of the most perfect towers in the Persian world; 1,500-year-old Iron Pillar. Tour the Embassy area, Government buildings, and Connaught Place, heart and main shopping district, Akshardham Temple. Cross the city into the walled gates of Old Delhi. Old Delhi draws one through congested roads and lanes, interesting mosques, monuments and old forts. Tour includes the Jamma Mosque (1650), and fabled Chandni Chowk (Moonlight Square), where the throngs of shoppers and vendors meet in the oldest area of Delhi. On to Red Fort, built between 1639 and 1648 by Shah Jehan, who also built the Taj Mahal. Visit Raj Ghat and nearby ghats where Mahatma Gandhi and his descendants were cremated. One of the highlights today is riding on a three-wheel cycle rickshaw that has a sofa seat in the back. The Rickshawalla (Rickshaw driver) sits on a small cushion in front. This is a remarkable way to explore colorful, crowded narrow winding streets and pavement shops selling wares of all description. This evening, enjoy a welcome Dinner in a Big Five family home for a taste of traditional Indian hospitality and traditional Indian food, and learn more about Indians and their country.
