Hello Rachel and Sanjeev,


I wanted to write to tell you my clients loved their day trip. Everything went perfectly, as you said. They said the guide was extremely knowledgeable, the sights were beautiful, lunch was delicious, and all went as planned. They had a very good time.


A tiny thing that was mentioned that seemed a little strange was that beverages, including water, were extra at lunch. It would seem that non alcoholic beverages and water would be considered part of a meal.


And a VERY BIG thank you to the tour company. An older couple from the group left their passports on the bus. They were at the train station about to head back to Delhi and someone from the tour company found them and ran them to the train station. What a disaster that would have been as they were taking a flight at 4am late that night back home. So thank you, thank you , thank you. They asked that if I could get in touch with the tour company to again express their gratitude for their efforts to please do so!


Thank you for making our clients day trip a wonderful experience.


Sincerely,

Dawn Hackett

Incredible Tour of Delhi

Delhi, the Empress of Indian cities, keeps the history still alive. These cheapest tour packages from Delhi unveil its fascinating manifolds. With its very eyes, it witnessed the advent & end of the Rajputs, the Afghans, the Turks, the Mughals & the British; the nail-biting combats amongst the reigning dynasties that kept it at unrest. We show you vivid story of its survival over ruins, remnants of might edifices, tombs of warriors & saints via this package.

Royal ‘Red Fort’

The 33 m walls made of red sandstone bring the massive Red Fort (Lal Qila) to the queue of outstanding monuments of old Delhi. The memories of magnificent power and pomp of the Mughal emperors are in this fort’s stock. The palace was fortified for restricting the entry of the invaders. But now, it seems standing alone & away from the noise & confusing life of the city. The main gate, Lahore Gate, becomes focal point of thousands of eyes on Independence Day.The vaulted arcade of Chatta Chowk, a bazaar selling tourist trinkets, leads into the huge fort compound. The Drum House, the Hall of Public Audiences, the white marble Hall of Private Audiences, the Pearl Mosque, Royal Baths and Palace of Color complete the magnificence of its enclosure.

 

Hypnotic Humanyun’s Tomb

The very first substantial Mughal architecture came into face as ‘Humanyun Tomb’. It houses amid garden. It is not so far from the crossing of Mathura road and Lodhi Road.

 

This memorial of incredible India was the desire of Humanyun’s senior widow Bega Begum. She ordered to build it in 1565 AD. The strikingly amazing garden squares with pathways water channels freeze the feet of onlookers. Mausoleum with double dome at the centre brings distinction to the architecture.

 

Several Mughal rulers were resting at peace inside this walled enclosure. In 1857 A.D, Lieutenant Hudson had captured the last Mughal emperor Bahadur Shah II.

 

Historical Stars Observatory ‘Jantar Mantar’

Jantar Mantar (Yantra - instruments, mantra - formulae) has its root in 1724. Maharaja Jai Singh of Jaipur wanted ‘the star gazing amateur’ in him to grow. His interest came out as visual observatory called Jantar Mantar. He kept the momentum going by building such observatories in Varanasi & Ujjain too for taking more accurate measurements.

 

The instruments at Jantar Mantar are cleverly designed but the trend of constructing skyscraping buildings has disrupted the accurate measurement.

 

Muslim’s Pilgrimage ‘Jama Masjid’

Largest mosque of India, Jama Masjid, houses a courtyard where 25,000 devotees together can pray. Its construction was begun in 1644 declaring the final masterpiece of craftsmen under the reign of Shah Jahan, whose love with the elegant architecture was unhidden.

 

Beautifully decorated this mosque has three great gates, four towers and two 40 m-high minarets. Wise use of red sandstone & white marble strips in its construction adds on stun to it. The Northern gate is ready with its stalls for hiring robes.

 

Martyrs Symbol ‘India Gate’

An architecture dedicated to martyrs is India Gate. This 42 m high arch crossroad truly resembles the replica of ‘Arc-de-triomphe’ of France. Around 70,000 names of Indian martyrs, who lost their lives during World War I for British rulers, & more than 13,516 British & Indian martyrs of 1919 Afghan war, are scripted on its wall. The sparkling flame of Amar Jawan Jyoti gives salvo to their unprecedented sacrifice.

 

Rajghat Memorial

Rajghat takes the visitors back to the 1948.The mortal remains of the father of India nation ‘Mahatma Gandhi’ were cremated here. An eternal flame is burning in front of an elevated black marble. This flame recalls the lessons of non-violence & restless pacifism that Mahatma Gandhi taught. His last words were ‘Hey Ram’ or ‘O’ God’ that he spat after his assassination on 30th January. These have turned immortal too, like his name, as these are embossed on the stone. The green lawn is giving it perfect enclosure. Memorial ceremony on every Friday reminds his sacrifice here.

 

Raj Ghat is honestly proving its meaning, i.e. ‘King’s Bank’. Not only Gandhi but also other Indian prime ministers are resting here at peace, for instance, Indira Gandhi & Jawahar Lal Nehru.

 

This tour package will take you to the drive of government buildings, president house, parliament house, Sikh Temple & Laxmi Narayan temple.
