Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • On arrival in Delhi Airport be greeted by your Audley representative and your driver who will stay with you for your time in India. Drive to your hotel. The remainder of the day is at leisure. You might like to explore Delhi using a local rickshaw or simply relax at your hotel.

  • Today get a real feel for Delhi, exploring the old and new areas of the city. Starting off in the Old City, experience the sights, smells and people of Chandi Chowk Bazaar with your private local guide. Driving over to New Delhi, you will see some of the architectural highlights including the iconic India Gate.

  • This morning enjoy a city walk that takes you through the enchanting backstreets of Paharganj, run by the Salaam Baalak Trust, a non-profit organisation, your guide who is a former street child will provide a unique and humbling insight into Delhi life. In the afternoon travel three hours to Agra by road. On arrival you may like to explore the Baby Taj and Red Fort.

  • Rise early this morning to see the iconic Taj Mahal at sunrise. At this time the beautiful site is at its quietest allowing for more of a tranquil experience. Drive onwards for about five hours to Jaipur with your driver today, via the abandoned city of Fatehpur Sikri where you can stop to explore. The tales of the Emperor who created the city are fascinating. Easy to explore independently, we don't tend to find a guide is necessary, but if you are particularly interested in the history, we can arrange this for you. Arriving into Jaipur, you have the evening to relax.

  • Today enjoy a private guided tour of Amber Fort, the original Maharaja's Palace, which lies 40 minutes outside the city. Drive back into the city to explore sights of Jaipur itself, which is fondly known as the Pink City, including the City Palace and the Palace of the Winds. It's a busy city best explored in parts on foot.

  • This morning is free to relax in Jaipur. You might like to visit some of the local markets which are famous for their textiles and fabric painting. After a leisurely start to the day, travel by road back to Delhi and stay in an airport hotel, a convenient base for your onwards flight tomorrow. The drive takes about five hours but your driver can suggest places to stop along the way if you wish.

  • An early start as you are taken to the airport for your flight to Male. On arrival into Male you are met by a resort representative and transferred by speedboat to Kurumba. Here you can enjoy your time in the Maldives and enjoy your time at leisure relaxing on the beach.

  • Today you have the day to simply relax and recover from the busy pace of India, or explore your Maldivian Island. Spend some time in the spa, or relax with a book by the beach or pool.

  • Another day free to relax. Consider taking a cocktail master class, or cooking lesson in one of the hotel's kitchens.

  • Your final day in the Maldives. With crystal clear waters and a vibrant array of marine life, it's worth taking some time to snorkel or dive. Guided snorkelling and diving trips are available to book at the resort, or simply wade in right from the beach.

  • This morning you will be transferred by speedboat back to Male to catch your onwards flight home.
