Golden Triangle & Tigers

For the first time visitor with limited time but the desire to spot a tiger in the wild while seeing mainstream India; this tour covers the well traversed tourist circuit called the Golden Triangle, and also includes one of the better managed tiger parks, Ranthambore.

Golden Triangle & Tigers

Delhi, the capital city offers a blend of the old and the new in the same city, busy bazaars in one and open tree-lined boulevards in the other; Agra has on proud display a shimmering marble edifice on the banks of the Yamuna, the Taj Mahal; Jaipur is a display of colours and the royal splendour of Rajasthan.
