About this independent tour
This itinerary is completely flexible, so you can choose your own number of nights, change accommodation, add excursions and extend your holiday. We highly recommend adding a couple of nights at the Oberoi Udaivilas in Udaipur, or perhaps at the Oberoi Vanyavilas near Ranthambore National Park. Call for your bespoke quotation.
Day 1: Delhi On arrival, transfer to your hotel for one night and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure. Stay: The Oberoi, Gurgaon.
Day 2: Delhi Embark on a tour of Delhi, exploring Old Delhi’s narrow streets and colourful bazaars during a rickshaw ride before discovering the contrasting sights of New Delhi. Enjoy an evening at leisure. Stay: The Oberoi, Gurgaon. B.
Day 3: Delhi to Agra Continue to Agra for an overnight stay at a luxury resort which stands just 650 yards from the Taj Mahal. Upon arrival, embark on a tour of Agra Fort, a massive 16th-Century sandstone fort. Spend some time relaxing at your hotel before you visit the majestic Taj Mahal (closed on Friday). Its cool marble and clear symmetry are justifiably a masterpiece of the modern world and its awe-inspiring beauty has to be seen to be believed. Spend the evening at leisure. Stay: The Oberoi Amarvilas. B.

Tailor your tour
Oberoi’s exquisite hotels are some of our favourite places to stay in India. This suggested itinerary is a fantastic choice if you’re after exceptional luxury and the finest hospitality for your stay. The tour is entirely flexible, so if you want to enjoy the ‘complete Oberoi experience’, you could extend your trip and venture beyond the Golden Triangle.
You might want to spend a few extra nights in Udaipur, India’s ‘City of Lakes’, and stay at the mind-blowing Oberoi Udaivilas – set on the banks of Lake Pichola. Alternatively, you could add in a visit to Chandigarh and explore its gorgeous gardens and UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Capitol Complex. Stay at indulgent spa retreat, Oberoi Sukhvilas, and enjoy taking some time out from India's energetic cities. Shimla is a popular Himalayan metropolis set on an eight-mile ridge; discover its colonial architecture and awe-inspiring scenery. We recommend staying at mountainside hideaway, Oberoi Wildflower Hall, for panoramic views of the Himalayas.
