Day 2 - Delhi
After breakfast in the hotel, we’ll embrace the chaos of Delhi as we weave our way though the colourful streets and haggling alleyways embracing the energetic city.

The Jama Masjid, India’s largest mosque is our first stop and across the road the Red Fort which was the main residence of the emperors of the Mughal dynasty for nearly 200 years and is now home to a number of museums.

After we hop on rickshaw and zig zag through the narrow lanes full of traditional craft makers, soaking in the vibrance of the city, stopping at the bustling Chudiwali gali market, the India Gate and President House. All of this sight-seeing works up an appetite, so we head to a local Sikh temple for a traditional vegetarian lunch..

This evening we take a walk around Hauz Khas Village an arty pedestrianised neighbourhood known for its electric mix of trendy restaurants, art galleries, boutiques, jazz cafes and stand up comedy. The energy is infectious, the vibe hypnotic and the perfect atmosphere to have our dinner.

Built between 1631 and 1653 under the command of Shah Jahan in order to shelter the tomb of his wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died in childbirth during the delivery of their 14th child.

Agra Fort, our next stop, overlooking the banks of the Yamuna River and beautified with palaces and gardens within its ancient red walls. We’ll explore the archways, courtyards and chambers of this royal residence, hearing the exotic stories of past rulers brought to life.

The rest of the evening is free to carry on exploring this mystical city, or go back to your hotel to relax and enjoy the elegant surroundings.

Built in the 16th century, it was once the capital of the Mughal Empire. The stunning mosque displays both Persian and Hindu design and is secured by a 54-metre high entrance.

After checking into our hotel we’ll take a guided walk around the old quarter of Karauli and learn about rural Indian life.

This morning there’s an optional sunrise hot-air balloon ride over Amber Fort. Absorb the unique colours and sounds and as they blend seamlessly with the historical forts, hidden palaces and Rajasthani villages nestled amongst the Aravalli ranges.

If you’d prefer a lie-in or maybe an early morning swim, we’ll meet after breakfast to board our jeeps to take us to Amber Fort. Wander through the mirror-clad room and mosaic-filled hallways, admiring Hindu-style motifs, majestic ramparts and cobbled pathways dating back to 1592.

Continuing our city tour, this afternoon we head to The City Palace, most of it has been converted into a museum except for a small portion that is still used today by the royal family of Jaipur.

Next is The Jantar Mantar, built by the Rajput king Sawai Jai Singh II, is a collection of nineteen architectural astronomical instruments. The word Jantra is derived from yantra, instrument, while Mantar is derived from mantrana meaning consult or calculate.

The primary purpose of the observatory was to compile astronomical tables, and to predict the times and movements of the sun, moon and planets….fascinating to see.

This evening, we experience some amazing Indian hospitality with our very own cooking class. We’ll be welcomed into a families private home, an old mansion, as we help make some Indian dishes and experiment with an assortment of colourful spices.
