Day 1: Humayun's Tomb

Welcome to New Delhi, India! You have landed at Indira Gandhi International Airport. Just a half hour away is your first stop; Humayun's Tomb! The tomb started to be built in 1565 AD and was finished in 1572 AD because the emperor (Humayun) recently died, and the empress demanded a tomb be built for him. But the tomb looks more like a palace.

The inside of Humayun's Tomb is a mix between Indian and Persian art styles. Once, Humayun's Tomb and the garden were attacked because the last Mugal Emperor was staying in there. Luckily William Finch [an English merchant who went to trade with the king right before the attack] was able to describe it so it was rebuilt.

The palace's creation costed India 1,500,000 rupees, the currency of India. In American dollars it would be: $21,666.66. Just think how much more it would cost today with construction companies, plumbing, utilities, and etc.

When you go outside, you can enjoy the wonderful garden! But don't let that trick you. The garden is home to over 150 tombs [Each with exciting history to share] and corpses! Hey... that would be a good zombie movie plot!! Afterwards you will spend your time at the hotel, "B Nineteen Bed & Breakfast"! Enjoy your stay!

Day 2: Taj Mahal

Today in our tour, make sure to drop off your luggage at the hotel, bring lots of ice water, sun screen, and light cloths, because it will be very hot when you visit. Before the tour, you may walk around Agra and have breakfast at some local restaurants. Today you will visit a mausoleum of grandeur and love, the Taj Mahal. Here, you will learn about the interesting and rich history of the palace, ensuring you will be an expert by the time you leave. But feel free to roam the grounds before the guided tour begins.

We will first board a helicopter at a local airport for a breathtaking aerial view of the Taj Mahal, and get an exclusive view you will never forget. After the aerial tour we will take a bus from the airport back to the Taj Mahal for a more in-depth tour. When you explore the grounds, you may leave your shoes on, but when you are ready to go inside, we will provide special booties for those of you that would like to keep your shoes on. If you don’t want them, you can remove your shoes and go in with your socks or bare feet. Like earlier, you may stay after the guided tour for a more personal experience.

After you visit the Taj Mahal, you are free to walk to the nearby shops. Or if you’re looking for some amazing places to eat and rest, you should check out the Bob Marley Cafe, YES Restaurant, and Dostea Cafe to get a unique taste of an Indian cuisine. You may also enjoy visiting the Taj Gift Shop for souvenirs to remember the amazing experience you had here. After you explore, we will meet up at your 5 star hotel, the Trident Agra.

You can also visit the upper view point which has a great view of the Ajanta caves we will then eat dinner at the hotel and stay the night.
