Day 1: Arrive at Delhi - most flights arrive either in the evening or at night, and we strongly recommend that our guests consider arriving a day earlier as this allows you to recuperate from jetlag and serves as insurance against international flight delays and cancellations. An additional night’s hotel stay can be added at the time of reservation.
Welcome to India, home to incredible historical monuments, a plethora of natural wonders, and the world’s most colorful culture.
You are greeted by an Easy Tours Travel Facilitator or your India Connoisseur Guide and ushered to a chauffeur driven vehicle. VIP arrival services can be added upon request. You are now driven to your top-ranked luxury hotel and assisted with your check-in if it is 3 pm or later.
A few years ago, the iconic Oberoi Delhi underwent a two-year hotel closure while undergoing a complete and exhaustive rebuild, including the installation of the Indian capital’s most sophisticated ventilation and air filtration system. Your suite at the Delhi Oberoi includes 24-hour butler service and access to the exclusive Resident’s Lounge with its associated benefits. The next day’s plans are briefly reviewed. While you are here, we recommend that you take the time to enjoy the incredible facilities of your hotel, including their heated indoor and outdoor pools and their wonderful spa and its fascinating offerings. Yoga sessions are available in the mornings.

Day 2: Delhi. (Breakfast) Begin your exploration of New Delhi with a drive through some of Lutyens’ historic New Delhi. You will stop for a view of the exterior of the massive and awe-inspiring Rashtrapati Bhawan, which was known as the Viceroy’s House during the British era. From here you can also enjoy a striking view of the India Gate at the other end of majestic and historic Rajpath, the former Kingsway.
After a very short drive on Rajpath you will arrive at the India Gate, a War Memorial to the 84,000 British Indian Army soldiers who lost their lives in the First World War, and Indian casualties in other wars. You will learn a little about the magnificent structure, which is often compared to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Explore the gardens and monuments around the area.
Continue your exploration of Delhi after a 5-minute drive to the magnificent tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun. Delhi has such an abundance of amazing monuments that this Tomb Complex (1562 A.D.) does not quite get the acclaim that it deserves.
