I’m sure your tour guide will have a good list of the things to see around Delhi. The obvious things like Gandhi’s House, India Gate, Red Fort and Humayuns Tomb will all be on the list. Jama Masjid Mosque is worth a visit. It’s in Old Delhi and it’s great to see the difference between the two parts of the city. Be prepared to leave your shoes outside at the gate and be bare footed walking around the place. I can’t recall if they made women cover their heads, but I would advise women to wear a long sleeved top as a lot of places will expect them to be covered. I may be recalling this wrongly, but I think it was the mosque that gave me a blanket type thing to wear as a skirt as I had three quarter length trousers on and they wanted me covered. I visited quite a few tombs whilst in Delhi, but I think it was Safdarjungs Tomb that stood out the most. Defo worth a visit. Couple of other things. Be prepared to pay “White man prices” for entering any of the tourist spots. Generally only charge the locals about 10Rs (about 12p) but will charge tourists about 250Rs (about £3). Not very expensive, but they fair hike it up compared to the locals prices. Some places will charge you separately for a camera. I had a proper camera with me, but not sure how they manage it with iPhones and such likes these days. For Agra, Taj is the only place worth visiting. As mentioned elsewhere, see it at sunset from the fort and then get in for sunrise. You park up about 500yards and will be carted to the taj on a golf buggy. They don’t allow vehicles within a set distance of the taj. It is breath taking. Possibly the most amazing experience from my travels. Get out of Agra as quickly as possible! Jaipur is a decent city. “The Pink City” and you will see why (although my wife said it’s Terracotta [emoji23]). You have the huge lake that was used to film one of the James Bond films. They were looking to renovate the building that is in the middle into a hotel. That was about 4/5 years ago. Unsure if they actually proceeded with it. Amber Fort is worth a visit and you get some amazing views from the top. You can take an elephant ride up for about £10. Worth it for the experience but it’s not the most comfortable ride. I never done too much else in Jaipur as I was tired from the previous days in Delhi and Agra. Your tour guide will almost certainly take you into one of the local shops, which they will no doubt say it’s their cousins or such likes. Depends if it’s your thing or not, but they will rip you off. When selecting hotels, I would suggest sticking to the big chains (Raddison, Hilton ShangRaLa etc) as the smaller chains are touch and go. Raddison Blu in Agra is very good! If you have a fair amount of disposable cash then consider staying in Oberoi in Agra. It overlooks the Taj and the views are meant to be out of this world. I looked at it but I am sure it was about £500 a night, which ruled it out for me. Eating wise, the big chain hotels are very westernised and will cater to your tastes. The food is not spicy in India so wouldn’t worry too much. When eating out and about, you will see all the usual fast food chains. I would avoid any of the street food places as the quality of the meat is questionable at best. Also, you won’t see beef on the menu anywhere. If it’s being offered then it is likely buffalo or similar. If you do order a curry, if in a western place then it will probably be chicken breast, but if it’s not westernised then me prepared for chicken to be on the bone. Mutton was popular on the menus, but it wasn’t really to my liking. Be prepared to encounter some of the most awful smells and you will very likely see rats and such likes about the cities. India is an amazing country. People are very friendly, but they may come across as rude. They have no concept of queuing and will push in front of you as if you’re not there. You will see a lot of poverty and begging around the cities. Quite often they have some physical disability and will play on it to get money from tourists. People think India is really cheap, but it’s not really the case if your a tourist and sticking to more western places (hotels/restaurants). It’s probably slightly cheaper to eat and drink than the UK, but not miles cheaper. From memory, a main course would be about £8-10 and a bottle of beer about £2.50. They heavily tax alcohol in most states and anything imported will cost you a fortune. Sula is a brand of wine that is made in the country. Not as heavily taxed but it’s not really the best. Any imported wine will set you back about £20 a bottle, which you would pick up for £4-5 here. I can’t really the lager that I was drinking in the north, but it was Kingfisher that was the main brand when I was living in the south. Budweiser was available as well as some other well known brands. It’s all bottled beer and I cannot recall seeing much draft beer or offer anywhere in India. They love their whiskey in India, but same issue with tax making imports expensive. Some of the local stuff is actually ok. They also take their smoking laws pretty seriously in India, with pretty much the same laws as the UK. Cigs are cheap and about £3 a packet. Ill probably add some other bits and bobs as they come back to me. You will have the trip of a lifetime. I will go back one day and do it again myself. I love hearing about people going out for a tour and I’m extremely jealous! Let us know how you get on.
