This cultural and sightseeing tour takes you to the attractive points of Delhi, such as Shahjahnabad, Chandni Chowk, and Jamsal Masjid, which is the biggest mosque in India. Other points include Humayan Tomb, which is a fine example of Mughal architecture.

Subsequently, the cultural and sightseeing tour takes you to the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. The former is the most beautiful building in the world, and the latter was built by Akbar the Great. Then it is followed by Fatehpur Shikri, which is the definition of the Mughal City.

The cultural and sightseeing tour also helps you to distinguish between the Rajput architecture and the Mughal architecture. Amber Fort is an evident. To step into Pink City Palace, which is made of pink sandstone, is to know about rare manuscripts, painting, and designs of the past India.

Mehrangarh Fort, situated at a high hill of 125 m, awaits you, and it is a treasure of courtyards and palaces, deep-terracotta latticed network, splendid collection of the trappings of Indian royalty, including some amazing elephant howdahs, miniature paintings and the inevitable Rajput armoury and ephemera-from ivory inlaid ladies dumbbells to camel-bone carpet weights.

The cultural and sightseeing tour also takes you to 'Golden City,' for example, Jaisalmer. Its fort looks like as if it has grown out of the desert. Explore all its sandstone-sculpted buildings, such as Patwo Ki Haveli, Salim Singh Ki Haveli and Nathmal Ki Haveli.

In the same way, the cultural and sightseeing tour familiarizes you with all the palaces, towers, and temples, made by different Maharajas of Udaipur and Mewar in the 6th century.
