Today explore Old Delhi. You'll visit Deepalaya school, an A&K philanthropy project where you interact with the school children and assist with an English or music lesson.
From Delhi you'll set off to Agra in a private car to explore the city's fascinating history, and learn about the famous story of Emperor Shah Jahan and the ultimate testiment to love the Taj Mahal, which he built to honour his wife. After a visit to Agra's fort, it is time to see the Taj Mahal itself. A horse-drawn carriage will transport you to this breathtakingly beautiful building at sunset as its white marble turns pink. Visit the Taj Mahal and fort at Agra.
The following morning there is a second visit to the Taj Mahal, this time at sunrise, before boarding a train to the tiger heartland of Ranthambore National Park.
Morning and afternoon game drives through the beautiful reserve may result in sightings of sloth bears and Bengal tigers amongst numerous other species of Indian wildlife. While here you'll have time to visit some of the surrounding local villages to see how communities live in the rural Rajasthani countryside.
