From Delhi onto Agra, loose yourself in the romance of the majestic Taj Mahal. At Scott Dunn we’ll ensure you beat the crowds so you can enjoy the this iconic landmark and its profound history.

Not far from the cities of Delhi and Agra, find Lucknow. To the east of Agra, it provides an extraordinary mix of old and new.

Explore Gwalior Fort, take a stroll around the modern Sun Temple or marvel at the architecture and opulence of Jai Vilas Palace.

Finally to the ghats of Varanasi which lead to the Ganges River. This spiritual and spectacular place which sits just south of Delhi is easily accessible and offers a truly unforgettable experience like no other. Take in the colors, smells and enchanting sounds and witness everyday life along the banks of Mother Ganga.
