Also visit Raj Ghat, the memorial site of the Mahatma Gandhi; Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India; and Chandni Chowk, the bustling and colourful market of the old city. Continue to New Delhi.

Testimonials 


We had a fabulous trip!  We have been talking about it non stop with friends and family since we have been home. Thank you so much for arranging everything for us. All representatives were efficient, helpful and pleasant to deal with. The highlight of the trip was our Egyptologist Joseph. He was so knowledgeable, organized, efficient and most of all fun.  We all wanted to adopt him and bring him home with us. We certainly will recommend your tour to others.
We selected the optional tour of the Super Safari - what a blast - great variety of activity and tons of fun.  We also took in the Sound and Light show at the Pyramids but were disappointed in this. We were very pleased with the optional Cairo, Alexandria and of course the Abu Simbel tours as well.  Well worth the time and money. Thanks again.
