India Sightseeing

India is incomprehensibly large and complicated. With over 400 languages spoken, a myriad of religions, and a number of famous super cities, India can often be daunting to the first-time traveller. On the other hand, India is home to a soul-stirring array of landscapes and cultures, and those who come here often find themselves returning again and again. If your curiosity is already piqued by India’s offerings, but you feel intimidated when it comes to getting to know the place, an India sightseeing guide will help you assimilate quickly and comfortably.

For some, India sightseeing can mean exploring the country’s vast collection of temples, or simply perusing a market stall for the best eats. Thankfully, there is no shortage of guides available to suit your every whim. Delhi is often a traveller’s first stop in India, and historic Old Delhi is a must-see in the process. Your guide can take you to see the magnificent Red Fort, the Jama Masjid (India’s largest mosque), and the memorial to Mahatma Gandhi. A rickshaw ride in the “silver street” of Chandani Chowk is encouraged before setting off to New Delhi, where attractions include the likes of Bhai Temple, Qutab Minar, and the city’s stunning government buildings.

You can also pair your India sightseeing tour with some food sampling along the way. Many Indians feel that their home cuisine is misrepresented around the world, but here in Delhi it’s possible to experience authentic Indian flavours. Between nibbles, you can visit the Chawadi Bazaar, Chandani Chowk, Connaught Place, the Spice Market, and more.

India Sightseeing Continued...

Agra is where you go to see the world-famous Taj Mahal, that immense mauseoleum of white marble and a UNESCO World Heritage site. If you’re familiar with one image from India at all, it’s probably that one. While there, your guide can take you sightseeing in India’s Agra Fort, another stunning structure with similar importance.

From Agra, it’s easy to reach Jaipur, a beautiful city and home to the impressive Amber Fort which sits on a ridge. Jaipur is known as the Pink City, because of this dominant colour found everywhere you turn. Your guide can take you to the City Palace, still home to the Maharaja but now allowing visits from the public, as well as Hawa Mahal “Palace of the Winds.” One particular highlight in Jaipur is its colourful bazaar, where you’ll find all manner of odds and ends.

For something entirely off the grid, Odisha is the coastal land of temples, tribes, tigers, and textiles. A knowledgeable guide can introduce you to these tribes and villages while at the same time providing valuable information about wildlife in the area. Visiting the arts and crafts villages also gives a prime opportunity for souvenir shopping!
