    I have registered with the forum to get some information about the Delhi Agra Jaipur tour package.

    Going on this tour will be my brother and parents, and we would like to know what the duration of this tour is, as we need to book our train tickets accordingly.

    Other information required is the cost of the package, we don't need the exact amount but an estimate of what the tour package would cost.

    We would also like to know what is included in the package such as accommodation, meals etc.

    Overview

    The most popular tourist circuit in India is the Golden Triangle Tour. The tour is comprised of the three cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, which together, give one a glimpse of the royal Mughal era. While you can embark on this circuit on your own, it's also beneficial to utilise the help of tour agencies. With their all-inclusive packages, transportation, meals and accommodations would all be provided on your tour of these three cities. This is especially useful for tourists who don't have much time on their hands and need to complete the circuit in a rushed pace. Below, we would highlight some of the tour operators offering a Golden Triangle Tour package and what are the inclusions in the supposed package, as well as the incurred price.

For their Golden Triangle Tour packages, you can choose accordingly, depending on the duration of the tour that you'd prefer. They also have Golden Triangle Tour packages that include other destinations in India.

    1. Delhi Agra Jaipur Tour (4 Days) - The four-day Delhi, Agra and Jaipur tour package of Indian Holidays is their shortest and most affordable Golden Triangle Tour package.
