Sightseeing in New Delhi
PRIVATE GUIDED TOUR
At the spectacular Delhi Durbar of 1911, the ‘King-Emperor’ George V announced that the capital of British India was to be moved from Calcutta to Delhi. Planned on a grandiose scale by the architect Edwin Lutyens and his colleague Herbert Baker, the city of New Delhi was inaugurated in February 1931. You will drive along the wide avenues of this late-imperial capital, viewing the vast complex of government buildings and the famous India Gate, built to commemorate the 70,000 Indian soldiers who died in the First World War. You will also visit Raj Ghat, the moving memorial to Mahatma Gandhi, set in landscaped gardens (pictured below), and the interesting Gandhi Museum.
Includes private transportation, guide and entrance fees.
