Overview

In this tour you get to explore three of Delhi’s most famous monuments, the Red Fort, Qutub Minar and Humayun’s tomb. You will do so on your own assisted by a GPS enabled audio-visual guide. Afterwards, you may select three more sites to visit in the city. This is a self-guided tour with a digital guide, a private vehicle and a driver. You will have the luxury of customizing your itinerary according to your interests.

Highlights
• Red Fort
• Qutub Minar
• Humayun’s Tomb

You will be picked up from your hotel in the morning and given access to a GPS enabled audio-visual digital guide that can be downloaded on your smartphone. The guide helps you to navigate from the entrance of the monuments to various points of interest inside. Please note that the guide can be used only at the Red Fort, Qutub Minar and Humayun’s tomb.

Visit the Red Fort, the main residence of the Mughal Emperors for nearly 200 years up to 1856. The fort was built by the fifth Mughal Emperor Shahjahan. Precious marble structures were destroyed during the invasion of the Mughal Empire by Nadir Shah in 1747. More destruction followed at the hands of the British during the revolt of 1857 after which the fort was used as a garrison. The British put the last Mughal Emperor, Bahadur Shah Zafar on trial in this fort before exiling him to Rangoon in 1857. The historical significance of the Red Fort is underscored by the fact that to date it is used for hoisting the national flag on 15th August every year. That day marks the Indian Independence day.

Also visit Qutub Minar, a UNESCO World Heritage site located in the Mehrauli region of Delhi. It is a 240 feet high minaret with five storeys. It was built as a victory tower in 1193 by Qutub-ud-din-Aibak after he defeated the last Hindu king of Delhi. At the foot of the tower is the first mosque built in India, the Quwwat-ul-Islam mosque. Housed within the same complex is the Iron Pillar that has stood the test of time without any visible evidence of rusting. It is said that if you can encircle the pillar with your hands while standing with your back to it, your wish will be granted!

Humayun’s tomb, another UNESCO World Heritage site, houses the tomb of Humayun commissioned by his first wife and chief consort, Empress Bega Begum. The site was chosen due to its proximity to the Nizamuddin Dargah, the mausoleum of the celebrated Sufi saint of Delhi, Nizamuddin Auliya, who was revered by the rulers of Delhi.  Besides the mortal remains of Humayun and Empress Bega Begum, the tomb complex also contains the last remains of several later Mughals.
