DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Mumbai

Arrive in vibrant Mumbai, home of India’s exciting film and arts culture, and check into your luxury suite at the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower. You may rub shoulders with royalty and celebrities here, who are frequent guests of the palatial hotel. Settle in, adjust to your new surroundings, have a delicious dinner, and rest for your next few busy days.

DAY 2: Mumbai

Spend some time exploring Mumbai today. Begin with the Prince of Wales Museum, the city’s main museum, housing 50,000 exhibits of ancient Indian history. Next, head to a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Victoria Station, and the upmarket area of Malabar Hill.

DAY 3: Mumbai

Today, you’ll take in some of Mumbai’s more modern arts, starting with the elegant National Gallery of Modern Art, and followed by a visit to the ever-flamboyant Indian take on Hollywood, Bollywood. Bollywood is the largest film producer in India, and indeed among the world’s largest as well.

DAY 4: Aurangabad

Leave Mumbai today, embarking on a 6-hour drive to Aurangabad, a tourist hub filled with historical charm and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Visit one such site today, the Ellora Caves, which are known for representing the epitome of Indian rock-cut architecture.

DAY 5: Hampi

Head to Hampi today, home to the ruins of the ancient Vijayanagara Empire, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’ll fly to Hubli Airport and then drive three hours to Hampi. Check into your room at one of our two recommended luxury hotels, Hampi Boulders or The Hyatt Place. Once settled in, take in the exotic smells and sights of Paan Supaari Street, dedicated to the Indian traditional snack of betel leaf filled with a mixture of chopped or coarsely ground areca nuts and spices. Finish off with a visit to Matanga Hill, famous for its stunning views.

DAY 6: Hampi

Take a peek into India’s past today with a tour of Hampi’s temples, many of which are decorated in fascinating ancient motifs and elaborate frescoes. Finally, if you happen to be visiting in November, take part in the Utsav Festival, Hampi’s largest festival, featuring music, dance and puppet performances, as well as fireworks and more.

DAY 7: Bangalore

Take off for Bangalore today, well-known as the country’s information technology capital, and India’s third-largest city. Transfer to your suite at the Taj West End, which holds the title of the city’s first hotel, and become acquainted with your new surroundings.

DAY 8: Bangalore

Explore Bangalore today, on a tour that takes you to Lal Bagh, a botanical garden with India's largest collection of tropical plants; Dodda Basavana Gudi, also known as the Bull Temple, representing a sacred Hindu demi-god, and Bangalore Palace. Spend the rest of your day relaxing in the palatial surroundings of your hotel, or exploring the city as you like. 

DAY 9: Hyderabad

Today you’re off to Hyderabad, where you’ll check in to your historic suite at the Taj Faluknama Palace. Get acquainted with the city by paying a visit to two of the city’s most important sites: the ruins of the capital of ancient Kingdom of Golkonda and one of the city’s oldest mosques, Mecca Masjid.

DAY 10: Hyderabad

After a leisurely breakfast this morning, take a stroll through Hyderabad’s historic Public Gardens, located in the heart of the city. These gardens are home to not only the State Legislature, but also an open-air theater. Wind up your time in Hyderabad with a tour of its Old City, before turning in for the night at your palatial hotel.

DAY 11: Departure

On your final day of your Central India itinerary, fly to Mumbai and check-in for your flight to your next destination.
