Delhi - Agra - Jaipur in 4 days

We have only 4 -5 days to visit Delhi-Agra-Jaipur in December. Here is our plan after reading and re-reading the forum:

Dec 8 - Arrive and stay 2 nights in Delhi

Day 3 – Take a train to Agra. Hire a car from Agra station, visit the Taj Mahal then drive/train to Jaipur

Day 4 - Jaipur sightseeing. Then fly to Varanasi.

Days 5 – 6 stay in Varanasi then fly to Kathmandu

Instead of taking the train to Jaipur, should we hire a car? If so, would anyone have recommendations? Once we are in Jaipur, then I think we can just keep working with the same tour and visit Jaipur that way. What would be the cost for hiring a car with driver from Agra to Jaipur and then touring Jaipur the next day?

Thank you.

Your ity. Is doable. In December 3rd and 4th week weather here can be foggy. If you are travelling during that time then I would suggest to hire a car for Delhi > Agra> Jaipur > Delhi tour.

You can also plan to drive to Agra after your tour in Delhi on day 2 and spending night in Agra.

In Dec visibility gets low .........not sure about how train and flight would go.The best is to hire a car/driver for Golden Triangle trip.If plan to drive from Delhi to Agra take a newly build Express way.

Thanks, Deepak and Rashid, for the suggestions. We'll be traveling on the second week of Dec, so hopefully it's not too foggy. Is there a tripadvisor link for me to see a list of tour guides?

I'd like to take the train from Delhi to Agra because I've read that it takes 4 hrs by car but then if the train is not moving, maybe it's best to travel by car. So would it cost more to have one car/tour guide for the whole Delhi - Agra - Jaipur trip, or should we take taxi to each town and then work with the local tour? It seems to be less hassle to work with one agency.

Hiring car from one agency make u tension free.they can provide you guide in each city as well.

Or you can have escorted private tour. It take three hour only from delhi to agra now.

Better to go with one car and driver and can arrange guides in each city as they are expert of their city.

Search in the box above for guides services...type the city too.

Since train might be delayed during that time, it would be better to plan your trip with a rented car for Delhi-Agra-Jaipur, it's more comfortable and you will not have to bother for arranging vehicle in each city.

Local guides can be arranged in city-wise, it's recommended to hire guides who are approved by government.

The flight connection from Jaipur>>Varanasi>>Kathmandu seems complicated as you must be already aware that they don't fly directly for these sectors & most of them has long hrs layover. I think you should add a day or 2 more for India if possible in-order to travel with comfort/without rush, it also depends what time your International/Domestic plane gets into Delhi on Dec 8. Suggested Itinerary:-

Delhi>>Jaipur>>Agra by car & driver, then o/n train from Agra>>Varanasi

Air India is the only Airline (AI-251) fly directly from Varanasi to Kathmandu but operates 3 days in a week I guess. Check If your date of travel matches. Click below mentioned link for flight info:-

Hope above info will help!!

Dear Olive Brown,

Hiring a car for the full trip will give you flexibility and convonience. It will be cheaper to hire a car for full tour including site seeing in each city and to hire local guides in each city. There are recommendations on Agra forum for guides who can provide you the service. You can use the search box above.
