India’s Golden Triangle includes the three most visited cities in the country’s northwest corner: Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. This area has been dubbed “golden” because of the vast wealth of cul- tural and historic treasures to be found in these three cities. From the majestic Taj Mahal in Agra to the fascinating abandoned city of Fatehpur Sikri, this golden land beckons with the mystery and complex cultural drama of India. Jaipur looks like an old Raj film and offers the best gems.
Delhi at the beginning and end of our journey makes it easy to add other cities to your trip. Our suggestion is the Southern India Post-trip, an adventure to the tropics and mysterious wonders of India’s exotic south. We know some women prefer to fly with other travelers; therefore ask about the group flight we recommend from JFK. Ask about a hotel at JFK so you have company with others flying to India. Flight schedules for 2022 are not yet available.

Once the nerve-center of a vast colonial empire, Lisbon is the second oldest capital in the European Union. Its Western location attracted Arab, Afro and Mediterranean influences. Portugal’s largest city, Lisbon, is unusual with steep hills, a majestic estuary, and ancient cobble stoned streets. Many buildings are decorated with Moorish style tiles. After the fall of the Roman Empire ,Germanic tribes ruled, then Arabs, Berbers and North African Jews arrived, much later came Spanish Hapsburgs. Lisbon is lively this time of year; with festivities this December week leading up to Christmas. We handpicked special restaurants and experiences for this trip.
