7.5 days in India

Jump to last reply

We (me and 17-yr old son) have a very brief 7.5 days in India in March 2017. Our first (and likely only) trip to India. The international flights are booked. I am in the process of booking hotels and domestic flights, and having a hard time deciding between the following three options for itinerary which include nuances with respect Agra. Please advise. Thank you. All three options start in Jaipur.

OPTION 1 (go through Agra for the day) (get the experience of a night train)
Jaipur (2 days) car 5-hr drive to
Agra (0.5 day) night train to
Varanasi (2.5 days) nonstop flight to
Delhi (2.5 days)

OPTION 2 (skip Agra) (seems easiest)
Jaipur (2 days) short 1-stop flight to
Varanasi (3 days) nonstop flight to
Delhi (2.5 days)

OPTION 3 (day trip to Agra from Delhi)
Jaipur (2 days) short 1-stop flight to
Varanasi (2 days) nonstop flight to
Delhi (3.5 days)

For Option 3, one day in Delhi we could early driver or 6 am train to Agra and return Delhi that afternoon. Would get to see Taj Mahal and Agra Fort but without the Option 2 drive Jaipur to Agra and night train Agra to Varanasi.
