Golden Triangle

Can anyone suggest a good tour operator to help us (two couples) organize a very quick visit to the Golden Triangle? We arrive off a cruise in Bombay in early December and would like to spend a short while in India before we have to head back to the States. We're open to all suggestions. Thanks.

I may be missing something here, but the only ?Golden Triangle? I know is where the borders of Thailand, Lao and Burma meet.

In the guide books about India the Golden Triangle is referred to as Delhi to Agra to Jaipur and back to Delhi. This is the trip I am referring to. Any ideas?

Drop me a mail on [email protected] and I can suggest some as well. What kind of budget are u looking at? The Golden Trainagle is very much on the tourist circuit so is available in various budgets. If u are willing to splurge stay at the Oberoi hotels, Amar Vilas in Agra and raj Vilas in Jaipur. Check them out at
