Need your kind help in:

- How many days to spend in Delhi and how many days shall we keep to spend in Kerala?

- How can we go from Delhi to Agra for Taj Mahal? and what else can we visit while at Agra?

- If we are staying at Delhi, is there other 1 day trips we can do other than Agra?

- We are planning to book internal flight to go to Kerala, how can we reach Munnar from Kochi airport? best place to stay? what is the minimum number of days needed at Munnar?

- After Munnar we want to stay the rest at Kochi till we leave, any recommendations for good place to stay? activities to do or places to visit?

You will be hold 2,3 nights in delhi around Connaught palace, if you are 3 then hire a reliable car with driver for the day tour of Tajmahal via Yamuna express way, it's take 7-8 hrs driving with Taj visit fm center. If you want use train as well for both sides. But it's get more expensive and hassles to reach station and tour of the following monuments. I think do 5nights golden triangle series and then fly from jaipur to kerala. 7days is good enough for this part.

Thanks

Hi,

Since you are looking for a place with excess to transportation and good places nearby for dining, in that case you should look for either Cannought Place, or Karol Bagh area. A maximum of 2-3 days are more than enough to spend in Delhi.

When going from Delhi to Agra, you can either use a pre-booked cab, or take Shatabdi Train to Agra (if you want to experience Indian Trains). While at Agra, you can visit Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Mehtab Bagh, and if time permits then Fatehpur Sikri.

And regarding your question about Kerala, you should post it in Kerala Forum. The experts and Travel Agents in Kerala would best answer your Kerala question.

Thanks a lot for your reply!

For Thekkady & Alleppey could it be on 1 day trip basis each while staying in Kochi?

i.e. 1 day Kochi to Thekkady and return to stay in Kochi then another day for Alleppey

Hi N.F,

Welcome again on the forum and approx cost would be INR 8500 to INR 9000/- for Ac sedan car for the following services.

An open recommendation is against the trip advisor guidelines so we can pick any operator from the listed agent.

Regards,

Jitender

For two days you can get a car ranging Rs 7500/- to 9000/- It will depend on type of car and time of service.

As suggested open recommendations are against guidelines.

Drop a message/email to participating members/tour agents and ask for services and details. Compare and then finalize.

Regards
