Tour description

This all day private tour including vehicle, driver and guide offers you a chance to escape the tourist trail a little and to experience the diversity of Indian culture by visiting both the birthplace and childhood home of Lord Krishna, one of India's most revered deities.

Your guide and driver will meet you at your hotel or residence in Delhi at 6am and accompany you throughout the day. Traveling by air-conditioned private car to Vrindavan, you will firstly stop at a small village off of the highway where you can enjoy breakfast and a chai while mingling with the locals and your guide. Once in Vrindavan, you will proceed directly to visit some of the famous temples associated with Lord Krishna as well as an orientation walk of this fascinating historical city. Before continuing on to Mathura you will stop for a home-cooked lunch at one of the members of your local operator's very own home. In the afternoon you will get to explore Mathura, birthplace of Krishna. You will visit more key places of worship dedicated to key events in his fabled life and then enjoy a short boat ride between some of Mathura's famous ghats, ending with a poignant and ceremonial aarti ceremony in blessing to Yamuna River. Finally, you will return to Delhi by car, arriving back at your hotel or residence by 9:30pm.
