Thinking of taking a trip to India with the kids? I bet you’re also asking yourself “Am I crazy?”

Yes, you are. Crazy for adventure, that is!

Regardless of where you go, India will blow you away. The food, the locals, the architecture, the animals in the middle of the road… It’s a huge shock to the system (in the best way) and a valuable learning experience for travellers at any age. 

Most first time visitors India tackle the Golden Triangle. The cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur form a three-point round trip (hence the name). Because of the distance between cities, most itineraries will suggest taking at least seven days to complete the triangle. But it’ll be a jam-packed seven days. These are the must-sees for your first trip to India.

Hit the ground running in Delhi

Delhi is an enormous city with winding laneways and traffic like you wouldn’t believe. Avoid some of the congestion and heat by heading out right after breakfast (most locals enjoy a sleep start).
