Home Icon 3 night Amritsar holiday extension from only £545pp

Located in the northern Indian state of Punjab, Amritsar was established in 1577 by the fourth Sikh guru, Ram Das. Home to the magnificent Golden Temple, Sikhism’s holiest shrine and a worthy rival to the Taj Mahal as India’s most spectacular monument, Amritsar offers a beautiful blend of culture, history and tradition.

This holiday extension is available to add to the end of our Golden Triangle & Ranthambore tour.

Amritsar, from only £545 per person

The fascinating city of Amritsar offers many highlights, including the Guard Retreat ceremony at the Wagah border and the spectacular Golden Temple. It is the perfect finale to your Golden Triangle & Ranthambore tour.

This itinerary follows on from Day 10 of our Golden Triangle & Ranthambore tour


  • Day 10 Amritsar, 2 nights
  • Day 11 Amritsar
  • Day 12 Delhi, Overnight
  • Day 13 Depart Delhi / Arrive UK

Day 10: Amritsar, 2 nights

We bid farewell to our fellow travelling companions who depart for their final night in Delhi. Those of us heading to Amritsar depart from Jaipur on a one-stop flight. Upon arrival, we transfer to our hotel, the impressive Radisson Blu Amritsar, which will be our home for the next two nights.

Included meals: Breakfast and dinner


Day 11: Amritsar

After breakfast, we begin our sightseeing tour with a visit to the striking Golden Temple in Jallianwala Bagh. We continue to the Partition Museum, a world first ‘people’ museum that tells the stories of millions of people affected during the partition of 1947. The afternoon is reserved for a very special journey to Wagah border, to witness the inimitable Guard Retreat ceremony. This daily ‘beating retreat’ ceremony attracts crowds from both the sides of the India-Pakistan border, and is characterised by elaborate and rapid dance-like manoeuvres.

Later this evening we’ll see the breath-taking Golden Temple at night, when numerous lights illuminate its beauty, and witness the sacred and much revered Palki Sahib ceremony.

Included meals: Breakfast and dinner


Day 12: Delhi, Overnight

Enjoy the day in Amritsar at leisure, before transferring to the airport for our flight to Delhi. When arriving we will transfer to the Pride Plaza Hotel Aerocity for our final night in India.

Day 13: Depart Delhi / Arrive UK

This morning we say goodbye to the delights of India and transfer to Delhi Airport, boarding our Virgin Atlantic flight back to the UK. We land back in the UK later today.

Included meals: Breakfast and in-flight dinner and drinks
