Golden Triangle tour package or a self-planned itinerary, which is better?

The Delhi-Agra-Jaipur circuit is probably the most popular of all the India tour packages available. And not without reason, you start off with a cultural trip down Delhi’s avenues, take in the beauty of the Taj and bask in the splendor of Jaipur. Not to mention the many amazing moments, sights & things to do in between. However, if you are thinking of touring the golden triangle, you have two options to make your plans come true. Either you handle the bookings & preparations yourself, or you book a tour package instead. While most travellers might choose self-planned trips over a package, we feel the latter is the better option and here’s why.

1. Finding cheap flight tickets is difficult.

Getting to Delhi from wherever you are will cost. Besides for the cost, you’ll have to compare numerous site & airlines before you find the right flight. Then there’s the booking process, web check-ins & more! However, with a Golden Triangle tour package, you won’t need to endure this tiresome process as flights usually come included.

2. Getting around.

Once you’ve gotten to Delhi, you’ll need to get to the hotel. From there you’ll need to cover many kilometers to Agra and then spend some more long hours on the road to Jaipur. Basically, it’s a logistics headache; one you do not have to put up with if you book a tour package. This is because most India tour packages come with internal transfers included. This ensures you do not have to endure haggling taxi drivers at Delhi airport after a tiring flight or meticulously arrange transfer or worse still, hire a self-drive to get around.

3. Hotels.

If you thought finding the right flights was difficult, wait till you try your hand at booking hotels for your trip. There are thousands of options to compare and choose from. You’ll have to figure which ones are closer to the places you want to visit, you’ll need to read reviews and go through photos of numerous hotels. With a Golden Triangle Tour package however, you won’t need to do a thing. This is because all tour packages come with accommodation included, the better packages will have levels of accommodation to choose from i.e. 3-star, 4-star & 5-star options. Based on your budget, you can make an appropriate selection.

4. Things to do & places to visit!

A holiday is incomplete without a well-planned itinerary. But creating an itinerary is easier said than done, especially if you’ve never been the places you plan to visit. But, with a tour package, the itinerary is set for you. Some of the better tour operators also allow you to change the itinerary for each day with some customizable packages.

So there you have it, we hope these points will help you choose between a self-planned trip & Golden triangle tour packages. For more information about tour packages, you can simply contact one of the many tour operators – they will be more than happy to help you. Good luck and travel safe.
