India's famous Golden Triangle tourist circuit is quite spread out, with 200-250 kilometers (125-155 miles) between each destination -- Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. This means that the most convenient way of seeing it is to hire a car and driver, or take a guided tour. If you're interested in taking a tour, Viator (in conjunction with Tripadvisor) and G Adventures both offer a range of popular Golden Triangle tours that are easy to book online. G Adventures is renowned for its quality small group tours that have an average of 10-12 people but also offers "independent" private trips with personal local guides. The Viator tours listed here are private tours that can be customized for any group size. Some include other destinations in addition to the Golden Triangle as well.
