Overview


Lucknow Tour Package

Resting on the bank of River Gomti, Lucknow is one Indian city which continues to endorse its cultural legacy while receiving rapid urban facelift in the parallel.

Lucknow tour package is one good opportunity to witness the golden era which stands unshakeably on the pillars erected by distinct cultures and captivating traditions. The politeness with which the locals greet their guests carries that extra sweetness and you feel honoured. As you embark on the city sightseeing tour, some colossal structures exemplifying the patronage of the Nawabs come into sight and you feel overwhelmed.

From Nawabs, the focus shifts to kebabs and your taste buds suddenly turn demanding.

No wonder the delectable kebabs are followed by the never-ending feasts of Awadhi cuisines, as well as the mouth-watering Makhan Malai, Kulfi, Tokri Chaat and what not.

You are not finished yet and something truly fascinating captures your attention. Must be a striking piece of embroidery work like chikankari, zari or zardori! All of a sudden, you recall ‘Smile, You are in Lucknow’ you read on a board somewhere in the city and you conclude how true it is.

This Lucknow City tour package helps you take this smile and many fine memories back home.

Itinerary Details

Day by Day itineraryDay 1: Arrival at Lucknow – Sightseeing Tour Begins

On the first day of Lucknow tour package, we expect you to reach Lucknow as per the schedule.

Our representative escorts you from the airport or the railway station to the booked hotel. Take some time to relax before we begin the city tour.

The first destination of the day would be Bara Imambara (open from 06:00 a.m. to 05:00 p.m.; closed every Monday; entry fee INR 50/500 for Indians/foreigners; INR 10/25 for camera/digital camera). A rice husk-made roof which surprisingly survives without any pillar support, the world’s largest arched hall, a royal step-well, numerous secret tunnels and an accidentally created bhul-bhulaiya (labyrinth) are only among the few astonishing features of the structure. Built by Nawab Asaf-ud-Daula, the structure also accommodates Nawab’s tomb.

Move on to visit Chota Imambara and discover the breathtaking Rumi Darwaza, a 60 ft. High massive gateway which often serves as Lucknow’s iconic symbol. Chota Imambara (open from 06:00 a.m. to 05:00 p.m.; entry fee included in the combined ticket of Bara Imambara). It was built by Nawab Muhammad Ali Shah and serves as his mausoleum. The imposing architecture of the structure overpowers every other historical structure in the city and why not. The distinguished Islamic calligraphy, intricate baroque carvings and the Persian-style Char-Bagh layout make it a treat to watch. The interiors are equally breathtaking with exquisite Belgian chandeliers, lamp-stands and artefacts. Two replicas of Taj Mahal add to the place’s dominance.

Conclude the first day of Lucknow City tour package and return to the hotel for night stay.

Day 2: Lucknow Sightseeing Continues

Start another day of Lucknow tour package as we take you to Dilkusha Kothi and Garden (open 08:00 a.m.-06:00 p.m.; entry fee INR 5/100 for Indian/foreign tourists). Built by the British as a hunting lodge and summer resort, the palace received heavy damage due to shelling during the first attempt of India’s Independence in 1857. A superlative structure once, the palace remains in the state of ruins, though it retains the old world charm. The lush green gardens surrounding the kothi palace are worth spending some great moments at.

Later, pay visit to Shah Najaf Imambara (open from 06:00 a.m. to 05:00 p.m.; entry is free), which was built by Nawab Ghazi-ud-Din Haider and houses his tomb. It is believed to be the replica of the Tomb of Hazrat Ali in Iraq and has a distinctive dome design. The tombs in silver and gold and the charming garden surrounding the structure are the highlights of this place.

The next place to visit would be Ramakrishna Math(open from 08:30 a.m.-12 noon and 04:00 p.m.-08:00 p.m.), the white marble temple which is a breathtaking mix of Mughal, Rajput, Bengali and many South Indian architectural styles. The place boasts of cleanliness, extreme divinity and peacefulness that send the visitors to the state of trance. There are idols of Sree Ramakrishna, Mata Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda.

From there, visit Moti Mahal (open from 12 noon-11:00 p.m. Monday-Friday and 05:30 p.m.-11:00 p.m. Saturday; entry for free), or Pearl Palace, another wonderful monument on the banks of Gomti. It is believed that the palace’s dome was polished using pearl powder and its glow would be visible from a long distance. Nawab Saadat Ali Khan got this marvellous palace built for recreational and bird watching purposes. There are gardens, lawns, rose beds and fountains all around the palace. Two adjacent structures, called Shahi Manzil and Mubarak Manzil were built by the succeeding Nawab.

Continue the Lucknow City tour package and visit La Martiniere College (open till evening; no entry fee). Take a break from the Mughal and Nawabi heritage and admire the equally majestic European Architecture of this mind-blowing structure. Constructed in 1845, it is among the many schools built to commemorate the French Major General Claude Martin and is one of the best campuses in India. Constantia is the key building of the campus and is especially notable when lit up at night.

Next, visit Chattar Manzil(open 08:00 a.m.-06:00 p.m.; closed on Sunday; no entry fee), or Umbrella Palace, named so because of its umbrella-like domes. The construction of the palace was started by Nawab Ghazi-ud-Din Haider and completed by Nawab Nasir-us-Din Haider. A stupendous structure flaunting Indo-European architecture, it is particularly known for underground rooms and secret tunnels to River Gomti.

After a wonderful day of sightseeing, you are free in the evening to visit the local markets. You may visit the Old Chowk Market or Aminabad Market to buy enchanting hand-embroidered stuff and fashion jewellery at very low prices. Ivory items and leather items are among other things to buy here. Janpath is another place to look for a variety of local ittars (perfumes). Please note that many of these market areas remain closed on every Thursday.

Don’t miss the scrumptious Awadhi platters when in Lucknow. Boti Kebabs, Galawati kebabs and Tundey kebabs top the list. Mutton biryani and handi chicken are among other popular preparations. Nihari Kulche, Aaloo Tikki, Khasta Aaloo and dahi batashe are apt for the vegetarians. Refreshing thandai and lassi are extremely flavoursome drinks. Don’t miss the delicious kulfi, makhan malai and other varieties of sweets. Return to the hotel for overnight stay.

Day 3: Departure

Have breakfast and pack your bags. Our tour representative would help you transfer to the bus stand, railway station or airport from where you can commence your further journey. Lucknow tour package ends here.

  I planned a South India tour from Chennai to Kochi. I asked from many different travel companies but I got the best and cheapest offer by 'Way to India'. That was two weeks travel plan. We visited so many wonderful places and we got enough time for some individual program too. In the first week we visited the historical places like temples, museums and some beaches. In the second week we visited amazing natural attraction. All happened at exactly fixed itinerary. We traveled with a comfortable panoramic mini bus and the bus driver (Mr. Ram) was very kind and talented who could manage a good restaurant for dinner and lunch every day. The recommended hotels were correct and better than the chosen category. The connecting with 'Way to India' was a great experience for us and Mr Mohit was very pleasant and flexible for our request. All in all believe that this was the best choice for traveling. I'm sure we'll go back in India again because we found many kind friends at there and we would like to organize travel again by 'way to India'. thanks for all you have done for us thank you so much

  It took a year of planning to suit a budget and unique needs for 10 people. Patience and support for that one year and throughout the travel experience was excellent leaving no area wanting.

Thanks Mohit and team!

  I am so delighted and grateful that I found Way to India. I was nervous about doing a trip by myself, as a young woman, in the Himalayas and it was important for me to find a trusted company to arrange my trip. I searched long and hard but once I spoke with Mohit at Way to India, I knew I found the perfect company. Every question I had or issue I needed help with was handled immediately, proficiently, with excellent service that really went above and beyond. All of the people connected with the company that I met or spoke with are extremely helpful, friendly and an absolute pleasure to deal with. The itinerary created was just perfectly tailored for what I wanted and was done with a lot of thought and care. They stayed connected with me through the entire trip to make sure everything was going well. Really, I did not have to worry or think about anything. I will use them every time I come back to India! I highly recommend to all my friends and family and to anyone who wants a memorable visit to India.   Aditi Banerjee

  Thanks to Waytoindia for 10 day in Rajasthan- Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Udaipur, Mount Abu and Ahmedabad. Everything from pickup from Jaipur airport to drop at Ahmedabad airport was very smooth. The hotels booked in Jaipur and Udaipur were amazing. In Jaisalmer the camel ride and Jeep safari though a bit expensive was a good experience. The car and the driver for the entire 10 days was very good. Thanks to the driver Mahesh, who drove the 2 ladies for the entire 10 days safely and dropped us in time for the return flight to Bangalore.

Overall it was a memorable trip customized by Way2india for us. Thanks to Ankit.

    Travel Tips For Lucknow Tour Package


    Travel Tips:

    How to Reach:

    • By Air: Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport has direct flight connectivity with the Indian cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bhopal, Jaipur, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai, and Kolkata. Flights are also available from the international locations like Muscat, Singapore, and Dubai.
    • By Rail: Lucknow Railway Station and Lucknow Junction boast of excellent rail connectivity with all major cities across India, including Jammu, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, New Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata, Mumbai, Indore and more.
    • By Road: National Highways 24, 27 and 30 connect the city with cities and regions in all directions of India. As a result, Lucknow is conveniently accessible in state transport buses and by private vehicles as well.

    Local Transport: Lucknow Metro has recently become operational in some parts of the city and would soon expand its reach. City buses are the cheap modes, while taxis, tempos, and autos can be hired from and to any part of the city. Cycle-rickshaws are ideal for visiting the congested areas.

    Weather: Summers from April to June is hot and dry and make sightseeing extremely difficult. Heavy rainfall and unbearable humidity are experienced during the monsoon months from July-September. Winters bring in pleasant weather, especially from October-November and February-March. December-January can be extremely foggy.

    Best Time: The best time to choose Lucknow tour package is from October-March when the weather is ideal for day-time sightseeing.

    Popular Festivals: Lucknow Mahotsav (November-December) showcases the best of Lucknow and Uttar Pradesh culture through music, dance, food, poetry, and crafts. Vrindavan Sharadotsav (October) and Lucknow Literature Festival (November) are other similar events. Holi, the festival of colors, in March and Diwali, the festival of lights, in October are celebrated with great zeal.

    Useful Tips:

    • Avoid wearing revealing clothes, especially in the old city parts and at places of religious importance.
    • Pack moisturizers, sunscreens and light to heavy woolens if visiting in winters. For a summer trip, pack cotton clothes, sun protection, hats and caps and goggles.
    • Health facilities are good to excellent in the city. It is better to know about the popular hospitals and their locations in advance.
    • Avoid drinking water from taps and cut fruits from roadside vendors. For street food vendors, choose a vendor who maintains good hygiene standards.
    • Few stares and lewd remarks from young and middle-aged men are common in India and Lucknow is no exception. Being a state capital, Lucknow is safer than most of the other cities in Uttar Pradesh. Solo travelers, including women, and foreign travelers feel safe here. Still, avoid venturing into over-crowded or isolated areas alone.
    • Nightlife is almost non-existent. Also, it is difficult to find conveyance easily at late night.
