Enjoy a same day Taj Mahal and Agra trip from Delhi in a private air-conditioned car with an experienced chauffeur and tour guide. Explore Agra's UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the famous Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Itmad-ud-tullah and Mehtab Bagh.
What to Expect
Your driver will pick you up in an air-conditioned car from your hotel in Delhi to begin your 4-hour drive to Agra. Start your sightseeing with a visit to the fascinating Taj Mahal, a symbol of love. The Taj Mahal is one of the New Seven Wonders of the world, and one of the three world heritage sites in Agra. Your guide in Agra will meet you at the Taj Mahal and will show you around the monument for an hour and a half. Take time to admire the majestic monument, known for being one of the most beautiful buildings in the world.
After the Taj Mahal you will visit Agra Fort, one of the finest Mughal forts in India. Agra Fort, built by Emperor Akar in 1565, is a massive red sandstone fort on the bank of Yamuna River. After Agra Fort you will visit Itmad-ud-Daulah, a tomb which has a special place in the chronicles of both history as well as architecture. Itmad-ud-Daulah is actually a mausoleum that overlooks the Yamuna river and is the tomb of Mir Ghiyas Beg, a minister in the court of Shah Jahan. Spend 30 minutes here and admire the very first tomb in India that was made entirely out of Marble. After Itmad-ud-daula you will visit Mehtab Bagh, which is a series of 11 parks on the Yamuna's east bank. These parks were built to protect the Taj Mahal from the erosive effects of the sand which blows across the river. Spend 25 minutes in these gardens and experience the best view of Taj Mahal.
After sightseeing, you will have some free time for shopping in Agra. Agra is a specialty destination for different handicraft products, leather products, petha (sweets), garments, marble goods and more. After your free time to go shopping, you will head back to Delhi where you will be dropped off back at your hotel.
