5 / 5 total 2 reviews
Duration: 12 hours
Overview

Discover the glory of the Mughal Empire of India on this private day tour of Agra.

Visit the Taj Mahal, the most famous building in India and one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

On this tour, you will witness the ancient architecture that is significant to India’s history including the Tomb of Itmad-ud-Daulah (Also called Baby Taj), Mehtab Bagh, and Agra Fort, a 16th-century Mughal monument.

After being picked up from your hotel in Agra you will be taken to the Taj Mahal; built in the 17th century by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as a memorial for his beloved wife Mumtaz.

Following your Taj Mahal tour you will travel to Agra Fort. Agra Fort was constructed by King Akbar between 1565 and 1573 and is situated on the west bank of the Yamuna River, about 2km upstream from the Taj Mahal.

Akbar built the Fort with sandstone, and his grandson Shah Jahan the builder of the Taj Mahal, constructed palaces of white marble within the fort itself.

Enjoy a lunch break at an air-conditioned multi-national cuisine restaurant (not included in price).

After lunch you will continue to the Itmad-ud-Daula Tomb, a Mughal mausoleum. Itimad-ud-Daula was the title given to Mirza Ghiyath Beg, father of Nur Jahan. He held the post of Lord of Treasure of the Empire and later rose to the dignity of Wazir under Jahangir. Nur Jahan completed the construction of the building of the Tomb of her father in 1628 AD, nearly 7 years after his death.

After Itmad-ud-Daula, you will visit Mehtab Bagh to watch the spectacular sunset over the Taj Mahal.
