Itinerary
Days

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 2 km 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). Your Next excursion in the city includes free time to shop for souvenirs (own expense). Agra is well known for its intricate handicrafts and embroidery work. After Lunch you will continue to the Itmad-ud-Daulah Tomb, a Mughal mausoleum. Itimad-ud-Daulah 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. After sunset drive back to your Agra hotel.

I am so happy to have taken this tour. Friends came to India last year and attempted to visit the sites on their own. It turned out to be a logistical nightmare. We were picked up on time and our guide was really well informed. No queues, and an air-conditioned car made for a very pleasurable experience. Recommended.

This was an absolutely amazing one day tour from Delhi. Our guide was friendly and well educated about the local history. Being a private tour made it more enjoyable as our itinerary was flexible and we could make impromptu stops. It was a real pleasure getting to see the Taj Mahal and Agra without the stress that comes when you go in large groups. I will highly recommend your services to all of my friends.

It was a very informative and comfortable tour to The Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and The Baby Taj. Was very well planned by the local tour guide and we were always in time but never in a hurry. Our guide was very experienced and told many new things about all the monuments, history of the city etc. We were always given extra time for clicking pics and enjoying our time at the monuments. Lunch was in a good restaurant and we enjoyed it. Overall a great activity, recommend!

This was a great tour as I was traveling alone and it was made personable as I had my own experienced guide. It also made a change being able to get lots of photographs with me in them. Thank you for making my trip to Agra so memorable and seeing the sunset is a must if you take this tour.

I have always wanted to visit the Taj Mahal and I give our guide 10 out of 10 for making our experience so wonderful. Nothing was a bother and we made many random stops along the way. We also visited a wonderful restaurant for lunch and visited local expert craftsmen to buy some mementos to take home. Thank you for everything – we will never forget this day.
