  • What You Can Expect

    Get picked up from either the airport or your Delhi hotel at 2:30am in order to reach the Taj Mahal at dawn. Travel in a private vehicle to Agra, around a 3-hour drive away via the Yamuna Express Highway. 

    On arrival in Agra, meet your local tour guide and begin a sunrise tour of the world-famous Taj Mahal, built by a great emperor in memory of his beloved wife. (Please note: the Taj Mahal is closed every Friday.)

    After your tour, enjoy an included buffet breakfast in a 4/5 star hotel before moving on to yet another UNESCO World Heritage Site, Agra Fort. Built by Emperor Akbar in 1565 CE, this large fort is made of red sandstone, and its elegant buildings reflect the synthesis of Hindu and Central Asian architectural styles. Its maze of courtyards, mosques, and private chambers echo the story of the Mughal Empire. 

    Next, enjoy some shopping in Agra, which is known for its unique handicrafts made of marble with soft-stone inlay work. The city’s other major handicraft products besides inlay work are leather, brass, carpets, jewelry, and embroidery work.

    At around 1pm, enjoy a lunch break at one of the best local restaurants in the city (at your own expense).

    After a memorable day, you will be driven back to Delhi, arriving by 5pm, where you will be dropped off at your hotel or the airport.

    Cancellation Policy

    Package is cancellable prior to three days from the commencement of the service.

Our trip from Delhi to the Taj Mahal was amazing. We were picked up from our hotel right on time at 2:30 am to make the 3 hour drive to Agra. The drive was comfortable and our driver, Boby was great. We felt completely safe. Once in Agra, we met up with our tour guide, Rajesh. He was great and gave us a great tour of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. He even took some great pictures of us. The sunrise tour is highly recommended. There was no fog and a super clear day. We just so happened to be in Agra on Holi. Rajesh took us to his family home to celebrate Holi. We had a blast and his family was very nice and hospitable. They had snacks and drinks for us and we felt like part of the family. This tour was the highlight of our trip! Thanks Boby and Rajesh for a memorable day and one we will remember for a lifetime!

We had an amazing experience during this tour, even though we had to wake up 2 am. The driver was very talented and got us to Agra real quick. The car was convenient with plenty of water for free! Taj Mahal was beautiful in the morning, no clouds, no fog, just brightness.

Rajesh our guide was excellent, took some nice pictures of us, even more than desired. The whole trip was worth the money and can only recommend to everybody

We were picked up at around 230am from our hostel in Delhi. The driver was nice and courteous. We arrived in Agra at around 630, then to the Taj Mahal by 7. The tour guide was informative and explained the history and construction for us while allowing us some time to explore on our own. Breakfast was good. The visits to the craftsmen were enlightening. After those stops, we went to the Agra Fort where the guide took us through in around 90 minutes our request we had dinner reservations in Delhi. We were back in Delhi by 530pm.

I've seen many things as a traveler and have been disappointed by many sites. For example, the first time seeing the Statue of Liberty--I was so disappointed by her small size! But the Taj Mahal--let me tell you this--it's another story entirely. The first glimpse of her was absolutely breath taking. It is a very long day but completely worth it. We loved seeing all the monkeys playing around on the path to the Taj Mahal.

On the way there, we stopped at a small restaurant for breakfast, which was a lot of fun.

Our driver, Sanjay, is in location ahead of time. We arrived at the location on time to get in front of the line. Our guide, Rajesh, is knowledgeable but not overbearing - he makes sure he imparts his knowledge about Taj Mahal and Agra Fort but allows us to wander around and discover things ourselves. We personally met the owner of La Vacanza Travel's local tour partner and had tea in a claycup before we say goodbye.

Early morning tour is highly recommended as the early morning colors make the view more majestic.
