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.

This was an incredible day! As a woman traveling alone, I was a little concerned, but my driver Prem and guide Seema could not have been more professional and welcoming. Prem was early for our scheduled pickup at 2:30 am!, and was super friendly, sharing tons of facts as we drove. Seema was incredibly knowledgeable about the sites we saw. She was also very patient as I took dozens of photographs. Thanks to both Seema and Prem for a wonderful day and fantastic memories, and thanks to Nikita Holidays for accomodating my req! The only thing to be aware of is that the tour included two visits to artisans who had showrooms full

We were travelling from the United States and this trip was a one day sightseeing outing that we had in mind. This was the first visit to the Taj Mahal for our company President and therefore it had to be special. I have been to the Taj Mahal twice before so this was going to be exciting. Nikita Holidays fulfilled what was committed to on our itinerary. Our driver Ravi was a safe driver given that we were on the Yamuna expressway. Our tour guide Avnish were very professional and was thorough in terms of his knowledge of the history of the Taj Mahal and some of the trivia that he shared with us were amazing too. You absolutely have to see the Taj at Sunrise and we were The breakfast arrangement was very good and the best part was that since we did the tour early in the morning, it did not get very hot

We really enjoyed this tour. Our driver Prem and tour guide Rocky were fantastic. The car ride was very comfortable and the breakfast included was great. We saw the Taj for sunrise and then went to Agra fort which was also beautiful. Would definitely recommend this tour!

This itinerary is ideal. I had a full day in Delhi, went to bed at a reasonable hour, and met my driver at 2:30 a.m. Sleeping in the car on the way, so I arrived refreshed and ready to go! Greatly enjoyed Agra and returned early enough to continue my Delhi adventurers. Additionally, seeing the Taj Mahal at sunrise is an unparalleled, wonderous aesthetic, photographic experience.

The driver Perm and guide, Avneesh, were highly professional. It was a true pleasure, privilege to have them as my driver and guide.
