  • 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.

Thank you to Prem and Seema for a memorable visit to Agra. The journey begin with Prem waited for me way before 2.30am for a 3hours journey to Agra. The car was comfortable and he Prem was very dedicated to drive at the speed limit of 80km/hr. We reached Agra by 6am slightly more than 3 hours due to heavy traffic in Delhi even at 2.30am!! After short break at the hotel in Agra I met my tour guide Ms Seema. Seema is very knowledgeable and patience. To my surprise she has a master degree holder in History. We started at Taj Mahal by 6.30am. It was a heavy Saturday morning with people from all over the world. After 30mins quing up we managed to enter and enjoy the beautiful garden outside the Taj Mahal before entering it. It was a very memorable experience since I never thought that I would able to come here and see the with my naked eyes. After Taj we went for a quick breakfast at the first hotel when we dropped by (it's all covered in the package) and then we went to the Agra Fort whereby Seema once again did a very good job explaining all the history behind. After a short souvenirs shopping we went back to Delhi and safely arrived after 4 hours.

My husband and I are first timers in India, so arriving into Delhi was definitely quite overwhelming. Well, thank goodness for Nikita Holidays and their amazing working staff for making us feel comfortable, super happy and excited in India... especially, for giving us the chance to check off the Taj Mahal from our bucket list in the best way imaginable.

From the minute I booked the excursion online on La Vacanza Travel.com, I received a prompt whatsapp message from the company confirming our reservation and contact information. Days leading to our excursion, including the night before, Nikita Holidays provided me with the final confirmation information that included the driver's name, vehicle number, time, etc. I thought it was very well organized and great!

The day of the trip was pure perfection and everything we could ever hope for. Vishan was our driver and he was the best!!! He arrived right on time, 2:30am on the dot, to our hotel with a very comfy van to transport us to Agra. He was very professional and kind. So much so, that after this day, we can call him a friend AND requested his amazing service for a day tour of Delhi the following day. On the way to Agra, he told us about India, his family, the culture and stopped for some delicious Masala Chai tea. It was a great ride to Agra!

Once we arrived to Agra, we met our guide Rajesh... who was just as incredible as well!! He was also a great professional, very knowledgeable of Agra and the Taj Mahal. He told us everything we wanted to know of the monuments and it's magical stories. He gave us the the best tour we could have ever hoped for. He knew the best time for the most incredible sunrise views of the Taj Mahal. It was worth the long and super early start. It was an absolute beauty! Rajesh made sure to give us the best tour ever with his professionalism and superb kindness. Rajesh, Oscar and I thank you for a great tour my friend!!

After the tour of the Taj Mahal, we had a lovely breakfast at a nice hotel nearby and then headed to see how tapestry, jewelry, marble, rugs are made in Agra. Both Rajesh and Vishan were always on point and ready to assist us with any questions or concerns. Even when I started to feell ill at a point within the excursion, they were attentive and helped us go at our pace. I couldn't walk the Agra Fort feeling this way so they were kind to drive us around it for pictures and tell us more history behind the monument. I promise you, they are a dynamic duo and the best in the business to go visit Agra!

Finally, on the way back Vishan was amazing as always, as we stopped for lunch and continue our drive back to Delhi. He has many incredible stories to share, and will make the ride as comfortable and entertaining as possible. The best part is that we get to work with this company and his exclusive service again tomorrow as we tour New and Old Delhi.

I highly recommend this company and their services. Request for Vishan and Rajesh!! They are the best and I guarantee will make you feel right at home with them in India!!

Waking at 2:30am for pickup - not normal. But, if you want the best view of the Taj Mahal, smallest crowds and cool of the morning, this is it. Fantastic tour. Local Agra guide, Rocky, did a great job getting me in early and was very knowledgeable. Tour of Agra Fort affords great view back to Taj!
