Overview

Visit the world-famous Taj Mahal at sunrise on this full-day tour from New Delhi. Get picked up from the airport or your Delhi hotel and travel in a private vehicle to Agra. Dawn is a magical time to see the Taj Mahal, the UNESCO World Heritage Site built by a Mughal emperor in memory of his beloved wife. Afterwards, your guide will take you to the imposing red sandstone Agra Fort and to enjoy some shopping, before returning you to Delhi. Breakfast, transport, and entrance fees are included.

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 tour was the best, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and courteous, he did his best to get us ahead of the lines so we don't miss the sunrise at Taj. The driver even waited for us for 30 mins at the airport because our flight was delayed.

Even though the car showed up one hour late for the pickup, the driver made it to reach the Taj Mahal on time for the opening the long queue was skipped, due to guide sort of priority access. The guide Subhash explained me around and also left plenty of time to just take pics and enjoy the place. We then head off for breakfast to a nearby hotel and then off to the Agra Fort, which I strongly recommend to visit as very much more well preserved and rich, than the one in Old Delhi. Subhash was kind, friendly and available to answer all questions and explain more about history or specific topics. Taj Mahal alone definitely worth the trip, even if you only have half day time, it's an easy commute from Delhi.

Five Crazy Airline Girls in India for just three days
This quick trip was originally planned to just visit the Taj Mahal. However because we work for an airlines and fly standby we decided to add a day on to our two day quick trip. When we first started researching tours to the Taj Mahal we stumbled upon the Sunrise tour to the Tahj Mahal. We booked with La Vacanza Travel Tours that worked Nikita Holidays.
I was really impressed with the service of Nikita Holidays. Raj sent me a message via WhatsApp with our initial tour information and asked me if I need anything other assistances while in India. Having a WhatsApp point of contact throughout the trip was very helpful. After adding the extra day Raj was very accommodating and quickly confirmed the changes that I requested. Also Raj was really helpful with the many trip planning questions I had and even arranged for airport pick up.
We booked the 3 tours with Nikita.

Our Driver, Vishan was waiting for us out of the International Indra Gandhi AirportDelhi and had water and marigold leis for us when we got to his car. After a crazy ride Friday night traffic! to our hotel in downtown Delhi, Vishan said goodnight and advised us he would see us in the morning. In the morning he picked us up in his nice air-conditioned car and started out on our 4-hour drive to Jaipur. Vishan was an excellent driver and had a lot of fun and educational conversation the whole way there.
The next couple of days we received the same great service from all our drivers and guides as we did from Vishan. All of our guides spoke incredibly well and detailed all the sites we saw. They took photos for us and did an amazing job.
Of course, I must mention the Taj Mahal. Sure, you've seen a million photos of it, but viewing it for the first time as the sun rises will still take your breath away. It is truly better I believe in the morning than at any other time of the day, it was worth getting up early for. We skipped the crowds and barely had to wait for anything! We had a tour around Agra and were shown how marble inlay was done.
People in India are naturally friendly and welcoming. We just spent an incredible 3 days travelling around just a small part of India and saw loads of amazing things. India isnt the easiest place to travel and often a little extra comfort or assistance can go a long way to ensuring you have an enjoyable and memorable trip.
But for first time visitors, and those who have a limited time to spend in India and want some support and assistance with making sure they have the perfect trip, Nikita Holidays is ideal. The trip was enjoyable and was a good mix of activities. Overall, the service provided was excellent. They took extra care to coordinate with us at every step of the process. We will definitely choose Nikita Holidays for future visits to India.

We loved our trip to Agra! Rocky, our tour guide, was terrific! He was so knowledgeable about Agra and really allowed my mother and I to explore. We did have a very foggy start to our morning, however Rocky knew the best time to come to the Taj Mahal and we were able to see it no problem. We skipped the crowds and barely had to wait for anything! Our driver was also very safe and we enjoyed the car ride to and from Agra. Highly recommend!

We 3 girls originally booked the one day sunrise tour but switched to stay in Agra overnight and therefore leave Delhi later. The company was very accommodating and quickly made the switch. Our driver, Brijesh, was wonderful. He picked us up at the hotel right on time and drove us to Agra. He was a great, safe driver - car was clean and comfortable and he had snacks/juice/water/candy for our trip.

We arrived in Agra and Roki, our tour guide was at the hotel. We quickly checked in and went straight to the Taj Mahal. Roki was also wonderful. He knows everyone there which was very helpful. The lines were extremely long and we didnt wait in any of them. He was also great at finding places for pictures and making sure no one got in any of them. After a couple hours there, we went to the Agra Fort and then some shops in town before bringing us back to our hotel. Roki was very kind, professional, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend requesting him as your tour guide.

Brijesh picked us up in the morning, right on time again, even though we were running late. He was ready to bring us to the Baby Taj but we decided to go straight back to Delhi instead. He still stopped to show us the front and back and took pictures for us. I would hire Brijesh to drive me everywhere if I could so I would definitely highly recommend requesting him as well.

We had a great weekend and it was all thanks to Brijesh and Roki! Thanks again!
