Overview

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.

  • Vegetarian meal option available
  • Day trip (destination A to B)
  • Private guide for a more personalized experience
  • Breakfast 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.

    Cancellation Policy

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

Driver met me on time 2:30am. The fog prevented sunrise at Taj, but tour was successful. In Agra, personal guide takes you to the Red Fort and Taj Mahal and to interesting shops in town. I met Raj Sharma the Manager in Agra.

The tour was great. The Driver and guides were really polite and friendly, provided water and other drinks during the trip and helped us taking photos in the best spots of the tour telling us stories about the monuments. One of the best tours I had. If you can define your own tour stops avoid all the tourist places they take where you are kind of pressured to buy things. Spend this time doing more interesting things.

As a female solo traveller, I felt very safe and well taken care of on this trip. It was a long and cray day but worth all of it. I was picked up on time by a very friendly driver, Dharmendra, at 2:30am from my hotel. I went during high fog season in Dehli December, so it took us over 5 hours to get to Agra. My driver was being as safe as one could be in the fog. There were times that I had to close my eyes and not look- so something to think about if booking during fog season in the fall. When we arrived, I had breakfast and met my guide. As it was so foggy, he suggested we visit Agra Fort first. Although I didn't get to see Taj Mahal at sunrise, it was great to get the back story to both structure's history. My guide, Rishi Pal, has a degree in history, spoke perfect English and was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history. I highly recommend if visiting Agra that you go to the sites with a guide as there are millions of little details to know about. As an engineer, I found both structures fascinating and of course the history of religion, kings, love, and betrayal was also amazing. I also was taken to lunch and two stores for replica rug work from Agra Fort and marble work from Taj Mahal. I guess in combination of getting wrapped up in the excitement, operating on very little sleep and the long and crazy drive in the fog, I went home with a rug and a marble candle holder! What a day! FYI - without fog, we made it back to Dehli in 3.5 hours.

What an amazing tour! Our driver was Vishan and he was very prompt and arrived on-time for our pick-up and he was very quick to pick us up when we were done in between tour sites. Our tour guide was also very animated and provided insightful history of the Taj Mahal. Also, the tour operator was very available and answered our questions and accomodate every single request we had. I highly recommend.
