  • What You Can Expect

    Take a private tour of several antique structures of Agra, a city on the banks of the Yamuna River. Private pickup will take you from Delhi approximately four hours to Agra. Stop first at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Agra Fort, a treasure house of Mughal architecture.

    This 94-acre (34-hectare) brick fort dates back to 1080 AD and has seen many battles and undergone major renovations. Witness the interesting fusion of Hindu and Islamic influences on its construction and decor as you walk inside the fort with your guide and learn about the different functions of the buildings including the Moti Masjid (Pearl Fort), Diwan-i-Khas (Hall of Private Audience), Diwan-i-Am (Hall of Public Audience), Sheesh Mahal (Mirror Palace) and more.

    Head to the Taj-Mahal, India’s most iconic building and a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site. Along the way, stop at a popular restaurant for traditional Indian eats.

    Spanning an area of about 1,000 acres (400 hectares), this majestic architectural wonder offers incredible sights. On your guided tour, admire the structure’s magnificent construction, the intricate exterior and interior decor, the beautiful garden and the outlying red-sandstone buildings. Its most predominant structure, the white-domed marble mausoleum, was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, and combines Persian, Turkish and Indian architectural styles.

    Finally, visit the Tomb of Itmad-ud-Daulah, situated on the opposite bank of the Yamuna from the Taj Mahal and commonly known as the Baby Taj. Built between 1622 and 1628 by Empress Nur Jahan for her father, the mausoleum is often described as a jewel box. Admire the trellis work and precious stone inlay as you listen to your guide’s commentary and learn about the strong Persian influence on the tomb’s design—the first in India entirely made out of marble.

    At the end of private tour, sit back and relax on the drive back to Delhi.

Driver picked me up promptly at 5am....ride to the Taj Mahal in the morning was around 3 hours -- newer interstate to Agra. Drive on the way back was closer to 4 hours due to typical Delhi traffic.

Key points:
1 Driver was safe and was always asking if everything was okay I've spent 6 weeks in India for personal and business and he definitely was one of the least crazy drivers!.
2 Tour guide provided for the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort was very knowledgeable and provided a wonderful historical overview of both sites and how they were interrelated. For somebody who really enjoys history this was a highlight of my whole India trip. He also took WONDERFUL pictures at both sites -- a great way to remember the experience.
3 Lunch was provided at the end of both tours -- it was okay -- if you like spice I would recommend for Hot -- I requested Medium and it was rather bland...
4 Driver asked if I wanted to purchase anything and told him I wasn't interested -- simple as that -- he did not keep asking or stop anywhere --- direct drive back to the hotel in Delhi. This honestly was a welcome relief as you feel people are always trying to sell you junk that you don't want!
5 Recommend this tour!

I and my colleagues were very satisfied about the tour to Agra with your company. The driver came in time and was very professional in the driving. Our first stop was at Taj Mahal, an incredibly beautiful monument. The next stop was Agra Fort full of history and interesting story told by our guide Hussein. The guide was excellent, with perfect English with a lot of knowledge. He felt when we needed more time to take photos or to have a look. The local restaurant where we had lunch was good there we could taste real Indian food which make our journey more completed. After lunch we visited a BabyTaj and returned back to Delhi. It was great tour and I will recommend it to others.

If you have only few days in New Delhi, this Tour is for you. It delivered a maximum of historical sites of Agra in one day. The pick up is a bit early, but we arranged for a box breakfast from our hotel, and a long drive allowed us to nap a bit and eat our food with hot coffee, that we picked up at the road stop. Our driver did inquire if we needed bathroom breaks and coffee. In Agra we were met by our English-speaking guide. Our first stop was at Taj Mahal, an incredibly beautiful monument of white marble, inlaid with coloured stone, semiprecious and precious jewels. Our guide gave us a great history lesson, as we toured the Taj and the gardens. Next stop, was a BabyTaj, a Mughal mausoleum. Beautiful draft miniature of the BigTaj! Our guide provided bottles of water, as it was a hot day. Our final destination was a Red Fort, with multiple palaces inside the red sandstone walls. Wow! All this accompanied by a comprehensive info from our guide. We finished our day in Agra with a late by our standards, but norm in India and delicious lunch at a local restaurant. A meal of traditional chicken, dal and various curry dishes, served in multiple small metal bowls, with naan bread and pappadum and mint/garlic gremolata. Each of us could choose their favourites. Due to late afternoon traffic, the return trip to Delhi was a bit long, but we napped in the very comfortable, air conditioned car. Great Tour!
