Stop At: Taj Mahal, Dharmapuri, Forest Colony, Tajganj, Agra 282001 India

The Taj Mahal, celebrated for its architectural magnificence and aesthetic beauty. Emperor Shah Jahan built this exquisite white marble mausoleum for his favourite queen Mumtaz Mahal. The monument was commissioned in 1631 and took 20,000 artisans, 22 years to complete. Witness the dramatic interplay of light as the sun rises and casts its golden rays over the pearl white tomb, recreating the magic of the Taj.

the Agra Fort, an outstanding example of Mughal architecture and stronghold of the Mughal Empire under successive generations. Shah Jahan, the creater of Taj, spent the last years of his life time imprisonment awarded by his son Aurangzeb, here. It was built in the late 1560`s by their predecessor, Akbar, with later embellishments by Jahangir, his son, and Shah Jahan, his grandson.
Later on, move to Fatehpur Sikri for an hour drive.

Fatehpur Sikri. Located 37 km from Agra, Fatehpur Sikri was built by Mughal emperor Akbar in 1571 in honour of the Sufi saint, Sheikh Salim Chisti.

Travel from the airport in Delhi was seamless and the driver Sarbar was amazing throughout the whole trip. We were met by Sumit and Sandeep at our hotel in Agra who greeted us warmly and arranged a special dinner for one of the group members who was celebrating her birthday complete with a cake! Our Sunrise tour of the Taj Mahal was something that I will never forget and I was able to get the perfect picture, thanks to our tour guide Sandeep! Amazing tour and I will never forget this trip.

This tour started off really well - Taj Mahal was amazing and the guide provided a lot of really interesting knowledge. I also got time to walk around by myself. Tour of Agra Fort was interesting but short. We then went to Fatehpur Sikri - there was a different guide for this part who was also really knowledgeable (I would have liked them to tell me this; the other guide just left and I thought I was going to be alone for this part). Back to Agra for lunch - included in the tour and was amazing! Finally, we went to see Baby Taj - this was the big let down of the tour as the guide didn't think it was included and had to ring up to check however it was fine - he also seemed to be a bit over the tour at this point and seemed to be annoyed. Overall however, it was a really good tour. Perhaps not the best for budget travellers but I still enjoyed it.

After the purchase I received a Wasapp text from Mr Upadhyay outlining the plan for the tour including pickup times and itinerary. At every stage I was kept informed. Guide and driver were on time every time and very informative. My wife and I encountered some unforeseen issues and Akbran Tour's was extremely accommodating providing escorts as needed. They are the BEST and truly care about their customers. Thank you !

This is a really good tour. We booked directly with Akbran and had our own guide and driver for the day. This made everything easy and enjoyable and being escorted we avoided a lot of hassle from touts etc especially in Fatehpur Sikri which would be very difficult to visit on our own. Everything was well organised and professional and I'd recommend it. Agra city is pretty run down and unattractive so it was great having the driver to bring us to the places of interest..

Bit of a mixed bag. The guide was on time but said very little much of the time and talked on his smartphone. He told me the tour did not include Tomb of Itmad ud Daulah but accepted it did when shown the voucher. After Agra Fort, he informed us he was leaving and another guide would meet us at Fatehpur Sikri. We were sent off with only a driver. When we went to the lunch stop, they insisted we had to pay for our lunch although we were told it was included when booking confirmed on our paperwork. As we had no guide with us, we had no option but to pay. Afternoon guide at Fatehpur Sikri was good but did drag us to shopping opportunity we did not need. Overall, OK but left a bit of a bitter taste.
