Pass By: New Delhi, New Delhi, National Capital Territory of Delhi

Get picked up from either the airport or your New 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.
Once you arrive in Agra, meet your local tour guide and begin a sunrise tour of the world-famous Taj Mahal, and you'll be just in time for sunrise. See just how stunning the majestic palace looks under the beautiful rising sun before you head out with your guide on a tour of the grounds.

After your Taj Mahal tour, enjoy an included buffet breakfast in a 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 (own expense).

My friend and I are visiting India by ourselves and this is in my opinion the safest and best way to visit the Taj Mahal, especially for women travelers! Raj, the tour guide, was very helpful and took some most amazing photos for us! Ravi, the driver, made sure we arrived to and back safe and comfortable. Highly recommend!

This trip was AMAZING. The pick-up/drop-off at the hotel, drive to Agra, and tour guides were perfect. The sites were breathtaking and knowledge of the guide was excellent. My driver and guide were very personable and friendly, which made the tour even better. As a female solo traveler, I felt completely comfortable and safe and was treated like a princess. It was a day I will truly never forget. Thank you!

The day before we were to leave for our Agra trip, another guide told us that it was a waste of time to be picked up from our New Delhi hotel at 2:30 a.m. and be driven to Agra to see the Taj Mahal at dawn. She was very much mistaken. Yes, the trip is 4 hours long, but the driver stops along the way for bathroom breaks, as needed. The time passed quickly. If you think you might get hungry, bringing a snack is a good idea, because you will not have breakfast until after you have seen the Taj Mahal. When we got to Agra, we met our guide who greeted us and gave us an overview of what we might expect. He was very personable and knowledgeable. When we finally came upon the Taj Mahal, the three of us stopped in our tracks. It is an astounding sight/site. Although it was a little foggy, we were able to watch, as the sun came up, the change in hew of this magnificent place. Upon the first light of day, we see the Taj as perfectly white. As time went on, though, the Taj took on the white of the Taj Mahal. As the dawn progressed, we saw the subtle changes in color. Our guide filled us in on the history, and then left us alone for a little over an hour so that we could take it all in, and that we did.When we returned to our guide, he and our driver took us to breakfast, which was quite good. The guid left us alone until we had finished eating. Everything about our tour was perfect. Our driver, was Vishan Sharma, and he was really excellent. He drove well, was accommodating, and interesting. We were extremely pleased with the whole trip. One thing you should know. It seems that the guides partner with some shops in order to bring customers into shops. This was annoying and I ended up going to see how rugs were made. That was my own fault. I had no interest in rugs, I should have said at the outset that we were not interested in crafts. I have done that with other guides and they back off immediately. Just say “No, thanks,” if you are not interested.

We thoroughly enjoyed our sunrise tour of the Taj Mahal with our guide, Rajesh. He was very knowledgable and helped us navigate to get the best photos for our group of 5 women. The breakfast at the hotel was decent and the tour of Agra involved shopping at two shops. We would all highly recommend this tour through La Vacanza Travel.

My wife and I went on the day-long Agra tour and it was excellent. We had a wonderful time. The driver Mr. Prem was very helpful and picked us at our hotel on time at 2:15 am. We had a good drive takes 3 hours one way to Agra and back, and to places within Agra. Prem explained various places of interest along the way. We met the guide Mr. Rajesh in Agra and proceeded to the Taj Mahal. At the Taj, from the location where the taxis drop visitors, there is a 1000 meter walk to the entrance to the complex. We took an electric rickshaw for Rs 50 for the 1000 meters. Once inside the complex and in view of the monument, Rajesh provided us with an excellent description of the history of the Mughal emperors and the materials, construction and craftsmanship of the Taj Mahal. He also described the surrounding monuments. The Taj Mahal itself is a magnificent structure, something unearthly in its beauty even after so many centuries of its construction. None of the photos we had seen earlier prepared us for the sight and beauty of the actual structure. We were able to take our own photos and also availed the services of a professional photographer at the site. The photographer took his photos as we walked up to the Taj Mahal and we continued with our sightseeing after that. We saw the monument in detail and had enough time to spend at the Taj. We saw the Yamuna River from the Taj and the Agra Fort in the distance, where the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan who built the Taj, spent the last 7 years of his life imprisoned by his son Aurangzeb. We collected our photos taken by the professional photographer before we left.

We then went to the Trident, where the breakfast buffet was delicious. The next stop was at a tapestry store, where we saw a demonstration of fine weaving and many examples of completed tapestries. We proceeded to the Agra Fort and Mr. Rajesh described its history and pointed out several unique features of the fort, including the sound/echo effects and ventilation. We saw the bedroom of Shah Jahan, from where he had a view of the Taj Mahal in his final years.

Lastly, we visited an art store where there was a demonstration of how the colored patterns are imprinted on marble surfaces. The store had a good collection of completed marble works. Thanks to both Mr. Rajesh and Mr. Prem, we had a great trip. Their English was clear and easy to understand. They took good care of us during the entire trip. I highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in visiting Agra. Wish you safe and happy travels!
