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

The Taj Mahal of Agra is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, for reasons more than just looking magnificent. It's the history of Taj Mahal that adds a soul to its magnificence: a soul that is filled with love, loss, remorse, and love again. Because if it was not for love, the world would have been robbed of a fine example upon which people base their relationships. An example of how deeply a man loved his wife, that even after she remained but a memory, he made sure that this memory would never fade away. This man was the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, who was head-over-heels in love with Mumtaz Mahal, his dear wife. She was a Muslim Persian princess (her name Arjumand Banu Begum before marriage) and he was the son of the Mughal Emperor Jehangir and grandson of Akbar the Great. It was at the age of 14 that he met Mumtaz and fell in love with her. Five years later in the year 1612, they got married.


Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Agra Fort Rakabgani, Agra 282003 India

Agra Fort was built in the year 1573 under the reign of Akbar – one of the greatest Mughal Emperors. It took more than 4000 workers and eight years of hardship to complete the fort. Knowing the significance of its location, Akbar built the fort to make it the main residence of the Mughals. The fort remained as the main residence of the emperors belonging to the Mughal dynasty until the year 1638. The fort houses numerous impressive structures like the Jahangir Mahal, Khas Mahal, Diwan-i-Khass, Diwan-i-Am, Machchhi Bhawan and Moti Masjid. In 1638, the capital of the Mughal dynasty was moved from Agra to Delhi, causing the Agra Fort to lose its status as the main residence of the Mughal emperors. The fort is separated from its sister monument Taj Mahal by just 2.5 kilometers. Often described as the walled city, Agra Fort is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Today, the fort is a major tourist spot and attracts many tourists from all over the world.

If you are visiting Agra, you ought to pay a visit to this diminishing piece of beauty, which stands as an initial to every marble monument that glorifies Agra.

We had limited time so this tour was really helpful. Manoj was in contact with us to coordinate everything, and the tour guide, Raj, spoke very good English, explained everything with great details, and took the best pictures for us! Using the train was also very easy, definitely saved us time in traffic. We also visited 2 artisan/handcraft places as part of the tour and bought some marble coasters and jewelry. If you don't want to do any shopping, make sure you let them know beforehand. The food at the restaurant for lunch was also good. Highly recommend this tour!
