Private Tour: Day Trip to Taj Mahal and Agra Fort from Jaipur

Agra Fort

After pickup from your Jaipur hotel in the morning, relax on a comfortable 4-hour drive to the world-famous Taj Mahal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Spanning an area of about 1,000 acres (400 hectares), this majestic architectural wonder, flanked by several red-sandstone buildings, offers endless incredible sights. Follow your guide on a tour and learn about the structure’s magnificent Persian, Turkish and Indian architecture, apparent in its grand facade and intricate interior.

A beautiful garden and long pond lead to its predominant edifice, the iconic white-marbled mausoleum built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved third wife, Mumtaz Mahal.

Witness the interesting fusion of Hindu and Islamic architectural influences as you walk inside the fort and learn about the different functions of the various buildings. After your tour, you’ll be taken back to your Jaipur hotel.
