What You Can Expect

2-Day Private Tour of Agra from Delhi including Taj Mahal at Full Moon

Fatehpur Sikri

Day 1: Delhi – Agra (L,D)
After private pick up from Delhi in an air-conditioned vehicle, begin the journey to Agra. After the 3-hour drive, visit Itmad-Ud-Daulah, the tomb of a Persian nobleman, also referred to as 'Baby Taj.' The exquisite early-17th-century structure boasts baroque carvings and is the first Mughal monument built entirely of marble. From here, head to lunch at a local restaurant and relish in the flavors of Rajasthan. 

Walk off your lunch by taking a guided tour on foot inside Agra Fort. Marvel at several of its striking structures, like the Moti Masjid (Pearl Mosque) and the glass palace of Shish Mahal before heading to Meena Bazaar to peruse the stalls selling various quality crafts such as marble figurines and precious gems. Return to the hotel to relax and enjoy dinner.

At night, enjoy a special treat only few are able to experience – seeing the Taj Mahal under a full moon! Enjoy the sight of the white-marble monument changing colors under the light of the moon. As full moons only occur once a month, with the few days before and after being equally as bright and beautiful, this is one experience not to be missed.

Overnight: 3-star hotel in Agra

Day 2: Agra – Delhi (B)
On your second day, after breakfast see the full glory of Taj Mahal on a guided tour inside the mausoleum and the surrounding garden and buildings. Admire the white-domed marble monument, constructed by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan for his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, and gaze at the intricate interior designs. Afterward, you will be driven to Fatehpur Sikri (the City of Victory). On a tour of the complex, discover the intriguing mix of Muslim and Hindu architecture of its various royal residences, large meeting halls and grand mosques.

On the way back to Delhi, you may stop for lunch (own expense) at a popular restaurant per your guide’s suggestion.

Please note: If you are traveling on a Thursday, both daytime and nighttime visits to the Taj Mahal will happen on the first day. The rest of the planned visits will occur on the next day (Akbar the Great, Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri).

Seeing the Taj Mahal is a must for anyone visiting India and this tour lets you see it twice! Our guide was fantastic... we got tons of excellent photos of the Taj, and our guide was very happy to tell us which spots were best, and took photos of the both of us together. She was also very knowledgeable and patient as she was explaining about the Taj and the Agra Fort.

We caved and opted for the "professional" photographer at the Taj. Although most people would probably advise against it, we found it worth the price (100 rupees per pic that you decide to print) as the guide could speak Hindi and was yelling at people in the crowd to move away so that we could get a clear picture with no people in the background! Would have been impossible to do on our own...

This tour is highly recommended, and hopefully you get the same guide we did...a female (I want to say her name is Jaya, but can't remember for sure). Our driver was also excellent and brought me fresh jalebis on the 2nd morning as I had told our guide the previous evening that I wanted to find a place to buy some :)

While my initial impression of Gets was a rocky one due to the incredibly slow communication during the planning phase of our tour, once I was actually in India, things picked up very quickly. I enjoyed seeing the Taj and the Fatehpur I also have to give Gets some major bonus points for how flexible and willing to please the customer they were. You want a massage in Agra? you got it. You want a private yoga lesson? You got that too. Thank you Tikendra, sir!
My actual guides of the landmarks ranged anywhere from a 4/5 to a 5/5 on the enthusiasm for their craft. I think everyone did a good job overall.

P.S. The full Moon view of the Taj, at least the one I saw was so-so. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it again.
