What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Agra, Taj Mahal and Fatehpur Sikri Day Trip from Delhi

Taj Mahal

Depart your central Delhi hotel in the early morning by private, air-conditioned vehicle to begin your journey to Agra. Along the way, chat to your private driver and gaze out over India’s passing landscapes and villages.

After roughly three hours, arrive in bustling Agra, the home of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Taj Mahal. Get tantalizing glimpses of this incredible 17th-century building as you approach. Then, on arrival, meet your local guide and head inside the grounds of the monument.

Walk through the domed gateway, and marvel at the exquisite white marble Taj. Commissioned by the Emperor Shah Jahan in 1632 as a mausoleum for his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, this majestic tomb looks mirage-like from a distance. Stroll around the gardens, terrace and interior as you learn fascinating facts about its construction and symmetrical design.

Hear the tragic love story behind the building, and then, after lunch (own expense) at a local restaurant, visit another UNESCO-protected treasure — Agra Fort. Explore the halls of this 16th-century fort, and learn how Shah Jahan was imprisoned and died here in a tower that looked out over the Taj.

Wrap up your Agra visit at another Mughal masterpiece, the Tomb of Itmad-ud Daullah, and then start your return journey to Delhi. On route, make a last stop to see Fatehpur Sikri, the deserted 16th-century capital of the Mughal Empire.

As you walk around the complex and adjoining Jama Masjid mosque and Victory Gate (Buland Darwaza), learn how Fatehpur was built in 1539 and then abandoned just a decade later.

Your day trip then ends with a hotel drop-off back in Delhi.

Please note: The duration of this trip can vary depending on traffic levels, so please be prepared for a long day.

A must do for everyone visiting the area. The red fort was also very impressive. Never had a chance to see the Fatehpur Sikri though - apparently very few do because the day is already long enough.

Excellent tour, excellent guide and excellent driver! Although it's tough visiting all 3 places in just 1 day, our guides did not rush through the sites and explanations. We had an amazing day with 2 very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable guides. Our day was very flexible unlike the usual rushed and rigid schedule of tours. Before we left Agra, we even managed to find some nice local dosa eatery thanks to our guide and not eat at some touristy restaurant. He even went out of the way to get us some Agra delicacy to take home. Long drive to and back from Agra, but the sights along the way (including the trucks and jams) were an eye opener. One of the guides also happened to be an excellent photog, took great pixs for us. Highly recommend this trip. Viator and the tour agency from Delhi did a great job!

The guide, Nitu, definitely made the tour. He was informative, entertaining and took very good care of all of us. He warned us, beforehand, of the hawkers and what to not say. He also made sure that we saw the right things, at the right times. Also, during the long ride out to the Taj, he kept us entertained on the bus. The Taj was spectacular, and definitely not to be missed.

Valuable excursion. Lasts about 16 hours and quite long drives. Comfortable small car, driver and guide OK. The rate for this excursion is too expensive. It's easy to organize the same trip from Delhi within an hour through government tourist office at less 40 percent.

Was a wonderful all day tour seeing the Taj Mahal was the best part of it. Although the driver was a little late for the early morning start. Would definitely recommend it. The tour guide was very knowledgable.

Wonderful trip, really wonder of the world. The trip was OK, however seeing all three places was not possible because not enough time. Local guide was excellent. As the road was not good at some parts, car's suspension should be made better. Contact number given was no longer in use and should be renewed as appear in the voucher. Luckily the guy with number given was so nice to help contacting Intrepid tour manager, even it was saturday.
