What You Can Expect

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

Taj Mahal

To begin your private tour to the Taj Mahal and Fatehpur Sikri, you will be collected from your hotel at 6am to travel to Agra by road, 124 miles (204 kilometers) from Delhi and home to the sublimely beautiful Taj Mahal.

The World Heritage-listed Taj Mahal was built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in the 17th century, during a golden era of art and architecture in India. The world's most extravagant monument built for love was constructed as a tomb for Shah Jahan's beloved wife, Mumtaz Muhal, who died giving birth to their 14th child. Construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1631 and was not completed until 1653. You will be amazed by the intricate carvings and designs that have withstood the test of time, and be intrigued as you hear the stories of love and tragedy.

After lunch at a restaurant of your choice (at your own expense), you will visit Agra Fort, the Halls of Public and Private Audience and the Tomb of Itmad-ud Daullah.

On your return trip to Delhi, visit Fatehpur Sikri, 24 miles (40 kilometers) from Agra. This magnificent ghost city was built by Emperor Akbar in 1569 and became the capital of Mughal India for 15 years before it was abandoned due to sarcity of water.Your guide will show you all the points of interest including Jama Masjid, the 54-meter-high Victory Gate (Buland Darwaza), the white marble tomb of Shikh Salim Chrishti as well as many palaces and pavilions that blend elements of Hindu, Islamic and Persian architecture.

Return to your hotel in Delhi by road.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The length of the trip can vary depending on the unpredictable traffic, so please be prepared for a long day.

Wonderful tour. Managed to see 3 Unesco sites Taj Mahal ,Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri as we wished.Could have been better if we have stayed at Agra for one night.Thanks to Viator for arranging such a great tour.

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.

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.

The tour guide to Agra was OK. He was on time, he was nice, and he was willing to share information. The local tour guide at the Taj Mahal was exceptional. He was easy to understand, extremely knowledgeable, and shared a great deal of information. We were a little disappointed that the the tour did not include Fatehpur Sikri. We paid extra for this side trip but there wasn't enough time in the day to include it. That was a little misleading in the tour information. We should have only been charged for the Taj Mahal and Red Fort trip or not have spent time at the marble and carpet stores unless asked.
