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

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

Take a private tour of several antique structures of Agra, a city on the banks of the Yamuna River. Private pickup will take you from Delhi approximately four hours to Agra. Stop first at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Agra Fort, a treasure house of Mughal architecture.

This 94-acre (34-hectare) brick fort dates back to 1080 AD and has seen many battles and undergone major renovations. Witness the interesting fusion of Hindu and Islamic influences on its construction and decor as you walk inside the fort with your guide and learn about the different functions of the buildings including the Moti Masjid (Pearl Fort), Diwan-i-Khas (Hall of Private Audience), Diwan-i-Am (Hall of Public Audience), Sheesh Mahal (Mirror Palace) and more.

Head to the Taj-Mahal, India’s most iconic building and a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site. Along the way, stop at a popular restaurant for traditional Indian eats.

Spanning an area of about 1,000 acres (400 hectares), this majestic architectural wonder offers incredible sights. On your guided tour, admire the structure’s magnificent construction, the intricate exterior and interior decor, the beautiful garden and the outlying red-sandstone buildings. Its most predominant structure, the white-domed marble mausoleum, was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, and combines Persian, Turkish and Indian architectural styles.

Finally, visit the Tomb of Itmad-ud-Daulah, situated on the opposite bank of the Yamuna from the Taj Mahal and commonly known as the Baby Taj. Built between 1622 and 1628 by Empress Nur Jahan for her father, the mausoleum is often described as a jewel box. Admire the trellis work and precious stone inlay as you listen to your guide’s commentary and learn about the strong Persian influence on the tomb’s design—the first in India entirely made out of marble.

At the end of private tour, sit back and relax on the drive back to Delhi.

The trip was excellent from beginning to end. The driver arrived a few minutes earlier at the hotel, very polite and efficient. The guide in Agra, Mr Shyam Rathi, was knowledgeable, sensitive, and caring. He provided a superb tour of the Taj and Agra Fort. He was also an expert photographer and helped in showing us beautiful new angles for the pictures. Highly recommended!

Just like the wonder of Taj Mahal amazed all of us, we are also really impressed by such a good trip we booked through Viator. We were picked up punctually at our hotel by the shuttle and it is really comfortable and spacious, we met the tourist guide Akash Anand at the Taj Mahal entrance, a great storyteller who brought us back to the 17th century in presence of the legend of this eternal love. Every single details of this white marble construction just took our breath away. We really enjoyed this tour and undoubtedly it is the best!

The tour was amazing! The guide said he was selling dreams and painting pictures! Well let me tell you he really brought the story to life! The only complaint was that he was a little hard to understand at times....he spoke very good english..just had a lisp or something.

Jugnoo was an excellent guide. He spoke about the history behind each of the locations that we visited. He also provided the necessary tips such that I would not be taken advantage of at each location like how to handle street vendors. I would highly recommend this tour. Furthermore, I would request Jungoo as your guide.

This trip was excellent from start to finish. My driver Pracass, who was very friendly, arrived at my hotel 15 minutes early to pick me up for trip over to Agra. During my journey, he pointed out a number of landmarks and towns and gave me a brief overview of each one, he even offered to stop to let me take pictures if I wished to. Once we arrived in Agra we met up with my tour guide for the day - Mohd Jugnu - who was excellent and a very pleasent person - his in depth knowledge of the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and the Mini Taj was amazing and made each portion of the tour so much more interesting than other tours I have taken in the past. He was also an excellent photographer - he took all my pictures for me with my camera - knowing all the spots to get the best pictures including the trick photography. He was also very good at navigating through and around the various pan handlers and photographers in and around each of the sites. I would recommend him to anyone traveling to see Agra and the Taj. The lunch included with the tour was very good. The return trip was uneventful and the driver dropped me off at the Dehli Airport for my trip back to Mumbai. I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see the Taj Mahal but has only a short time in Dehli - its a long day but very rewarding and memorable.

It was a bumpy, long 3 hour drive from Delhi to Agra, but it was well worth the trip. Our driver was courteous and friendly and arrived on time at our hotel. Our guide, Mohd Jugnu, was a native of Agra and knowledgeable of the history of the sites we visited. He was helpful in taking numerous photos of us at all the best locations. The booking process for the tour was easy and we got numerous emails with information about our guide and driver and contact information if we had any questions.
