Start early with morning pickup in Agra, then go to the Taj Mahal to watch the sunrise.
The Taj Mahal is one of India's most renowned monuments, and it is designated as a World Heritage Site. Hear from your guide about its history as you explore the grounds.
At 11:30am, drive out to Agra Fort, the red sandstone fort set in the hills outside Agra. The architecture combines both Hindu and Central Asian styles, and dates to 1565 AD. Discover the labyrinth of courtyards, mosques, and private chambers within the fortified walls of the complex.
After visiting the fort, have 1.5 hours to relax during lunch, then drive one hour outside of the city to Fatehpur Sikri, another World Heritage Site. It was built by Emperor Akbar in the late 16th century, abandoned after only 14 years, and has been described as a perfectly preserved ghost town.
Return to Agra in the early evening and have time for shopping for Agra's handicrafts such as marble and stone inlay work, leather goods, brass, jewelry, carpets, and embroidery.
Your tour ends at 7pm with transfer back to your hotel, airport or to the train station.
