Overview

Visit three jewels of India’s Mughal Empire on this private day trip to Agra and Fatehpur Sikri from Delhi. Traveling by private vehicle with a private driver, journey to Agra for a guided tour of the magnificent Taj Mahal. Learn the tragic story behind the mausoleum as you explore, and visit 16th-century Agra Fort, where the Emperor Shah Jahan, who commissioned the Taj, spent his last days. See the Tomb of Itmad-ud Daullah, and lastly, visit Fatehpur Sikri, the extraordinary abandoned capital of the Mughals, on route back to Delhi.
  • Explore the World Heritage listed Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri on this full day tour from Delhi
  • Travel by chauffeured air-conditioned vehicle
  • Enjoy the personalized service provided by your own knowledgeable local guide
  • Entrance fees to all monuments visited included
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.

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.

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.

Even though it was 46 degrees celsius, getting out to Agra to see and learn about the history of the Taj Mahal was definitely worth it. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Other than the weather, the day was enjoyable.

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.

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!
