What You Can Expect

Private Full-Day Sunrise and Sunset Tour at the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort from Agra

The Taj Mahal at sunse

In the early morning, your guide picks you up from your Agra hotel or the Agra train station and takes you to the Taj Majal to watch the sunrise. The stunning white marble mausoleum was constructed by the Mughal emperor Sha Jahan for his favorite wife, Queen Mumtaz Mahal.

Next up, see the Agra Fort. Your guide shares commentary about the blend of Hindu and Central Asian architectural styles seen in the 16th-century monument, which contains a series of elegant palaces inside its fortified walls.

Take a break for a lunch of Indian fare at an air-conditioned restaurant. Afterward, browse handicrafts shops that carry embroidery, jewellery, marble and stone inlay, leather goods, and carpets.

Return to the Taj Mahal before sunset in order to see the iconic site in the evening light. Your guide then ends your tour with drop-off at your hotel or the railway station in the evening.

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2016

Taj and Agra Fort are definitely worth the 160 I spent on this full day tour. HOWEVER: and this is a BIG however for me the high pressure shopping that I was forced to do was ridiculous. After the morning tour which was very foggy, but wonderful because it wasn't crowded, I was taken to a high-priced inlaid marble store, a high-priced rug store, and a high-priced jewelry store. Despite saying No pressure, they continued to show me things after I said 100 times, I'm not buying anything! My guide even admitted that he gets a cut of things we buy at these places. The itinerary said the tour would be over at 7:00 p.m. Because sunset in the winter is so early due to fog and smog, we were done by 3:30. I asked if we could go see something else and was told that would be a 40 extra charge. Seeing Taj twice was necessary because the morning was so foggy, we could only get exterior shots in the afternoon. But it was so crowded in the afternoon, the morning was the only time we could spend any quality time seeing the details of the monument. My guide was very informative and helpful about both Taj and Agra Fort, but you could do it MUCH cheaper on your own with a little help from the internet.
