What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Agra and the Taj Mahal Day Trip from Delhi

Agra Fort

Your day trip to Agra starts with the 124-mile (204-km) drive from Delhi, admiring the views of India outside the window of your private vehicle. When you arrive, your first stop is the Taj Mahal, the world’s biggest symbol of love.

Commissioned by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in dedication to his wife, this mausoleum and World Heritage site is known for its white marble façade. While you take in the opulence of the structure and its surrounding garden, hear stories about love, loss and stunning architectural accomplishments from your guide.

Then head to your second stop, Agra Fort, located across the Yamuna River. Enter the walls of the huge fortress with your guide, and explore the maze of structures that form this city within a city, built by Emperor Akbar in the late 1500s. While you walk, learn from your guide about the fort’s history, as well as art and architecture in India at the time. Your day trip then ends with return to Delhi in your private vehicle.

Please note: The drive between Delhi and Agra is typically four to five hours each way, but the duration can vary depending on unpredictable traffic conditions on the day of your tour. Please be prepared for a long tour.

It was a good tour. One of the best bits was that we skipped the line to get in. Saved us hours of queuing in the heat. The guide was knowledgeable and very informative. Lunch was pretty good too.

The tour guide was incredible! What an experience! The driver almost fell asleep at the wheel on the way home, at least it looked that way. I made a comment and that seemed to wake him up. Kind of scary! But the guide was absolutely amazing. Spoke fluent English and easy to understand, got waters for us throughout the day, navigated the sites and the people for us. Really good experience!

This tour was brilliant and all I could have asked for. Raza, the driver, was early to pick me up from my hotel and stopped for refreshment along the long drive. My guide, Asif, met us in Agra. Both explained all I would need to know and Asif was attentive and thoroughly knowledgeable. ☆☆☆☆☆

My mother and I had a great time on this trip! Our driver was very friendly and knowledgeable and we loved hearing his stories. Our tour guide was a great photographer and helped us take incredible photos. We also really loved lunch at the restaurant Indiana.

I would definitely recommend this tour! The driver and tour guide were awesome. The Indiana restaurant where we had lunch was delicious. I am from Indiana so I got a kick out of the name.
The drive back and forth from Delhi to Agra was quite an experience, but worth it. We were picked up from our hotel and dropped off safely. Great job guys!

We loved our day trip to Agra. Our driver Raza was absolutely brilliant and is a credit to Viator. He was even able to add on a trip to Fatephur Sikri at the very last minute. We felt in very good hands with Raza. Thank you!!

This was a great tour. A driver Raza picked me up at my hotel exactly on time. The drive to Agra was quick with a pitstop about mid point. Then the tour of Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort. The Taj Mahal was beyond anything I ever imagined. With the driver and my tour guide, I always felt safe.
