What You Can Expect

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

After pickup in Delhi by private vehicle, your day trip begins with the approximate 4-hour drive to Agra, a city located on the Yamuna River.

Your first stop is Agra Fort, a World Heritage site and Mughal architectural wonder. With your private guide, enter the 94-acre (34-hectare) brick fort, noting the mix of Islamic and Hindu influences in its design. Hear about the purposes of the various buildings such as the Hall of Private Audience (Diwan-i-Khas), Pearl Fort (Moti Masjid), Mirror Palace (Sheesh Mahal) and Hall of Public Audience (Diwan-i-Am).  

Next, enjoy a lunch of Indian dishes at a local restaurant before continuing your tour to your second World Heritage site and perhaps India’s most iconic landmark, the Taj Mahal. Built in the mid-1600s, this white marble mausoleum was commissioned by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in dedication to his wife. Learn about the Turkish, Indian and Persian architectural styles as you admire the detailed interior and exterior décor, the beautiful garden and the general magnificence of the place with your guide.

Then head to your last attraction, the Tomb of Itmad-ud-Daulah, another mausoleum sometimes referred to as the Baby Taj, as it was one inspiration for the Taj Mahal and sits just across the river from it. Learn from your guide about the Persian influences behind the design of the tomb as you admire its stone inlay and trellis work. Your day trip then ends with the return drive to Delhi.

Great tour to an architectural wonder of the world. Driver Ashish was fantastic. He drove safely, comfortably and very professionally. Made sure plenty of cool water was available and also rest stops if required. Guide Bipul was very knowledgeable and helped guide through Taj Mahal and Agra Fort and its history. A very enjoyable trip.

Gets Holidays is an amazing tour company with a very professional and customer oriented staff. Prior to my trip, their staff provided me the contact details of my driver, Ashish and confirmed the pickup time and location. Separately, their Guest Relationship Manager, Mokshada reached out to me via Whatsapp as an alternate contact, should there by any issues during the trip. Ashish arrived on time at the hotel, and was an excellent companion, speaking good English and providing good conversation throughout the drive to Agra and back. We made a stop prior to reaching Agra, and he provided me ample time to explore shops. In Agra, we met with our Tour Guide Hussain, who provided excellent insights on the history of the Taj Mahal and its builders, as well as Agra Fort and those who lived there. It had been a good idea to book a tour guide for the trip, because it enabled a better appreciation of the places - beyond just taking pictures - to hear how these structures had been important in the lives of the people of the past, and even those present today. Because it was the middle summer, Ashish made sure that he had plenty of drinking water, keeping an icebox in his trunk. This came in handy especially towards noon, when the temperature became unbearable. A buffet lunch was included at the end of the tour, and the choice of restaurant - Pinch of Spice - was excellent, There were plenty of different Indian dishes to try, and it was a good place to wind down before the drive back. We got back to the city just in time before the evening rush hour. Mokshada also called while we were on our way back to ensure that everything was well. Overall, it was a very memorable experience. I am looking to seeing more of India, and contact Gets Holidays should I get the chance.

This was a MUST do. It was perfect to get a private guide to take you to all the great locations. While in Agra I highly recommend you stop at the Fort. Mr. Hussain was our guide and he had so much knowledge and delivered it in a way that was easy to understand and was a great storyteller.

Very nice tour, the tour includes the pick-up and drop-off from/to hotel, lunch and the all entrance fee. Our tour guide did not explain alot of the story of Taj Mahal, instead, he let us wonder around Taj Mahal freely and tell us to take our time to enjoy/experience Taj Mahal. It might be not suitable for people who like to know and to learn about Taj Mahal.

My driver, Ashish Gandhi, picked me up at precisely at 6am, and we drove 3.5 hours to Agra. Ashish was a great driver and fun to chat with. He also let me take a nap when I needed it. We met my guide, Krishna Chand Joshi, in Agra. This was a very efficient tour of Taj Mahal and Agra Fort well coordinated on car pickup, Tuk Tuk use, etc. I had a great lunch at Pinch of Spice, with a fabulous greeter at door with huge mustache. Everyone was so nice. The drive back was smooth. New expressway makes a big difference. Thanks!

Thank you to our driver Ashish and our tour guide Hussain for a wonderful tour of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. We enjoyed the trip thoroughly and would highly recommend it to others. Ashish was a wonderful driver and provided an enjoyable ride from Delhi to Agra with interesting facts and laughs along the way. Hussain provided us with the most wonderful experience during our tours of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, his great knowledge and ability to paint a picture of the past made the tour amazing. He also has wonderful photography skills to make your memories last a life time.

This was a great tour. The Taj Mahal is an incredible experience that is hard to describe. You really need to see it with your own eyes to truly understand how special it is. My tour guide Hussain was fantastic. He was so passionate about India's history and the building itself and very eager to pass on his knowledge. I am a female and was traveling alone and I always felt completely safe. I highly recommend this tour.
