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.

Mr. Sharma made this trip incredible. I couldn't believe how much I lucked out with such a great tour guide. It was a long day 4 hours each way and lunch was a bit rushed, but it was well worth it. I was picked up at 5AM in Guragon by a nice driver. We weren't able to communicate much, but he was nice and safe. The car was small 4 door sedan like a late 90s Toyota Camry. The rest stops each way were a nice break for food and to stretch your legs. I didn't get back until about 7PM, so the 14 hour mark is right on.

Fantastic tour led by Hussain. He gave us an experience, not facts like he was reading from a pamphlet. Great facts and history, while also letting us make the tour what we wanted to see. I would recommend this to anyone looking to go to the Taj! Agra Fort was also incredibly beautiful, and we got to see marble stores after as well.

This was a tremendous trip. All details were taken care of, you don't have to worry about a thing. Driver was pleasant and had plenty of water. Tour guide was informative but didn't smother you and allowed you to explore on your own. The only tip I would give is be careful of the photographers. They say cheap price and take great pictures, just be willing to pay apx. 50 US. On the other hand, they capture perfect pictures and give you electronic AND 5 x 7 hard copy prints!

Lunch was at a small off beaten restaurant but it was SO GOOD! Be prepared for the heat and try not to take a bag in to the Taj Mahal.

Perfect timing of this trip. When we left there were long lines to get in.

Don't miss this trip if you are in India.

Took this tour during a short visit to Delhi, and it was definitely worth it -- private transfer in a very clean and air conditioned car, with hotel pick-up and drop-off, and private tour guide on site. It was a very convenient excursion, and hassle free. The tour guide knew all the best photo spots too! Driver was very friendly and cordial. If you have a short stay in Delhi, and time enough for a full day to visit Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, then this tour is the best way to go. The tour company was GetHolidays.com, booked through Viator. I like the convenience of booking through Viator. Thanks!
