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.

Highly recommend this day trip, although it is a big day and be ready for a lot of driving! Pickup from Hotel at 7am with about a 3 hour drive to Agra rest stop included. Driver was prompt, friendly and drove safely. We met our guide in Agra and he was great, gave us lots of information and helped us take really great photos on our phones! dont do the Photographer thing, the guide knows how to take just as good photos! He also gave us some free time to explore the Taj Mahal and grounds by ourselves. The Agra Fort was also really great and well worth the visit. Lunch was quite good and then the guide gave us the option if we wanted to do some shopping or not. We opted not to and it was great that he gave us the option instead of just taking us there without asking. The drive back to Delhi was also fine, just Delhi traffic is really bad, even on a Saturday! But in a city that big, it is to be expected! The only thing that could be better was perhaps an email or call a few days before confirming the pickup time from the hotel as we needed to know what time to be ready. I tried to call the local number a few times on the day before but had no luck. I was finally able to get through in the afternoon and they confirmed the pickup time and then followed with an email. However I would highly recommend this trip, it is well worth it to see the amazing Taj Mahal and Agra Fort when you don't have much time in Delhi. Everything was well organised and went very smoothly.

I really enjoyed this tour. The driver stopped halfway for tea and toilet at a clean place. He answered my questions about curiosities along the way, like the smokestacks are for making bricks, he then showed me the acres of drying bricks. Mr. Gunderfir I believe was his name. Very affable.
The guide was also knowledgable about the Taj and the Fort. He was easy to understand and answered my many questions. Also, he know where the best photo taking places were.
I was very pleased with the trip and tour.

Excellent tour. whirlwind tour that picked us up at Delhi airport, drove to Agra, toured Taj and Fort. Amazing places. Raj was outstanding, knowledgeable, entertaining. And he got us through some massive lines without waiting. Definitely worth the price and tips. Raj is a very honest guy, let us know how we were going to be approached by photo people, how to decline if we don't want it. I really appreciated the honesty.
Our stay was too short. Suggest that one stay overnight in agra to go at a slower pace and enjoy the beauty of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort.

Excellent trip from Delhi. Driver was first class throughout the full day explaining things as we drove to and fromAgra. Guide met us in Agra for our Taj Mahal and Agra Fort.
The Taj Mahal visit left me speechless. Its beauty and the history of it takes your breathe away.Our guide was very informative and took us around at a pace suited to us. Plenty of time allowed for photography although best hiring local photographer for this once in a life time visit to Taj
Agra Fort continued our journey from the Taj.
Lunch was included and this was of a high standard.
Returned to Delhi by 7pm a full 12 hour trip that was definately worth it

Highly recommend this tour.
