What You Can Expect

Private Day Trip By Train: Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri from Delhi

Witness the Taj Mahal

Your driver arrives at your hotel in New Delhi at 5:15am and transfers you by air-conditioned car to the New Delhi railway station.

Depart for Agra on an air-conditioned express train that offers breakfast. Your private guide and driver meet you at the Agra railway station to begin your private tour.

Travel in an air-conditioned vehicle, heading first to the Taj Mahal. Built in the 17th century by Emperor Shah Jahan, the Taj Mahal is one of India's most iconic sights. Next up, take in the palaces inside the Agra Fort, an architectural wonder made for the Mughal Emperor Akbar in 1565AD. 

Take a break for lunch at a restaurant (own expense) then continue on to the abandoned city of Fatehpur Sikri. Built by Emperor Akbar in the 16th century, the red stone palace is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

From the Mehtab Bagh (Moonlight Garden) across the river, view the Taj Mahal during the sunset. After sunset, spend one final hour in Agra before transferring to the Agra train station at 8:30pm for the return journey to Delhi. 

Upon arrival in New Delhi, your tour ends with transfer back to your hotel.

Had to cancel train trip as I had to be back at the airport to fly to Varanasi. Tour guide then got me a car and driver at no extra cost in order to get me to the airport on time. Taj Mahal was AWESOME but even more so was the Agra Fort, the simplicity and detail and thoroughy genial planning that went into the palace was inspiring!

The Taj Mahal tour was amazing. Our guide was Faizal and he was very fluent in English and described the history of Taj Mahal, Red Fort and baby Taj Mahal very well. Faizal was very courteous, professional attitude and assisted in taking pictures. Our car driver was Vickie who showed up at our hotel on exact time. Vickie was very soft spoken driver, very polite and always waiting to pick us up on all monuments. I would highly recommend this tour.

the drivers were prompt and professional. They both made sure we were safely escorted to the trains and waited with us until we were on the train and departed. Our tour guide Saed was very pleasant and professional and gave us lots of historical information. We ended up not visiting the Sikri due to the far distance and instead saw 2 other monuments that were closer to the Taj. All in all it was a wonderful experience. Grateful to have seen the Taj first thing in the morning, as the crowds that came would have hampered our experience.

Nice excursion! My guide had perfect Spanish and we visit all places specified. They were very kind and polite. The entrances cost are 2020 INR and I spent another 1000 for lunch. The only bad points were:
- Train: in the train to go I went in second class. In the middle seat between a big man and another unpolite. The train to come back was was first class and was better very far anyway from European first or second class
- We finished the tour two hours in advance as were were lucky with small queues in the places and fewtraffic. They left me waiting in a cafeteria where the wifi was not working properly and there was nothing to do

All in all good tour. The guide in Agra was not the best. He was not very informative, and seemed more interested in his cell phone and text messages than my tour.

2 of us went on the tour, liked it very much, special thanks to our Tour Guide in Agra, Faisal, for his knowledge and willingness to share it, enthusiasm about his job, very gentle and respectful attitude toward his customers.
There were some changes to the itinerary:
- it was suggested that we take a car not a train, because trains tend to be late, and we agreed
- we went to Baby Taj in Agra instead of Fatehpur Sikri, which we did not realise that there was a substitution still beautiful
- we were offered a free tour of Delhi for the next day, and we agreed why it was offered to us... we only can guess, though very grateful for it. We had to choose 4 locations from a list, and 3 of them we did, the last one was Gandhi memorial on the tour guide suggestion and it turned to be the highlight.

Highly recommend, And if your morning driver is running late, have the hotel call them - to avoid missing your train. Also, the whole call to confirm within 48 hours prior to the trip was lost on me, and I shouldn't have to do that. The driver was great and ended up driving us all the way back to deli for a reasonable price since our train was going to be postponed by several hours and none of us wanted to wait around that long. The tour guide was great and knowledgable but it was irritating that he kept taking pictured for us rather then pointing out the good spots to get the perfect image. It was handy to have a person take our group photo all over the place though. If you are on your own and uneasy in unfamiliar places or are not use to travelling in India or similar places, take a tour with a driver to and from Delhi. But the train is quicker, and the cookies were quite good.

Train did not work out due to regular delays. Local tour company assign a dedicated driver and car to me, it was a long day, depart Dehli around 5 and arrive Taj Mahal around 8 and back to Dehli around 8pm, local guide met us there, he showed me around well. By the end .took me to some local specialty store, not so stressful but I decide to but some small souvenirs. Overall it was good tour with dedicated car, driver, local guide, good local experience , well worth the money.

This tour was ok. The visit to the Taj Mahal was the highlight of it. One of those bucket list experiences to capture that iconic photo. TBH, I don and #39;t know my guide and #39;s name, which is odd for me, he was professional enough but very disinterested in any concerns I had.
