Taj Mahal and Agra Private Day-Trip from Delhi by Train

Taj Mahal, Agra, India

After early morning pickup from your hotel, transfer to the New Delhi railway station to board the 6am deluxe fast train to Agra. Breakfast is served during the 2-hour journey.

Upon arrival in Agra, look for your driver who waits at the main exit gate with a sign with your name. Transfer to a hotel where you have time to freshen up before your guide arrives at 9am.

Head out in a private air-conditioned vehicle to see the World Heritage-listed Taj Mahal, which is considered the best example of Mughal architecture in India. After two hours at the Taj Mahal, continue to the Agra Fort, another World Heritage Site. The red sandstone fort dates to 1565 and contains courtyards, mosques, and private chambers.

Stop for lunch at a local restaurant after your visit to Agra Fort, then have the option to go to the 'ghost town' of Fatehpur Sikri, a 16th-century World Heritage Site located an hour's drive away from Agra.

Return to Agra at 6pm and go shopping for handicrafts such as brass-ware, carpets, jewellery, embroidery, leather goods, and clothing.

At the end of the tour, transfer to Agra's train station to catch your train back to Delhi at 9:15pm. Dinner is served on board. Upon arrival in New Delhi railway station at approximately 11:30pm, your driver transfers you to your Delhi hotel.

On my bucket list and this trip lived up to my expectations.From the pick up from the hotel to being escorted onto our fast train to being met by our guide who was truly a gem and a font of knowledge to our return trip to the Taj in New Delhi the day was exceptional.So was all the behind the scenes work undertaken by the tour operator and Raj was most interactive and quick to respond to any question we had. The shops we were taken to at the end of the day were interesting and certainly ones we would not have found by ourselves. The quality of product was also high.I cannot recommend this tour more highly

The tour is really great. The only flaw is that the guide takes you to several shopping places, but that's normal in this industry.

A great day well organised. The pick up from the hotel and transfer to the train was on time. we were taken to our seats before the guide departed. At Agra we were met and escorted for the day by Manoj the guide and Sanju the driver. Manoj had a wonderful way of giving us the history of the Taj Mahal explaining the love story that led to it being built and the unhappy family events afterwards. Manoj took photos of us a we went round and showed us the finer pints of the workmanship and materials used in the construction. The factory where the marble marquetry is practiced was really interesting. The lunch in a local restaurant was very nice. Sanju, the driver, took us to each destination safely in a comfortable car. We could not stay for the end of the tour because we had a flight to catch and we had arranged with the local operator for the driver to bring us back to Delhi and then transfer us to the airport. Sanju was with us all day and drove us the three hours back to Delhi, waited while we packed and then drove us to the airport.
I would recommend this trip.

Went to Taj Mahal and Agra on the 5th of October. The whole experience from pick up at the hotel door to drop off again was truly professional thanks to the amazing organisation.

The guide and driver from hotel to train station were efficient and pleasant with extra support on getting train and seat number provided.

Special acknowledgement to Sonny who was extremely professional and who made sure everything ran smoothly. Also to the driver Hariom and our guide in Agra who was called Rocky. Together they made the experience truly interesting and memorable.
It is a long trip but it is truly worth doing.

This is an extremely professional five star service. If you are in Delhi and wish to experience the Taj Mahal and the Red Fort in Agra I would recommend this trip. Having also had experience of other trips in Delhi using Viator is worth it and is certainly value for money.

Super easy way to get the BEST experience and the most out of your day. It was a long day but it was seamless. We were kept comfortable and guided from place to place easily. We always had someone to help us navigate from door to door. Our guide and our driver were both fantastic. The van they used to transport the four of us was clean and air conditioned. We had a great lunch and ate until we were stuffed. This was the easiest and safest way to make the day trip from Delhi to Agra efficiently jam-packed with wow-moments. Thank you! 100 recommend.

I had a wonderful time touring Agra with Rocky, my personal guide. He was filled with so much information, that he had more answers then I had questions. He made it nice by doing a tour of the Taj Mahal, then look at some carpet making, before the Red Fortress and marble work before lunch. He went at my pace to allow my eyes time to wonder and take photos. Now all of this would not have been possible without a great driver as well and Raui was just that. Travel to and from were efficient and swift. I would be happy to have either or both again, if I came back to Agra.

Went to Taj Mahal, Agra fort and Fatehpur Sikri. Everything went smooth. Guide met me at the hotel and placed me in the exact seat on the train. The next guide met me as soon as I left the train in Agra. My guide for the tour, Rishi was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. My driver, Ravi, was very professional, friendly and safe. The tour exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to see this amazing city.

The first thing that stuck out was how easy the trip was. The representative was promptly at the hotel to take us to the train in a private car. After picking up our tickets and taking a quick photo, he helped us navigate the train station and took us right to our seats for a ride though the country with a little breakfast. As soon as we pulled into the station at Agra our guide Rocky was right there outside of the window waiting for us. We met our driver Sanju took another private car to a hotel to clean up and we were on our way! Taj Mahal was amazing! It was truly a marvel of architecture and Rocky was very informative. He helped us take photos and showed us some inside secrets. After the tour we were brought to some local handicraft stores where the owners happily explained how the local art has been made for hundreds of years while we watched the workers demonstrate their trade. It was a great opportunity to buy some very beautiful, high quality, and unique pieces of handmade art that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Our next stop was lunch at a local restaurant and the food was fresh, hot, and quite good. Then off to the Red Fort of Agra. We went to the gates and took some photos of this impressive structure, but decided that we were hot and tired. So we changed our plans, did some more shopping, and after saying goodbye to Rocky, took the car with the friendly and funny Sanju back to Delhi to make it an early night. They were more than happy to accommodate our change in plans and we were still completely satisfied with their service. I would recommend finishing the tour and seeing all that Agra has to offer, but I am happy nonetheless.
