Full description

Prepare for a full day in Agra City, a city of love (the Taj Mahal), history (Agra Fort), and amazing local bazaars with traditional food. Your driver and guide will meet you at your requested location in Agra, from where you will set off for your adventure in a private vehicle. Your guide for the day will begin by briefing you on what your day will be like. They will also provide you with all the information of what you need to bring with you, as well as what is not permitted inside the monuments. Depending on the weather conditions, you will first move to the Taj Mahal, where you will have plenty of time for amazing pictures throughout your memorable visit. You will then be taken for a traditional lunch, containing Indian herbs and spices (both vegetarian and non-vegetarian) in a western standard restaurant. Following lunch, enjoy the local arts and crafts, seeing the traditional art work of Mughals. You will also learn how the Taj Mahal was built, as well as how they decorated the Taj Mahal in the past. Following that, you will be taken to Agra fort: the big and beautiful fort of Mughals. Once there, discover the spot from where the king used to admire the Taj Mahal from Agra Fort, overlooking the River Yamuna. After your Agra Fort visit, you will be taken to Fatehpur Sikri, a town which is about 40 kilometers from Agra (optional). At the conclusion of your tour, your guide will check with you if you wish to see anything else, before they drop you off to your requested location in Agra,

Had such a good tour to the Taj Mahal and the Red Fort! My tour guide Majid was great. As a women on my own, I felt safe. Majid knew all the best spots for photo opportunities and acted as a photographer as well as guide. I would definitely recommend going earlier for sunrise. The views of the Taj Mahal are incredible. It’s also less crowded and not too hot.

It is incredible, spectacular, it was my 7 of 7 Wonders of the world and I loved it, in Yes the tour is very good, only the road inside Agra is not, but that is not the fault of the driver or the guide. Our Guide Rahman is very good, very attentive and very patient.

We had about 6 hours to see Agra, so time was important for us. The driver and our guide Ali met us at the station when we arrived. The activity did not include entry tickets but as a special request to save time Ali bought the tickets to enter Agra and we paid him separately. Ali showed Taj and Agra fort narrating the history very well and also explained local culture. The car provided was very clean and comfortable. Both our driver and guide Ali were very courteous, flexible and professional and dropped us off at the train station in time for us to catch the train in the afternoon to Jaipur. Highly recommend!!
