Full description

Discover the beauty and history of Agra on this day trip from Delhi. Travel on a comfortable train and be met by a private guide and car. Visit top sights like the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, and Baby Taj. Enjoy a delicious breakfast and hearty supper during your tour.

Get picked up from the airport or your hotel in the Delhi NCR area, before being taken to the Nizamuddin railway station. Sit back and relax on the 90-minute air-conditioned train journey with a tasty complimentary breakfast. 

Arrive at the Agra Cantt railway station and be met by your private guide who will be waiting with a sign bearing your name. Drive to the Taj Mahal, one of the 7 wonders of the world.

Admire the beauty of the Taj Mahal, and learn about the remarkable story of how and why it was built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as a memorial for his beloved wife, Mumtaz. Have assistance with taking photos at the best angles from your guide. Head to the nearby Agra Fort, which is another UNESCO World Heritage Site. Tour this facinating sandstone fortress before having some free time to purchase a nice lunch.

Continue to Baby Taj, the first Mughal structure built completely from marble. The monument makes extensive use of Pietra Dura ( stone inlay technique), and sits magnificently on the Yamuna River, making for excellent views. Begin your return journey back at the Agra Cantt Railway station. Hop aboard the train to Delhi and savor a hot supper on the train. Upon arrival in Delhi, be transferred back to your desired location in the city by private car.

Both drivers, Sanjay in Agra and Aman in Delhi were really great. They picked me up and made sure I was on the train. I was worried about all the transition, from the hotel to the train to the guide, but they really did a great job and everything went really smoothly. Danish, my guide was really amazing. I got a ton of great pictures which is harder when for a solo traveler and he was really knowledgeable about everything. Most of all he really made me feel comfortable, I would recommend this tour and ask for Danish :)

I ordered a trip from Delhi to Agra from Poland. Upon arrival, I received confirmation that everything is up to date. On the agreed day, the driver came to pick us up and took us to the station. He even helped to find the right car ... Air-conditioned train, they serve breakfast ... but most importantly, it only takes about 1.5 hours to reach Agra! In Agra, our driver and our guide Owais were waiting for us. They took us to the Taj Mahal where we would be around 2 hours. Owais is very kind, helpful and professional. He is very knowledgeable and talks interestingly. He comes from Agra so you can learn a lot of interesting information. We were later in Agra Fort ... also a very interesting place ... later shopping and having a delicious dinner in a restaurant. After the tour, they took us to the train station. The driver waited until the end of the train to leave and another driver was waiting in Delhi who took us to the hotel. Overall, I highly recommend this trip. It saves several hour

The experience was great, Vishal was a great guide and thoroughly explained everything in the trip. The whole experience was much easier than expected, we felt very welcomed and safe throughout the entire trip. The food was also in a great place, and was a great bang for the buck. Overall, the experience was great, we had a mini van and everything was comfortable throughout the trip. Definitely recommended.
