1. Agra Overnight Tour with Mathura & Village Experience
Day 1 As one of the 7 Wonders of the Word and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Taj Mahal is one must-see monument in India. Departing from Delhi by car, accompanied by your tour guide we will stop along the way in a village where we will enjoy some chai with a local family. We’ll then arrive in Agra in time for lunch at the accommodation (homestay with local family) where we will spend the night. With this overnight stay in Agra, you will have the chance to admire the Taj Mahal either at sunset or sunrise. Most people do this at sunrise the next day so the first afternoon is normally spent walking around the impressive Agra Fort. You can visit Mehtab Bagh, a small 22 acre Persian-style garden located next to the Yamuna river, offering a very unique view of the Taj Mahal at sunset. There is also the option to visit the tomb of Itimād-ud-Daulah (“Baby Taj Mahal”) Day 2 The next morning, we will have the opportunity to visit the Taj Mahal for sunrise or the Agra Fort (depending on your choice) and we then make our way to Mathura (the birthplace of Hindu god Krishna) and Vrindavan. In Mathura, we will take a boat ride on the Yamuna River and visit various ghats before returning to Delhi.
