4. Agra: Private Full-Day Tour to Taj Mahal and Agra Fort
Start the day with a pickup from your hotel at 5:30 AM by a private air-conditioned vehicle. Along with your driver and guide for the day, depart for India's most famous UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Taj Mahal. Discover the mausoleum that was built in the 17th century by Emperor Shah Jahan for his beloved wife and took 22 years to complete.
Explore one of the New7Wonders of the World and surely the most extravagant expression of love ever created. Enjoy the most alluring view of the Taj Mahal in the relative quiet of early morning when it is shrouded in mist and bathed with a soft morning glow. As the sun continues to rise, witness the magical effects caused by the reflections and the color changes from soft grey and yellow to pearly cream and dazzling white.
After experiencing the Taj Mahal sunrise, you will be taken back to your hotel or your desired place for breakfast. Afterwards, start your tour again by visiting the nearby Agra Fort, another majestic creation by the Mughal Emperor Akbar the Great. Next, drive to the Tomb of Etmaduddaula, a Mughal mausoleum in the city of Agra often described as a "jewel box" and regarded as a draft of the Taj Mahal. If you wish to take a break for lunch, your guide will happily suggest somewhere for you to eat, or you can proceed to the next point of interest.
The last stop is Mehtab Bagh (Moonlight Garden) where you can take in an incredible romantic view of the Taj Mahal at sunset. The garden was built on the banks of Yamuna River as an integral part of the Taj complex and is perfectly aligned with the gardens of the Taj Mahal. You can actually sit in peace and admire the beauty of the monument before the end of the tour when you’ll be dropped off back at your hotel or any desired place in Agra city.
