HIGHLIGHTS
  • Visit two of India's UNESCO World Heritagelisted sites: the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort
  • Explore the huge expanse of the Agra Fort and learn about its Mughal architecture
  • Get an indepth tour of the iconic Taj Mahal and the Tomb of ItmadudDaulah (Baby Taj)
  • Enjoy a traditional Indian lunch at a popular restaurant
After pickup in Delhi by private vehicle, your day trip begins with the approximate 4-hour drive to Agra, a city located on the Yamuna River. Your first stop is Agra Fort, a World Heritage site and Mughal architectural wonder. With your private guide, enter the 94-acre (34-hectare) brick fort, noting the mix of Islamic and Hindu influences in its design. Hear about the purposes of the various buildings such as the Hall of Private Audience (Diwan-i-Khas), Pearl Fort (Moti Masjid), Mirror Palace (Sheesh Mahal) and Hall of Public Audience (Diwan-i-Am). Next, enjoy a lunch of Indian dishes at a local restaurant before continuing your tour to your second World Heritage site and perhaps India’s most iconic landmark, the Taj Mahal. Built in the mid-1600s, this white marble mausoleum was commissioned by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in dedication to his wife. Learn about the Turkish, Indian and Persian architectural styles as you admire the detailed interior and exterior décor, the beautiful garden and the general magnificence of the place with your guide. Then head to your last attraction, the Tomb of Itmad-ud-Daulah, another mausoleum sometimes referred to as the Baby Taj, as it was one inspiration for the Taj Mahal and sits just across the river from it. Learn from your guide about the Persian influences behind the design of the tomb as you admire its stone inlay and trellis work. Your day trip then ends with the return drive to Delhi.

“Driver arrived on time at my hotel, we took one pit-stop on the way there for breakfast/snacks as needed then continued. We picked up the tour guide in Agra and he was very energetic and informative. He knew his way around each site, and was also great at taking nice photos (helpful when you travel alone!). Overall I was very pleased.”
Great tour but got sick.

“Tour was great but got very severe food poisoning from the restaurant where we had our lunch. We were sick for 5 days and it caused us to miss our flight back.”

“We travelled from Goa to New Delhi to take advantage of this trip, the service we received from the point of booking was professional, with prompt reply and service. Our trip went without issue, with prompt pickup from our hotel in Delhi, we were a party of 5 and travelled the 4hr journey to Agra in a comfortable air conditioning minibus with reclining seats and foot rest and a patient carful driver.

Once we arrived in Agra we picked up our excellent English speaking guide Amit who shared this knowledge with enthusiasm and professionalism. Being on a guided tour such as this gives you the opportunity to fast track through into the Taj and avoid all the queues. Amit was our photographer as well capturing life long memories of this beautiful place from all the best angles and places.

Our visit to the fort and baby Taj was equally well planned and executed. The buffet lunch served in the beautiful, clean, restaurant was of a high standard with plenty of choice. I would defiantly recommend this tour for its exceptional service and value for money.”

“Bobby of Golden Taj was excellent, with a Masters in Medieval Indian History, he made the daily life of Mughal times come alive. I could visualize the market scene, the Aga imprisoned by his own son, etc.”
