Full description
Start with pickup by private vehicle from New Delhi between 2:00 AM and 3:00 AM. Travel for 3-4 hours to reach the city of Agra. Meet your guide at the Taj Mahal, who will escort you throughout the day. Discover this world-renowned structure in the early-morning, away from the heat and crowds of the daytime. Admire the stunning sight of the sun's rays illuminating the ivory-colored mausoleum. Learn about the construction of the site from your guide, and enjoy as much time as you want at the site.

After discovering the Taj Mahal, you can choose to go for breakfast or you can continue with your sightseeing. The next stop is Agra Fort, which is one of the most beautiful and forts of the Mughal Empire. Known for its striking red color, this fort was the main residence for the emperors of the Mughal Dynasty.

Enjoy a break for lunch, at your own expense. Your guide can provide plenty of recommendations depending on your preferences. After lunch, visit the Tomb of I'timād-ud-Daulahj, which is more commonly known as the "Jewel Box" or the "Baby Taj." Explore this masterpiece of the domeless class of Mughal tombs. Discover its beautiful interior of polychrome ornamentation and mosaics.

Finally, visit Akbar’s Tomb, built with rich red sandstone and white marble. Wander through the large gardens that surround the tomb, and see if you can spot a gibbon or deer who can be found roaming the grounds. After some time here, travel back to New Delhi, arriving back in the city in the late evening.
