This private Taj Mahal day tour gives you the opportunity to make a pilgrimage to the Taj Mahal, India's most famous architectural wonder. On this tour, you will visit the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Mehtab Bagh.
What to Expect
Enjoy a memorable day at the Taj Mahal in this day trip from Delhi!

6:30am - Morning pick-up from your hotel in Delhi, Gurgaon or Noida or from the Delhi Airport. Then you will be driven 3 hours via the express highway to the city of Taj Mahal where your adventure begins.

9:30am - Arrive at Agra where your tour guide will be waiting for you in a hotel lobby. He will brief you on your upcoming sightseeing tour and you can use the hotel washrooms to get yourself refreshed before you start your sightseeing.

10am - Visit the legendary Taj Mahal (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). No trip to Agra would be complete without a visit to this shimmering vision of domes and minarets. The world's best-known tomb stands testimony to the timeless love story of the 17th-century Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan, and his wife, Queen Mumtaz Mahal.

12pm - Visit the imposing Agra Fort (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). Built by Emperor Akbar in 1565 A.D, this huge fort is made of red sandstone. The elegant buildings inside reflect an interesting synthesis of Hindu and Central Asian architectural styles. The maze of the courtyards, mosques and private chambers of the fort echo the story of the Mughal Empire.

1:30pm - Lunch will be provided at one of the best local air-conditioned restaurant.

3pm - Free time for shopping in Agra which is known for its fabulous handicrafts made of marble and soft stone inlay work. The Mughals were great patrons of arts and crafts. Empress Nur Jahan took personal interest in the arts and was an accomplished artist herself in zari embroidery work. Agra's major handicraft products besides inlay work are leatherware, brassware, carpets, jewellery and embroidery work.

5pm - Enjoy a photo tour of the Taj Mahal from Mehtab Bagh. Also known as The Moonlight Garden, Mehtab Bagh is believed to have been designed by Shah Jahan to view the Taj on moonlight nights, far away from the maddening crowd. The garden complex is situated on the left bank of Yamuna opposite to Taj Mahal. It is a huge square courtyard and is in straight alignment with the Taj Mahal. The forestry plantations and agricultural fields provide a green forecourt to the Taj Mahal and its reflection in Yamuna.

6pm - After a memorable day, you will be driven back to Delhi. Arrive Delhi by 9pm where you will be dropped at your hotel or airport.
