Full description
Tour the city of Agra and its main attractions with your own private tour guide. Wake up early for a 6:30 AM pickup from your hotel in Delhi, Gurugram, or Noida, and drive the 3 hours to Agra city by air-conditioned car. On arrival, you’ll meet your private tour guide and head to the Taj Mahal, a magnificent mausoleum built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan for his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Spend around 2 hours exploring this 42-acre complex that is perhaps one of the best-known UNESCO World Heritage Sites.   At around 11:30 AM, you’ll visit Agra Fort, built by Mughal Emperor Akbar. Spend an hour in this walled city and admire its beautiful walls, gates, and white marble inlays.   After lunch, you’ll take a 1.5-hour city tour of Old Agra by rickshaw, during which you’ll see the Jama Masjid (one of the largest mosques in India) and the local markets. Stop to watch a traditional live music show played on various traditional instruments, like the table, sitar, and harmonium.   Head back to your city at 5:00 PM for an approximately 8:00 PM arrival.

The structure and architecture of Taj Mahal was phenomenal! We have never experienced anything like this ever before in our life. Out tour guide, Ricky was having a great knowledge about the history of the Taj Mahal and the daily lives of the people who maintained it. We absolutely loved our time here in India!. I recommend this tour to all who are interested in visiting India .

Una experiencia buenísima!!! Amir es un guía genial, habla muy bien el español y hace que hasta una persona con problemas de falta de atención como yo se entere de la historia. Una pena que la policía nos estropeó la segunda parte del día por el mercado y la ruta en bici, aún así, me fui muy contento.
