Description

Visit the three jewels of India’s Mughal Empire on this trip to Agra and Fatehpur Sikri from Delhi.

You will learn the tragic story behind the Taj Mahal as you explore, and visit the 16th-century Agra Fort, where Emperor Shah Jahan, who commissioned the Taj Mahal, spent his last days.

You will also see the tomb of Itmad-ud Daullah and end the tour by visiting Fatehpur Sikri.

Highlights
  • Insights into the history of Taj Mahal, a UNESCO World Heritage and one of the 7 Wonders of the World
  • Tour Itinerary from Agra expand_more
    • Depart from your central Delhi hotel in the early morning by private, air-conditioned vehicle to begin your journey to Agra. 

    • Along the way, chat to your private driver and gaze out over India’s passing landscapes and villages.

    • After roughly three hours, arrive in bustling Agra, the home of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Taj Mahal. Get tantalizing glimpses of this incredible 17th-century building as you approach. 

    • On arrival, meet your local guide and head inside the grounds of the monument. Walk through the domed gateway, and marvel at the exquisite white marble Taj. Commissioned by the Emperor Shah Jahan in 1632 as a mausoleum for his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, this majestic tomb looks mirage-like from a distance.

    • Stroll around the gardens, terrace and interior as you learn fascinating facts about its construction and symmetrical design. Hear the tragic love story behind the building.

    • Head for lunch(own expense) at a local restaurant, after which, visit another UNESCO-protected treasure - Agra Fort. Explore the halls of this 16th-century fort, and learn how Shah Jahan was imprisoned and died here in a tower that looked out over the Taj. 

    • Wrap up your Agra visit at another Mughal masterpiece, the Tomb of Itmad-ud Daullah, and then start your return journey to Delhi. 

    • On route, make the last stop to see Fatehpur Sikri, the deserted 16th-century capital of the Mughal Empire. As you walk around the complex and adjoining Jama Masjid mosque and Victory Gate (Buland Darwaza), learn how Fatehpur was built in 1539 and then abandoned just a decade later.

    It was indeed a most joyful moment. I thank Zui Travels for their professional touch. The guide Mr. Amit was very good. We look forward to receiving your service again and again. 

  • Robert

    Very happy I used this service for a ride from Delhi to Agra. Like our driver Kishore so much we used him again to go from Agra to Jaipur to Ranthambore. He stuck around to make sure we got to our safari correctly, which we definitely would have missed otherwise.  Very friendly and knowledgeable. 

  • Jennifer

    I could not be happier with Zui travel in Agra, India! Amazing people to work with, top notch driver and guide and incredibly detail oriented. And to top it off very reasonably priced, especially for such impeccable service! 

    A must use company, if your travels take you to Agra!

    I am grateful to the entire team of Zui Travel. They have done a fabulous job. Too much professionalism, great service.

    The driver Mr. Dhiraj knew his job well. His excellent driving made us feel safe and comfortable. The car was is great condition.

    I took a guided tour in Lucknow with Zui  and was excellent. Always taking care of myself and my group, the guide was knowledgeable and had good Spanish and was giving good advices for all. The price and quality relation was very good. I hope to have Zui's service for next times to India. Fully recommended. 

  • Xavier

    Thank you for the excellent tour of Agra and Delhi that you organized for us on 24 /25 Feb 2019. Your guides Sherwin and Amit were very professional. Mr Amit made sure that we got to the Taj on time in spite of the car being late. All in all not a minute wasted in queues. Your guides whisked us through while other foreigners were stuck. Very good work, Mr. Khan and team! 

  • Joon Hyeong

    We had visited 5 cities in India; Mumbai, Jaipur, Varanasi, Agra, and Delhi. Everything was perfrect from the airport pick-up to sending-out to the airport.  All the guides were all good, kind and very punctual.  

    I do appreciate again here for the warm, special and great care by Zui Travel.  All of my family were very happy.  

  • Kam

    Brilliant from start to finish. On time, good communication from company, driver and guide.

    A guided tour of the Taj Mahal brought everything to life. Thank-you Amit for a great day!

  • Achal

    My wife and I had the pleasure of booking a day trip to Taj Mahal. We were initially a bit sceptical about booking online, but did it anyway. We are pleased with the service we received. The communication from Zui Travels (Hina) was prompt and efficient. The gentleman who picked us up (Suraj) was humble and kind. Amit, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and is an asset to the team.

    Thank you,

    Kind regards,

    Achal

    The trip from Delhi was the highlight of my visit to india, with dustiguished guide and polite driver. flexability.

  • Julia

    I was travelling solo through India in Decemeber and couldn't leave without visiting the Taj Mahal.

    I booked the trip and was very impressed with the service right from the first meeting with the Driver. He was very professional, clean and I felt safe. We stopped for a coffee and a bight to eat during our three hour drive and then continued onto when we would meet our tour guide.

    I really enjoyed spending time with the tour guide (apologies I cannot remember his name). He was very insightful and had a wealth of knowledge to share. Even took on the role as a photographer so I would catch some nice snaps whilst walking around.

    Overall I had a wonderful time and would recommend highly to anyone.

    .

    We had a great experience visiting Taj Mahal, it couldn't be possible without Zui Travels, the car was very punctual at our hotel ( 6am) to pick us up, a brief coffee stop , needed, in our way and arrived Agra in about 3 hrs.

    We were received by out guide, a great person, fluent in english and best of all with a lot of knowledge, his explanations made us understand more the Hindu culture, not only the Taj Mahal.

    Abdhesh, had us enter to the Taj quickly, he gave us a very good explantion about the place, the family, the conflicts among them, etc., everything very clear.

    Also he knew good spots to take pictures so we we did and he also took some pictures from my wife and I

    At the Taj, he showed us the marbeled used, the precious stones inserted, very interesting.

    After the visit we moved to the Fort by Tuktuk in no time.

    The visit to the Fort as good as the Taj, everything very well explained.

    After the each visit we had time to spend by ourselves to take photos and to feel the atmosphere.

    Great experience!

    On our way back, we stopped for a few minutes at the office, manager was very nice and asked us if everything was fine, no complaints

    We stoped at a restaurant recommended by Abdhesh, good food, veru affordable prices.

    Car took us back home.

    PS. We hired the tour through the internet,  it was really easy, the company kept in conact with us constantly and provided the name of the driver and the car make and the plate number.
