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.
Your day trip then ends with a hotel drop-off back in Delhi.
