delhi to agra

  • At 2:30am in the morning, you'll be picked up from Airport or anywhere in Delhi and taken on a 3-hour drive to Agra via the Yamuna Express Highway. 

  • Arrive in Agra and your tour guide will meet you at the hotel lobby from where you'll continue for sightseeing. 

  • Leave for the sunrise tour of the world-famous – Taj Mahal (A UNESCO World Heritage Site). This white-marble world wonder was built by a great emperor Shahjahan in memory of his beloved Mumtaaz. (Note: that the Taj Mahal is closed every Friday.)

  • After Taj Mahal, stop for a buffet breakfast at a hotel.

  • After breakfast, you'll go to the imposing Agra Fort. This huge fort is made from red sandstones (A UNESCO World Heritage Site) and built by Emperor Akbar in 1565 A.D. 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. 

  • After sightseeing, you may wish to enjoy 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 and was an accomplished artist herself in zari embroidery work. Agra's major handicraft products besides inlay work are: leatherware, brassware, carpets, jewelry and embroidery work. 

  • Enjoy a lunch break at the best, local restaurant (at your own expense).
