Know More about this tour

If you are an early bird, you should never miss Taj Mahal at sunrise. We will pick you up at your preferable location in Agra before 5:30am and simply marvel at the spectacular Taj Mahal. Take your time to admire the majestic architecture of Taj Mahal - a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most famous and beautiful buildings in the world. Our professional local guide will reveal all the mysteries of Taj Mahal and its architecture. Even if you have read about it or seen the photos, experiencing Taj Mahal at sunrise in person will always take your breath away.

If you prefer later departure time, we will pick you up at your preferable time and location and also start the journey at Taj Mahal. Later on we will visit the nearby Agra Fort that is an amazing building and UNESCO World Heritage Site. This fort in red also features impressive architecture and beautiful pavilions. Our guide will explain to you about all the beautiful palaces inside Agra Fort as well its origin and the history.

After Agra Fort, we will visit Baby Taj Mahal - Etmad Ud Daulla's Tomb. The tomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah is also an architectural marvel that is situated on the bank of Yamuna. People also refer it as mini Taj Mahal because it is similar to Minars, the stone work called pietra dura and lattice work. Our Guide will explain its fascinating history and exquisite carving work and architecture.

Take a lunch break. After lunch explore Agra art and crafts. Agra has always been known for its leather products and its handicraft variation. In addition to the exclusive products from Agra, you will also be introduced to paintings, pottery, handicrafts and other artist works from different parts of the country.

Around 4pm, visit the tomb of Emperor Akbaand and learn more about this greatest Emperor in India history. The last stop is Mehtab Bagh (Moonlight Garden ) for a romantic view of Taj Mahal at sunset. Mahtab Bagh is located across the river Yamuna from Taj Mahal and considered a perfect place to view Taj Mahal without the jostling crowds. You can actually sit in peace and admire the beauty of the monument at sunset. In the meantime, your guide will explain the history of this beautiful garden.

  • 2 days into our holiday and we had to set the alarm for 04.45, it was tough, but well worth it :) !
    Sameer arrived right on time, we got into a spotless air conditioned car and off we went to the Taj Mahal. Sameer was very knowledgeable, and told us the story of the Taj Mahal, why it was there, who was there, the woes before and even information about how it was built!
    After getting to the Taj Mahal and seeing it by sunrise and having a good tour, the crowds were descending so we were popped back to our hotel for breakfast!
    We were collected again, and off we went to see the red fort, via a shop that produces beautiful pieces of inlaid marble.
    Again, Sameer told us the story of the fort, and who lived here. It's worth noting that I'm not very stable on my feet, and underfoot can be a little uneven, but Sameer took his time, let me go at my pace.
    We went on to visit the 'baby taj' and the moonlight gardens. We could have done this at sunset, but decided against it as the weather is quite hazy at the time of year we went, and I'm so glad! The gardens are beautiful, serene and peaceful. they should be visited for this, and not simply because you can see the Taj Mahal from across the river. Had we have gone to see the Taj at sunset I think some of the gardens own qualities would have been missed!
    We had a delicious lunch, typically a thali at a local restaurant, but it was delicious and as Sameer lunch with us, we got to chat with him and learn a little about him which was lovely.

    The next time we come to this part of India, we'll definitely be calling on the services of Kaimur Holidays!

  • decisamente no! non lo consiglio. la guida è stata tutto il giorno con il telefono a chiamare i suoi amici o parenti e soprattutto aveva fretta di tornare a casa. Il tutto è iniziato verso le ore 8 per poi finire per le 12 quando mi hanno accompagnato al mio hotel e poi alle 15 sono venuti a prendermi per finire il giro turistico che alle 18.24 si è concluso. Non vale i soldi spesi! meglio prendere un tuc tuc e dare all'autista 20 euro che ti porta per tutta la città e ti aspetta

  • I have vacationed both with and without tour companies and I must say this has been my favoirite to far. It was the best of both worlds because Kaimur Holidays took care of everything to MY desires. I bought the set sunrise sunset of the Taj group of sights and got to see everything without any waiting in queues or trying to figure out protocols. Samir was fabulous at making sure I didnt worry about anything. This brought me a lot of comfort as a solo woman traveller who only had a few days to see the sights. Samir took amazing pictures and even paid for some things for me when I couldnt get to the ATM I paid him back of course. Then most importantly even though I just bought the Agra day tour I ended up turning it into two days and getting to see Sikri and being picked up and dropped off in Delfi for an EXCELLENT price. They know where to find everything and are very knowledgeable. The food places they take you to are safe according to my still functioning GI system and well rated. My driver Gurmeet was VERY kind, and an excellent driver safe which is hard to be in India, and very timely. He was usually waiting for me to get ready and I never waited for him to arrive. They even sent him my picture so he knew to look for me. If I ever return to India, which I plan to, I will definitely look them up again and have already been telling my friends about them. I really wanted to insights on the Moghul dynasty and architecture and the Agra Fort, and the 'Baby Taj' and the Taj itself along with Sikri are EXCELLENT ways to feel the legacy of the dynasty. I also requested of the company via whatsapp and was able to see the show at the convention center Kalakrit and Samir set that up for me in less than 4 hours. Nothing was missed. My photos were fantastic with just my cell phone. I was telling them they should invest in a nice camera and they could probably add 'pro photographer' to the list of things they offer. It was great to have an affordable few days with this company and I definitely recommend them.

  • We booked this tour based on the reviews on Viator and were not disappointed. The tour is a great overview of the Taj Mahal and the three other main attractions Red Fort, Baby Taj and Mehtab Bagh/Moonlight Garden. We chose a 5.30am pick up to visit the Taj Mahal at sunrise and were glad to be on a tour. When you are barely awake, it is great to be taken care of buying tickets, standing in the right queue etc. so you can focus on enjoying the site. Our guide was very informative and happily took photos of us on our camera throughout the day. All pick ups were on time. We asked to stop to buy a take away breakfast before heading back to our hotel and the food was very nice. We visited a workshop / shop where we could see how the marble inlay technique is performed, as used in the decorations of the Taj Mahal. The explanations were very interesting. Naturally, we were shown many products for sale, with some sales pressure to buy, but no more than any elsewhere, and we left without buying. We had the option of visiting other shops and markets, but declined as we were not interested. My recommendation to future travellers is to feel free to take your time to take photos and explore further. There is plenty of time in the day to spend as long as you wish to take photos, for example. The guide will wait for you without a problem. Overall, we had a great day and were very happy with our tour.

  • Samir was brilliant. The cab driver was late for our pickup, but Samir assured us correctly that we would enter the Taj Mahal before sunrise and we did.

    His knowledge is off the chart. Best trip so far!

  • We did not know what to expect about the tour, but since we touched down Delhi, all was taken care of as our driver picked us up and the journey to Agra started. Our tour guide explained everything very well, answered our questions and knew the places to get nice pictures. It was like a story and we were mesmerised. The driver was also very helpful and every time we got into the car, a cold bottle of water was ready. The place they brought us for lunch was very good too. All in all, we can say that the experience of the Taj Mahal with the guiding of the tour was a magical experience.

  • The company providing the tour is apparently a young company. Unfortunately I don't have much advice to give them since everything was perfect. Excellent communication before the tour and the day before just to confirm everything, via WhatsApp. The tour guide was really nice and very knowledgeable. The driver also really friendly and relax with his driving style. The car was nice and in an excellent condition. They are very flexible and can tailor the schedule according to your wishes. They also have the option to drive you back and forth from Delhi. In the morning of the tour, I decided to go back to Delhi airport by car in the same afternoon. They had no problem arranging it. The experience was excellent. That tour allows you to truly enjoy the place and what you see. Highly recommended.

  • I rarely give a perfect score in a review but I've gotta hand it to Shanoo, Astif, and Suneel at Kaimur Holidays. They took wonderful care of me which was especially important since I was touring alone. Their personalized service and attention to detail every step of the way was superb even when I booked the wrong tour at first Shanoo still accommodated above and beyond. Astif my guide was outstanding. He was such a joy to be with for the entire day. His knowledge of the culture and the history was amazing. I was so very pleased. It all began with the driver Suneel be on time, courteous an attentive. Not only that but I got a personal visit and gift from Shanoo the power while at lunch looking to make sure my needs were being met. I was thoroughly impressed. Being the stickler for quality customer service as I am, I would HIGHLY recommend Kaimur Holidays to everyone and will use them again upon my return.

    Thank you so much for making my trip quite memorable,
    Michelle

  • The BEST way to see the Taj! Jitendra Jitu,was an excellent guide - very knowledgeable! While a long day, he was able to make it flow very easily! He's also a GREAT photographer - no need to hire one of the local guys buzzing around, He took incredible pictures of us with our camera!! As with any tour, there are always stops at certain kinds of shops - and he was able to cater to our needs and budget! While the Red Fort and the other locations were awesome, seeing the Taj again at sunset was the highlight of our trip! I can't say enough great things to say about this tour!! Incredibly happy and a GREAT value!
