Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at hotel lobby in Agra at 8.45 am and leave to Taj Mahal, India’s most iconic building and a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site. Your guide will point out the renowned Mughal architecture, a design that combines elements from Persian, Turkish and Indian styles until 11.00am.

Step back into your private vehicle for a drive to the Agra Fort, a treasure house of Mughal architecture. The great Mughal Emperor Akbar commissioned the construction of the Agra Fort in 1666, A.D. although additions were made till the time of his grandson Shahjahan. The forbidding exteriors of this fort hide an inner paradise. Inside Agra Fort, view the remarkable palaces, Diwan-I-Am, Diwan-I-Khaas, Musamman Burj where Shahjahan died in 1666 A.D. Jahangir's Palace Khaas Mahal and Shish Mahal until 12.30 noon.

After lunch at 1.30 on your own  proceed to Tomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah located on the opposite bank of the Yamuna from the Taj Mahal and commonly known as the Baby Taj. Built between 1622 and 1628 by Empress Nur Jahan for her father, the mausoleum is often described as a jewel box. Admire the trellis work and precious stone inlay as you listen to your guide’s commentary and learn about the strong Persian influence on the tomb’s design—the first in India entirely made out of marble.

Then drive to Fatehpur Sikri at 2.30 pm (39 Km), an epic architecture made of red sandstone. A city of yesteryear, today lost in the mists of time. Fatehpur Sikri was built by the Mughal Emperor Akbar during 1572-1585 A.D. A sonless Akbar had gone to Sikri to seek blessings of a Muslim Saint Sheikh Salim Chishti and he was blessed with a son. To express his gratitude, he constructed his capital city and named it Fatehpur Sikri. Your Guide will show the beautiful marble tomb of Sheikh Salim Chisti and other renowned places Diwan-I-Am, diwan-I-Khaas, Buland Darwaza, Panch Mahal, Jodha Bai's Palace and Birbal Bhavan.

At the end of your journey at 5.30 pm , sit back and relax on the drive back to your Hotel in Agra.
