10am - Visit the legendary Taj Mahal (a Unesco World Heritage Site). No trip to Agra would be complete without a visit to this shimmering vision of domes and minarets. The world's best-known tomb stands testimony to the timeless love story of the 17th century Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan, and his wife, Queen Mumtaz Mahal.

12pm - Visit the imposing Agra Fort (a Unesco World Heritage Site). Built by Emperor Akbar in 1565 A.D, this huge fort is made of red sandstone.

The maze of the courtyards, mosques & private chambers of the fort echo the story of the Mughal Empire.

5pm - Enjoy a photo tour of the Taj Mahal from Mehtab Bagh. Also known as The Moonlight Garden, Mehtab Bagh is believed to have been designed by Shah Jahan to view the Taj on moonlight nights, far away from the maddening crowd.

  • Great tour. French Speaking guide Mody was excellent and his explanations in French were very clear and interesting.Very polite and careful driver Sharma.

  • It is a full 4-hour drive from Gurgaon to Agra but our driver was right on time picking us up from the hotel and delivered us to our local guide as planned. Saurabh Gupta, our guide in Agra was very well versed in the history of the area and the Taj specifically. We had plenty of time to enjoy both the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort and our guide provided pertinent explanations at convenient vantage points all along the way. Our express admission to the Taj bypassed thousands of waiting visitors and put us into the mausoleum quickly and easily. The Agra Fort is fascinating in its own right and is also well worth the visit! The provided restaurant lunch was in a very pleasant air conditioned restaurant serving a typical Indian buffet which provided a nice respite from the heat of the day. Overall, a great experience which I would highly recommend.

  • We had a wonderful trip to Agra with our driver, and our tour guide, Seema. Seema was a fabulous guide, expertly navigating us through the sites, showing us the perfect spots for photos and giving us historical context that was interesting and thorough. We greatly enjoyed our lunch at the Taj Family Restaurant, the food was plentiful and delicious. The shopping experiences were also pleasant. We bought a little and while the shop owners would have liked if we purchased more, we didn't feel pressured. This is a must do trip and the private transportation, tour guide, food and all the sites were top notch. Highly recommended.

  • The facts:
    1. The car ride 3 hours one way from Delhi was comfortable and nice. The car was clean and air conditioned.
    2. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and spoke decent English. I learned a lot about the area and history of the Taj/Agra Fort.
    3. The lunch is a buffet of standard Indian cuisine chicken curry, naan bread, etc.
    4. Alcohol is only available at lunch
    5. Unlimited bottles of water was a bit of a stretch, we did not even have any until we got to Agra

    My recommendations/comments:
    1. Bring sunglasses. The sun reflecting off of the white marble actually destroys your corneas. If you want to be able to look at the Taj or the Palace in the Fort, bring your sunglasses.
    2. The shopping is set up like a typical tourist trap. You get to hear a small presentation about how people make marble furniture or embroidered fabric etc. and then you get chaperoned around a shop full of inventory with no price tags. In my opinion, you'd have to be pretty new to the world to think that that is the best place for fine jewelry and other arts and crafts and be willing to pay 5k for them to then ship it to your house. Please do not get fooled by this is the only place in the world where this is made or it is illegal to sell these outside of Agra. Upon a 2 second google search I found much more reputable places selling identical stuff to marble-side-table-man in Agra, India in a building/warehouse down a dirt road.
    3. The Taj is absolutely worth it. Beautiful sights, interesting history, and truly a great experience. The Agra Fort, however, way less worth it in my opinion. It's a cool place rich with history, but when your day starts at 6:30am and now it's 2pm and you're at the Fort AFTER you've already seen the Taj...you're really more interested in starting the 3 hours back to Delhi than walking around another complex hearing about the same kind of things and architecture. I do not know if there is a Taj only tour, but it may be worth your time if you, like me, are honestly just trying to see the Taj and have never heard of Fort Agra. None of your friends or family will say Oh maaan, did you see the Fort though?!? instead it will be more like What is Fort Agra?

    Bottom line:
    It was a good experience. I'm glad I took this tour. I really have no complaints, it was worth the money. I got good pictures. I learned a lot. Bring sunglasses and maybe apply a little sunscreen before you go. Professional tour guide.

  • Extremly good guide and trip

  • Awesome tour no glitches. Very smooth drive by Vipin to and from Agra in comfortable car with AC and WiFi!. Guide Rishi was very knowledgeable about the Agra fort and the Taj Mahal, and provided WiFi throughout the whole tour, too! Knew all the spots where we could take the best pictures, and took very good photos himself. Lunch included in the tour was good and plentiful, but drinks were not included, so we had to pay for our lassis and fresh lime sodas. The only thing we didn't much care for was the side shopping trips tried to skip them, but the guide was sort of insistent that we visit the shops.

  • I had a full day tour in Agra and it was amazing. The driver and the guide were extremely polite and helpful. Taj Mahal is a beautiful place but looks better when you know details about the construction and the facts about the Royal Family. Agra Fort is also incredible and big. The guide took nice pics of me and introduced me to a photographer because I wanted profissional photos in Taj Mahal. I did some shopping in Agra too and I bought nice things for my house. It really worth.

  • This tour was absolutely amazing! Our tour guide Mahesh is extremely knowledgeable about all the sites in the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. He made the long trip very rewarding for the whole family. Our driver, although I didn't get his name, went above and beyond all he was asked to do. He even waited an extra hour and a half at the hotel to drop us off at the airport! He didn't have to but he wanted to which shows just how kind-hearted he is. I really recommend this tour.

  • It was a nice and lovely experience. We have enjoyed it a lot.
