Know More about this tour
Prepare for a full-day of Indian adventure with an early-morning departure to Agra. Youll meet your driver at 7am sharp at United Coffee House, Connaught Place. From there, well head to Agra, home to one of the seven wonders of the world. The drive will take about 3 to 4 hours, so come prepared for a long-haul excursion!
Situated at the banks of the Yamuna river, Agra can be a very chaotic city, but the moment you see the impressive buildings and the iconic monuments, you will be swept off your feet. Though its a very old city, Agra reached its zenith during the Mughal reign. It was Mughals who dotted the skyline with the finest monuments architects could design: the Taj Mahal of Shah Jahan, Agra Fort of Akbar, and Itmad-Ud-Daulah and neighbouring Sikandra are but a few of the many city sites.
Once we reach Agra, our first stop will be Agra Fort, a walled city thats also a UNESCO World Heritage site. It was built by Emperor Akbar during the 1500s, and the architecture is a blend of both Hindu and Muslim design. Youll also learn the history behind the emperors of the Mughal dynasty, with lots of stories from your passionate local guide.
After you have your fill of history, well head to a local restaurant, where you can order up some lunch to fuel you for the second half of our day.
After weve enjoyed our lunch break, well head to the famous, glorious Taj Mahal. Built by Shah Jahan for his beloved wife, the Taj Mahal is a world-renowned symbol of love. Your guide will take you around the Taj and share the stories of love and legends behind the great effort it took to build this legendary monument.
Your Agra day tour will end with a drive back to Delhi (feel free to nap after all that exploring!). Well finish up where we started, at the United Coffee House, where your local guide can assist with arranging a taxi back to your accommodation.
