TAJ MAHAL DAY TOUR

Private, Guided All - Inclusive Tour

Best-selling personalized Same Day Tour Taj Mahal Agra from Delhi by car designed for quick visit to two World Heritage Monuments (UNESCO) – Taj Mahal & Fort located in Agra. Step back in time and discover the glory of the Mughal Empire of India on this private day trip to Agra from Delhi. See ancient architecture significant to India’s history such as Agra Fort, a 16th-century Mughal monument and of course, a visit to this country is not complete without a tour of the Taj Mahal, one of the most recognized symbols of India. Your own private guide will ensure that you get an in-depth experience of these emblematic structures.

Private pickup will take approximately four hours to reach Agra from Delhi. Stop first at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Agra Fort, a treasure house of Mughal architecture. This 94-acre (34-hectare) brick fort dates back to 1080 AD and has seen many battles and undergone major renovations. Witness the interesting fusion of Hindu and Islamic influences on its construction and decor as you walk inside the fort with your guide and learn about the different functions of the  many buildings inside.

Head to the Taj-Mahal, India’s most iconic building and a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site. Spanning an area of about 1,000 acres (400 hectares), this majestic architectural wonder offers incredible sights. On your guided tour, admire the structure’s magnificent construction, the intricate exterior and interior decor, the beautiful garden and the outlying red-sandstone buildings. Its most predominant structure, the white-domed marble mausoleum, was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, and combines Persian, Turkish and Indian architectural styles.

We booked Travel Genes for Taj Mahal in a day tour after a recommendation from my uncle and it was an excellent experience from start to finish. Our driver was waiting for us at the airport and he looked after us from then until he dropped us back to the hotel that evening. I unfortunately broke my leg few days back to our holiday and was on crutches and our driver was excellent dropping us as close to each site as possible and explained clearly to us where he would pick us yet allowing us as much time as we wanted at each site. He brought us to a genuine Indian restaurant - food was excellent and tasty! I can't recommend Travel Genes highly enough and have recommended them to family and friends thinking about visiting India.

TOUR DETAILS

Early morning 6:00 am pick up from your hotel in New Delhi / Gurgaon by air-conditioned cab for the morning 4 hours approximately drive to Agra via Taj Express Highway. Have some packed breakfast ready to eat during the drive to Agra as there are not many good and hygienic places to eat midway.

Meet your local English-speaking Government Approved Tour guide who will explore for you the wonders of Taj Mahal & Agra Fort.

Start exploring Taj Mahal along with valuable insights about the Indian history & culture from your very experienced guide who will make sure that Taj continues to mesmerize you long after your visit. Have your fabulous photographs taken on the “Diana’s Bench”, where Princess Diana once sat and don’t forget to hear from your guide what Ex-President Bill Clinton said about Taj Mahal on his visit.

Spend some quality private time during the tour with the love of your life to sit and just feel the love which surrounds this building. After all, this monument is the main reason you came to India.

Choice of traditional Indian / Continental / Chinese Food in multi-cuisine air-conditioned restaurant. We won’t be taking you to expensive touristy restaurants (usually mentioned in the guide books) which serve only a taste-less, overpriced imitation of authentic Indian food. Instead we will be going to places where locals eat… Rest assured, all the restaurants we select are safe, hygienic and highly recommended on Trip Advisor & frequented by Agra locals.

Just after lunch start exploring one of the finest Mughal forts in India: The Agra Fort; which is also a World Heritage Site declared by UNESCO. Though some part of Agra Fort is under the control of Indian Army and not open for tourists to explore but whatever is open is worth the visit alone. No wonder tourist skip the Delhi Fort to see the Agra Fort.

Spend the rest of your time in Agra at your leisure… either stroll in the local markets for some souvenirs or sip a coffee at one of the many cafés. And last but not the least, do meet us personally for an honest feedback of your day tour and your suggestions, if any. We love to hear people’s travel stories. They inspire us, but more importantly, they also inspire the readers. While we have been lucky to travel to many places, we are sure you have a unique story or experience we have yet to encounter and we would love to hear all about it. Later in the evening, drive back to Delhi for your drop at your hotel or Airport for your onward journey.
