Inclusions
Day 1

Delhi - Agra. This morning drive to Agra (approximately 4-5 hours) and enjoy a sightseeing tour of the city in the afternoon, stopping en route to visit Sikandra. We head to Agra Fort for a short visit. Behind its colossal walls are some of the finest Mughal buildings in India.

Construction of the fort commenced during the reign of Emperor Akbar and additions continued to be made until the rule of his grandson Shah Jahan. During Akbar’s time, it was primarily a military fort though later the focus shifted and it partially became a palace. After our touring, you’ll have time to relax back at the hotel.
Overnight: Agra

Day 2

Enjoy a memorable visit to the Taj Mahal at sunrise. Described as the most extravagant monument ever built for love, this fine example of Mughal architecture was built by Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved second wife-Mumtaz Mahal, who died tragically during childbirth. Built entirely of white marble, construction began in 1631, the year in which Mumtaz died, and was not completed until 1653. A staggering total of 20,000 workers contributed their skills, in the construction of this unique mausoleum.

After exploring the legendary Taj Mahal, drive to the deserted city of Fatehpur Sikri. The deserted Mughal city of Fatehpur Sikri was built by Emperor Akbar in 1569 and abandoned after fifteen years due to scarcity of water.
