Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Taj Mahal, Dharmapuri, Forest Colony, Tajganj, Agra 282001 India

The Taj Mahal, celebrated for its architectural magnificence and aesthetic beauty. Emperor Shah Jahan built this exquisite white marble mausoleum for his favourite queen Mumtaz Mahal. The monument was commissioned in 1631 and took 20,000 artisans, 22 years to complete. Witness the dramatic interplay of light as the sun rises and casts its golden rays over the pearl white tomb, recreating the magic of the Taj.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Agra Fort Rakabgani, Agra 282003 India

the Agra Fort, an outstanding example of Mughal architecture and stronghold of the Mughal Empire under successive generations. Shah Jahan, the creater of Taj, spent the last years of his life time imprisonment awarded by his son Aurangzeb, here. It was built in the late 1560`s by their predecessor, Akbar, with later embellishments by Jahangir, his son, and Shah Jahan, his grandson.


Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Tomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah, Yamuna River, Agra 282001 India

Stop At: Fatehpur Sikri India

Fatehpur Sikri. Located 37 km from Agra, Fatehpur Sikri was built by Mughal emperor Akbar in 1571 in honour of the Sufi saint, Sheikh Salim Chisti.

The team that took care of me was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I saw the sites I wanted to see and everything operated smoothly. The communication before the trip was great as well. Would highly recommend

This was a great tour and Sumit and his team were very flexible and accommodating to our requests. We started a little bit later as there was too much fog to see and visited the Agra Fort first. Our guides for the day were very knowledgeable and interesting and were able to answer all of our questions. All of the sites are incredibly amazing and it certainly helps to have a private guide with you so that you don't get harassed by hawkers at each location. We also had a licensed photographer come with us for part of our Taj Mahal visit which meant we got access to all the good photo spots. The visits to the local marble and stone merchants was interesting, but I really don't like the sales aspect but was always expected. For those people wondering if the trip out to Fatehpur Sikri is worth it? It definitely is. This abandoned city is unlike what you will see in Agra. Each palace within the monument is so very different itself and shows the differences in heritage and religion of each Queen. It is definitely worth the extra distance and definitely not to be missed. Sumit and his team give a wonderful day and are very flexible and accommodating to their guests.

The first part of the tour in Agra was excellent - we had a very knowledgeable, helpful and entertaining guide. The guide at Fatehpur Sikri was not so good it was hard to understand what he was saying and he insisted on taking us to a place behind the mosque where they tried emotional and religious blackmail to make us buy items for donation to the mosque.

Bit of a mixed bag. The guide was on time but said very little much of the time and talked on his smartphone. He told me the tour did not include Tomb of Itmad ud Daulah but accepted it did when shown the voucher. After Agra Fort, he informed us he was leaving and another guide would meet us at Fatehpur Sikri. We were sent off with only a driver. When we went to the lunch stop, they insisted we had to pay for our lunch although we were told it was included when booking confirmed on our paperwork. As we had no guide with us, we had no option but to pay. Afternoon guide at Fatehpur Sikri was good but did drag us to shopping opportunity we did not need. Overall, OK but left a bit of a bitter taste.
