Full-Day Private Tour to Bharatpur from Agra
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Pass By: Tdi Mall, Taj Mahal Road, Agra 282001 India
At approximately 5am you will be picked up from your hotel/railway station in Agra (breakfast not Include) and drive to Bharatpur arriving at approximately 6:30am. Here you will tour the famous for Keoladeo Ghana bird sanctuary, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is home to an astonishing range of flora and fauna. Take a rickshaw ride to explore this sanctuary. An abundance of birdlife is found here, including the open-bill and painted stork, egret, darter, white ibis, spoonbill, grey heron, Sarus crane, cormorant, migratory geese, duck, rosy pelican and the rare Siberian crane.
At 1pm enjoy a lunch break at a local, air-conditioned restaurant.
After lunch, take a walking tour in the village and catch a peek at the rustic ways of life in the villages of India. Explore a lifestyle that has been left largely unblemished by the complexities of modern civilization. See the sight of rural India where life still continues at the pace with which it has for thousands of years. The ancient Persian wheel drawing water from river channels and farmers hard at work with bullock drawn hoes with a backdrop of golden fields of mustard are images that are now largely extinct from all the other parts of the world.
After Bharatpur, drive to Agra and stop en route to visit Fatehpur Sikri - a UNESCO World Heritage Site which has been described as “the world’s most perfectly preserved ghost town.” Built by Akbar in the late 16th century, it was abandoned after only 14 years, and the elegant buildings of this superb walled city remain intact to this day.
You will reach Agra around 6pm and be dropped off at your hotel or the railway station in Agra.

This tour was hands down one of my top experiences in India! I'm not a birder, but I would make time to go to Keoladeo and ask for Ramesh Gupta to be a guide again if I ever get back. Ramesh was knowledgeable and his passion for birding was infectious A+! Fatehpur Sikri tour with Bobby was nice
