Description

6am - Morning pickup from Delhi in your hotel and drive 3 hours to Agra via Yamuna Express Highway.

9am – Arrive in Agra and meet your tour guide and begin sightseeing.

9:30am - Visit the Taj Mahal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. No trip to Agra would be complete without a visit to this shimmering vision of domes and minarets. The world's best-known tomb stands testimony to the timeless love story of the 17th century Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan and his wife - Queen Mumtaz Mahal. (The Taj Mahal is closed every Friday).

12:30pm - Enjoy a photo tour of the Taj Mahal from Mehtab Bagh, The Moonlight Garden, believed to have been designed by Shah Jahan to view the Taj on moonlit nights, far away from the maddening crowd, The garden complex is situated on the left bank of Yamuna opposite the Taj Mahal. It is a huge square measuring approximately 300 by 300 meters and in straight alignment with the Taj Mahal. The forestry, plantations and agricultural fields provide a green forecourt to the Taj Mahal and its reflection in Yamuna.

1pm - Enjoy a break for buffet lunch at one of the best local restaurants.

2pm - Visit Agra Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, built by Emperor Akbar in 1565 A.D. This huge fort is made of red sandstone. The elegant buildings inside reflect an interesting synthesis of Hindu and Central Asian architectural styles. The maze of the courtyards, mosques and private chambers of the fort echo the story of the Mughal Empire.

4pm - Enjoy shopping in Agra, which is known for its fabulous handicrafts, made of marble and soft-stone inlay work. The Mughals were great patrons of arts and crafts. Empress Nur Jahan took personal interest and was an accomplished artist herself in zari embroidery work. Agra's major handicraft products besides inlay work are leather-ware, brass-ware, carpets, jewelry and embroidery work.

6pm – After a memorable day, drive back to Delhi, by 9pm, where you will be dropped off at your hotel or airport.
