Taj Mahal Small-Group Day Trip
Proceed towards Agra by new Taj expressway. By road it takes around 4 to 5 hours to reach Agra from Delhi. Between 0900 Hrs to 0930 Hrs you would reach Agra.
Arrive at Agra and your first stop is “Taj Mahal”. Described as the most extravagant monument ever built for love, it was constructed by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan as a memorial to his queen Mumtaz Mahal and was made out of white marble took 22 years to complete (1630-1652 AD). On full moon nights, the glory of the Taj is at its best to witness. Over the centuries, the Taj has attracted more visitors than perhaps any other Monuments in the country, and it is all too easy resort to conventional superlatives when describing it. What makes the Taj unique is its perfect proportions, distinct femininity, medium of construction and ornamentation. Its marble exterior reflects rose and golden tints at sunrise and sunset, while it is dazzling white during the day and glows like a pearl in the moonlight and during the monsoon
After Taj Mahal visit, next stop is UNESCO world heritage listed Agra fort. Built by Mughal Emperor Akbar, Agra Fort is very magnificent and an architectural marvel. The exquisite palaces and massive structures inside the fort complex are really mesmerizing.
After a whole day visiting various places at Agra, your journey again to Delhi would commence between 1800 Hrs. By the midnight at 2200 Hrs drop you back at your location or hotel.

The tour and the guide was not properly planned. The tour is supposed to be a full day trip. But the program started at 07h30 and ended by 15h30 which includes more than 4 hours of travel. As per plan, we are supposed to see Taj Mahal as well as Agra Fort. We saw only the Taj Mahal. But the guide told us there is nothing to see in Agra Fort. If you want, you can see from outside. Instead he took us to places to buy Textiles and Articles. Very disappointed by the service. Not worth the money.
