Full description
Experience a private 5-hour half-day tour of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort.

In the morning, there will be a 5:30 AM pickup from your hotel by your driver/guide. You will be driven in a private air-conditioned vehicle towards India's most famous heritage site, The Taj Mahal. The Taj Mahal, which was built in the 17th century by Emperor Shah Jahan for his beloved wife, took 22 years to complete. It's surely the most extravagant expression of love ever created. You will enjoy the most alluring view of Taj Mahal in the relative quiet of the early morning, shrouded in mists and bathed in a soft morning glow. As its vast marble surfaces fall into the shadow or reflect the sun, the color changes from soft grey and yellow to pearly cream and dazzling white. After the Taj Mahal sunrise tour, you will be taken back to your hotel or to another location for breakfast.

After breakfast, visit the Agra Fort. The Agra Fort a majestic creation by the Mughal Emperor, Akbar The Great. It's made of red sandstone and houses many beautiful palaces such as Diwan E Aam, Khas Mahal, Pearl Mosque, and Musamman Burj. It was here that Aurangzeb imprisoned his father, Shah Jahan.

After completing the tour, you'll be dropped back at your hotel or any desired place in Agra city.
