Full description
Book your tickets to the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort in advance, and save time. Avoid the stress of waiting in line and choose a convenient time slot so you can plan your day in advance.

The Taj Mahal is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, admired for its beautiful Mughal architecture. One of the 7 Wonders of the World, this mausoleum was commissioned by Shah Jahan for his wife in 1631. Spend time walking around and admiring the minarets, fountains, and adjoining gardens. A sunrise visit is highly recommended for a memorable experience and to avoid crowds.

For additional sightseeing, the Agra Fort is another stunning display of architecture. The majestic red-walled fort is spread out on 94 acres, about 2 miles away from the Taj Mahal. Another UNESCO World Heritage Site, this site used to be the home to Mughal emperors before Delhi became the capital of India. Walk around the distinctive halls, Diwan-i-Am and Diwan-i-khaas, and observe the ornate mirror work in Sheesh Mahal.

As a solo traveller, I found this tour so suitable, all thanks to my guide Mr Wasim. He knows and understands the moments of solitude and reflection that solo travellers need especially at great monuments. Mr Wasim is very articulate in explaining the histories of the places we went. He revealed to me the uniqueness of various nooks and crannies of each site that are special knowledge. Mr Wasim is a very flexible and a very understanding host. I have never found any host better than him for Agra.

We booked the Taj Mahal & Agra Fort guided tour and everything about this day was amazing! We was staying near the Taj Mahal at the Taj Hotel & Convention Center which is just a 10 minute walk to the Taj East Entrance. Our Guide Waseem met us at our hotel at 6.30am as we wanted to get there early and avoid the crowds. He told us all we needed to know about the history and culture of the Taj, helped us take photos, gave us some time to enjoy the views by ourselves too! Afterwards, we headed back to have some breakfast in our hotel and then met back up with him to go to Agra Fort, which again was amazing and he told us all about the history and culture too. Overall a great, very relaxed day with a great guide!! Thanks Waseem! Aimee & Jagmeet
