Full description
Start your day at 2:30 AM, when you will be picked up from any desired location in Delhi, Gurgaon, or Noida by your English-speaking driver. Then, proceed to Agra in a private air-conditioned vehicle. The duration of the journey from Delhi to Agra is approximately three hours. Your driver will gladly make stops for snacks and restroom breaks along the way. Arrive at the Taj Mahal at around 5:30 AM, where your guide will give you your skip-the-line tickets to the Taj Mahal (included in the "all inclusive" option). Then, join your guide for a tour inside the Taj Mahal, built in the 17th century by Emperor Shah Jahan for his beloved wife, Mumtaz. Your tour will end at approximately 7:30 AM and then you will have free time for breakfast. At 8:30 AM, your guide will take you to Agra Fort, where you will also have skip-the-line tickets. The fort was built in 1565 A.D by the Mughal Emperor Akbar. Here, you will have an approximately 1-hour guided tour. Or, if you select the options without a guide, you can explore these monuments at your own pace.  At 9:30 AM, you will head to Baby Taj, also know as Tomb of I'timād-ud-Daulah, where you will have an approximately 30-minute guided tour. After visiting these places, your guide will say goodbye to you at around 10:00 AM. Then, proceed back to Delhi. At approximately, 1:30 - 2:00 PM, arrive in Delhi and enjoy drop off at any desired location in Delhi, Gurgaon, or Noida. Please note that the above timing depends on the pace of the tour.

I thoroughly enjoyed my sunrise Taj Mahal tour. I opted for the driver only option, which worked out very well as I was quite happy to walk around alone at my own pace. I was picked up from my hotel in Delhi at 2:30am and we drove 3 hours to Agra. My driver Mr Harbans was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable in the car. He also told me some information about Delhi, the taj, the red fort, and other things along the road which was interesting. But he was also happy to give me some peace and let me sleep along the way! We made a toilet stop on the journey where there was a few little food places and shops so that was nice to stretch my legs. It was incredible to see the sunrise at the Taj Mahal, a true moment which made me speechless! So it made the early rise well worth it! The red fort was also very beautiful to look around and the view of the taj from there was great. The booking process was very easy.

We had an awesome time. Our driver was punctual in the morning. He came around 1:45am. He was patient and took such great care of us. Very protective and friendly driver. We were even able to do some shopping. Our tour guide, Manoj, was so knowledgeable about the history of the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Baby Taj. He made the tour entertaining and fun. The tour guide was fun, fatherly and warm. Thoroughly enjoyed our tour.
