Our guide, Sameer, was awesome. He was so knowledgeable about the city, the sites and the history of India. We had so much fun and enjoyed the car rides, walking and taxi time with him. I highly recommend this tour, or any tour with Kaimur...More
The Taj Mahal is one of the most iconic landmarks in the world, but most travelers miss the times of day when the Mughal monument is at its most resplendent.

You’ll also discover other stops along the way, from under-the-radar Mughal marvels to traditional handicraft stalls.
After an early morning pickup from your Agra hotel, you’ll head straight to the Taj Mahal for a guided visit while the soft golden light illuminates the romantic landmark. Take time to stroll the ornate gardens and stunning interiors as your guide enriches your visit with fact-filled stories and legends about the 17th-century site, listed as a UNESCO monument.
While many tours end there, you’ll continue your heritage journey through Agra with a stop at the impressive Agra Fort and the latticed stone tomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah. As dusk falls, you’ll head to a riverside garden for romantic sunset views of the Taj Mahal. You can also upgrade to an optional visit of Fatehpur Sikri.
Agra is a small, history-filled city in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, famous for its Mughal landmarks—including the unmissable Taj Mahal.

It also includes Agra Fort, handicraft stalls, and other stops.
