After pickup at your Agra hotel, airport, or railway station, set off with your guide by private, air-conditioned vehicle for the Taj Mahal, hearing about Agra’s history en route.
On arrival at the UNESCO-listed site, your guide will help you through security for a tour of this 17th-century marble mausoleum, commissioned by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as a tomb for his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Stroll the gardens and climb to the terrace to admire the inlaid marble walls and towers while learning how they took around 25 years and 20,000 laborers to complete.
Next is Agra Fort, the UNESCO-protected 16th-century fortress-palace constructed by successive Mughal rulers. Head inside this red-sandstone complex and see highlights, such as the audience halls, an octagonal tower, and Jahangiri palace, as your guide reveals their history.
Your tour finishes at your Agra hotel, the Agra train station, or airport as you wish.
