This is a perfect half-day tour for travelers who are planning a short stay in Agra and interested in visiting two of the must-see attractions - Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. Enjoy the convenient hotel or airport/railway station transfer service while learning the history of Agra and its famous monuments.

  • Delve deeper into the history of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort with a guide
  • Ideal for time-pressed visitors, with choice of pickup and drop-off points
What to Expect
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.
