Your Itinerary

Agra Fort

Start your day with an afternoon 2pm pickup from your Agra hotel, Agra Airport or other desired location in Agra and visit the Unesco World Heritage Site the fascinating Agra Fort (where Shah Jahan was imprisoned for the last years of his life, peering dolefully out at his masterpiece - The Taj Mahal). It was the main residence of the emperors of the Mughal Dynasty until 1638 and one of the finest Mughal forts in India. The imposing red sandstone fort combines both Hindu and Central Asian architectural styles. Walking through courtyard after courtyard of this palatial red-sandstone and marble fortress, your amazement grows as the scale of what was built here begins to sink in.

Admission Included

Taj Mahal

Head to the breathtaking Taj Mahal to see the sunset over the World Heritage Site. Introduce yourselves to what the Victorian Viceroy Lord Curzon called the “gem of man’s handiwork…the most perfect structure in the world. As the sun set you will experience the change in color and ambiance and it took on a warm rose hue. It is at its most magical at sunrise and sunset. There are also fewer people at these times so you can enjoy a much more intimate experience. Soon after visiting The Taj Mahal visit a marble inlay studio (after seeing the exquisite Taj inlays, you must want to know how this marble magic works). At the end of the day, your guide returns you to your hotel, Agra train station or other desired location in Agra.
