Just outside Agra Cantonment train station the prepaid taxi booth (24hr) gives a good idea of what taxis should cost. Taxis take up to four people: from the station to any five-star hotel is Rs 120 (AC Rs 150), while a three-hour tour costs Rs 300 (AC Rs 375) and a four-hour tour costs Rs 450 (AC Rs 650). An eight-hour tour is Rs 650 (AC Rs 950) or Rs 950 (AC Rs 1400) if it includes Fatehpur Sikri. A four-hour trip to Fatehpur Sikri costs Rs 600 (AC Rs 900). A return trip to Mathura costs Rs 750 or Rs 950 if it includes Vrindavan, while a return trip to the wonderful bird sanctuary at Bharatpur costs Rs 950, including waiting time. Further afield, one way to Delhi is Rs 2500 and Jaipur Rs 2700.
Bicycles can be rented from Raja Bicycle Store (per day Rs 50; 8am-8.30pm) in Taj Ganj, but getting between monuments is a long, hot ride and the traffic is horrendous.
