Tour description

This relaxed 7-hour private tour is based in the former Mughal Imperial capital city of Agra. Your tour will begin with a visit to the Agra Fort which is followed by a walk around Agra Fort Rail Station. In a fully air-conditioned vehicle with an English speaking guide, you will get the opportunity to witness the tomb of Itimad-Ud-Daulah and the Taj Mahal as well. You will also receive complimentary mineral water and will stop for lunch as well (pay directly).

You will begin the tour with a visit to the Agra Fort. Built by the third Mughal ruler Akbar in 1565, the red sandstone structure is similar to the Red Fort in Delhi. The tour will take you further towards the Agra Fort Rail Station. Here, you will be able to explore, on foot, a part of Agra which outsiders rarely have the fortune to experience. After a hearty lunch in the city (pay directly), your itinerary will guide you towards the tomb of Itimad-Ud-Daulah. The craftsmanship of Itimad-Ud-Daulah foreshadows that of the Taj Mahal. The marble tomb was commissioned by Emperor Jahangir's legendary wife Nur Jahan in the memory of her beloved father.The tour will culminate in a visit to the Taj Mahal at the brink of sunset. Now home to the graves of Shah Jahan and his wife Mumtaz Mahal, the monument is symbolic of historical love and an evidence of architectural marvel.
