Discover the spectacular Taj Mahal and its romantic history on this private excursion to Agra by high-speed train. You'll have an English speaking guide exclusively for you - an unmissable experience!
Your private tour guide will collect you from your hotel in Delhi early in the morning, and from there you'll head to Hazrat Nizamuddin station by bus. You'll then catch the Gatiman Express, a high-speed train which reaches Agra in just 80 minutes. Enjoy breakfast on board during the journey.
When you arrive in Agra around 9:30 am, you'll be met by the tour bus which will be your mode of transport for the rest of the day. You'll head straight for the iconic Taj Mahal, a UNESCO Heritage Site and one of the Seven wonders of the World.
The Taj Mahal is a mausoleum commissioned by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. Inside and out, the buildings are an architectural marvel of intricately engraved marble, combining Hindu, Turkish, Persian and Islamic styles. Truly breathtaking!
After exploring the Taj Mahal, you'll head to Agra Fort, a majestic red stone fortress that remains one of the most important monuments from the Mughal empire. Enjoy wandering through its stunning chambers and mosques.
You'll then have free time to explore the surroundings of the fort - don't miss excellent views of the Taj Mahal - and to eat (lunch not included). Later, you'll meet back up with your guide, who will take you back to Agra train station, where you'll board the Gatiman Express again. You'll have dinner on board, and when you arrive in Delhi, you'll be dropped off back at your hotel.
