Taj Mahal Day Trip from Delhi
This tour comes with two different options, sunrise tour and morning tour:
Taj Mahal Sunrise Tour
We will collect you from your hotel in Delhi at 3 am and head south to Agra, the old capital of the Mughal Empire. After approximately three hours we will arrive at our first stop - the Taj Mahal.

With the first light of morning, we will tour the Islamic, Persian and Turkish style gardens which surround the Taj Mahal before entering the temple to contemplate its ornate interior. While we explore the magnificent complex, the guide will reveal the story of how it became a memorial to the emperor’s deceased wife, the beautiful Mumtaz Mahal.
After visiting the Taj Mahal, we continue our tour at Agra Fort, the largest in the country. This grand red citadel has been declared a World Heritage Site. Are you familiar with the legends of this place?
To recharge our batteries, we will head to a local restaurant, where you can enjoy a delicious typical breakfast (not included). After eating, we will visit best viewpoint of the Taj Mahal on the banks of the Yamuna River.
