Enjoy an incredible guided tour of the city of Agra and discover some of its most famous landmarks. In the morning you'll be picked up from your hotel and driven to Agra to visit the world famous Taj Mahal. Situated on the banks of the river Yamuna, the Taj Mahal is a symbol of love, a poem in marble by the Mughal Emperor Shahjehan for his beloved queen Mumtaz Mahal. The Taj Mahal is made entirely from white marble and its walls are decorated with exquisite Pietra dura (stone inlay) work. It is said that different types of rare, precious and semi-precious stones were used in the intricate inlay work done on the interiors. This magnificent monument is set around a Charbagh or 'four garden' plan.
Later the tour will take you to the Agra Fort, the seat and stronghold of the Mughal Empire under successive generations. This was the seat of Mughal rule and administration and the present structure owes its origins to Akbar who erected the walls and gates and the first buildings on the eastern banks of Yamuna River. Emperor Shah Jahan added the impressive quarters and the mosque while Aurangzeb added the outer ramparts. Here you'll have the opportunity to finish the tour by visiting the Hall of Public Audience and its Royal Pavilions.
