What to expect

Get ready for a one of a kind experience with this tour of the cities of Agra and Fatehpur Sikri. First of all, you'll be picked-up from your respective hotel and driven to Agra to visit the world famous Taj Mahal. Perhaps no other monument epitomizes India as 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, made entirely of white marble with its walls decorated with exquisite pietradura (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.

Later you'll visit the Agra Fort, the seat and the 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. Here you'll have the chance of visiting its Hall of Public Audience and its Royal Pavilions.

The tour will then take you to Fatehpur Sikri, the old capital city of Akbar, abandoned later due to scarcity of water.This complex in red sandstone is considered to be more beautiful than the Taj Mahal by many visitors. Post tour of Fatehpur Sikri, you shall be driven back to Agra and transfer to your hotel of stay.
