For such travel enthusiasts, Agra Day Tour Packages offers an Agra Day Tour by Car in which you get the opportunity to explore some of the most remarkable monuments in the city of Agra, while enjoying the comfort of your private car.
The tour begins from Delhi and ends at the same place on the same day. The itinerary goes as follows:
Early in the morning, our driver shall meet you at Indira Gandhi International Airport or your hotel. From here, we shall drive towards Agra. Complete the journey in less than 3 hours on Yamuna Expressway. Upon arrival to Agra, head straight towards our first destination – Taj Mahal.
The synonym for Love and Beauty, Taj Mahal is perhaps the most beautifully built monument in the world. The crystal while beauty that it wears comes from the hard work of 25000 people who worked for more than two decades placing the marble stones in the walls. Result – a monument that has acquired more appreciations than any other building in the world, including the Seventh Wonder of the World.
The most remarkable feature of Taj Mahal is its location. The monument is placed on the banks of River Yamuna, with the river flows touching its backside walls. The soothing atmosphere and the calming breeze make the entire surrounding something that makes you fall in love.
Spend some time in the monument, appreciating the hard work of the people who built it and the love of the Emperor who did something extraordinary for his beloved wife.
Dedicated to the Itmad-ud-Daula, the pillar of the Mughal Empire, Baby Taj is a beautiful monument counted for its appearance and historical value. The monument is so called due to being a replica of the Taj Mahal. Despite not being as beautiful as its larger counterpart, Baby Taj is frequented by millions of tourists every single year.
Post visiting these two places, we shall enter a restaurant to enjoy delicious lunch. You are allowed to spend some time in leisure before the journey resumes.
The second most remarkable monument in Agra, after Taj Mahal, is the Agra Fort. Also known as the Red Fort of Agra due to its red colour, the monument has its long history and prestige for being the capital of the powerful Mughal Empire. The fort was built by Mughal Emperor Akbar when he decided to move his capital to Agra, and served as the seat of power for many decades.
Agra Fort is the same place where Shah Jahan, the creator of the Taj, was imprisoned by his son Aurangzeb. Shah Jahan spent the last few years of his life in this fort before his body was graved in Taj Mahal.
Today, Agra Fort serves as a state museum. You may find quite-a-few belongings of the erstwhile rulers here, including their clothes, armoury, jewelry and others.
Post visiting these places, ride back into the car and drive towards New Delhi. Upon arrival, our driver shall transfer you at your hotel or International Airport. The Agra Day Tour by Car ends here. Thank you for being a wonderful traveller.Book Now
