  • Private Taj Mahal & Agra Tour from Delhi by Car

    1. Private Taj Mahal & Agra Tour from Delhi by Car

    Begin your full day Taj Mahal and Agra Fort tour with a pick-up from your hotel in the Delhi NCR area or the airport starting any time between 4.00 and 10.00 am, to depart to Agra city via the expressway. Meet your private guide when you arrive in Agra city and proceed to the Taj Mahal, which was built in the 17th century by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as a memorial for his beloved wife Mumtaz. After touring the Taj Mahal, head to the nearby Agra Fort, built in 1565 A.D. and another majestic creation of the Mughal Emperor Akbar. Begin the drive back to your hotel in Delhi after enjoying a lunch in Agra, for which your guide can give you an overview and suggestions for the best restaurants in the city. 

    I was very hesitant & nervous to book a tour as a solo female traveler but took the leap & I’m so glad I did!!! Right after I booked online, the time and location were confirmed within an hour. On the day of the tour, the driver was friendly and the car was clean and comfortable. We then picked up my tour guide Ashik & he was just amazing! He made this tour even better than I expected. He knew all the best photo locations & took a ton of great photos. He shared some very interesting facts too. We ended the day at a local restaurant where I got to try some authentic local cuisine. I HIGHLY recommend this tour and Ashik!

    The tour was exceptionally well executed: the taxi pick up and drop offs were seamless, walked to specific train and guided to our train seats. Guide was charming, attentive, and informative. Taken to a very good Indian restaurant (which was not included in price). Enjoyed visiting Baby Taj, and skipped walking into Fort, as I had been there before. Feedback was given to tour agency: provide box lunches from better catering company and skip the train food. Really not appetizing. You might want to bring your own food.

    Our guide was very knowledgeable and approachable. We would recommend him to other travellers. Our driver was exceptional. My only disappointment was that the Tarj Mahal tour was described as a sunrise tour so we expected to see the sunrise over the Tarj however, by the time we arrived the sun was already up?

We were picked up on time and our driver was good. Our tour guide Shain was extremely friendly and helpful, we would recommend taking a tour with him at any time. The sunrise tour was a great option because there weren't as many tourists crowding, and we thoroughly enjoyed hearing about the history at the Agra Fort. I especially enjoyed how Shain always offered to take our picture and showed us the best photo opportunities. Thanks for the wonderful experience!

Private car, driver and guide was absolutely great. I unfortunately lost the name of our driver but he was very nice and kind. Took us to breakfast before the long 3.5 hours to Agra. Once in Agra we picked up our guide Akil who was fantastic. Showed us all around the Taj, baby Taj and the Agra Fort. Lunch was at a great restaurant. Overall a great value for the $ and we tipped well! Definitely worth a day trip so I recommend making the time!

The organisation for our trip was fantastic. We were booked at the same time as Holi Festival which meant the monuments were closed on one of the days. Our driver and guide reorganised the itinerary which meant we could participate in the festival as well as see the amazing sights.

A magical day with a very high quality guide. Very professional and mastering the history of the place very well. Very available for all other requests.

Perfectly organized, friendly driver. Ask for Faizal to be your guide.
