Full description
See how the light of the sun transforms the Taj Mahal on this full-day tour. After getting picked up from your hotel in Agra just before sunrise, travel to the Taj Mahal and walk straight past the long lines with your skip-the-line entrance ticket. Then, witness the sunrise over the outline of the majestic building. Enjoy a stroll through the gardens and learn all about the history, culture, and architecture of the monument.

While you wait for the sun to set, enjoy a Zardozi and Panchikari craft tour in order to understand the pattern used in the Taj Mahal and how the inlay work has been done. Discover the ancient craft of Zardozi, which is used across the world in everything from wedding dresses to wall art. Stop for a traditional Indian buffet lunch in order to refuel before heading back to the Taj Mahal.

Once back at the monument, enjoy the unique opportunity to soak up the romantic atmosphere at the other side of the river. This is the view that gives the Taj Mahal the nickname of "The Monument of Love".  On the way back to your hotel, drive past the Famous Red Fort of Agra and take a break to see the room from which Shahjahan, the Emperor who built the Taj Mahal in the memory of his wife, watched its construction.
