Full description
Discover the phenomenal city of Agra on a private day-trip from New Delhi by India's fastest train, the Gatimaan Express. You will be picked up in the early morning at 7:00AM before being transferred to the Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway station where you will board the Gatimaan Express to Agra. A hot breakfast will be served on the train followed by tea or coffee, before you arrive to the Agra Cantt Railway Station. There you will be received from the platform upon arrival, before your guided city tour starts.

You’ll be taken on a quick guided tour of Agra’s other sights before heading to the beautiful Taj Mahal. Words can’t describe its beauty, it’s simply something you have to see for yourself. This attraction draws tourists to Agra like moths to a wondrous flame. Following the Taj, you will drive to Agra Fort. Spread out over a sprawling 94 acres, this massive red sandstone fort is also a UNESCO-listed site.

Lunch will later be served at one of the famous air-conditioned restaurants in Agra, before you visit the Tomb of I’timād-ud-Daulah (the Baby Taj), a Mughal mausoleum built in the 17th century. Often described as a “jewel box”, this building is regarded as a draft of the Taj Mahal. Once you have had your share of the local feel of Agra, you can head back to the Agra Railway Station to board your train back to New Delhi. After reaching New Delhi you will be picked up by a representative, before being transferred to the airport/your hotel.
