Full description

Discover the famous Taj Mahal at sunrise on this guided tour. Choose a private tour with a delicious breakfast at a hotel or a group tour and explore Agra Fort, the Baby Taj, and the Taj Mahal.

Begin your day with an early 3:00 AM pickup from your hotel in Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, or the airport. Drive to Agra, enjoying a peaceful 3-hour ride in either a private or shared air-conditioned car.

Arrive in Agra at 6:00 AM and meet with your tour guide before proceeding to visit the Taj Mahal. Explore the Taj Mahal whilst enjoying its sunrise views, spending around 2-3 hours in the mausoleum.

Continue to Agra Fort, built by the Great Mughal Emperor "Akbar". Spend around an hour exploring this sight before stopping at a 5* hotel for a delicious breakfast (costs included depending on the option).

Next, if you are not in a hurry and also want to explore more, visit Itimad-Ud-Daulah (Baby Taj). At 10:00 AM, drive back to New Delhi, and at 1:00 PM you will arrive back at your point of origin or Delhi Airport.

Good information before hand. Driver was punctually for the pick up. Car could have been more comfortable and we had to tell the driver to stop looking at the phone while driving. Guide was excellent. Helped us with great photos at Taj Mahal. We also had a great tour at the Agra Fort. Breakfast could we have skipped, as we got other better recommendations. Selection at Marriott was not the best. However the selection of Indian breakfast was good.

I booked a private tour with Delight Tour to Taj Mahal. My tourguide name is Islam. The tour was amazing. On time from the pick up at the hotel, driver was excellent. Islam provides me good knowledge about the Taj. Not only that, he gave me tips and took me amazing photos. Highly recommend tour and tourguide Islam

We highly recommend booking this tour form 3am drive to arrive in Agra by 6am. You get to experience the Taj Mahal at sunrise and avoid both traffic on the roads and crowds at the sites. We had Smith as our tour guide and Myer as our driver from Delhi to Agra. The transport was great with water and sweets in the back for us to enjoy. The guide for Taj Mahal and Red Fort was also amazing as Smith was both friendly and knowledgeable with the history. He also took brilliant pictures. The reason we can't give this five stars is because we feel the end of the activity was ruined by the fact we were taken without proper explanation into a souvenir shop where the shopkeeper was putting a lot of pressure on us to buy something. Multiple times we said no and we tried to leave but he still persisted. It was clear when we finally left the shop that this was arranged as the shopkeeper and the tour guide exchanged a look of disappointment.
