Witness the Taj Mahal and get an insight into rural village life on the way!

The Taj Mahal is one of those rare world famous sights that lives up to and even exceeds expectations. Any trip to Delhi is not complete without a visit to Agra to take in this jaw-dropping architectural marvel. But we want to take you deeper.

While the Taj Mahal is the must-see sight, Agra

Fort is also spectacular and would be the crowning jewel of almost any other city. On the way south to Agra we’ll stop off for breakfast and have a chai with some of our friends in a small village. While in Agra, between visits to the two big sights, we’ll have a home-cooked lunch in a local home. The day will be a balance of must-see sights and local

cultural experiences – the perfect day in India! We will visit the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort with the assistance of locally certified expert guides. Your friendly guide from Reality will be with you the entire time as we travel from Delhi to Agra and back again.
