Marvel at the Taj Mahal, enjoy local hospitality and drop in on village life.
As one of the 7 Wonders of the Word and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Taj Mahal is one must-see monument in India. Departing from Delhi, we will stop along the way in a village where we will enjoy some chai with a local family, then arriving in Agra on time for lunch at the accommodation where we will spend the night.
With this overnight stay in Agra, you will have the chance to admire the Taj Mahal either at sunset or sunrise. We will take a walk and see the Taj from the Agra Fort and enjoy a romantic view of the beautiful mausoleum. On full moon evenings we will experience the mesmerizing effects of light on white marble, shimmering into the night.
The next morning, we will have the opportunity to visit the Taj Mahal for sunrise or the Agra Fort (depending on your choice) and then make our way to Fatehpur Sikri. Here we will enjoy Mughal architectural splendour within the walled city before leaving for Mathura—the birthplace of Lord Krishna. In Mathura, we will take a boat ride on the Yamuna River and visit various ghats before returning to Delhi.
