Witness the Taj Mahal and get an insight into rural village life on this one day Agra tour!
The Taj Mahal is one of those rare world famous sights that exceeds expectations. Any trip to Delhi is not complete without a visit to Agra, taking 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 for 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 on this day tour.
Learn about village life as we stop for a chai with community members of a small village en route to Agra. Your guide will be there to facilitate any questions you may have.
Gape in awe at the Taj Mahal. Spend some time wandering around the courtyard, taking in the architecture, history, and refined beauty of this world-famous mausoleum.
Afterwards, we stop at a local family’s house for a delicious home-made vegetarian lunch. Get ready to feast!
Agra is also home to the impressive, 94-acre Agra Fort that, although often overshadowed by the Taj, is spectacular in its own right.
6:30am – evening
Our guide Shehnaz was amazing, we had a wonderful time and learned a lot from her and from the local guide.
The high light was definitely visiting the village in the morning, and the homecooked meal we shared with her befor heading home.
It’s a really good grade when your guide and extra activities outshine the Taj Mahal.
We booked a evening street food tour in Delhi and the Agra day tour with reality tours and we highly recommend this company! Great guides and a community caring philosophy! We will be back! Esther and Diane
