Witness the Taj Mahal on this Agra tour package!
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. We’ll take you on a journey via train to Agra.
Once in Agra, you’ll have the independence and freedom roam around Taj Mahal and Agra Fort at your own pace. Instead of accompanying you throughout, your friendly guide from Reality shall provide you with the historical background, stories and information needed to frame your self-guided exploration–prior to entering these sites.
Note that your guide will accompany you to Delhi to Agra and back again on this day tour.
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. Upon arrival, we’ll hop on a tuk-tuk and decide the itinerary for the day. While in Agra, we’ll also have 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 can also include an optional stop at Sheroes Café.
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.
To be confirmed, depending on train departure
6:30am – evening
It takes 3.5 hours to drive to Agra from Delhi. We will travel in a private air-conditioned car and stop at a small village for a chai on the way there to break up the journey.
Entry fees to the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort are not included in the tour price.
We would highly recommend including the fort in your day. Although less well-known, it is very impressive and our guests are always happy they went. It also has an interesting view of the Taj Mahal. But if you would like to skip it, we can.
We’ll have a home-cooked vegetarian lunch that will certainly include roti and a few vegetable dishes. Sometimes we have dishes such as dal (lentils), mixed vegetable curry and paneer vegetable curry.
Yes, your guide from Reality Tours will accompany you the whole day. When we go into the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort we will be assisted by a local guide.
Yes, no problem, it will just cost a bit more.
Because the Taj Mahal is closed on Fridays!
We leave at the crack of dawn to avoid the notorious Delhi traffic and to ensure we have time to visit both the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort before the sun sets.
Absolutely. Please get in touch if you are organising a group visit and we would be happy to help. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Yes, we can drop you in Agra and you can continue on from there but the tour will still be the same price. Also, be sure to look into your onward transport options in advance as this can sometimes be expensive.
Highly recommended this tour to Taj and Red Fort.. We had Chitti as our guide frim Delhi. He met us at the train station and accompanied us throughout the day. Just the right mix of information, conversation and quiet time on the journey. Chitti had excellent English and was flexible in how we used the time between the end of sightseeing and getting the train back to Dehli. (We chose to sitting in Costa!).
The Homestay lunch was extensive . High quality and in a lovely setting. The Taj and Red Fort guide who took us and Chitti around the sites had equally good English and gave information in a clear and interesting way. Chitti ensured we were able to get home from the station on our return at the end of the day and helped us find a taxi. Will use Reality Tours again.
