Itinerary Details

Our operator will take you up from Delhi airport,  to a hotel in Delhi and then drive to Agra via Yamuna Express Highway. 

Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal is an ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna river in the Indian city of Agra. It was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan (reigned from 1628 to 1658), to house the tomb of his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Taj Mahal was declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1983 and it is also counted among the seven wonders of the modern world. It attracts around four million visitors annually.

Agra Fort 

The Agra Fort,is situated on the banks of Yamuna River in Agra, Uttar Pradesh. The Fort is a UNESCO World Heritage and one of the best forts in India.

Agra Fort was originally a brick fort known as Badalgarh, held by Raja Badal Singh, a Hindu Rajput king (1475 AD). Sikandar Lodi was the first Sultan of Delhi to shift his capital from Delhi to Agra. After Sikandar Lodi died in 1517, his son Ibrahim Lodi held the fort for 9 years until he was defeated and killed in the battle of Panipat in 1526. Several palaces, wells and a mosque were built in the fort during the Lodi period.

Lunch at multi – cuisine restaurant in Agra.

Tomb Of Itimad-ud-Daulah

The tomb is also known as the Jewel Box or Baby Taj as it looks like a smaller version of the Taj Mahal. It is one of the popular Agra tourist places and also one of the top attractions you must include in Agra packages. It is believed that this tomb was the inspiration behind the construction of the Taj Mahal. It is the first monument in India built entirely with marble. 

Mehtab Bagh

Mehtab Bagh is a charbagh complex and also known as (Moonlight Garden) was built by Emperor Babur in the early 1500s and the width of the gardens perfectly aligns with those of the Taj Mahal. It was then famously known as the “moonlit pleasure garden” when Emperor Shah Jahan identified it as the ideal site from which to admire the mausoleum.

After sightseeing, back to your hotel and overnight stay in Agra.

Operator will take you up from your hotel and drive to Wildlife SOS.

Asanctuary for over 200 rescued ‘dancing’ sloth bears, located in a bird sanctuary 25km outside Agra on the road to Delhi. Visitors can tour the park-like grounds and watch the bears enjoying their new, better world. It’s a project of Wildlife SOS.
