In the evening, you can explore the local markets and shop for souvenirs, taste local street food, and interact with the locals.
On the second day, you will visit some of the lesser-known attractions in Agra, such as the Mehtab Bagh, a beautiful garden that offers stunning views of the Taj Mahal, and the abandoned city of Fatehpur Sikri, which is approximately 40 km away from Agra.
After a full day of exploring Agra, the tour will end with a journey back to Delhi, where you will be dropped off at your hotel or the designated drop-off point.
Overall, a 2-day Delhi Agra tour by car is an excellent way to experience the rich history and culture of India and to explore its most popular tourist attractions and hidden gems at a leisurely pace.

Visit the Taj Mahal at Sunrise , designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1983 sunset. The Taj was built by Shah Jahan as a memorial for his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died giving birth to their 14th child in 1631. The whole complex was not completed until 1653.
Later, proceed to Agra Fort, another UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its construction along the bank of the Yamuna River was initiated by Emperor Akbar in 1565. Further additions were made, particularly by his grandson Shah Jahan, using his favorite building material – white marble.
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.
Itimad-ud-Daulah is the first monument in India built entirely with marble. The tomb was built between 1622 and 1628 by the Queen of Jahangir, Nur Jahan as a memorial to her father, Mirza Ghiyas. Mirza Ghiyas was an imperial officer and bestowed with the title of Itmad-ud-Daulah (Pillar of State) by Emperor Jahangir.
