Description About Agra Sightseeing

Agra Sightseeing is one the best tour always and you will see places like Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Fatehpur Sikri & many more places in this package. If you are in the national capital, then you cannot give the Taj Mahal a miss. Located in the state of Uttar Pradesh, Agra is just a 3-hour drive away from Delhi and can comfortably be covered in a day. Agra Fort and the Taj Mahal are just 2.5 kilometers from each other and both are UNESCO World Heritage sites. Both monuments will take you back in time displaying the Mughal architecture’s finest work.

 

What to expect in Agra Sightseeing Tour

A fulfilling experience visiting India’s most iconic landmark: The Taj Mahal which is hailed as the most beautiful building on the planet by many. One must have seen various pictures of the Taj Mahal but experiencing it in person is a surreal experience and the first glimpse of it through the arched gate will leave you breathless with awe. The imposing Agra Fort is equally stupendous and will take you back in time as you explore the various courtyards in the fort. It is one of the finest Mughal Forts in the country and was guarded by a crocodile-infested moat back in the day.

 
Note: Taj Mahal remains closed on Fridays for general public viewing so please plan the travel accordingly.
