Full description

Start your day with pick up from any desired location in Delhi, Gurgaon, or Noida by your driver and proceed to Delhi railway station. On arriving at the station, collect your train tickets from your driver and get seated before the journey begins.

Meet your guide at the Taj Mahal and get your skip-the-line tickets to the Taj Mahal (included in the "all inclusive" option). Then, join your guide for a tour inside the Taj Mahal, built in the 17th century by Emperor Shah Jahan for his beloved wife, Mumtaz. Then you will have free time for breakfast.

Afterward, your guide will take you to Agra Fort, where you will also have skip-the-line tickets. The fort was built in 1565 A.D by the Mughal Emperor Akbar. Here, you will have an approximately 1-hour guided tour.

Later, you will head to Baby Taj, also known as the Tomb of I'timād-ud-Daulah, where you will have an approximately 30-minute guided tour. After visiting these places, your guide will say goodbye to you.

Then, proceed back to Delhi by train. In the evening, arrive in Delhi and enjoy drop-off at any desired location in Delhi, Gurgaon, or Noida.

Everything was very well organised. Pickup at the hotel, follow up by the driver up to our seats in the train. Trip in the train was quick and a bit fun. If you can, take a first class ticket, it is better. At the arrival, the guide and the driver were there waiting. Taj Mahal, baby Taj Mahal, fort of Agra, and a quick step in the black Taj Mahal (enough for the pictures) well managed. Th guide was nice and the driver safe. Then back in the train (guided up to our seats again) and a driver at the arrival and back to the hotel… just perfect. And a very good French speaking guide. So it was a very nice day.

I thoroughly enjoyed my sunrise Taj Mahal tour. I opted for the driver only option, which worked out very well as I was quite happy to walk around alone at my own pace. I was picked up from my hotel in Delhi at 2:30am and we drove 3 hours to Agra. My driver Mr Harbans was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable in the car. He also told me some information about Delhi, the taj, the red fort, and other things along the road which was interesting. But he was also happy to give me some peace and let me sleep along the way! We made a toilet stop on the journey where there was a few little food places and shops so that was nice to stretch my legs. It was incredible to see the sunrise at the Taj Mahal, a true moment which made me speechless! So it made the early rise well worth it! The red fort was also very beautiful to look around and the view of the taj from there was great. The booking process was very easy.

We had an awesome time. Our driver was punctual in the morning. He came around 1:45am. He was patient and took such great care of us. Very protective and friendly driver. We were even able to do some shopping. Our tour guide, Manoj, was so knowledgeable about the history of the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Baby Taj. He made the tour entertaining and fun. The tour guide was fun, fatherly and warm. Thoroughly enjoyed our tour.
