Day 1: Delhi—Agra 

Relax in air-conditioned comfort on the four-hour drive to Sikandra, where you will make your first stop on this multi-day tour from New Delhi. Visit the tomb of Akbar the Great—a famed Mughal emperor and get an up close look at the geometric floral designs that decorate the 5-story tomb and the impressive red sandstone gateway. Marvel in the detail of this historic space as you listen to stories from your guide about this fallen emperor.  Afterwards, join your guide for an informative walk through Agra Fort, where you’ll learn about the Pearl Mosque and glass palace of Shish Mahal. Explore the grounds and learn about this iconic structure before enjoying a traditional India lunch at a local restaurant. After your meal, head to Meena Bazaar, where you can comb through rows of local artisans selling marble figurines, precious gems and other rare goods. Take a break back at the hotel, where you’ll relax over a savory dinner. Once the sun sets you will make your way to one of India’s most iconic structures and a true highlight of this 2-day private tour of Agra for what can only be described as an experience of a lifetime. Follow your guide to the Taj Mahal, where you will be met with stunning views of this white-marble monument built to honor a fallen wife. Marvel at the shifts of color as the structure changes under the glow of the moon. Because full moons occur only once each month—with a handful of days before and after offering equally bright light—the Taj Mahal at night is an incredible experience not to be missed. 

Overnight: 3-star hotel in Agra


Day 2: Agra—Delhi (B)

Enjoy breakfast in your hotel on your second day and then head to the Taj Mahal, where you will witness the mausoleum in all its glory during a guided tour inside and around the grounds. The white-domed monument was constructed by Shah Jahan, a Mughal Emperor, for his third wife. Learn the story of their love and admire the ornate interior designs before driving to Fatehpur Sikri (the City of Victory). Your guide will describe the unique combination of Muslim and Hindu architecture found in the royal residencies, mosques and meeting halls here. Stop for lunch (own expense) on the way back to Delhi.  Please note: Thursday travelers will do both day and evening visits to the Taj Mahal on day one. All other planned visits will take place the following day (Agra Fort, Fatehpur Sikri and Akbar the Great).
