Taj Mahal Extension
Tour from Delhi to Agra and see the Taj Mahal
Journey to India’s famous Taj Mahal, a majestic monument to love. Built by a Mughal emperor as tribute to his late wife, this incredible structure continually astounds visitors with its inspiring architecture and remains one of the worlds finest examples of Muslim art. Beginning in Delhi, journey to Agra to see this iconic sight, enjoying plenty of sightseeing along the way. Watch the sun rise over the ‘Taj’ before taking a trip to the magnificent red sandstone Red Fort. Experience the expansive deserted city of Fatehpur Sikri and the tomb of Akbar the Great in Sikandra. Returning to Delhi, sample spicy curries, bargain at the markets and interact with locals to get a feel for the unforgettable culture, colour and character of India.
Taj Mahal Extension SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Dive into the colour and chaos of Old Delhi on a guided tour. Wander through markets, explore temples and visit historical sites. Almost everything is for sale in the backstreets of the city, from wedding paraphernalia to fireworks. In the afternoon travel to Agra in a private air-conditioned vehicle.
Watch as the morning light plays over the Taj Mahal, changing the marble from dusky purple to pale blue to gold-white. Worked on by over 20,000 builders and artisans, this awesome structure is testament to the Emperor Shah Jahan's love for his second wife, Mumtaz. Discover Agra's other impressive monument, the Red Fort, an imperial Mughal city that houses a palace, mosque and harem quarters within its 2.5 kilometre long walls.
Visit Sikandra to visit the Mughal Emperor Akbar's tomb before heading back to Delhi where this excursion concludes.
