Agra Overnight Tour By car

TOUR OVERVIEW

Overnight 

On an Agra Overnight tour by car, take in the Mughal architecture. Emperor Shah Jahan created the Taj Mahal, commonly regarded as the symbol of love, out of white marble on the banks of the Yamuna River in Agra, India. Agra, home to the world-famous Taj Mahal… but there’s more!

It would be a mistake to believe that Agra is exclusively known for the World’s Wonder Taj Mahal. This city is around 200 kilometres from Delhi and is located in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. It does have a rich historical heritage, as seen by the numerous and diverse monuments in and around the city centre.

While it is feasible to see a handful of Agra’s most stunning structures in a single day (see our “Same Day Agra Tour” and “Same Day Agra Tour by Express Train”), sightseeing all of them is difficult. The “Two Days in Agra Tour” will allow you to see the city in depth and ensure that you do not miss any of Agra’s beauties.

Taj Mahal:

The Taj Mahal is a symbol of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan’s unending love for his adored wife, Mumtaz. It will undoubtedly be the highlight of your trip to Agra. You will have enough opportunity to explore the white-marble tomb and snap photographs throughout the trip.

Agra Fort:

The Mughal Emperor Akbar erected Agra Fort, his ancient citadel composed of red sandstones, between 1565 and 1573, although it took four Mughal Emperors 95 years to finish. For over a century, it was the Mughal Emperors’ primary palace.

Tomb of Itimad-Ud-Daula:

Itimad-Ud-Daula: Nur Jahan, the wife of Mughal Emperor Jahangir, erected this tomb for her father. It is frequently referred to as the “Baby Taj Mahal” since it is claimed to have acted as a draught for the Taj Mahal, which was erected later.

 Akbar’s Tomb:

The tomb of Mughal Emperor Akbar is housed in Akbar’s Tomb, which is built in a unique manner. The construction of the monument is remarkable, combining red sandstone and white marble.

Mehtab Bagh:

On the other side of the Yamuna River, facing the Taj Mahal, are these tranquil and underappreciated gardens. They provide tourists with a different perspective of the mausoleum and the river, especially after sunset.

Fatehpur Sikri:

This historic abandoned city, Fatehpur Sikri, was built by Emperor Akbar. It is less than 40 kilometres from Agra. It was completed in 1571 and served as the Mughal Empire’s capital for barely 14 years. While walking through its empty lanes, you can find Mughal architectural treasures.

Throughout the two days, you will be accompanied by an experienced English-speaking guide who is a native of Agra and will ensure that you do not miss any of the city’s secrets. All transfers will be in a comfortable air-conditioned automobile that will pick you up in Delhi and drop you off at the place of your choosing in Delhi.

The particular details and programme must be agreed according on your preferences, travel plans, and time limits (hotel of your choice, time and precise pick-up location, and so on…).
