Why we included this experience:

Illuminating some of India’s most revered landmarks, this private full-day tour to the Taj Mahal, the greatest monument to love ever created, also takes in the epic Agra Fort and the architectural wonder that is the Tomb of Akbar the Great in Sikandra, built over 400 years ago. Accompanied by a professional guide throughout, you’ll learn the fascinating history of these buildings, and marvel at the precision and beauty of their designs.

Experience description

Your tour begins in comfort, with an air-conditioned vehicle, as you encounter the famed Tomb of Akbar the Great. A stunning example of Mughal architecture, its towering minarets resemble those of the Taj Mahal, and the tomb building itself, in a four-layer pyramid, is a striking affair.

Next you’ll drive to the walled city of Agra, constructed of red sandstone by 4000 builders over a period of 8 years. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the fort once housed some 500 buildings, most of which were destroyed to make way for palaces and barracks. Of particular note is the Elephant Gate, guarded by two life-sized stone elephants - the fort itself was impregnable to siege by elephant due to its clever design.

The Taj Mahal, built as a mausoleum for the third wife of Shah Jahan, the Mughal emperor on the throne in the mid-17th century, is a masterpiece in white marble. Millions visit every year to roam the attractive ornamental gardens, see the world-famous dome, and the intricate decoration on the exterior walls which quote selected passages from the Koran. The design is a fusion of Islamic, Persian, Ottoman Turkish and Indian styles, an utterly unique monument that you will explore in detail with your guide.
