Delhi Sightseeing with Taj Mahal Extension

Marketplaces to experience India's distinct culture, color, and history

This "Taj Mahal Extension" journey begins in New Delhi and concludes there. This tour is a perfect example of a three-day vacation getaway and short break tour that brings you through Indian cities like Agra and New Delhi. "Taj Mahal Extension" is a small trip that includes transportation, hotel accommodations, and much more. Visit the majestic tribute to love, the Taj Mahal in India. One of the most outstanding masterpieces of Mughal art in the entire world. This magnificent structure was constructed by a Mughal ruler as a memorial to his late beloved wife. It continues to amaze visitors with its uplifting architecture.  Travel from Delhi to Agra to see this famous site, stopping along the route for a ton of sightseeing. Watch the amazing sunset over the Taj before visiting the majestic Red Fort made of sandstone and explore the vast deserted city of Fatehpur Sikri. On your return to Delhi, indulge in sour curries and haggle in marketplaces to experience India's distinct culture, color, and history.

Itinerary

  • Day-1 8:30 AM: Travel from Delhi to Agra

    Namaste! Greetings from India. At 8:30 am. Today, proceed to the meeting location. A journey to Old Delhi will be our first stop. Your English-speaking local guide will drive you to the city's center, teeming with bazaars' energetic atmosphere and color and with paths of winding, narrow streets filled with Indian sights, scents, and sounds. You can also take a rickshaw around the side streets to see how busy daily life is in India. After a busy morning, you can stop in Old Delhi for a lunch break before leaving Delhi. Around 2:00 PM, we will start the journey to Agra in a private air-conditioned vehicle which will take approx 5 hours. On arrival check in at hotel. Evening free for leisure time.

  • Day-2 Proceeding from Hotel to Taj

    If you want to see the Taj Mahal at dawn, your guide will pick you up from your hotel at around 6 am and brief you on the day's events. Instead, if you choose a 2 PM journey to the Taj, your guide will meet you at a time scheduled the night before. (usually around 8.30 am to visit the Red Fort first). Visit the Taj Mahal, a work of art made of glistening white marble and situated amidst lovely formal grounds. As author Rabindranath Tagore dubbed it, this "teardrop on the face of eternity" was constructed as a memorial by Emperor Shah Jahan to his beloved wife, Mumtaz. Along the shore of river Yamuna, visit the Agra Fort. The fort, which Emperor Akbar built in 1565, was initially intended to be a military building. When Shah Jahan was emperor, it was transformed into a castle, but after he lost control of the country in 1658, it turned into his prison. You will also get some spare time today to sit back, unwind, tour Agra's backstreets. It's also highly advised to stop by Sheroes Cafe, which offers work to women who have suffered acid attacks.

    Highlights : Overnight stay at Hotel in Agra

  • Day-3 10:00 AM: Travel to Fatehpur Sikri then back to Delhi

    Your English-speaking driver will meet you at your hotel after the morning breakfast. Later drive to Delhi, en route visit the abandoned Mughal realm of Fatehpur Sikri while traveling to Delhi in a private air-conditioned vehicle which will take about 4-5 hours approx. In 1569 Emperor Akbar constructed but abandoned it after 15 years due to lack of water. Jama Masjid, a striking mosque with Persian and Hindu architectural elements, is one of the city’s main attractions. The impressive 54-meter-tall Buland Darwaza, also known as the Gate of Victory, was built to honor Akbar's military success in Gujarat and serves as the mosque's primary entrance. 

    It's time to bid farewell at this point. You will continue you drive to Delhi on the way back. Will be dropped off at your Delhi accommodation by your driver. You can expect to return to Delhi around 3 p.m. Don’t book your ticket before 8 pm if you leave today because you will not get enough time to get to the airport and check-in. And here, our Taj Mahal Extension trip ends.

We, a group of 24 colleagues from a renowned MNC travelled to Agra from Gurugram on a short trip, to visit Taj Mahal. The bus was in excellent condition and the Company representative Mr. Shekhar was a great help to us. The visits were well organised, food and refreshment provided was upto the mark and the highlight of the trip was of-course the ‘Taj Mahal’

Dear Max Holidays team, I express my sincere thanks to you for your good standard of services rendered to me during my solo day trip to Agra. This was quick, safe, enjoyable and like a dream come true for me. The road condition to Agra from Express way was superb and the car you provided me was in very good condition. My driver Ramesh was doing everything to maintain hygiene in the car. I was on a short visit to Delhi for work and will come back soon for a longer trip to Rajasthan with my husband.
